 "Self and the flesh seductively whisper, 'Thou hast a life of many necessities; earn thy bread and eat it; and pay thyself for all thy trouble with a warm hearth and a soft bed.' The voice of God thunders in reply, 'Thy life is short, thy work is great, thy God is near, thy heaven is far; do I not sent thee forth, armed with thought, and speech, and a strong right hand, to contend with the evil and avenge the good? Indulge no more, or I shall leave thee: do thy best, and faint not: take up thy free will, and come with me.' Martineau.
