PATRICK, Simon Quotes
(1626-1707), English divine
Peace is the proper result of the Christian temper. It is the great kindness which our religion doth us, that it brings us to a settledness of mind, and a consistency within ourselves.
It is distrust of God, to be troubled about what is to come; impatience against God, to be troubled with what is present; and anger at God to be troubled for what is past.
