"Therefore, thought I, what God says, is best, though all the men in the world are against it:
Seeing then that God prefers his religion; seeing God prefers a tender Conscience;
seeing they that make themselves fools for the Kingdom of Heaven, are wisest;
and that the poor man that loveth Christ, is richer than the greatest man in the world that hates him; Shame, depart, thou art an Enemy to my Salvation; shall I entertain thee against my Sovereign Lord?"
~from The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan~
