“We ordinarily and naturally lack the ability to raise and extract holy and useful considerations and thoughts from all ordinary occurrences and occasions.  But a heart which is sanctified, in whose affections true grace is enkindled, will out of all God’s dealings with him, out of the things he sees and hears, will distil holy and sweet, useful meditations from them.”  Thomas Goodwin  (1600-1679)

“The soul of man unconverted is no other than a den of impure lusts, wherein dwell pride, uncleanness, avarice, malice, etc., just as Babylon is described, Rev. 18:2, or as Isa, 13:21.  Were a man’s eyes opened, he would as much abhor to remain with himself in that condition as to dwell in a house full of snakes and serpents.”  Robert Leighton  (1611-1684)
