"Not to be afflicted is a sign of weakness; for, therefore God
imposeth no more on me, because he sees I can bear no more."
—Joseph Hall

"When we grow careless of keeping our souls, then God recovers our
taste of good things again by sharp crosses."
—Richard Sibbes

"The winter prepares the earth for the spring, so do afflictions
sanctified prepare the soul for glory."
—Richard Sibbes

"Do not even such things as are most bitter to the flesh, tend to
awaken Christians to faith and prayer, to a sight of the emptiness of
this world, and the fadingness of the best it yield?... How then can
we be offended at things by which we reap so much good?"
—John Bunyan

"As the wicked are hurt by the best things, so the godly are bettered
by the worst."
—William Jenkyn

"He that rides to be crowned, will not think much of a rainy day."
—John Trapp

"Afflictions are light when compared with what we really deserve. They
are light when compared with the sufferings of the Lord Jesus. But
perhaps their real lightness is best seen by comparing them with the
weight of glory which is awaiting us."
—Arthur W. Pink
