Thou wilt come to raise my body from the dust, and re-unite it to my soul, by a wonderful work of infinite power and love, greater than that which bounds the ocean’s waters, ebbs and flows the tides, keeps the stars in their courses, and gives life to all creatures.
~ The Valley of Vision: [A Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions]
This earthly body is slow and heavy in all its motions, listless and soon tired with action. But our heavenly bodies shall be as fire; as active and as nimble as our thoughts are.
~ Benjamin Calamy, [Sermons Preached upon Several Occasions by Benjamin Calamy]
