Excerpt from A Sermon, on Occasion of the Death of Mrs. George W. Heard, Preached in the First Church at Ipswich, August 20, 1865, Vol. 6
Now, this all does not come from occasional, or superficial views of God, and a few lessons taught by a painful teacher. Long years, with some, are passed in the school of Christ, before the soul has come to live in that habitual and sweet composure, which the disturbances and vexations, the petty annoyances common to life, and even the insults and wrongs inﬂicted by men, and the chastisements of our heavenly Father's hand, though they ripple the spirit as they pass, cannot toss into a foam of unrest. Happy he, who learns betimes this secret hidden in God, of the happiest life on earth.
