"Nothing is more powerful to engage our affections than to find that we are beloved. Expressions of kindness are always pleasing and acceptable unto us, though the person should be otherwise mean and contemptible: but, to have the love of one who is altogether lovely, to know that the glorious Majesty of heaven hath any regard unto us, how must it astonish and delight us, how must it overcome our spirits, and melt our hearts and put our whole soul into a flame!"

- Henry Scougal - from his book The Life of God in the Soul of Man
