Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. – Colossians 3:2 (RSV)

*   *   *

As George Fox advised early Friends: “Therefore, keep all in modesty and plainness, fervency and sincerity and be circumspect. For they that follow these things that the world’s spirit invents daily cannot be solid.”

*   *   *

The Light and Spirit here spoken of, being one in Being, and not divided, but distinguished only in Degrees of Discoveries; for this Spirit is a Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the Knowledge of Jesus Christ, which openeth and enlightneth the Eye of the Understanding, and giveth to know what is the Hope of the Calling of Christ Jesus, and what is the Riches of the Glory of his Inheritance in the Saints. (Elizabeth Bathurst, 1655?-1685)
