“We may compass ourselves with sparks of security, and afterwards be secured in eternal misery.  This world is a floating island, and so sure as we cast anchor upon it, we shall be carried away by it. God, and all that he has made, is not more than God without anything that he has made.  He can never want treasure who has such a golden mine.  He is enough without the creature, but the creature is not anything without Him.  It is, therefore, better to enjoy him without anything else, than to enjoy everything else without him.  It is better to be a wooden vessel filled with wine, than a golden one filled with water.” William Secker’s Nonsuch Professor, 1660
