Remember that it is not hasty readingóbut serious
meditation on holy and heavenly truths, which makes
them prove sweet and profitable to the soul.
It is not the mere touching of the flower by the
bee which gathers honeyóbut her abiding for a
time on the flower which draws out the sweet.
It is not he who reads most, but he who meditates
mostówho will prove to be the choicest,
sweetest, wisest and strongest Christian.
