(Jonathan Edwards, "Resolutions")

Resolved, never to lose one moment of time; but
to improve it the most profitable way I possibly can.

Resolved, to maintain the strictest temperance
in eating and drinking.

Resolved, never henceforward, until I die, to
act as if I were any way my own; but entirely
and altogether God's.

Resolved, to endeavor to my utmost to act as
I think I would do, if I had already seen the
happiness of heaven, and the torments of hell.
