“Remember that it is not hasty reading—but 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 honey—but her abiding for a
time on the flower which draws out the sweet.
It is not he who reads most, but he who meditates
most—who will prove to be the choicest,
sweetest, wisest, and strongest Christian.”
