_Wherefore, beloved… be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot, and blameless_,–                             2 PETER iii. 14.
His conscience knows no secret stings, While grace and joy combine To form a life whose holy springs Are hidden and divine.
I. WATTS
Even the smallest discontent of conscience may render turbid the whole temper of the mind; but only produce the effort that restores its peace, and over the whole atmosphere a breath of unexpected purity is spread; doubt and irritability pass as clouds away; the withered sympathies of earth and home open their leaves and live; and through the clearest blue the deep is seen of the heaven where God resides.
J. MARTINEAU.
The state of mind which is described as meekness, or quietness of spirit, is characterized in a high degree by inward harmony. There is not, as formerly, that inward jarring of thought contending with thought, and conscience asserting rights which it could not maintain.
T. C. UPHAM.
