Greater Things to Mind

Vincent van Gogh - Old Woman Seen from Behind F913Time is short, and ere long we will be at our journey’s end. The world’s smiles will no more follow us, neither will the frowns of it reach us. Eternity is before us, and we have greater things to mind than our condition here. One traveller walks with a rough stick in his hand, and another with a cane: the matter is small which of them be thine, for at the journey’s end both of them shall be laid aside.

~Thomas Boston, Works, 2:341
