Quote of the Day: William Law

William Law in his Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life writes:

"When a man proposes to be happy in ways of ambition, by raising himself to some imaginary heights above other people; this is truly an invention of happiness which has not foundation in nature [that is God's created order], but is as mere a cheat of our own making as if a man should intend to make himself happy by climbing up a ladder."
