'...let no saints judge themselves not to be beloved, because they are tempted. It is natural for saints to be tempted, that are dearly beloved, as it is for the sun to shine, or a bird to sing. The eagle complains not of her wings, nor the peacock of his train, nor the nightingale of her voice, because they are natural to them; no more should saints of their tempttaions, becasue they are natural to them.'
Thomas Brooks, Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices, p.177.
