A Quote by James I of England on contempt, corruption, gifts, god, good, and vanity

Herein is not only a great vanity, but a great contempt of God's good gifts, that the sweetness of man's breath, being a good gift of God, should be willfully corrupted by this stinking smoke.

James I (1566 - 1625)
