A Quote by John Taylor on corruption, mind, people, saints, and suffering

I used to think, if I were the Lord, I would not suffer people to be tried as they are. But I have changed my mind on that subject. Now I think I would, if I were the Lord, because it purges out the meanness and corruption that stick around the saints, like flies around molasses.

John Taylor (1808 - 1887)
