John Donne Quote

A memory of yesterday's pleasures, a fear of tomorrow's dangers, a straw under my knee, a noise in mine ear, a light in mine eye, an anything, a nothing, a fancy, a chimera in my brain, troubles me in my prayer. So certainly is there nothing, nothing in spiritual things, perfect in this world.


LXXX Sermons (1640) 12 December 1626 'At the Funeral of Sir William Cokayne'
