Moving like Pharaoh's Chariots

But he that does his recreation or his merchandise cheerfully, promptly, readily, and busily, and the works of religion slowly, flatly, and without appetite; and the spirit moves like Pharaoh's chariots when the wheels were off; it is a sign that his heart is not right with God, but it cleaves too much to the world.

- Jeremy Taylor, The Rule and Exercises of Holy Living (1649). This edition: Cleveland: World, 1956, p. 26.
