Jeremiah Burroughs on Contentment

“Not only must the tongue hold its peace: the soul must be silent.  Many may sit silently, refraining from discontented expressions, yet inwardly they are bursting with discontent.  This shows a complicated disorder and great perversity in their hearts.  Notwithstanding their outward silence, God hears the peevish,18 fretful language of their souls.  A shoe may be smooth and neat outside, while inside it pinches the flesh. Outwardly, there may be great calmness and stillness, yet within, amazing confusion, bitterness, disturbance, and vexation.”
