In this book Henry writes, "Next to the beauty of holiness, which is the soul's agreement with God, is the beauty of meekness, which is the soul's agreement with itself. Behold how good and how pleasant a thing it is for the powers of the soul to dwell in unity, the reason knowing how to rule, and the affections at the same time knowing how to obey."
