| The day of rest comes but once a week, and
sorry am I that it does not come oftener. Man is so constituted that he
can stand more rest than this. I often think regretfully that it would have
been so easy to have two Sunday's in a week, and yet it was not so ordained.
The omnipotent Creator could have made the world in three days just as easily
as he made it in six, and this would have doubled the Sundays. Still it
is not our place to criticize the wisdom of the Creator.
- "Reflections on the Sabbath"
But we were good boys...we didn't break the Sabbath often enough to signify--once
a week perhaps...Anyway, we were good Presbyterian boys when the weather
was doubtful; when it was fair, we did wander a little from the fold.
