I am a creature of a day. I want to know one thing—the way to heaven; how to land safely on that happy shore. God Himself has condescended to teach me the way; for this very end He came down from heaven. He has written it down in a book. O give me that Book! At any price give me the Book of God! I have it; here is knowledge enough for me. Let me be homo unius libri (a man of one book). Here, then, I am, far from the busy ways of men. I sit down alone; only God is here. In His presence I open, I read His Book; for this end—to find the way to heaven. J. Wesley
