“When a man has a toothache the world says, ‘Poor man’; when a man’s wife is
unfaithful to him the world says, ‘Poor man’; when a man is in financial
embarrassment the world says, ‘Poor man’; when it pleased God in the form
of a lowly servant to suffer in this world the world says, ‘Poor man’; when
an Apostle with a divine commission has the honor to suffer for the truth
the world says, ‘Poor man.’ — Poor world!”
