“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!”
