Food in hunger

"There is as much in our Lord's pantry as will satisfy all his bairns [children], and as much wine in his cellar as will quench all their thirst. Hunger on, for there is food in hunger for Christ. Go never from him, but fash [annoy] him (who is yet pleased with the importunity of hungry souls) with a dishful of hungry desires, 'til he fill you."

Samuel Rutherford, The Loveliness of Christ, pages 19-20.
