Much Easier

From the pen of J. C. Philpot, to his friend Mr. Godwin, April 4, 1848:

But I can assure you, my dear friend, that I find it a much easier thing to get guilt on my conscience than get it off again; and more easy to talk about and lament one’s darkness and deadness that get life and light into the soul.

Letters and Memoir of Joseph Charles Philpot, first published in 1871, reprinted by Baker Book House, 1981, p. 207.
