CHRIST. But were you not afraid, good Sir, when you saw him come out with his club?
GREAT-HEART. It is my duty, said he, to distrust my own ability, that I may have reliance on Him that is stronger than all.
CHRIST. But what did you think when he fetched you down to the ground at the first blow?
GREAT-HEART. Why, I thought, quoth he, that so my Master Himself was served, and yet He it was that conquered at the last.This is an extract from the second part of Pilgrim's Progress, by John Bunyan (1684, public domain). CHRIST. is Christiana, the wife of Christian (the original pilgrim) and GREAT-HEART is escorting Christiana and her family on their pilgrimage.
