“We use to count him a friend that will forewarn his neighbor of the danger when he knoweth thereof, especially when we think that our neighbor may be either ignorant or careless of his way. Why, I beseech thee put a little stop to thy earnest race, and take a view of what entertainment thou art likely to have, if thou do indeed and in truth persist in this thy course. Thy way leads down to death, and thy steps take hold on hell. It may be the path indeed is pleasant to the flesh, but the end thereof will be bitter to thy soul.” – John Bunyan
