The story is told of Gaspard de Coligny, Admiral of France, who during the sixteenth-century religious persecutions was urged by his wife to declare publicly his conversion to Protestantism. "It is wise," he's reported as saying, "to count the cost of becoming a true Christian."

"It is wiser," his wife answered, "to count the cost of not becoming a true Christian." Quoted in Mary Baker Eddy, Miscellaneous Writings, p. 281.
