The story is told of a young man who was preparing for a long trip. He told his friend, "I am just about packed. I only have to put in a guide book, mirror, a microscope, a lamp, a telescope, a volume of fine poetry, some letters, a few biographies, a book of songs, a sword, a hammer and a set of books I have been studying." "But you can’t get all that into your bag." said his friend. "Oh, yes I can," he replied. "It doesn’t take much room." With that, he placed his Bible in the corner of his suit case and closed the lid.
