Learning from Spurgeon
Nobody loves a good quote like I do. I have heard people refer to Charles Spurgeon as being their 'dead mentor'. Let's learn from his wisdom:
"A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble."
"Beware of no man more than of yourself; we carry our worst enemies within us."
"By perseverance the snail reached the ark."
"It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness."
"The greatest enemy to human souls is the self-righteous spirit which makes men look to themselves for salvation."
"We have come to a turning point in the road. If we turn to the right mayhap our children and our children's children will go that way; but if we turn to the left, generations yet unborn will curse our names for having been unfaithful to God and to His Word. "
"Of two evils, choose neither. "
