Charles Haddon Spurgeon
It is said that if Noah's ark had had to be built by a company; they would not have laid the keel yet; and it may be so. What is many men's business is nobody's business. The greatest things are accomplished by individual men.
You cannot slander human nature; it is worse than words can paint it.
Friendship is one of the sweetest joys of life. Many might have failed beneath the bitterness of their trial had they not found a friend.
By perseverance the snail reached the ark.
It's not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.
The repetition of small efforts will accomplish more than the occasional use of great talents.
Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.
