Articles and one of my favorite dead people!

Here are two articles from the Harris brothers, both are very encouraging and very challenging!


This is about the book.

Alright, one of the application points was to make friends with dead people...which means read books by dead authors. One of my favorite dead people is Charles H. Spurgeon. Spurgeon is probably one of the greatest preachers in history and just reading through his sermons is quite the experience. So here are some of my favorite quotes from him:

Beware of no man more than of yourself; we carry our worst enemies within us. Charles Spurgeon

By perseverance the snail reached the ark. Charles Spurgeon

I do not think I should care to go on worshipping a Madonna even if she did wink. One cannot make much out of a wink. We want something more than that from the object of our adoration. Charles Spurgeon

Many men owe the grandeur of their lives to their tremendous difficulties. Charles Spurgeon

No one knows who is listening, say nothing you would not wish put in the newspapers. Charles Spurgeon

Trials teach us what we are; they dig up the soil, and let us see what we are made of. Charles Spurgeon

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. Charles Spurgeon

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. Charles Spurgeon

You might not always get what you want, but you always get what you expect. Charles Spurgeon

Chelsey, those were GREAT quotes. Charles Spurgeon has a lot of wisdom that we can learn for ourselves.
