" ACTUAL WORK EVEN IF INFINITESIMAL, IS BETTER THAN ETERNAL SCRIBBLING AND TALKING "
FIRE! FIRE!! FIRE!!!
" Train up a band of fiery young men. Put your fire in them and gradually increase the organization, letting it widen and widen its circle. Do the best you can, do NOT wait to cross the river when the water has all run down.....But actual work, my boys even if infinitesimal, is better than eternal scribbling and talking.
Do not be afraid of a small beginning, great things come afterwards. Be courageous. Do not try to lead your brethren, but serve them. The brutal mania for leading has sunk many a great ship in the waters of life. Take care especially of that, i.e. be UNSELFISH EVEN UNTO DEATH, and WORK.....MY BRAVE BOYS. At it, my boys! Glory unto the Lord! . . ."
