Victory and defeat

"Victory has a hundred fathers and defeat is an orphan." -- Italian diplomat Count Galeazzo Ciano (1903-1944) [Sometimes seen as "Success has many fathers, but failure is an orphan."]

"A preacher ain't nothin' but a man." -- Elder Duncan McCranie

One of my favorite quotes on preaching goes something like this:

"The Preacher should preach as never sure to preach again, and as a dying man to dying men."

Yes, a good quote from Puritan Richard Baxter.

Preaching in simplicity is understood by all. Elitist preaching may be understood by none.
