A Quote by Norman Macleod on beginning, christ, death, destruction, earth, life, losing, and meetings

We picture death as coming to destroy; let us rather picture Christ as coming to save. We think of death as ending; let us rather think of life as beginning and that more abundantly. We think of losing; let us think of gaining. We think of parting, let us think of meeting. We think of going away; let us think of arriving. And as the voice of death whispers "You must go from earth," let us hear the voice of Christ saying, "You are but coming to me!"

Norman Macleod (1812 - 1872)

A Quote by Mrs. Delany on books, confusion, desires, honor, meetings, plants, questions, and work

Mrs. Delany describes her first meeting with the Queen thus: The King desired me to show the Queen one of my books of plants. She seated herself in the gallery; a table and the book laid before her. I kept my distance till she called me to ask some questions about the mosaic paper work, and as I stood before Her Majesty the King set a chair behind me. I turned with some confusion and hesitation on receiving so great an honour, when the Queen said- 'Mrs. Delany, sit down, sit down; it is not every lady that has a chair brought her by a King.' So I obeyed.

A Quote by John L. Casteel on encouragement, genius, leadership, life, meetings, men, men and women, prayer, and women

The genius of the Methodist movement, which enabled it to conquer the raw lives of workingmen in industrial England, and the raw lives of men and women on the American frontier, was the "class meeting" - ten members and their leader, meeting regularly for mutual encouragement, rebuke, nurture, and prayer.
