Spurgeon's Encouragement to Church Planters

Several students at different periods in the history of the College [Spurgeon’s Preachers’ College], on being sent out as pioneers to start new churches, received this singular charge: ‘Cling tightly with both your hands; when they fail catch hold with your teeth; and if they give way, hang on with your eyelashes!’

--From C. H. Spurgeon Autobiography, Volume 2: The Full Harvest (p. 114).
