image When asked what God had taught him most deeply about life, George Mueller (1805-1898), pastor and philanthropist, explained:

There was a day when I died, utterly died, died to George Mueller, his opinions, preferences, tastes and will, died to the world, its approval or censure, died to the approval or blame even of my brethren and friends, and since then I have studied only to show myself approved unto God.

Quoted in A. T. Pierson, George Mueller of Bristol: His Life of Prayer and Faith, (pg. 367)
