image From British pastor Charles Haddon Spurgeon’s (1834-1892) book, Lectures to My Students:

Above all things beware of letting your tongue outrun your brains. Guard against a feeble fluency, a garrulous prosiness, a facility of saying nothing…My brethren, it is a hideous gift to possess, to be able to say nothing at extreme length.

You should forward this to pastors (and politicians) that you know.
