Let the business of the world take care of itself … My business is to get the world saved; if this involves the standing still of the looms and the shutting up of the factories, and the staying of the sailing of the ships, let them all stand still. When we have got everybody converted they can go on again, and we shall be able to keep things going then by working half time and have the rest to spend in loving one another and worshipping God.

William Booth (1829–1912), British evangelist, founder of the Salvation Army
“The Risks,” The War Cry (20 Dec 1884)
