C.H. Spurgeon on the City

Alongside the George MacDonald quote, comes this one from C.H. Spurgeon:
The city is full of care, and he who has to go there from day to day finds it to be a place of great wear and tear. It is full of noise, and stir, and bustle, and sore travail; many are its temptations, losses, and worries. But to go there with the divine blessing takes off the edge of its difficulty; to remain there with that blessing is to find pleasure in its duties, and strength equal to its demands.
That one is for a good mate, Dan.

Spurgeon used to live just around the corner from where I live :)... feels strange to be close to history and greatness S xxx
