"Unless we have the spirit of the prophets resting upon us, the 
mantle which we wear is nothing but a rough garment to deceive. 
We ought to be driven forth with abhorrence from the society of 
honest men for daring to speak in the name of the Lord if the 
Spirit of God rests not upon us."
-C. H. Spurgeon

"Apostolic preaching is not marked by its beautiful diction, or 
literary polish, or cleverness of expression, but operates "in 
demonstration of the Spirit and of power."
-Arthur Wallis

[Speaking of the Holy Spirit coming upon him]:  "I went to 
preaching again. The sermons were not different; I did not 
present any new truths, and yet hundreds were converted. I 
would not now be placed back where I was before that blessed 
experience if you should give me all the world - it would be as 
dust in the balance."
-D.L. Moody

"Preach not calmly and quietly as though you were asleep, but 
preach with fire and pathos and passion."
-C. H. Spurgeon

"It was strictly forbidden to preach to other prisoners, as it is in 
captive nations today. It was understood that whoever was caught 
doing this received a severe beating. A number of us decided to 
pay the price for the priviledge of preaching, so we accepted their 
terms. It was a deal: we preached and they beat us. We were 
happy preaching; they were happy beating us - so everyone was happy."
-Richard Wurmbrand
