“Only let us persevere in holy effort, and the end is sure.
“When a certain American general was fighting they said, ‘What are you doing ?’
“He said, ‘I am not doing much, but I keep pegging away.’
“That is what we must do. We cannot do much at any one time, but we must keep on. We must keep pegging away at the enemy, and something will come of it by-and-by.”
– Charles H. Spurgeon, from the sermon Cheer Up My Comrades !
