Charles George Gordon Quote
I am a chisel which cuts the wood; the Carpenter directs it. If I lose my edge, He must sharpen me; if he puts me aside and takes another, it is His own good will. None are indispensable to Him. He will do his work with a straw equally as well.
Colonel Gordon in Central Africa, 1874-1879 (T. De La Rue, 1885), p. 175
