Your weekly dose of Spurgeon
The PyroManiacs devote some space each weekend to highlights from the lifetime of works from the Prince of Preachers, Charles Haddon Spurgeon.  The following excerpt is from The Salt Cellars, volume two, page 191, Pilgrim Publications.
"Tarry, tarry, tarry, tarry.
Think again before you marry."

One might push this tarrying too far, but we seldom meet with such a case. They rush at matrimony like a dog at a piece of meat.

A quaint writer says, "I have seen women so delicate they were afraid to ride, for fear of the horse running away; afraid to sail, for fear the boat might be upset; afraid to walk, for fear they might fall; but I never saw one afraid to be married, which is far more riskful than all the others put together."
