I write all that the Lord gives me to write.—Letter 52, 1906, p. 9. (To Brother and Sister Farnsworth, January 29, 1906.)

Your work has been represented to me in figures. You were passing round to a company a vessel filled with most beautiful fruit. But as you offered them this fruit, you spoke words so harsh, and your attitude was so forbidding, that no one would accept it. Then Another came to the same company, and offered them the same fruit. And so courteous and pleasant were His words and manner as He spoke of the desirability of the fruit, that the vessel was emptied.—Letter 164, 1902, p. 1. (To A. T. Jones, September, 1902.)

In the night season I was in a council meeting where the brethren were discussing the matter of the Sanitarium in Los Angeles. One of the brethren presented the advantages of establishing the sanitarium in the city of Los Angeles. Then One of Authority arose and presented the matter with clearness and force.—Letter 40, 1902, p. 3. (To J. E. White, March 18, 1902.)
