Ira Sankey, long-time song leader for D. L. Moody, gave this account from his young adulthood: “When about twenty years of age I went to Farmington, Ohio, to attend a musical convention, conducted by Mr. Bradbury [William Bradbury; 1816-1868]. On my return home, my father said to mother: ‘I am afraid that boy will never amount to anything; all he does is to run about the country with a hymn-book under his arm.’ Mother replied that she would rather see me with a hymn-book under my arm than with a whisky bottle in my pocket.”

Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
