“Study men.”
Patrick Henry-
Biographies. From John G. Paton's Missionary Patriarch, to tales of Livingstone, Knox, or Calvin. The scriptures tell us to seek out wise men and learn from them. While many great men have lived and died, their wisdom, their stories, their lives are still with us, and can teach us many things. The life of Richard the Lion heart can teach us to guard against pride, the lives of the martyrs can encourage us to stand fast, and the life of Earnest Shackleton can give us a passion for exploration, so yes, "Study Men", however, recall with Job's friend that "Great men are not always wise." (Job 32:9)

Through His Strength We Will Conquer,
Andrew C. Abbott
