Spurgeon on Smoking

Category: Miscellaneous :: Permalink

Here is an interesting collection of anecdotes about Charles Spurgeon’s love of a good cigar. It doesn’t include the one that John Piper recounts in anĀ article on the value of reading biographies:

Spurgeon said to a Methodist critic, “If I ever find myself smoking to excess, I promise I shall quit entirely.””What would you call smoking to excess?” the man asked.

“Why, smoking two cigars at the same time!” was the answer.
