Dum Spiro Spero
Until the gate of hell is shut upon a man, we must not cease to pray for him. And if we see him hugging the very doorposts of damnation, we must go to the mercy seat and beseech the arms of grace to pluck him from his dangerous position. While there is life, there is hope, and although the soul is almost smothered with despair, we must not despair for it, but rather arouse ourselves to awaken the Almighty arm.
- From a sermon on Mary Magdalene by Charles Spurgeon
