Years ago, in England, Sir John Barbirolli was conducting a great symphony orchestra before a "standing room only" audience. The concert hall was unusual in that it was used for cultural events on weekdays and for religious services on Sundays.

On this particular Saturday evening, one of the patrons of the orchestra noticed that the clergyman who was to preach there the next day was sitting next to him in the audience. He leaned over and said to him, cynically, "When are you going to fill this hall on Sunday the way Sir John Barbirolli has tonight?"

The clergyman looked his antagonist straight in the eye and said with a steady voice, "I will fill this hall on Sunday morning when you give to me, as you gave to Sir John tonight, eighty-five disciplined men and women to be with him and to work with him."

While teaching one day, I could see one little girl was puzzled as to the meaning of the word jerk.

“Suppose you were driving with your Dad,” I said to her, “and he had to step on the brakes all of a sudden, and you went like this”...I pantomimed a rapid jerking movement forward and back.

Understanding dawned in her eyes, and she said, “Oh, yes, 'cause there's a jerk in front of us.”
