Favorite Preaching Quotes?

I am working on a project…can you share with me one or two of your favorite preaching quotes?  One of mine is by Billy Graham:  The test of a preacher is that his congregation goes away saying, not “What a lovely sermon!” but “I will do something.”

What one would you add?

Here's one of my favorites.

“The preacher takes the words provided by culture and tradition, selects from among them those that have the qualities of clarity, vitality, and appropriateness, arranges them so as to convey the truth and evoke interest, pronounces them according to the best accepted usage, and offers them to God in the sermon. It is God who fashions words into the Word."

- Fred Craddock
