The First Epistle of John

The man who loves his fellows is never a spent force.... It is said of the Apostle John that in his last enfeebled days he was wont to have himself carried to church on a litter, that from it, as from the most revered of pulpits, he might whisperingly preach to the people. Such as John could never be a spent force.

James McKechnie, Meredith's Allegory, The Shaving of Shagpat, p. 242.
