Napoleon said that in every battle there [is] a period of ten or fifteen minutes which decides the issue of the conflict. Certainly in the battle of life there are moments and hours which, so far as we can tell, determine our history: hours when the spirit in which we lived, the step we took, the word we uttered, or what at that moment we thought, resolved, accepted, rejected, did, or did not, gave a complexion to our whole being here, and it may be, hereafter. These are tenth hours, when a whole life seems packed into a single hour of revelation and destiny.

Clarence Edward Macartney, Sermons From Life, (Nashville, Cokesbury Press, 1933), 159. From a sermon by Russell Brownworth "Part One - Tenth Hours" 1/19/2009)
