John Wesley

John Wesley traveled 250,000 miles on horseback, riding twenty miles daily for forty years, preached forty thousand sermons, produced four hundred books, knew ten languages, and at eighty-three was annoyed when he could not write more than fifteen hours a day without huring his eyes. At eighty-six he was ashamed that he could not preach more than twice a day. He complained, in his diary, that there was an increasing tendency to lie in bed until 5:30 in the morning.
