Excerpt from Fools for Christ: Comprising Story of the Mule; The Ass, Not the White Horse of Revelation, the Proper Symbol of the Christian Ministry; A Discussion Between Horse, Ass, and Mule
Two weeks pass, Sunday-school met at nine O'clock. At the close of the lessons a preacher arose and said: Dear children, of the church and sunday-school, Uncle Philip told you a beautiful story about the horse, now Uncle Phelps wishes to tell you a story about the mule. But before we will tell you the story we want to talk to you, a little about ambition. You have heard the Old adage, Money makes the mare go.' vye in quire what makes the horse go. We answer, ambition makes the horse go, and it makes the mule go too, and we are inclined to the Opinion that it makes the mare go, the Old adage to the contrary notwithstanding. Be this as it may, one thing is certain, horse, mare, mule, man, woman, boy nor girl, is much account without a good de gree of ambition.
