Alexander Whyte quote

Alexander Whyte was a later 19th C. Scottish Pastor of St. George's Presbyterian Church in Edinburgh.  After is death in 1921, his son-in-law wrote a biography of him that Eugene Peterson would later say was one of the great pastor biographies.  This biography included Whyte response to a question of a young pastor starting out.

Whyte said, "Relieve yourself as often as possible, and take a long vacation."
