19:10 timestamp: Mark Twain Quote delivered?

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) "A lie can travel halfway round the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." - Attributed to Mark Twain, never verified as originating with Twain.

This quote may have originated from Charles Haddon Spurgeon who in turn attributed it to an old proverb in a sermon delivered one Sunday morning, April 1, 1855. Spurgeon was a celebrated English fundamentalist Baptist preacher. His words were:

    "A lie will go round the world while truth is pulling its boots on."

Charlie Spurgeon's wisdom, knowledge, discernment, and insight... carried his oratory acumen. His preaching was unsurpassed in power and eloquence. He spawned 3,600 sermons and about 50 books. Every single one reads like a masterpiece of literary and rhetorical genius.

He also had the work ethic of a sweatshop sowing machine, drilling away at projects with little respite... He started schools, orphanages, seminaries, and literally dozens of societies that proliferated his output for the British kingdom. He stood against the liberalism of his day in the infamous Downgrade Controversy because he valued doctrinal accuracy with unwavering courage.

[Irony. His words would be quoted @ 19:10 in a documentary explaining the very nature of things he railed against a century & a half ago.]
