E. L. Langston in one of his splendid books says: "There is a strange plant in Jamaica, called the 'life plant.' It is called this because it is almost impossible to kill or destroy any portion of it.
When a leaf is cut off & hung by a string, instead of shriveling up & dying like any other leaf, it sends gut white threadlike roots & thus gathers moisture from the air & begins to grow new leaves.
The Bible," says Mr. Langston, "is the Life Plant of the moral & spiritual world. Circulate the Bible or portions of it anywhere and it will soon take root in the affections & heart of mankind & send out tendrils of life.
In the heart of Africa, or among the aborigines of South America, or among the Eskimos of the Arctic Circle, it has the same quickening power which no climate or heathenism has the power to kill."
