Germania of Berlin

“But the light that always led him out of the deepest darkness to the day was his sympathy for his brethren, whose misery in the East End of London so deeply laid hold of him.”

Daily Look-round of Berlin

“Perhaps the most remarkable fact about him was that with all his gigantic plans he never lost himself in phantasy, but always knew how to keep himself down to the practical.”

Strassburg Post

“Hard upon himself, he exercised the same severity upon others, from the highest of his Officers to the least in his Army.”

Schwalish Mercury of Stuttgart

“He made his Army out of the soil of London’s misery-quarter, and its present is the work of his unwearyable devotion, the energy sustained by the fire of his zeal for his idea.”

Muhlhaus Daily

“His personality grew out of the old Puritan spirit.”

Elbing Latest News

“He is the model of a successful business man.  But he is a business man who never works for himself, only for others.  So wrote one of the man whom death has now taken from what was the creation of his life.  In him has passed away one of the characteristic figures of the century’s tendency.  His many-sidedness, it is not too much to say, had no equal.  Bringer of Salvation—­social politician—­wholesale business man—­are only three comparisons which cannot by far exhaust the description of the phenomenon Booth.  If ever the word can rightly be used of any one, then of William Booth it can be said he was a benefactor of mankind.”

Altona News

“Modern time has few men to show whose spirit had any such world-embracing might, and who, out of so unlikely a beginning, knew how to raise up so gigantic a work as compels us to be filled, if not with love to him, at least with the greatest respect for his honourable intentions.”

Vogtland Gazette Plauen

“These were the innermost feelings of his whole life which drove him to his marvellous life’s work—­religious zeal and sympathy.”

Frankfurt Gazette

“William Booth had a mighty will, and he strove on for tens of years from promise to fulfilment.”

Augsburg Evening Gazette

“His brilliant talent for organisation, and his ability always to strike the right note, which would take with the masses, were the most outstanding specialities of the deceased.”

Rhein-Westphalian Gazette
