Spurgeon: Courting controversy is wrong but so are soft words and trimmed sentences.

We do not pretend to be unsectarian, if by this is meant the absence of all distinctive principles, and a desire to please parties of all shades of opinion. We believe and therefore speak. We speak in love, but not in soft words and trimming sentences. We shall not court controversy, but we shall not shun it when the cause of God demands it…

Charles Spurgeon, quoted from Spurgeon: A New Biography by Arnold Dallimore, p. 113
