More than a Quote:
 
Late one evening, DL Moody, the premier American evangelist of the 1800s, arrived home from speaking at a meeting.  Emma, his wife, was already asleep.  As her exhausted husband climbed into bed, she rolled over and murmured, “So how did it go tonight?”
“Pretty well,” he replied.  “Two and a half converts.”
His wife lay silently for a moment pondering this response, then finally smiled.  “That’s sweet,” she replied.  “How old was the child?”
“No, no, no,” Moody answered.  “It was two children and one adult!  The children have their whole lives in front of them. The adult’s life is already half-gone.”
(from Too Small to Ignore by Wess Stafford)
