Some rather great quotes by Thomas a Kempis...
"No man doth safely rule, but he that hath learned gladly to obey."
"Nothing is sweeter than love, nothing stronger or higher or wider, nothing is more pleasant, nothing fuller, and nothing better in heaven or on earth, for love is born of God and cannot rest except in God."
"Remain tranquil and prepare to bear still greater trials. All is not lost even though you be troubled oftener or tempted more grievously. You are a man, not God. You are flesh, not an angel. How can you possibly expect to remain always in the same state of virtue when the angels in heaven and the first man in paradise failed to do so? I am He who rescues the afflicted and brings to My divinity those who know their own weakness."
"The more humble and obedient to God a man is, the more wise and at peace he will be in all that he does."
"The more the flesh is wasted by affliction, so much more is the Spirit strengthened by inward grace."
"Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be."
"I have often heard, that it is safer to hear and to take counsel, than to give it."
"If God were our one and only desire we would not be so easily upset when our opinions do not find outside acceptance."
