Extracts from the Imitation

  • It is not learning that makes a man holy and just, but a virtuous life makes him pleasing to God.

  • If you wish to learn and appreciate something worth while, then love to be unknown and considered as nothing.

  • He who (the word) becomes everything, who traces all things to it and who sees all things in it, may ease his heart and remain at peace with God.

  • The pure, simple and steadfast spirit is not distracted by many labour, for he does them all for the honor of God.
