The only safe ruler is he who has learned to obey willingly.
Of two evils, the less is always to be chosen.
Intelligence must follow faith, never precede it, and never destroy it.
It is much safer to obey than to rule.
At the Day of Judgment, we shall not be asked what we have read, but what we have done.
Bear the Cross cheerfully and it will bear you.
No man ruleth safely but he that is willingly ruled.
A man is hindered and distracted in proportion as he draws outward things to himself.
I would far rather feel remorse than know how to define it.
What most of all hinders heavenly consolation is that you are too slow in turning yourself to prayer.
Be assured that if you knew all, you would pardon all.
The loftier the building the deeper the foundation must be.
Who has a harder fight than he who is striving to overcome himself.
Of two evils we must always choose the least.

In the holy Scriptures, truth is to be looked for rather than fair phrases
Without the way , there is no going without the truth, there is no knowing without the life, there is no living.
In judging others a man laboreth in vain he often erreth, and easily falleth into sin but in judging and examining himself he always laboreth to good purpose
How quickly passes away the glory of this world
Oh, how swiftly the glory of the world passes away
Blessed are the ears that hear the pulse of the divine whisperer, and give no heed to the many whisperings of the world
How quickly passes away the glory of this world.
Never be entirely idle but either be reading, or writing, or praying or meditating or endeavoring something for the public good.
