Thomas à Kempis quotes (11)

Without the Way there is no going; Without the Truth there is no knowing; Without the Life there is no living.
Thomas à Kempis   Category: Genius

Count not thyself to have found true peace if thou hast felt no grief; nor that then all is well if thou hast no adversary; nor that this is perfect if all things fall out according to thy desire.
Thomas à Kempis   Category: Desire

Verily when the day of judgment comes we shall not be asked what we have read but what we have done.
Thomas à Kempis   Category: Judgment

Occasions do not make a man either strong or weak; they show what he is.
Thomas à Kempis   Category: Character

Great tranquility of heart is his who cares for neither praise nor blame.
Thomas à Kempis   Category: Blame

In judging of others a man laboreth in vain often erreth And easily sinneth; but in judging and examining himself he always laboreth fruitfully.
Thomas à Kempis   Category: Judge

Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.
Thomas à Kempis   Category: Anger

The loftier the building the deeper must the foundation be laid.
Thomas à Kempis   Category: Brotherhood

You are a man not God; you are human not an angel. How can you expect to remain always in a constant state of virtue when this was not possible even for an angel of heaven nor for the first man in the Garden?
Thomas à Kempis   Category: God

It is much safer to obey than to govern.
Thomas à Kempis   Category: Leadership

Who is so wise as to have a perfect knowledge of all things? Therefore trust not too much to thine own opinion but be ready also to hear the opinion of others. Thought thine own opinion be good yet if for the love of God thou foregoest it and followest that of another thou shalt the more profit thereby.
