French Bishop, Preacher and Author of Fiction and Spirituality
The great imperfection of most of us proceeds from want of reflection,
but, on the other hand, there are many who think overmuch, who fall into
the mistake of too close self-inspection, and who are perpetually fretting
over their failings and weaknesses.
The only perfection I know of is a hearty love of god, and to love one’s neighbour as oneself. Charity is the only virtue which rightly unites us to God and man. Such union is our final aim and end, and all the rest is mere delusion.
