Author Quotes

Choose rather to want less, than to have more.

A humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.

A wise love regards not so much the gift of him who loves, as the love of him who gives. He esteems affection rather than valuables, and sets all gifts below the Beloved. A noble-minded lover rests not in the gift, but in Me above every gift.
