Second Breakfast: XLIX


Give me, O Lord, heavenly wisdom, that I may learn to seek You above all things and to find You; to
relish You above all things and to love You; and to understand all other things, even as they are, according to the order of your wisdom. Grant me prudently to avoid the flatterer, and patiently to bear with him that opposeth me; for this is great wisdom, not to be carried by every wind of words, nor to give ear to the wicked flattering Siren; for thus do we go safely on in the way we have begun.

-Thomas a Kempis, The Imitation of Christ in Seeds: A Scattering of Groundbreaking Ideas
