Thomas Kempis — My son, now will I teach thee…

My son, now will I teach thee the way of peace and inward liberty.  Be desirous to do the will of another rather than thine own.  Choose always to have less rather than more.  Seek always the lowest place, and to be inferior to everyone.  Wish always, and pray, that the will of God may be wholly fulfilled in thee.
Thomas Kempis
