Thomas Aquinas Quote: “The world tempts us either by attaching us to it in prosperity, or by filling us with fear of adversity. But faith overcomes this in that we believe in a life to come better than this one, and hence we despise the riches of this world and we are not terrified in the face of adversity.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “It would seem that zeal is not an effect of love. For zeal is a beginning of contention.”

Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Law has the power to compel: indeed, the ability to enforce is a condition of the ability to command.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Justice is in subjects as well as in rulers.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Anger and the like are attributed to God on account of a similitude of effect. Thus, because to punish is properly the act of an angry man, God’s punishment is metaphorically spoken of as His anger.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “So, to detract from the perfection of creatures is to detract from the perfection of divine power.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “A thing is lovable according as it is good. But God is infinite good. Therefore He is infinitely lovable.”

Thomas Aquinas Quote: “It is unlawful to add anything to the words of Holy Scripture regarding the sense.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “The truth of our faith becomes a matter of ridicule among the infidels if any Catholic, not gifted with the necessary scientific learning, presents as dogma what scientific scrutiny shows to be false.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Sing, my tongue, the Saviour’s glory, Of His Flesh, the mystery sing; Of the Blood, all price exceeding, Shed by our Immortal King, Destined, for the world’s redemption, From a noble Womb to spring.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “The apostles and their successors are God’s vicars in governing the Church which is built on faith and the sacraments of faith. Wherefore, just as they may not institute another Church, so neither may they deliver another faith, nor institute other sacraments.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Affirmative precepts are distinguished from negative whenever one is not comprised in the other; thus, that of honoring parents does not comprise that of not killing, and vice versa.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Baptism is not to be conferred on a man who is unwilling to give up his other sins, so neither should Baptism be given to one who is unwilling to renounce his unbelief. Nevertheless, each of them receives the Sacrament if it is conferred on him, although not unto salvation.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Arrive at knowledge over small streamlets, and do not plunge immediately into the ocean, since progress must go from the easier to the more difficult.”

Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Again, it is self-evident that truth exists. For truth exists if anything at all is true, and if anyone denies that truth exists, he concedes that it is true that it does not exist, since if truth does not exist it is then true that it does not exist.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Gods are called many by the error of some who worshipped many deities, thinking as they did the planets and other stars were gods, and also the separate parts of the world.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “The proper task of the Savior is that he is a savior; indeed, for this he came into the world: to seek and save what was lost.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “As the saints will rejoice in all goods, so will the damned grieve for all goods.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “The person who truly understands love could love anyone.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Practical sciences proceed by building up; theoretical science by resolving into components.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “In deliberation we may hesitate; but a deliberated act must be performed swiftly.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “For in order that man may do well, whether in the works of the active life, or in those of the contemplative life, he needs the fellowship of friends.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “A man does not always choose what his guardian angel intends.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Many cry to the Lord that they may win riches, that they may avoid losses; they cry that their family may be established, they ask for temporal happiness, for worldly dignities; and, lastly, they cry for bodily health, which is the patrimony of the poor. For these and suchlike things many cry to the Lord; hardly one cries for the Lord Himself! How easy it is for a man to desire all manner of things from the Lord and yet not desire the Lord Himself! As though the gift could be sweeter than the Giver!”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “If our opponent believes nothing of divine revelation, there is no longer any means of proving the articles of faith by reasoning, but only of answering his objections – if he has any – against faith. Since faith rests upon infallible truth, and since the contrary of a truth can never be demonstrated, it is clear that the arguments brought against faith cannot be demonstrations, but are difficulties that can be answered.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “The minister to whom confession is made is the delegate of Christ, Who is the Judge of the living and the dead.”

Thomas Aquinas Quote: “The custom of the Church has very great authority and ought to be jealously observed in all things.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “The theologian considers sin mainly as an offence against God; the moral philosopher as contrary to reasonableness.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “It must be said that charity can, in no way, exist along with mortal sin.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “The Stone is one, the Medicine is one, to which we add nothing, only in the preparation removing superfluities.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Now it seems that everything in the world stems from sources other than God, since the products of nature have their source in nature; deliberate effects can be traced back to human reason or will as their source. There is no need then to assume that God exists.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Pipes are not to be used for teaching, nor any artificial instruments, as the harp, or the like: but whatsoever will make the hearers good men.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “See to whom Jesus is drawing near, three kinds of people: to those who make peace with him, to those who are devoted to God, and to those who are kind to their neighbors.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Faith presupposes natural knowledge, even as grace presupposes nature, and perfection supposes something that can be perfected.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “Angels need an assumed body, not for themselves, but on our account.”
Thomas Aquinas Quote: “A capacity as such is directed to an act. Wherefore we seek to know the nature of a capacity from the act to which it is directed, and consequently the nature of a capacity is diversified as the nature of the act is diversified.”
