“If you wish to profit by the reading of Scripture, then do so with humility, simplicity and faith and never try to acquire a reputation for being a scholar. Inquire, and then listen meekly to what Scripture tells you. Do not be critical of the sayings of the ancient fathers, for they were not written without reason.”
-Thomas A Kempis, Imitation of Christ (Bk.1, Chpt. 5, p. 2)
