[It Is Terribly Important To Realize That The Leap Of Faith Is Not So Much A Leap Of Thought As Of Action. For While In Many Matters It Is First We Must See Then We Will Act; In Matters Of Faith It Is First We Must Do Then We Will Know, First We Will Be And Then We Will See. One Must, In Short, Dare To Act Wholeheartedly Without Absolute Certainty.]

Quotes About Being At Peace With God

And when we are truly ourselves we lose most of the futile self-consciousness that keeps us constantly comparing ourselves with others in order to see how big we are." - Author: Thomas Merton
