On Truth

image“About Truth”

“No pleasure is comparable to the standing upon the vantage-ground of truth.”

~ Francis Bacon (1561-1626) English author, philosopher & statesman

“Those to whom the Eternal Word [logos or Jesus] speaks are delivered from uncertainty. From one Word proceeds all things, and all things tell of Him. It is He [Jesus], the Author of all things, who speaks to us. Without Him no one can understand or judge aright. But the [wo]man … who refers everything to One and who sees everything as in One, is enabled to remain steadfast in heart and abide at peace with God.”

~ Thomas à Kempis  (1380–1471) German monk (“The Inner Life” pp.  4; aka Thomas van Kempen or Thomas Hemerken or Haemerken, litt. “small hammer” is the most probable author of “The Imitation of Christ” …one of the best known Christian books on devotion.)
