Advent Reading: The Imitation of Christ #8

Go where you may, you will find no rest except in humble obedience to the rule of authority. Dreams of happiness expected from change and different places have deceived many.

Everyone, it is true, wishes to do as he pleases and is attracted to those who agree with him. But if God be among us, we must at times give up our opinions for the blessings of peace.

Thomas a Kempis, The Imitation of Christ, Book 1, Chapter 8
