If thou desire the love of God and man, be humble, for the proud heart, as it loves none but itself, is beloved of none but itself. Humility enforces where neither virtue, nor strength, nor reason can prevail.
More Francis Quarles quotes :
Let the fear of danger be a spur to prevent it; he that fears not, gives advantage to the danger.Francis Quarles
Beware of him that is slow to anger; for when it is long coming, it is the stronger when it comes, and the longer kept. Abused patience turns to fury.Francis Quarles
