St. Thomas Aquinas Quotes and Sayings



Better to illuminate than merely to shine, to deliver to others contemplated truths than merely to contemplate. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

All the efforts of the human mind cannot exhaust the essence of a single fly. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Man cannot live without joy; therefore when he is deprived of true spiritual joys it is necessary that he become addicted to carnal pleasures. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

There is but one Church in which men find salvation, just as outside the ark of Noah it was not possible for anyone to be saved. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath and a glass of wine. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

It is clear that he does not pray, who, far from uplifting himself to God, requires that God shall lower Himself to him, and who resorts to prayer not to stir the man in us to will what God wills, but only to persuade God to will what the man in us wills. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

The things that we love tell us what we are. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Beware of the person of one book. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Most men seem to live according to sense rather than reason. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

If the highest aim of a captain were to preserve his ship, he would keep it in port forever. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

That the saints may enjoy their beatitude and the grace of God more abundantly they are permitted to see the punishment of the damned in hell. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

How can we live in harmony? First we need to know we are all madly in love with the same God. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

To bear with patience wrongs done to oneself is a mark of perfection, but to bear with patience wrongs done to someone else is a mark of imperfection and even of actual sin. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Love takes up where knowledge leaves off. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

If, then, you are looking for the way by which you should go, take Christ, because He Himself is the way. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Well-ordered self-love is right and natural. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

To convert somebody go and take them by the hand and guide them. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

The highest manifestation of life consists in this: that a being governs its own actions. A thing which is always subject to the direction of another is somewhat of a dead thing. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Friendship is the source of the greatest pleasures, and without friends even the most agreeable pursuits become tedious. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Every judgement of conscience, be it right or wrong, be it about things evil in themselves or morally indifferent, is obligatory, in such wise that he who acts against his conscience always sins. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Faith has to do with things that are not seen and hope with things that are not at hand. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Love must precede hatred, and nothing is hated save through being contrary to a suitable thing which is loved. And hence it is that every hatred is caused by love. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Perfection of moral virtue does not wholly take away the passions, but regulates them. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

We can't have full knowledge all at once. We must start by believing; then afterwards we may be led on to master the evidence for ourselves. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Reason in man is rather like God in the world. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Three conditions are necessary for Penance: contrition, which is sorrow for sin, together with a purpose of amendment; confession of sins without any omission; and satisfaction by means of good works. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

The truth of our faith becomes a matter of ridicule among the infidels if any Catholic, not gifted with the necessary scientific learning, presents as dogma what scientific scrutiny shows to be false. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Three things are necessary for the salvation of man: to know what he ought to believe; to know what he ought to desire; and to know what he ought to do. ~St. Thomas Aquinas

Wonder is the desire for knowledge. ~St. Thomas Aquinas
