Happy is that person whom Truth itself teaches, not by figures of speech and eloquent language, but as it is in itself.
When the eternal Word speaks we are set free from countless theories and conjectures. All things spring from this one Word and all things speak of one Word, and this Word is the beginning, which also speaks to us.
That person to whom all things are One and who draws all things to One and who sees all things in One may be steadfast in heart and rest peacefully in God.
Let all teachers hold their peace. Let all creation be silent in your sight. You alone speak to me.
- The Imitation of Christ 1:3
