Quotables: Thomas Aquinas


"Some there are who presume so far on their wits that they think themselves capable of measuring the whole nature of things by their intellect, in that thy esteem all things true which they see, and false which they see not. Accordingly, in order that man's mind might be freed from this presumption, and seek the truth humbly, it was necessary that certain things far surpassing his intellect should be proposed to man by God."

- Thomas Aquinas
Summa Contra Gentiles (1264)
