St. Teresa of Avila

"The child blames the external and focuses his energies there, the warrior conquers the realms within and becomes gifted."

- St. Teresa of Avila | THE SERVANT OF UNITY


Original context

Most men in power have not the strength nor wisdom
to be satisfied with the way things are.

The sane know contentment, for beauty is their lover,
and beauty is never absent from this world.

The farther away light is from one’s touch
the more one naturally speaks of the
need for change.

Yes, overthrow any government inside
that makes you weep.

The child blames the external and focuses his energies there;
the warrior conquers the realms within
and becomes
gifted.

Only the inspired should make decisions
that affect the lives of many,

never a man who has not held God in his arms
and become the servant of
unity.

- St. Teresa of Avila | THE SERVANT OF UNITY
