St Teresa of Avilla

Saint Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)

“Self-knowledge is so important that, even if you were raised right up to the heavens, I should like you never to relax your cultivation of it: so long as we are on this earth, nothing matters more to us than humility.”

  • From Interior Castle (First Mansions, chapter I) by St. Teresa of Avila, translated by E. Allison Peers (Dover Publications, 2007).
