St Teresa of Avilla

Saint Teresa of Avila (1515-1582 CE)

“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 St. Teresa of Avila’s Interior Castle, translated by E. Allison Peers.
