Posts Tagged ‘On Reason’

Reason and learning are like body and soul.  Without the body, the soul is nothing but empty wind.  Without the soul, the body is but a senseless frame.

When Reason speaks to you, harken what she says, and you shall be saved.  Make good use of her utterances, and you shall be as one armed.
For the Lord has given you no better guide than Reason, no stronger arm than Reason.
When Reason speaks to your inmost self, you are proof against Desire.
For Reason is a prudent minister, a loyal guide, and a wise counsellor.  Reason is light in darkness, as anger is darkness amidst light.
Be wise — let Reason, not Impulse, be your guide.
Yet be mindful that even if Reason be at your side, she is helpless without the aid of Knowledge.
Without her blood-sister, Knowledge, Reason is like houseless poverty, and Knowledge without Reason is like a house unguarded.  And even Love, Justice, and Goodness avail little if Reason be not there too.

Know your own true worth, and you shall not perish.  Reason is your light and your beacon of Truth.  Reason is the source of Life.
God has given you Knowledge, so that by its light you may not only worship Him, but also see yourself in your weakness and strength.
Each day look into your conscience and amend your faults, if you fail in this duty you will be untrue to the knowledge and Reason that are within you.
Keep a watchful eye over yourself as if you were your own enemy; for you cannot learn to govern yourself, unless you first learn to govern your own passions and obey the dictates of your conscience.
