Thomas Aquinas

It is necessary to posit something which is necessary of itself, and has no cause of its necessity outside of itself but is the cause of necessity in other things. And all people call this thing God.More Thomas Aquinas quotes [11/12/2011 07:11:15]
What can be accomplished by a few principles is not effected by many. But it seems that everything we see in the world can be accounted for by other principles, supposing God did not exist. For all natural things can be reduced to one principle, which is nature, and all voluntary things can be reduced to one principle, which is human reason, or will. Therefore there is no need to suppose God's existence.More Thomas Aquinas quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Because we cannot know what God is, but only what He is not, we cannot consider how He is but only how He is not. More Thomas Aquinas quotes [11/12/2011 07:11:29]
It is clear that he does not pray, who, far from uplifting himself to God, requires that God shall lower Himself to him, and who resorts to prayer not to stir the man in us to will what God wills, but only to persuade God to will what the man in us wills.More Thomas Aquinas quotes [11/12/2011 07:11:09]
Love is a binding force, by which another is joined to me and cherished by myself.More Thomas Aquinas quotes [11/12/2011 07:11:46]
