The Imitation of Christ
Filed under: Quotable, Lent Quotes — Jill W.

Arise, begin this very moment and say, “Now is the time to do: now is the time to fight, now is the proper time for amendment.”

When thou art ill at ease and troubled, then is the time when thou art nearest unto blessing.

Thou must go through fire and water that God may bring thee into a wealthy place.

— The Imitation of Christ, attributed to Thomas a Kempis
