Principles and Practices - December 14


'You aspire,' says St. Austin, 'to great things, begin with little ones; you desire to erect a very high building, think first of the foundation of humility. The foundations are always sunk proportionably to the intended weight of the building, and the higher one intends it, the deeper must the foundations be laid.'
