Quotes by Jerome


If my father were weeping on his knees before me and my mother hanging on my neck behind me, and my brothers and sisters and kin howling on every side to retain me in some sinful course, I would fling my mother to the ground, I would run over my father, I would despise all my kin and I would tred them under my feet that I might run to Christ.


Teach in Thy church, not to get the applause of the people, but to set in motion the groan; the tears of the hearers are Thy praises.
