Vile Dung

by Jonathan Bailey

“He is truly great who has great charity. And he is great who is little in his own sight and who sets at naught* all worldly honor. And he is very wise who accounts all worldly pleasures as vile dung, so that he may win Christ. And he is very well taught who forsakes his own will and follows the will of God.”

Thomas A Kempis

The Imitation of Christ

Pg. 36
