Inaugural Sermons

Today, each one is asked to choose their favorite quotation from Thomas' Inaugural Sermons (1256)

'Heaven and earth will pass away by my words shall not pass away' Luke 21:33

"Therefore humility is required of them with respect to the learning that comes from listening."

"One skilled in speech should so speak as to teach, to delight and to change; that is, to teach the ignorant, to delight the bored and to change the lazy." Augustine, On Christian Doctrine 4:12

"But John, who soars to the heights of his divinity, is depicted as an eagle."
