German. (c.1260 - c.1328). Christian mystic.
"When I preach, I usually speak of detachment and say that a man should be empty of self and all things; and secondly, that he should be reconstructed in the simple good that God is; and thirdly, that he should consider the great aristocracy which God has set up in the soul, such that by means of it man may wonderfully attain to God; and fourthly, of the purity of the divine nature."
"A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don't know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox's or bear's, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there."
"He who would be serene and pure needs but one thing, detachment."
"If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice."
"One person who has mastered life is better than a thousand persons who have mastered only the contents of books, but no one can get anything out of life without God."
"Only the hand that erases can write the true thing."
"The knower and the known are one. Simple people imagine that they should see God as if he stood there and they here. This is not so. God and I, we are one in knowledge."
"The outward man is the swinging door; the inner man is the still hinge."
"What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action."
