Two Maxims from the Writings


Two Maxims from the Writings of the Blessed Henry Suso

"God wishes not to deprive us of pleasure; but He wishes to give us pleasure in its totality--that is, all pleasure."

"Wilt thou be of use to all creatures? Then turn thyself away from all creatures."

Todo y nada, the via negativa--find God where He is, not where you would like Him to be.
