Renaissance/Reformation quotations

Here are some more quotes I've found for this time period....I actually don't know when Thomas a Kempis lived, LOL, but he was in the christian history book and they had a couple of quotes that I just loved so I wrote them down....so now I won't forget them, lol.

“The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.” - Leonardo Da Vinci



“The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.” - Leonardo Da Vinci



“Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.: - Leonardo Da Vinci


In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.

— Galileo Galilei


I've loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night. — Galileo Galilei


Jesus has many who love his kingdom in heaven, but few who bear his cross.

- Thomas a Kempis


They who love Jesus for his own sake, and not for the sake of comfort for themselves, bless him in every trial and anguish of the heart, no less than in the greatest joy.  And were he never willing to bestow comfort on them, they would still always praise him and give him thanks. - Thomas a Kempis




“...I stand convicted by the Scriptures to which I have appealed, and my conscience is taken captive by God’s Word, and I cannot and will not recant anything.  For to act against conscience is neither safe for us nor open to us.  

        On this I take my stand.  I can do no other.  God help me. Amen.”

– Martin Luther
