'They are the flower of the Church's growth; the grace of the spirit finds in them its beauty and delicacy; they are our pride and bloom; in them praise and honor have their perfect and incorrupt work; they are God's image reflecting the Lord's sanctity; the more illustrious portion of Christ's flock. In them exults, in them beauteously flowers the glorious fecundity of our mother the Church, and the more virginity adds to its number the more that mother's joy increases.'

'Do you desire to study to your advantage? Let devotion accompany all your studies and study less to make yourself learned than to become a saint.'

'Whence let no friar, wherever he be and whithersoever he go, in any manner pick up or receive or cause to be received money or coins, neither for the opportunity of clothing nor of books nor as the price of any work, indeed for no opportunity, except on account of the manifest necessity of the sick friars, because we ought not have or repute more utility in regard to money and coins than in stones. And the devil wants to make those blind, who grasp for it or repute it better than stones. Let us therefore beware, we who have left everything (cf. Mt 19:27), lest for such a limited thing we lose the Kingdom of Heaven.

And if in any place we would find coins, let us not care for them, like (we do) for the dust, which we tread upon with (our) feet, because (they are) "vanity of vanities and all vanity" (Eccl 1:2). And if perchance it has happened - and let it not - that any friar has collected or had money or coins, excepting only the aforesaid necessity of the infirm, let all of us friars hold him as a false brother and an apostate and a thief and a brigand and as one having a purse (cf. Jn 12:6), unless he has truly repented. And let the friars in no manner receive nor cause to be received, nor seek nor cause to be sought, money for alms nor coins on behalf of any house or place; and let them not go about with a person seeking money or coins on behalf of such places; on the other hand, the other services, which are not contrary to our life, the friars of the place can do with the blessing of God. Nevertheless the friars, in (times of) the manifest necessity of the lepers, can seek alms on their behalf. However let them beware much of money. Similarly let all the friars beware, so that they do not go around lands for any filthy lucre.'

'We make no progress because we dwell in that exterior learning which puffs up the mind; but these illiterate Egyptians have a true sense of their own weakness, blindness, and insufficiency; and by that very thing they are qualified to labor successfully in the pursuit of virtue.'

'You must flee from sensual things. Truly every time a man comes close to a struggle with sensuality, he is like a man standing at the edge of a deep lake, and the Enemy throws him in whenever he likes. But if the man lives far from sensual things, he is like one who stands at a distance from the lake, so that even if the Enemy entices him in order to throw him to the bottom, God sends him help at the very moment that the Enemy is drawing him away and doing him violence.'

'"Now Susannah was a very delicate woman." This does not mean that she had flashy adornments on herself or eyes painted with various colors — as Jezebel had. Rather, it means she had the adornment of faith, chastity, and sanctity.'

'He is ungrateful beyond all expression, and in heart altogether wrong, who, in the face of God's benefits which cost Him so much does not offer himself, and does not see the obligation he is under to devote himself entirely to the honor and glory of our Lord and Saviour.'
