A fervant religious man bears and takes all things well that are commanded him.
A negligent and lukewarm religious man has trouble upon trouble and on every side suffers anguish; because he has no comfort within and is hindered from seeking any without.
A religious man that lives not in discipline lies open to dreadful ruin.
~ Thomas `a Kempis
