There is only one problem on which all of my existence, my peace, and my happiness depend: to discover myself in discovering God. If I find Him I will find myself and if I find my true self I will find Him.
– Thomas Merton
There is no deep knowing of God without a deep knowing of self and no deep knowing of self without a deep knowing of God.
– John Calvin
A humble self-knowledge is a surer way to God than a search after deep knowledge.
– Thomas a Kempis
Grant, Lord, that I may know myself that I may know thee.
