A Quote by Thomas á Kempis on books, complaints, giving, god, heart, life, and meaning

A disciple once complained, "You tell us stories, but you never reveal their meaning to us." The master replied, "How would you like it if someone offered you fruit and then chewed it up for you before giving it to you?" If your heart is straight with God, then every creature will be to you a mirror of life and a book of holy doctrine.

Thomas a Kempis (1380 - 1471)
