Withdraw Thy Heart From The Love Of Visible Things -Thomas a Kempis

Call often to mind that proverb, 'That the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.' (Ecclesiastes 1:8). Endeavor therefore to withdraw thy heart from the love of visible things, and to turn thyself to the invisible. For they that follow their sensuality, do stain their own consciences, and lose the favour of God.

Taken from the book The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis 1380-1471
