QUOTATION: Christ's Words

Blessed John Henry NewmanLook at Christ's words, and this same character of them will strike you; whatever He says is fruitful in meaning, and refers to many things. It is well to keep this in mind when we read Scripture; for it may hinder us from self-conceit, from studying it in an arrogant critical temper, and from giving over reading it, as if we had got from it all that can be learned.

--Blessed John Henry Newman, "The Resurrection", Parochial and Plain Sermons, Volume 1
