Adolf Koberle quote:

“The sanctification of conduct by the strengthening of the will; the sanctification of the emotions by a strenuous training of the soul; the sanctification of thought by a deepening of the understanding; moralism, mysticism, speculation, these are the three ladders on which men continually seek to climb up to God, with a persistent purpose that it seems nothing can check; a storming of Heaven that is just as pathetic in its unceasing efforts as in its final futility.” (p. 2, The Quest for Holiness)

Found on John Zahl’s weird and wacky blog.  More disco than theology but I still appreciate it.  Check it out here
