The humble listen to their brothers and sisters because they assume they have something to learn. They are open to correction, and they become wiser through it.

— Thomas Dubay

The most vibrant Thomas Dubay quotes that are little-known but priceless

The acute experience of great beauty readily evokes a nameless yearning for something more than earth can offer. Elegant splendor reawakens our spirit's aching need for the infinite, a hunger for more than matter can provide.


Beauty is necessarily shrouded in mystery--which is part of its splendour.


The main problem in developing a deep prayer life is by far the failure to live the radicality of the Gospel, hour by hour and day by day.


Creation is a book proclaiming the Creator.

It is a book of beauty that our intellect reads, but through the passageways of our five senses.


It is the saints who know what being in love is all about. Earthly love pales by comparison.


Boredom comes not from reality but from people who are only half alive.


The humble person is open to being corrected, whereas the arrogant is clearly closed to it. Proud people are supremely confident in their own opinions and insights. No one can admonish them successfully: not a peer, not a local superior, not even the pope himself. They know - and that is the end of the matter. Filled as they are with their own views, the arrogant lack the capacity to see another view.
