The Better Part is but a Part

That One Thing which is needful for all [cf. Lk 11:42] is Divine Love. The better part is an inward life, with loving adherence to God… But there are some foolish people who would be so inward that they would neither do anything nor serve anyone, even in the things of which their neighbour has need. Behold, these are neither hidden friends nor faithful servants of God.
Blessed Jan van Ruusbroec (1293–1381)
