The Ant

The ant does not make new paths, but all follow the same way, and, when the time comes, become capable of flight… So too is it with those who live amidst the stirrings of love. They will never make fresh paths or seek unusual ways of acting, but in spite of every tempest they will follow the way of love to the place to which love leads them. And then, in due time, by persevering in all the virtues, they will be able to see God and to be carried up within his mystery.
Blessed Jan van Ruusbroec (1293–1381)
