Quotable St. Thomas on His Feast Day

These three excellent quotes from St. Thomas address man's need for companionship with his fellow man and his God. I especially understand the quote about alleviating sorrow! I do regain my sense of joy when I remember to seek God in everyday things like sleep, wine and a good soak! -- Read on...

Three quotations from the Angelic Doctor:

"Friendship is the source of the greatest pleasures, and without friends even the most agreeable pursuits become tedious. "

"Man cannot live without joy; therefore when he is deprived of true spiritual joys it is necessary that he become addicted to carnal pleasures. "

"Sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath, and a glass of wine. "

HT: Peony & Micki, curatrix of the holy cards
