Adversity, Thomas More

Comments Off on We May Not Go to Heaven in Featherbeds

We may not look at our pleasures to go to heaven in featherbeds; it is not the way, for our Lord Himself went thither with great pain, and by many tribulations, which was the path wherein He walked thither, and the servant may not look to be in better case than his Master.

Thomas More
Quoted by William Roper in The Mirrour of Vertue in Worldly Greatness; or, The life of Sir Thomas More, page 26
