Teresa on Intelligence

Feast of St. Teresa of Avila
"An intelligent mind is simple and submissive; it sees its faults and allows itself to be guided. A mind that is deficient and narrow never sees its faults, even when shown them. It is always pleased with itself and never learns to do right."
- St. Teresa of Avila
