“Very soon your life here will end; consider, then, what may be in store for you elsewhere. Today we live; tomorrow we die and are quickly forgotten. Oh, the dullness and hardness of a heart which looks only to the present instead of preparing for that which is to come!” (Fr. Thomas à Kempis, The Imitation of Christ, Book 1, Chapter 23)

  1. Which translation or book version of the ‘Imitation of Christ’ was this from? I liked it better than the one I have. Thanks.
