St. Dominic• After selling his possessions, including his manuscripts written on parchment, to raise money for the poor: “I could not bear to prize dead skins, when living skins were starving and in need.”

• “Arm yourself with prayer rather than a sword; wear humility rather than fine clothes.”

• “We must sow the seed, not hoard it.”

• “These, my much loved ones, are the bequests which I leave to you as my sons; have charity among yourselves; hold fast to humility; keep a willing poverty.”
