  1. This is a very profound, useful and well—rounded thought; I repeat
    it to myself often.

    (Also,
    there is the view that S. Thomas was a Monophysite, like most of us, most of
    the time, are, I mean the believers from the Apostolic Churches.

    This quote
    suggests he was even against the Monothelite tendencies or leanings of our
    understanding corrupted by sentimental imagination or superstitious
    wanderings.)
