Our redemption through the suffering of Christ is that deeper love within us which not only frees us from slavery to sin, but also secures for us the true liberty of the children of God, in order that we might do all things out of love rather than out of fear - love for him that has shown us such grace that no greater can be found.
Peter Abelard


Other quotes by Peter Abelard

It is by doubting that we come to investigate, and by investigating that we recognize the truth.

Logic has made me hated in the world.

I preferred the weapons of dialectic to all the other teachings of philosophy, and armed with these, I chose the conflicts of disputation rather than the trophies of war.

The key to wisdom is this - constant and frequent questioning, for by doubting we are led to question and by questioning we arrive at the truth.

The men who abandon themselves to the passions of this miserable life, are compared in Scripture to beasts.
