Franciscan Quotes: St. Anthony of Padua
"Actions speak louder than words; let your words teach and your actions speak. We are full of words but empty of actions and therefore are cursed by the Lord, since he himself cursed the fig tree when he found no fruit but only leaves. It is useless for a man to flaunt his knowledge of the law if he undermines its teaching by his actions."
