Ambrose
Accordingly, death is a harbor of peace for the just, but is believed a shipwreck for the wicked.
Ambrose quotes
Neither angel, nor archangel, nor yet even the Lord Himself (who alone can say "I am with you"), can, when we have sinned, release us, unless we bring repentance with us.
Ambrose
It is not death therefore that is burdensome, but the fear of death.




Ambrose quotes
The emperor is in the Church, not above the Church.
Ambrose
When I am at Rome, I fast on a Saturday; when I am at Milan, I do not. Follow the custom of the church where you are.
Ambrose quotes
Si fueris Romae, Romano vivito more;
Si fueris alibi, vivito sicut ibi.
Ambrose
Ante agnus offerebatur, offerebatur et vitulus, nunc Christus offertur...et offert se ipse quasi sacerdos, ut peccata nostra dimittat. Hic in imagine, ibi in veritate, ubi apud Patrem pro nobis quasi advocatus intervenit.
Ambrose quotes
It was not by dialectic that it pleased God to save His people.
Ambrose
In some causes silence is dangerous; so if any know of conspiracies against their country or king, or any that might greatly prejudice their neighbor, they ought to discover it.
