set always before you the image of the Crucified

Be mindful of the purpose you have embraced, and set always before you the image of the Crucified. Good cause have you to be ashamed in looking upon the life of Jesus Christ, seeing you have not as yet endeavored to conform yourself more unto Him, though you have been a long time in the way of God. A religious person that exercises himself seriously and devoutly in the most holy life and passion of our Lord, shall there abundantly find whatsoever is profitable and necessary for him; neither shall he need to seek any better thing, besides Jesus.

Imitation of Christ, by Thomas á Kempis: Book 1, Chapter 25
