St. Bernard of Clairvaux on Grace and Free Will

Here's a wonderfully succinct summary of how grace and free will are related.Take away free will, and there is nothing that needs to be saved; take away grace, and there is no way to save it. - St. Bernard, On Grace and Free Will, I.2; quoted in Pelikan, The Growth of Medieval Theology, 156.
