One final thought, provided by Bernard of Chartres, "nanos gigantum humeris insidentes"--We are dwarfs standing on the shoulders of giants.
La frase que individualiza al Humanismo esta recogida por Juan de Salisbury y le pertenece a su agrafo maestro, Bernardo de Chartres: "Dicebat Bernardus Carnotensis nos esse quasi nanos gigantium humeris insidentes, ut possimus plura eis et remotiora videre, non utique proprii visus acumine, aut eminentia corporis, sed quia in altum subvehimur et extollimur magnitudine gigantea" (60) Este enunciado no habla tan solo de descristianizar la cultura pagana, sino de integrarla, con su peculiaridad, en el cristianismo.
Filii dilectissimi, diligenter considerate Ordinem per vos susceptum, ac onus humeris vestris impositum; studete sancte et religiose vivere, atque omnipotenti Deo placere, ut gratiam suam possitis acquirere: quam ipse vobis per suam misericordiam concedere dignetur.
