” The feeling remains that God is on the journey, too. “


” O my God, what must a soul be like when it is in this state! It longs to be all one tongue with which to praise the Lord. It utters a thousand pious follies, in a continuous endeavor to please Him who thus possesses it. “


” We can only learn to know ourselves and do what we can – namely, surrender our will and fulfill God’s will in us. “


” God gave us faculties for our use, each of them will receive its proper reward. Then do not let us try to charm them to sleep, but permit them to do their work until divinely called to something higher. “


” God has been very good to me, for I never dwell upon anything wrong which a person has done, so as to remember it afterwards. If I do remember it, I always see some other virtue in that person. “


” Anyone who truly loves God travels securely. “


” For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God. “
