There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers.
Take God for your spouse and friend and walk with Him continually, and you will not sin, will learn to love, and the things you must do will work out prosperously for you.
Remember that you have only one soul; that you have only one death to die; that you have only one life. . . . If you do this, there will be many things about which you care nothing.
Prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.
Patient endurance attaineth to all things; who God possesseth in nothing is wanting; alone God sufficeth.
More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones.
Learn to self-conquest, persevere thus for a time, and you will perceive very clearly the advantage which you gain from it. As soon you apply yourself to orison, you will at once feel your senses gather themselves together: they seem like bees which return to the hive and there shut themselves up to work at the making of honey. At the first call of the will, they come back more and more quickly. At last, after countless exercises, of this kind, God disposes them to a state of utter rest and of perfect contemplation.
God aids the valiant...both to you and to me He will give the help needed.
Be gentle to all, and stern with yourself.
