Don't be curious of matters that don't concern you; never speak of them, and don't ask about them.
O Lord, all our troubles come to us because we do not have our eyes fixed on you. If only we looked at the path we're walking, we would soon arrive. But, we stumble and fall a thousand times and we stray because we do not set our eyes on the true Way.
Let us remember that within us there is a palace of immense magnificence.
Granting that we are always in the presence of God, yet it seems to me that those who pray are in His presence in a very different sense; for they, as it were, see that He is looking upon them, while others may go for days on end without even once recollecting that God sees them.
More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones.
From silly devotions and from sour-faced saints, good Lord, deliver us.
