Saint Teresa of Avila

I had to re-post this from one of my favorite blogs (Canterbury Tales)

Top Ten Quotes from Saint Teresa of Avila, Saint and Doctor of the Catholic Church:

  1. “Patience attains All that it strives for. He who has God Finds he lacks nothing: God alone suffices.”
  2. “It is love alone that gives worth to all things”
  3. “Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul.”
  4. “Pain is never permanent.”
  5. “To have courage for whatever comes in life - everything lies in that.”
  6. “What a great favor God does to those He places in the company of good people!”
  7. “More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones.”
  8. “It is true that we cannot be free from sin, but at least let our sins not be always the same.”
  9. (said of God): "If this is the way you treat your friends, it's no wonder you have so few!”
  10. “Let nothing disturb thee, nothing affright thee; all things are passing; God never changeth.
