Teresa of Avila

  1. Let nothing perturb you, nothing frighten you. All things pass. God does not change. Patience achieves everything.
  2. We need no wings to go in search of Him, but have only to look upon Him present within us.
  3. Christ has no body now, but yours. No hands, no feet on earth, but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ looks compassion into the world.Yours are the feet with which Christ walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which Christ blesses the world.
  4. You pay God a compliment by asking great things of Him.
  5. May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.
  6. I know the power obedience has of making things easy which seem impossible.
  7. Our body has this defect that, the more it is provided care and comforts, the more needs and desires it finds.
  8. To have courage for whatever comes in life – everything lies in that.
  9. Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul.
  10. The tree that is beside the running water is fresher and gives more fruit.
