Teresa of Avila

“It is love alone that gives worth to all things.”

“Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul.”

“Do not dismayed, at the number of things which you have to consider
before setting out on this divine journey,
which is the royal road to heaven.
By taking this road we gain such precious treasures
that it is no wonder if the cost seems to us a high one.
The time will come when we shall realize that all we have paid
has been nothing at all by comparison with the greatness of our prizes.”

“Each of us has a soul, but we forget to value it.
We don’t remember that we are creatures made in the image of God.
We don’t understand the great secrets hidden inside of us.”

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

– Teresa of Avila
