"O Lord!

"All our trouble comes to us
from not having our eyes fixed upon Thee.

"If we only looked
at the way along which we are walking,
we should soon arrive;
but we stumble and fall a thousand times
and stray from the way
because, as I say,
we do not set our eyes
on the true Way."
from The Way of Perfection, Chapter 16
by St. Teresa of Avila
