Teresa of Avila Quotes and Quotations


Let nothing disturb you, nothing frighten you; all things are passing; God never changes.
- Teresa of Avila | Faith and Fear Quotes

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.
