"Rejoice in tribulation knowing tribulation becomes endurance and endurance becomes tried virtue and tried virtue becomes hope and hope will never disappoint us for the charity of God is poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit that is given us."
Romans Chapter 5 verses 3-5

Whoever makes a habit of prayer should think only of doing everything to confirm his will to god's. Be assured that in this conformity Consists the highest perfection we can attain, and those who practice it with the greatest care will be favored by God's greatest gift and will make the quickest progress in the interior life. Do not imagine there re other secrets. All our good consists in this." St. Teresa of Avila.

The duel substance of Christ, the yearning so human, so super human, of man to attain God… Has always been a deep inscrutable mystery to me. My principle anguish and source of all my joy and sorrow from my youth onward has been the incessant, merciless battle between the spirit and the flesh… and my soul is the arena where these two armies have clashed and met. Nikos Kazantzakis

Romans: Chapter 7:15-17 
"I do not understand what I do, for it is not what I wish that I do, but what I hate, that I do. But if I do what I do not wish, I admit that the Law is good. Now therefore it is no longer I who do it, but the sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, no good dwells, because to wish is within my power, but I do not find the strength to accomplish what is good. For I do not the good that I wish, but the evil that I do not wish, I perform. Now if I do what I do not wish, it is no longer I who do it, but the sin that dwells in me." St. Paul

I feel that if not for God I can do nothing good because of myself I am nothing good without God.
