“I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: Oh Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it."
“I talk to God but the sky is empty.”
“The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.”
“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of ones weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”
“For the happy man prayer is only a jumble of words, until the day when sorrow comes to explain to him the sublime language by means of which he speaks to God.”
