Quote of the day: 21 March

Don’t let anything disturb you,
don’t let anything scare you,
everything passes,
God doesn’t move,
patience
achieves everything.
Whoever has God
lacks nothing.
God alone is enough.

Saint Teresa of Avila

Poetry 9: On the efficacy of patience

Nada te turbe,
nada te espante,
todo se pasa,
Dios no se muda,
la paciencia
todo lo alcanza.
Quien a Dios tiene
nada le falta.
Sólo Dios basta.

Teresa of Avila, St. 1985, The Collected Works of St. Teresa of Avila, translated from the Spanish by Kavanaugh, K; Rodriguez, O, ICS Publications, Washington DC.
