"Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul." St Teresa of Avila
Going old school for my famous women quotes - real, real old school
St. Teresa of Avila
(1515-1582) born on Mar 28
Spanish "mystic, poet". "She was one of the great mystics and religious women of the Roman Catholic church; author of spiritual classics, e.g., "The Interior Castle," 1575."
"I only wish I could write with both hands, so as not to forget one thing while I am saying another."
“It is love alone that gives worth to all things”
“I do not fear Satan half so much as I fear those who fear him.”
"Untilled soil, however fertile it may be, will bear thistles and thorns; and so it is with man's mind."
Nice quotes but uh-oh - see where her eyes are looking up at? :)
