Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.
Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
Give us this day our daily faith, but deliver us, dear God, from belief.
Once you have surrendered yourself, you make yourself receptive. In receiving from God, you are perfected and completed.
