A Praying Life by Paul E. Miller
“Sometimes when we say "God is silent," what's really going on is that he hasn't told the story the way we wanted it told. He will be silent when we want him to fill in the blanks of the story we are creating. But with his own stories, the ones we live in, he is seldom silent.”
Paul E. Miller

Vladimir Nabokov
“Dear Jesus, do something.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Pale Fire

“Lord, to the degree I don't want to do this, bless me.”
Luci Swindoll

Thérèse de Lisieux
“For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.”
Thérèse de Lisieux

“Spirituality without a prayer life is no spirituality at all, and it will not last beyond the first defeats. Prayer is an opening of the self so that the Word of God can break in and make us new. Prayer unmasks. Prayer converts. Prayer impels. Prayer sustains us on the way. Pray for the grace it will take to continue what you would like to quit.”
Joan D. Chittister, In a High Spiritual Season

Hermann Hesse
“Oh, love isn't there to make us happy. I believe it exists to show us how much we can endure.”
Hermann Hesse, Wer lieben kann, ist glücklich. Über die Liebe
