God has two books. One uses words; the other doesn't need them. I am also two books for the world to read. One of my books also uses words, but the other doesn't need them. God's Word is to my words as nature is to my actions.

"There is nothing that can make the soul so strong to resist the temptations of Satan in the great conflict of life, as to seek God in humility, laying before Him your soul in all its helplessness, expecting that He will be your helper and your defender."

"Prayer is the answer to every problem in life.  It puts us in touch with divine wisdom which knows how to adjust everything perfectly.  So often we do not pray in certain situations because from our standpoint, the outlook is hopeless.  But nothing is so entangled that it cannot be remedied; no human relationship is too strained for God to bring about reconciliation and understanding; no habit so deep rooted that it cannot be overcome; no one is so weak that cannot be made strong.  No one is so ill that he cannot be healed.  No mind is so dull that it cannot be made brilliant.  Whatever we need, if we trust God, He will supply it.  If anything is causing worry or anxiety, let us stop rehearsing the difficulty and trust God for healing love and power."
