"It is ourselves who are often the cause of our own sterile arid state. God holds back consolations from us when we have a foolish complacence in them and are subject to the worms of presumption. When we neglect to gather the dear delights of God's love at the proper season, he takes them from us in punishment for our sloth."
St. Francis de Sales
