“God has ordered us to do all we can to acquire holy virtues. Therefore, let us forget nothing that can bring success in this devout enterprise. But after we have planted and watered, we must realize that it is for God to give the increase to the trees that are our good inclinations and habits. For this reason we must wait to obtain the fruits of our desire and labor from His Divine Providence.”

~St Frances de Sales, Finding God’s Will for You
