MADAME GUYON
French mystic
(1648 - 1717)

Ah, if you knew what peace there is in an accepted sorrow!
      - [Sorrow]

It is a great truth, wonderful as it is undeniable, that all our happiness--temporal, spiritual and eternal--consists in one thing; namely, in resigning ourselves to God, and in leaving ourselves with Him, to do with us and in us just as He pleases.
      - [Happiness]

My soul was not only brought into harmony with itself and with God, but with God's providence. In the exercise of faith and love, I endured and performed whatever came in God's providence, in submission, in thankfulness, and silence.
      - [Resignation]

O my God, how true it is that we may have of Thy gifts and yet may be full of ourselves!
      - [Selfishness]

Our activity should consist in placing ourselves in a state of susceptibility to Divine impressions, and pliability to all the operations of the Eternal Word.
      - [Devout]

The soul seeks God by faith, not by the reasonings of the mind and labored efforts, but by the drawings of love; to which inclinations God responds, and instructs the soul, which co-operates actively. God then puts the soul in a passive state where He accomplishes all, causing great progress, first by way of enjoyment, then by privation, and finally by pure love.
      - [Faith in God]
