"Let us not permit our will to be enslaved by anyone except by Him who paid for it with His blood." - St. Teresa of Avila.
Draw away from me, you creatures that don't deserve the love of my heart. I am worth more than the whole world, and I do not want to sell myself for anything or for anyone.
I belong to Jesus by natural right, by right of conquest, by right of purchase, by my own election.
Remember, that you have only one soul. You will die only once, and you have but one short life. There is only one glory, and this is eternal.
-from the daily meditations of the miles christi order.
