There are three types of people who approach the Lord: a) the eagle type, which swoops down on the target with a greedy swiftness and suddenness that, by its very impact, fails to secure the object coveted; b) The monkey type, which flits hither and thither, from one fruit to another, unable to decide which is tasty; c) and the ant type, which moves steadily but slowly toward the desirable object. The ant does not hit the fruit hard and make it fall away, nor does it pluck all the fruits it sees; it appropriates just as much as it can assimilate, and no more. Do not fritter away the time allotted to you for sojourning on Earth in foolish foppery and fault finding, which always keep you outdoors. When are you going to walk indoors into the warmth and quiet of your own interior? Now and then, retire into solitude and silence; experience the joy derivable only from within.
