Thomas A Kempis

Do not be anxious to win a great name for yourself, to have a familiar acquaintance of many, nor the particular affection of any person; for such things cause distractions and will rob you of your peace of mind.

If only you would watch faithfully for my coming and open the door of your heart to Me, I would gladly speak to you and reveal to you My secrets.  Be prudent, watchful in prayer, and humble yourself in all things.
