It is an old custom of the saints of God to have some little prayers ready and to be frequently darting them up to heaven during the day, lifting their minds to God out of the mire of this world. He who adopts this plan will obtain great fruits with little pain.
St. Phillip Neri
Arrow Prayers they are.
I love the "great fruits with little pain" bit  Grin

Lord have mercy on me!

Still on "little prayers", Saint John Chrysostom reportedly fired one up every hour. He had these 24 short prayers, one for every hour of the day and night. For instance:
"O Lord, of Thy heavenly bounties, deprive me not"

Quote
Because thou art fat-witted, and thus greasy like the pan. Go, and pour some water into thy mind, and thou wilt see that it will be cleansed. Pour in more and again it will become cleaner, and the more often thou shalt hear the word of God

Food for thought!

This is not a saints quote, but I love this story, hope you don't mind.

" And so seated next to my father in the train compartment, I suddenly asked, " Father, what is sexsin?"
He turned to look at me, as he always did when answering a question, but to my suprise he said nothing. At last he stood up, lifted his traveling case and set it on the floor.
" Will you carry it off the train, Corrie?" he said. I stood up and tugged at it. It was crammed with watches and spare parts he had purchased that morning.
"It's too heavy" I said.
"Yes," He said, "and it would be a pretty poor father who would ask his little girl to carry such a load. It's the same way, Corrie, with knowledge. Some knowledge is too heavy for children. When you are older and stronger, you can bear it.
For now you must trust me to carry it for you".
Corrie Ten Boom 

"Remember that the Christian life is one of action, not of speech and daydreams. Let there be few words and many deeds, and let them be done well"

Thank you haji.
To me, that father could only have been inspired to answer as he did. I will remember it and pass it on.

'The proper function of the soul's intelligent aspect is devo­tion to the knowledge of God, while that of its passible aspect is the pursuit of self-control and love.'

St. Thalassios the Libyan

'When your poor, restless heart turns by the grace of God towards the divine light, and conceives a wish to fly thither and be consumed therein, speak to God with profound reverence and gratitude of the wonders He did in becoming incarnate, suffering and dying for us.'
