I found this quote in a book I am reading about prayer. I have tried to find it on line but was not successful. I hope that someone here is familiar with it. It made me laugh that is why I want to reproduce it. It is not your regular sounding quote either. I think the saint is talking about Eucharistic Adoration.
Here it is:
" When we feel that God is looking at us and is listening, it is good to remain quiet and listen to Him.
But otherwise we cannot just sit there like idiots doing nothing."
Saint Teresa of Avila

But normally one would think of carnivals and mardi gras!

'Salvation is necessary, because there is no middle way - we must either be saved or lost. It will not do to say: I shall be satisfied with not going to hell; I shall not be concerned at being deprived of heaven. No; either heaven or hell; either forever happy with God in heaven in an ocean of delights, or forever trampled upon by devils in hell in an ocean of fire and torments: either saved, or lost; there is no alternative.'

'For oftentimes by reason of their own sins the tongue of preachers is tied, oftentimes on the other hand it is because of the sins of their people that the gift of eloquence is withheld from pastors. By reason of their own sins the tongue of preachers is tied, according to the words of the Psalmist, "But to the sinner God hath said, Why dost thou declare My justices?" (Ps. xlix. 16.) And again, the voice of preachers is hindered because of the sins of the people, according to the words of the Lord to Ezechiel: "I will make thy tongue stick fast to the roof of thy mouth, and thou shalt be dumb, and not as a man that reproveth, because they are a provoking house" (Ezec. iii. 26).

As though He said expressly: The gift of eloquence is withdrawn from thee, because while the people offend Me by their sins they are not worthy to have the truth preached to them. Through whose fault it is that speech is with drawn from the preacher is no easy matter to decide. But that the silence of the pastor is hurtful to himself sometimes, and to his flock at all times, is beyond all doubt.

But if we cannot preach as efficiently as we ought, would that by innocence of life we held the rank that befits our office. For the Gospel adds, "Behold I send you as lambs among wolves."'

"I myself have read the writings and teachings of the heretics, polluting my soul for a while with their abominable notions, though deriving this benefit: I was able to refute them for myself and loathe them even more.”

"Never forget that it is at the beginning of each day that God has the necessary grace for the day ready for us.
  He knows exactly what opportunities we shall have to sin...and will give us everything we need if we ask him then.
 That is why the Devil does all he can to prevent us from saying our Morning Prayers or to make us say them badly."
