"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."

The Cure' of Ars, St. Jean Vianney

It makes me think of how one has to keep a pure intention and be ready to do things differently to improve one's habits!!

Nothing is anything more to me;
 everything is nothing to me, but Jesus:
 neither things nor persons, neither ideas nor emotions,
 neither honor nor sufferings.
Jesus is for me honor, delight, heart and soul.

All living creatures are sparks from the radiation of God's brilliance, and these sparks emerge from God like the rays of the sun. If God did not give off these sparks, how would the divine flame become fully visible?

Compared to vinegar it certainly is; both have heir uses though.

"And we know that the eunuch who was reading Isaiah the prophet,
 and did not understand what he read,
was not sent by the Apostle to an angel,
nor was it an angel who explained to him what he did not understand,
nor was he inwardly illuminated by the grace of God without the interposition of man;
on the contrary, at the suggestion of God, Philip, who did understand the prophet,
came to him, and sat with him, and in human words, and with a human tongue,
 opened to him the Scriptures."
 St. Augustine of Hippo ("On Christian Doctrine")

One can read the Bible and not understand it. This is where those who advocate for private interpretation of the Bible, missed  the boat.
