as translated by Rosemary Edmonds
  • Most people neither hear nor understand God speaking in their hearts: they listen to the urging of passion, which inhabits the soul and with its clamour drowns the still small voice of God.
    • p. 79
  • No sin is unforgivable except the sin that is not repented of.
    • p. 83
