lain there

"It is a delusion to seek a sort of ready-made perfection which can be assumed like a garment; it is a delusion, too, to aim at a holiness which costs no trouble, although such holiness would be no doubt exceedingly agreeable to nature. We think that if we could discover the secret of sanctity we should become saints quickly and easily. We shall the rest of our lives be making new and fresh discoveries of plague spots in our nature upon which the Cross must be laid." -Francis de Sales and L.E Maxwell
