"Have an intimate desire that His Majesty grant you what He knows you lack for his honor... Perfection does not lie in the virtues the soul knows it has but in the virtues which our Lord sees in it. This is a closed book." - St. John of the Cross

How surprised we will be when we finally stand before God! The virtues we thought we had were not virtues at all, and the work we spent all our lives doing were not pleasing to Him at all, because they were all accomplished following our own will and our own pleasure.
