this sentence snuck up on me

The good Jesus, then, has taught us a sublime method of prayer, and begged that, in this our life of exile, we may be like the angels, if we endeavour, with our whole might, to make our actions conform to our words - in short, to be like the children of such a Father, and the brethren of such a Brother.

- The Way of Perfection by St. Teresa of Avila

I'm not deeply religious, but that strikes me as a nice way of putting things. I think I have a new favorite book.
