There is hardly ever a complete silence in the soul. God is whispering to us well-nigh incessantly. Whenever the sounds of the world die out in the soul, or sink low, then we hear the whisperings of God. He is always whispering to us, only we do not hear, because of the noise, hurry, and distraction which life causes as it rushes on. —F. W. Faber

the reward of faith is to see what you believe.
Painting from nature is not copying the object, it is
realizing sensations Paul Cezanne
