Quote of the Day: St. Vincent de Paul

"To rely on our talents is a cause of great loss. When someone places confidence in his own prudence, knowledge, and intelligence, God, to make him know and see his insufficiency, withdraws from him His help and leaves him to work by himself. This is often why our undertakings miserably fail. "

~ St Vincent de Paul

I can definitely relate to this quote, too, as I am sure many can.
