Tuesday is Quote Day

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. No, that's not the quote of the day but just my way of flattering Happy Catholic. I really don't know how she gets it all done every day. She blogs frequently, she reviews (and reads!) lots of books, she does podcasts, she has a full-time job... I'm getting tired just listing all the stuff.

Anyways, here is today's quote...

The whole trouble is that -- literally -- we do not know what is good for us; and what makes the trouble still worse is that we think we do. We have our own plans for our happiness, and too often we merely regard God as somebody who will help us to accomplish them. The true state of affairs is just the opposite. God has His plans for our happiness, and He is waiting for us to help Him to accomplish them. And let us be quite clear about it: We cannot improve on God's plans.

This Tremendous Lover, M. Eugene Boylan, O.C.R.
