The Practice of the Presence of God

I just got this fantastic book, The Practice of the Presence of God, by Brother Lawrence, on Wednesday. (Thank-you, Grandpa!) It's a small book, but "it's not the quantity, but the quality that counts," right? So far, I've mostly only read the foreword, but I've got a few quotes already!!

"We can...retire from time to time to converse with Him in meekness, humility, and love. Everyone is capable of such familiar conversation with God..."
"You need not cry very loud; He is nearer to us than we are aware of."
"It is our one business, my brethren, to worship Him and love Him, without thought of anything else."

I have more written out, but I don't want to quote the whole book!
