Those who are able to enclose themselves within the little heaven of their soul, wherein dwells the Creator of Heaven and earth, and have formed the habit of looking at nothing, and staying in no place which will distract them, may be sure that they are walking on an excellent road, and will without fail, drink of the living water.

Teresa of Avila, 'Way of Perfection' ch. 28
