QuotationSpent an hour or more on Baker's Inner Life of Dame Gertrude carefully reading the chapters on "Divine Inspiration" (or part of them). I can see clearly how much I have failed in this attention where my active life is concerned-especially in my eagerness to publish, to make contacts, to spread messages. How wrong I have been!
