From The Knowledge of the Holy:

“Shall we allow a saintly and thoughful man to exhort us?  Hear Anselm; or better still, heed his words:

Up now, slight man!  Flee for a little while thy occupations; hide thyself for a time from thy disturbing thoughts.  Cast aside now thy burdensome cares, and put away thy toilsome business.  Yield room for some little time to God, and rest for a little time in Him.  Enter the inner chamber of thy mind; shut out all thoughts save that of God and such as can aid thee in seeking Him.  Speak now, my whole heart! Speak now to God, saying, I seek Thy face; Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
