QUOTATION: No Boasting

Blessed John Henry Newman
There can be no boasting towards God even on the part of His most matured saints and exactest servants. There can, I say, be no boasting, because whatever we do is the fruit of His grace, and because we do very little, and because, in spite of His grace, what we do is infected with sin, and because even if we did all, we should be doing no more than we are bound to do.

--Blessed John Henry Newman, "Reliance on Religious Observances", Parochial and Plain Sermons, Vol.4
