Weeping for God

"again and again they will think they are weeping for God but this will not be so in reality."

St. Teresa of Avila, Interior castle, Sixth mansions, chap. 6 (Complete works of St. Teresa of Jesus, translated and edited by E. Allison Peers, vol. 2 (London: Sheed & Ward, 1946), 300).  "Do not let us suppose that if we weep a great deal we have done everything that matters; let us also set to and work hard, and practise the virtues. . . ."
