St. Teresa of Avila on Lack of Intelligence

“For many speak well but understand poorly; others speak little and without polish but they have the intelligence for a great deal of good. In fact, there is a holy simplicity that knows little about the affairs and style of the world but a lot about dealing with God” (Way of Perfection, Ch. 14, para. 2).
