"I want to live an entirely new life.
No one must know the struggles, regrets, and griefs that, like every other person, I endure; I must organize my life in such a way that all its various and sometimes complicated duties have their place.
Since I do not have a consistent life in broad, clear lines but must partly conceal my inmost being in order to encounter ideas and feelings opposed to mine, I want at least to unite with this first duty my desire to work for God and for others.
It is a delicate task, for which I need the help of a strength beyond my own.
Help me, my God, and, without my knowing it, use me for a little good."
~ Elisabeth Leseur (+1914)
