I love this quote.

"If someone comes to you for help, you shall not turn him off with pious words and kneel in prayer to recommend him to God; you shall act as if there were no God, as if there were only one person in all the world who could help him: you yourself."

Quoted from a book of a rabbi's teachings in A View of the Ocean, by Jan de Hartog.

Kind of reminds me of that quote by St. Augustine..."Pray like everything depends on God. Work like everything depends on you."
