There is a tendency today for people to say, with greater or less distress, that they have no time for prayer. This is not true. (Forgive me). What they mean is, they have not got a peaceful hour or two peaceful half-hours or even three peaceful twenty minutes. If that is the day God has given them, then he awaits their praying hearts under precisely these conditions… Take these times, poor crumbs of minutes though they be, and give yourself to God in them.
– Sister Wendy Becket, The Mystery of Love: Saints in art through the centuries, from the introduction

No time? Pray anyway. This from a neat book about saints in art. Seems to be a recurring theme these days. I can take a hint.
