„God does not listen to the prayers of the proud“

—  Alphonsus Maria de' Liguori

The Conditions Requisite for the Due Performance of Prayer http://books.google.com/books?id=bywYAQAAIAAJ&q=%22God+does+not+listen+to+the+prayers+of+the+proud%22&pg=PA435#v=onepage in: The complete works of Saint Alphonsus de Liguori: the ascetical works, Volume 2. Redemptorist Fathers, 1926. p. 435.
Kontext: Prayer must be humble: God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Here St. James tells us that God does not listen to the prayers of the proud, but resists them; while, on the other hand, he is always ready to hear the prayers of the humble.
