Marsilio Ficino

“O boundless light, observing yourself, seeing all things in yourself! 

  O infinite sight, shining from yourself, illuminating all!

  O spiritual eye, whom alone and by whom alone, spiritual eyes see!

  O immortal life of those that see!

  O all goodness of the living!”  (Letter 116, v.1)

“My love is religious and my religion full of love.  Indeed, creation is so ordered that there is no true love that is not religious, nor is there any true religion but that sustained by love.”   (Letter 48, v.1)
