How blind and foolish are those who arrest themselves at anything, however precious and good it may appear, when they can obtain possession of Him who is the Creator and God of all, the Infinite! Who can behold God and desire to regard anything else? Who that knows God can study anything else? Who that has tasted God's love can desire any other? Who that has experienced His presence can wish for anything but solitude? We are truly wise when we have arrived at the knowledge of the fact that we are fools; and truly learned when we acknowledge that we are ignorant.
