You see creation; love the Author of these marvels. Attach yourself to the one who is essential. Love the Creator!
From infancy to old age, each age in all men has its own special beauty.
(De div. quaest. LXXXIII q.44)
Fly over what is bodily and embrace the being of the soul; transcend the soul and please God.
(In Io. Ev. XX, 11)
