O God, ever the same, may I know myself, may I know you.
(Soliloquia II, 1, 1)
All I ask in my prayer is to know God and the soul, that is what I want.
There is an origin and source of virtue. There is a root of wisdom. And, there is, so to speak, a region of changeless truth. If the soul leaves this region, it lives in darkness but, when it approaches this region, it is enlightened.
(En. in ps. 58, S 1, 18)
