                            Beauty is indeed a good gift of God; but that the good may not think it a great good, God dispenses it even to the wicked.

                                        Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.

                                          God does not give heed to the ambitiousness of our prayers, because he is always ready to give to us his light, not a visible light but an intellectual and spiritual one; but we are not always ready to receive it when we turn aside and down to other things out of a desire for temporal things.

                                              He that is kind is free, though he is a slave; he that is evil is a slave, though he be a king.

                                                Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.

                                                    Humility is the foundation of all the other virtues hence, in the soul in which this virtue does not exist there cannot be any other virtue except in mere appearance.

                                                      Better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all.
