“Thought cannot comprehend God. And so, I prefer to abandon all I can know, choosing rather to love him whom I cannot know. Though we cannot know him we can love him.” –The Cloud of Unknowing
Let us not believe that we have received the divine kiss, if we know the truth without loving it or love it without understanding it. But blessed is that kiss whereby not only is God recognized but also the Father is loved; for there is never full knowledge without perfect love.
– Saint Bernard
