    My friends, whoever has had experience of evils knows how whenever a flood of ills comes upon mortals, a man fears everything; but whenever a divine force cheers on our voyage, then we believe that the same fate will always blow fair.
    Aeschylus (525–456 B.C.)

    The Divine Vision still was seen,
    Still was the human form divine
    Weeping in weak & mortal clay;
    O Jesus, still the form was thine!

    It is an absolute and virtually divine perfection to know how to enjoy our being rightfully.
