Quote of the Day (Thomas Traherne, on ‘Your Enjoyment of the World’)

“Your enjoyment of the world is never right till every morning you awake in Heaven; see yourself in your Father's Palace; and look upon the skies, the earth, and the air, as Celestial Joys: having such a reverend esteem of all, as if you were among the Angels.”—English poet and Anglican priest Thomas Traherne (1636?-1674), Centuries of Meditation, edited by Bertram Dobell (1908)
