"Consider a calm, beautiful night and think how good it is to see the sky with its countless varied stars. Next add its beauty to that of a fine day in such a way that the brilliant sun does not prevent a clear view of the stars or moon. Then say boldly that all this beauty put together is of no value when compared to the excellence of God's paradise."— St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622), bishop of Geneva and Doctor of the Church, Philothea (God loving Soul), or The Introduction to the Devout Life (1609)
