Introspects

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.   ST. AUGUSTINE OF HIPPO 354-430 AD 

Contemplation is nothing else but a secret, peaceful, and loving infusion of God, which, if admitted, will set the soul on fire with the Spirit of Love.  ST. JOHN OF THE CROSS  1542-1591
