Eckardus Theutonicus ... homo doctus et sanctus...
Liber de viris illustribus Ordinis Praedicatorum, n. 48
Man never desires anything so earnestly as God desires to bring a man to Himself, that he may know Him.
God is always ready, but we are very unready; God is near to us, but we are far from Him;
God is within, but we are without; God is at home, but we are strangers...
