"I desired in many ways to know what was our Lord's meaning. And 15 years after and more, I was answered in spiritual understanding, and it was said: What, do you wish to know your Lord's meaning in this thing? Know it well, love was his meaning. Who reveals it to you? Love. What did he reveal to you? Love. Why does he reveal it to you? For love. Remain in this, and you will know more of the same. But you will never know different, without end."

- Julian of Norwich (1342-1416), from her The Revelations of Divine Love
