Seeing the Source

We are going to see a certain vision, therefore, brothers, which neither the eye has seen nor the ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man (1 Cor 2:9)--a certain surpassing vision that excels all earthly beauties of gold, and silver, of glades and fields, the beauty of sea and sky, the beauty of sun and moon, the beauty of the stars, the beauty the angels, all things, because it is from this that all things are beautiful.

Augustine, Fourth Homily on the First Epistle of John
