From goodness itself only good can spring. And what proceeds from that can only be ordered well. Therefore, everything should be accepted for the best. Who thus understands the divine, and loves it, is divine by nature, good in practice, joyful in hope, blessed in reward.
Marsilio Ficino (1433 - 1499) Neoplatonist philosopher and leader of the Platonic Academy in Florence. Influential in the rise of the Renaissance.
