Rather, 'it is love alone that can reach God in this life.'

But if we have the courage and the ability to follow him, we shall not find that our efforts has been in vain."

"So set yourself to rest in this darkness as long as you can, always crying out after him whom you love. For if you are to experience him or to see him at all, insofar as it is possible here, it must always be in this cloud ..."
