    Marguerite Porete
    Theologians and other clerks, You won't understand this book, -- However bright your wits -- If you do not meet it humbly, And in this way, Love and Faith Make you surmount Reason, for They are the protectors of Reason's house.
    Marguerite Porete

    Augustine of Hippo

    Augustine of Hippo
