“This soul of ours hath love, and cannot but love some fair one;  and 0, what a fair 0ne, what an only 0ne, what an excellent, lovely, ravishing 0ne is Jesus! put the beauty of ten thousand thousand worlds, of paradises like the garden of Eden in one; put all trees, all flowers, all smells, all colours, all tastes, all joys, all sweetness, all loveliness in one;  0, what a fair and excellent thing would that be? And yet it would be less to that fair and dearest Well-Beloved Christ, than one drop of rain to the whole seas, rivers, lakes, and fountains of ten thousand earths.”
