„That alone completes a spirit and blesses it, — to love Him, the spring of spirits.“

—  Robert Leighton 17th century Archbishop of Glasgow, and Principal of the University of Edinburgh 1611 - 1684

Reported in Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 449.
Kontext: It is a union with a Higher Good by love, that alone is endless perfection. The only sufficient object for man must be something that adds to and perfects his nature, to which he must be united in love; somewhat higher than himself, yea, the highest of all, the Father of spirits. That alone completes a spirit and blesses it, — to love Him, the spring of spirits.
