„I saw on earth another light
Than that which lit my eye
Come forth as from my soul within,
And from a higher sky.“

„Not from without us, only from within,
Comes or can ever come upon us light
Whereby the soul keeps ever truth in sight.“

—  Algernon Charles Swinburne English poet, playwright, novelist, and critic 1837 - 1909
Astrophel and Other Poems (1894), Context: Not from without us, only from within, Comes or can ever come upon us light Whereby the soul keeps ever truth in sight. No truth, no strength, no comfort man may win, No grace for guidance, no release from sin, Save of his own soul's giving. "The Monument of Giordano Bruno", inspired by the statue in memory of Giordano Bruno at the place where he was burned as a heretic.

„Grace is from God, and works in the depth of the soul whose powers it employs. It is a light which issues forth to do service under the guidance of the Spirit.“

—  Meister Eckhart German theologian 1260 - 1328
Context: Grace is from God, and works in the depth of the soul whose powers it employs. It is a light which issues forth to do service under the guidance of the Spirit. The Divine Light permeates the soul, and lifts it above the turmoil of temporal things to rest in God. The soul cannot progress except with the light which God has given it as a nuptial gift; love works the likeness of God into the soul. The peace, freedom and blessedness of all souls consist in their abiding in God's will. Towards this union with God for which it is created the soul strives perpetually.
