The Divine Comedy: Paradise1320
While sight was unconsumed, and, in that depth, saw in one volume clas’d of love, whatever the univers unfolds; all properties of substance and accident, beheld, compounded, yet one individual light the whole. Ans of such bond methinks I saw the universal form; for whenever I do but speak of it, my soul dilates.
