someone else’s words today

This having learned, thou hast attained the sum of wisdom; hope no higher, though all the stars thou knowest by name, and all th’ethereal powers, all secrets of the deep, all nature’s works, or works of God in heaven, air, earth or sea and all riches of this world enjoy’dst, and all thy rule, one empire. Only add deeds to thy knowledge answerable, add faith, add virtue, patience, temperance, add love, by name to some called charity, the soul of all the rest: then wilt thou not be loath to leave this paradise, but shall possess a paradise within thee, happier far. . .

                                                             ~ John Milton
