When the servant has arrived at the rung of knowledge, God sends hin an inspiration; his joy becomes dull, and nothing is to his taste any longer, except the enjoyment of God. Buber, Ecstatic Confessions, P.20.

Whosoever seeks God sits in the shadow of his penitence, but whomsoever God seeks sits in the shadow of his innocence. Ibid., P.21.

Hours of divine enlightenment are shells that lie in the sea of our hearts; the morning of resurrection casts them up on shore, and they spring open. Ibid., P.21.
