You asked me yesterday to transcribe for you that maxim of mine that is inscribed around the walls of the Academy. Receive it: “All things are directed from goodness to goodness. Rejoice in the present; set no value on property, seek no honors. Avoid excess; avoid activity. Rejoice in the present.”

-Marsilio Ficino, found in Meditations on the Soul
