A Quote by Fra Giovanni Giocondo on generosity, gifts, judgment, life, love, power, ugliness, and wisdom

Life is so generous a giver, but we, judging its gifts by the covering, cast them away as ugly or heavy or hard. Remove the covering and you will find beneath it a living splendor, woven of love, by wisdom, with power.

Giovanni Giocondo (1433 - 1515)
