A Quote by Fra Giovanni Giocondo on angels, belief, contentment, duty, gifts, sorrow, and wonder

Everything we call a trial, a sorrow or a duty, believe me, that angel's hand is there, the gift is there, and the wonder of an overshadowing presence. Our joys, too, be not content with them as joys. They, too, conceal diviner gifts.

Giovanni Giocondo (1433 - 1515)
