The power of one fair face makes my love sublime, for it has weaned my heart from low desires.
Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475 - 1564)

Trifles make perfection, and perfection is no trifle.
I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.
Genius is eternal patience.
Lord, grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish.
Lord, grant that I may always desire more than I accomplish.
Death and love are the two wings that bear the good man to heaven.
If it be true that any beautiful thing raises the pure and just desire of man from earth to God, the eternal fount of all, such I believe my love.
Beauty is the purgation of superfluities.
I live and love in God's peculiar light.
