One who believes that he will perceive the sun’s light without the sun’s aid deservedly falls into darkness; he is not raised into light. So one who pursues this truth and that truth, separated from the highest truth, without doubt does not light upon truth but upon falsehood. No wonder that whoever searches for the nectar of heaven in the Stygian marsh deservedly drinks the genuine gall of opinion beneath the illusory honey of knowledge – Marsilio Ficino
