Gregory of Nyssa Quote – “Someone who has purified the eyes of his soul…”

When someone whose mind is but partially developed sees something clothed in some semblance of beauty, he believes that this thing is beautiful in its own nature… but someone who has purified the eyes of his soul and is trained to see beautiful things makes use of the visible as a springboard to rise to the contemplation of the spiritual.

Gregory of Nyssa (circa 335 – 395)
