St. John of the Cross Quote – “To come to the pleasure you have not…”

To come to the pleasure you have not
You must go by a way in which you enjoy not.
To come to the knowledge you have not
You must go by a way in which you know not.
To come to the possession you have not
You must go by a way in which you possess not.
To come to be what you are not
You must go by a way in which you are not.

St. John of the Cross (1542 – 1591)
