If there is ever anyone who at any time has burned with the faithful love for the Word of God; if there is anyone who, as the Prophet says, has received the sweet wound of him who is the “chosen dart”; if there is anyone who has been pierced by the loveable spear of his knowledge, so that he sighs and longs for him day and night, is able to speak of nothing else, wishes to hear of nothing else, can think of nothing else, and is not disposed to desire, seek or hope for anything other than him, then such as soul truly says,”I have been wounded by love.”

-Origen
