"Now then, little man, for a short time flee from your business. Hide yourself for a moment from your turbulent thoughts. Break off now your troublesome cares, and think less of your laborious occupations. Make a little time for God, and rest for a while in him. Enter into the chamber of your mind, shut out everything but God and whatever helps you to seek him, and, when you have shut the door, seek him. Speak now, O my whole heart, speak now to God: 'I seek your face; your face, O Lord, do I desire.'"
-Anselm of Canterbury, Proslogion.
