"It is therefore, nothing strange for the soul to desire to die by beholding the beauty of God in order to enjoy Him for ever.  If the soul had but one single glimpse of the majesty and beauty of God, not only would it desire to die once in order to see Him for ever, as it desires now, but would most joyfully undergo a thousand most bitter deaths to see Him even for a moment, and having seen Him would suffer as many deaths again to see Him for another moment"
 Spiritual Canticle [Stan X1] St John of the Cross
