For though I am a body of this earth, my firm desire is born from the stars.
I saw the tracks of angels in the earth: the beauty of heaven walking by itself on the world.
I looked back at the summit of the mountain, which seemed but a cubit high in comparison with the height of human contemplation, were in not too often merged in the corruptions of the earth.
How fortune brings to earth the over-sure!
What name to call thee by, O virgin fair, I know not, for thy looks are not of earth And more than mortal seems thy countenances

Hitherto your eyes have been darkened and you have looked too much, yes, far too much, upon the things of earth. If these so much delight you what shall be your rapture when you lift your gaze to things eternal!
