"For we shall truly see in heaven, without end, that we have sinned grievously in this life; but notwithstanding this, we will see that we were never diminished in His love, we never lost any of our precious value in His sight. And so, by virtue of this falling, we shall have a high, marvelous knowing of the love of God, without end. For strong and marvelous is that love, which may not, and will not, be broken for trespass."
- Julian of Norwich, 14th-century English anchoress and Christian mystic, from her classic book, Revelations of Divine Love
