The Taste Of God In Contemplation Is More Precious Than Everything Else

The taste of God in contemplation is more precious than everything else; for, no matter what a man might wish for, it is nothing when compared to this. For when the spirit of a man stands before God and sees his happiness and tastes his delights, then in truth he as attained to paradise. — Saint Anthony of Padua
