The Delight of Eternity

"But, as it is written,
'What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man imagined, 
what God has prepared for those who love him.'"
1 Corinthians 2:9

"The conversation led us towards the conclusion that the pleasure of the bodily senses, however delightful in the radiant light of this physical world, is seen by comparison with the life of eternity to be not even worth considering."

Saint Augustine, Confessions, page 171.
