"The love of truth drives us from the world to God: and the truth of love drives us from God to the world."The line was attributed to William of Saint-Thierry, but after looking around for some time, I could not find any source given for it, or for the original if this turned out to be a paraphrase. So I asked on Facebook (since I have an inordinate number of friends who might also read in such directions) whether, by any miracle of miracles, anyone could both manage to see this and to point me in the right direction.
And, wonder of wonders, Josh Warner came through with a consult from his former abbot, Dom Stanislaus, who wrote, "The quote is from # 11 of his Meditations (11:13). A similar balance occurs in On Contemplating God 1:1."
I love it when a plan comes together.
