Commonplace book #22

Posted by Erik on June 5, 2009

Oh! nobility! Oh! true and simple beauty! Goddess, the worship of whom signifies reason and wisdom, thou whose temple is an eternal lesson of conscience and truth, I come late to the threshold of thy mysteries; I bring to the foot of thy altar much remorse. Ere finding thee, I have had to make infinite search. The initiation which thou didst confer by a smile upon the Athenian at his birth I have acquired by force of reflection and long labour. – Ernest Renan, from “A Prayer on the Acropolis”

    I like that a great deal. I think that last bit is something all we modern Pagans can relate to. Thanks for posting it!
