Why then was this forbid? Why but to awe,
Why but to keep ye low and ignorant,
His worshippers; he knows that in the day
Ye eat thereof, your eyes shall seem so clear,
Yet are but dim, shall perfectly be then
Opened and cleared, and ye shall be as gods,
[…] And what are gods that man may not become
As they, participating godlike food?
The gods are first, and that advantage use
On our belief, that all from them proceeds;
I question it, for this fair earth I see,
Warmed by the sun, producing every kind,
Them nothing: if they all things, who enclosed
Knowledge of good and evil in this tree,
That whoso eats thereof, forthwith attains
Wisdom without their leave? And wherein lies
Th’offense, that man should thus attain to know?
What can your knowledge hurt him, or this tree
Impart against his will if all be his?
Or is it envy, and can envy dwell
In heav’nly breasts? These, these and many more
Causes import your need of this fair fruit.
Goddess humane, reach then, and freely taste.
—Satan convincing Eve to eat the apple in John Milton’s Paradise Lost (Book XI). (via acitymadeofsong)
When you are ready for grace, grace will arrive.
If you expect trouble, trouble will hurry to your door. Look for grace.
