“The Divine Sophia have I loved and sought from my youth; I have desired her to be my spouse. Ever have I loved her beauteous, radiant form. Ever have I prayed that she might be sent to abide with me, that she might work with me to the end that I might know what I lacked and what in me God would find acceptable. And since she had ever known and understood, had guided me in all my life’s activity, I am persuaded that even after death she will ever keep me safe, wrapped securely in her watchful, constant love”.

Written as a lament to Sophia by Giordano Bruno
