A Cricket Repeating a Swan

“And you gave a shock to the weakness of my sight by the strong radiance of your rays, and I trembled with love and awe. And I found myself far from you in a region of dissimilarity, and I heard, as it were, your voice from on high: ‘I am the food of the fully grown; grow and you will feed on me. And you will not change me into you like the food your flesh eats, but you will be changed into me.’

Aurelius Augustine
Confessions Book VII, X (16)
