The glory of Him who moves all things rays forth (from The Paradiso, Canto I)

The glory of Him who moves all things rays forth
     through all the universe, and is reflected
     from each thing in proportion to its worth.

I have been in that Heaven of His most light,
     and what I saw, those who descend from there
     lack both the knowledge and the power to write.

For as our intellect draws near its goal
     it opens to such depths of understanding
     as memory cannot plumb within the soul.
