Gregory of Nyssa- from Sermons on the Song of Songs
Sermon on the Son of Songs, 12 (PG 44, 103607) quoted from The Roots of Christian Mysticism by Olivier Clement, New City Press, 1996, p 191.
"God introduces the soul that has been made holy to an alternate rhythm of enstasy and ecstasy
, of contentment and of a yearning for an irreducible otherness, so that the soul does not cease to renew its love and spread itself in the inexhaustible store of God's riches."
