“For God’s wisdom is incomparable with respect to your own, and God’s providence is not obliged to be responsible for your cleverness. You have only to obey in love. A man, on the contrary, you must only — yet, no, this is the highest — you must love a man as yourself; if you can better perceive his best than he can, then you will not be able to excuse yourself by the fact that the harmful thing was his own wish, was what he himself asked for.”
