Magnificence

One keeps his soul uncontaminated for God if he strives to direct his thought to think on God alone and on his virtues, who sets up his reason as a true interpreter and exegete of his virtues, and who teaches his senses to reflect honestly on the sensible world and whatever it contains so as to announce to the soul the magnificence of the principles of things.

Maximus Confessor
