In The Ascent to Mount Carmel, written between 1578 and 1579, the Catholic mystic St. John of the Cross teaches:
To reach satisfaction in all
desire its possession in nothing.
To come to possess all
desire the possession of nothing.
To arrive at being all
desire to be nothing.
To come to the knowledge of all
Desire the knowledge of nothing.
