Rudolf Steiner: "Plato's 'dialogue on love,' the Symposium, describes an initiation. In this initiation, love appears as the herald of wisdom. If wisdom, the eternal Word or Logos, is the Son of the eternal World Creator, then love has a motherly relationship with this Logos. Before a bright spark of the light of wisdom can flash forth in the human soul, there must exist a darker longing, a tug toward the divine. We must be drawn unconsciously toward what later, raised into consciousness, will constitute our highest joy."
