cowSome people, I swear, want to love God in the same way as they love a cow. They love it for its milk and cheese and the profit they will derive from it.
Those who love God for the sake of outward riches or for the sake of inward consolation operate on the same principle. They are not loving God correctly; they are merely loving their own advantage.
— Meister Eckhart
