The Mysteries of Eleusis

Men have called Love Eros because he has wings; the gods called him Pleros, for he has the power of giving wings.
—Plato, The Banquet

In heaven, learning is seeing; on earth, it is remembering. Happy is he who has gone through the Mysteries; he knows the source and end of life.
