Happy the man who meditates on wisdom,
and reflects on knowledge.
She will nourish him with the bread of understanding,
and give him the water of learning to drink.
He will lean upon her and not fall,
he will trust in her and not be put to shame.
She will exalt him above his fellows;
in the assembly she will make him eloquent.
Joy and gladness he will find,
en everlasting name inherit.
- Sirach, 14:22, 15:3-6, Magnificat, November 2012
