"We often refer to wise discoveries as gold, as the Lord says, speaking through the Prophet:
'I gave to them gold and silver.' [Hosea 2:8]
Daniel says of the wise: 'If you sleep among the midst of the lots, you shall be as the wings of the dove
covered with silver and the hinder parts of her back like to gold.' [Ps 67:14]
In this way one who puts his trust in the aid of the Old and New Testament can by resourceful inquiry
attain the inmost secrets of the Wisdom of God."
-Saint Ambrose, Doctor Universalis
