Some wisdom from Boethius

In his De consolatione philosophiœ, Roman philosopher-theologian Boethius wrote:

Then said [Philosophy], ‘Think you that this universe is guided only at random and by mere chance? or think you there is any rule of reason constituted in it?’

‘No, never would I think it could be so, nor believe that such sure motions could be made at random or by chance. I know that God, the founder of the universe, does overlook His work; nor ever may that day come which shall drive me to abandon this belief as untrue.’
