Spring bottles

This is an art-journal page I made recently.  Because of the spiral in the journal, some of the image isn’t flat on the scanner, resulting in a lack of sharpness.

sp2When I transcribed the quote, I wrote it as

“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one who is without faith, no explanation is possible.” – Thomas Aquinas

but it is really

“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.” – Thomas Aquinas

Someone on a Facebook page said that it is really from St. Ignatius of Loyola – that there is a bronze bust of St. Ignatius at the Casa Dom Inacio in Brazil with this quote on it. However, all the indications online say it is from Aquinas.
