Note the similarity to Jesus' "Seek ye first the kingdom of heaven and all these things shall be added" in The Wisdom of Solomon: "I preferred Wisdom before sceptres and thrones, and esteemed riches nothing in comparison with her . . . All good things together came to me with her, and innumerable riches in her hands. . . . she was the mother of them. If riches be a possession to be desired in this life, what is richer than wisdom that worketh all things?" The quest of philosophic wisdom is also the quest of the kingdom of heaven.
