Apocryphal Spurious Quotes from Antiquity?

(Love Poems From God: Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West by Daniel Ladinsky)

How is it they live for eons in such harmony – the billions of stars –

when most men can barely go a minute without declaring war in their mind against someone they know.

There are wars where no one marches with a flag, though that does not keep casualties from mounting.

Our hearts irrigate this earth.

We are fields before each other.

How can we live in harmony?

First we need to know: we are all madly in love with the same God.

– attributed to St. Thomas Aquinas

Love Poems from God : Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West ISBN 0-14-219612-6

If this author is intentionally falsifying the writings of antiquity, then he should be publicly censored,… it should reach the headlines in some fashion. The world must be reminded that scholars of antiquity are guardians of our proper understanding of the past and our heritage.

IF Mr. Ladinsky can provide us with a source and the original text, then we must have it. IF however it is the case that this poem is some hoax, then the penalty should be as serious as plagiarism or misappropriation of intellectual property, since it is a willful misrepresentation of the thoughts of an author whom the Roman Catholic Church has offered as a model for Roman Catholic intellectuals to emulate.
