First and Second Good

The first good, because it is, is good in virtue of the fact that it is. But a second good, because it flowed from that whose being itself is good, is itself also good. But the being itself of all things flows from that which is the first good and which is such that it is properly said to be good in virtue of the fact that it is.

Boethius, De Hebdomadibus (Scott Macdonald, tr.)
