All mankind is of one author and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book but translated into a better language; and every chapter must be so translated;
God employs several translators; some pieces are translated by age, some by sickness, some by war, some by justice;
but God's hand is in every translation; and his hand shall bind up all our scattered leaves again for that library where every book shall
Be open to one another.
John Donne (1572-1631)
English writer and poet
We talked of the beauty of the world of God's and of the great mystery of it.
Every blade of grass, every insect, ant, and golden bee, all so amazingly know their path;
though they have not intelligence, they bear witness to the mystery of God and continually accomplish it themselves.
Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881)
Russian writer and mystic
