I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.
A man may imagine things that are false, but he can only understand things that are true, for if the things be false, the apprehension of them is not understanding.
The system of revealed truth which this Book contains is like that of the universe, concealed from common observation yet...the centuries have established its Divine origin.
Truth is ever to be found in the simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.
To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me.
Truth is ever to be found in simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.
