C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.


Nothing truly precious swims helplessly in the great wake of God’s clear method, but every part of the man can be, and therefore strives to be, abreast of the other. The mountains follow the earth, the air has clasped the mountains, and daylight and starlight stream forward entangled in the air. Clutching for dear life to each other, all solid and tenuous things describe the great invariable motion, and God is in the manifoldness, drenching it with uniformity.

John Weiss.
