    "What can I see, O God, in Thy creation, but miracles of wonders? Thou madest something of nothing, and of that something all things. Thou, which wast without a beginning, gavest a beginning to time. It is the praise of us men, if, when we have matter, we can give fashion: Thou gavest a being to that matter, and a glory to that form. If we can finish but a slight and imperfect matter according to a former pattern, it is the height of our skill: but to begin that which was, whereof there was no example, whereto there was no inclination, wherein there was no possibility of that which it should be, is proper only to such power as Thine: the infinite power of an infinite Creator!"

    - Bishop Joseph Hall - Contemplations - Book1, pg 1.
