You Cannot Find God in This Box

If God does exist, He is related to the universe more as an author is related to a play than as one object in the universe is related to another.
If God created the universe, He created space-time, which is to the universe as the metre is to a poem or the key is to music.
To look for Him as one item within the framework which He Himself invented is nonsensical.
  • CS Lewis,  from "The Seeing Eye”

A Thought - мысль - un pensamiento - wazo - ein Gedanke

What if this present were the world's last night
Mark in my heart, O soul, where thou dost dwell...

Что если сегодня было вчера мира?
имейте внимание к моему сердцу, душу, чему вы ...

¿Qué si el hoy era el ayer por la noche del mundo?
tenga atención a mi corazón, alma, qué usted cree...

Nini kama sasa huyu wa mwisho wa dunia usiku?
Katika moyo wangu, Ee nafsi, ambapo wewe makao
Picha ya Kristo aliyesulubiwa…

Was, wenn heutiger Tag das gestern Abend der Welt waren?
haben Sie Aufmerksamkeit zu meinem Herzen, Seele, was Sie glauben...
  • John Donne, from Holy Sonnet XIII

Money is merely an object.

"Among the rich you will never find a really generous man even by accident. They may give their money away, but they will never give themselves away; they are egotistic, secretive, dry as old bones. To be smart enough to get all that money you must be dull enough to want it."
(G.K. Chesterton)
