"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

“Marvelous is the profundity of Thy Scriptures. Their surface lies before us, flattering us as we flatter children. But marvelous is their profundity, O my God, marvelous is their profundity. To gaze into it is a shuddering, the shudder of awe, the shudder of love. I hate its enemies mightily: O, if Thou wouldst slay them with a two-edged sword, that it might have no enemies. I should love them to die to themselves that they might live to Thee.”

-Augustine
