Excerpts from Paradise
“The One who turned His compass to mark the world’s confines, and in them to set so many things concealed
and things revealed,
could not imprint His power into all the universe without His Word remaining in infinite excess of such a vessel.
In proof of this, the first proud being, he who was the highest of all creations, fell –
unripe, because he did not wait for light.”
“The sword that strikes from Heaven’s height is neither hasty nor slow, except as it appears to him who waits for it – who longs or fears.”
