“And now consider Him, who is eternally unchangeable — and this human heart! O this human heart, what is not hidden in your secret recesses, unknown to others — and that is the least of it — but sometimes almost unknown to the individual himself! When a man has lived a few years it is almost as if it were a burial-plot, this human heart!”

“How depressing and wearisome to the spirit that all things are corruptible, that men are changeable, you, my hearer, and I! How sad that change is so often for the worse!… [But] the text speaks of the opposite, of the changelessness of God. The spirit of the text is unmixed joy and gladness. …no change touches Him, not even the shadow of a change; in unaltered clearness He, the father of lights, remains eternally unchanged…. With us men it is not so…. This thought is terrifying, all fear and trembling.”

“Imagine a solitary wayfarer, a desert wanderer. Almost burned by the heat of the sun, languishing with thirst, he finds a spring. O refreshing coolness! Now God be praised, he says — and yet it was merely a spring he found; what then must not he say who found God!”
