Quote 10 22

What do you appreciate in everything you see? Beauty, usefulness, some value, or energy that find in these things. Yet if you are enthralled with beauty, who is more beautiful than he who made them? If you prize usefulness, who is more useful than the Maker of them all? If you admire energy, who is more powerful than the Author of all things? So do not imitate those mute preachers, who praise the creature but remain silent about the Creator. Even the crowd of followers you have do not praise you that way when they celebrate your works.
