“According to Gregory, Scripture is a river, in which a lamb wades and an elephant floats. It is God’s wisdom, which makes the wise men of this world fools; and it is the prince of this world who makes children eloquent and eloquent people like children. Not he is the best, who understands everything or even who has no shortcomings, but he who loves the most, like Psalm 1:2 says: “Happy is the man, who loves and meditates on the Law of the Lord.” It would be more than sufficient, if this wisdom would please us, if this meditated wisdom would be loved and held day and night.”
