"I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have
been only like a boy playing on the seashore, diverting myself in now and
then, finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst
the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."
- Isaac Newton (Brewster's, 'Memoirs of Newton')
"... the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who,
when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had
and bought it."
Lord I am diligently looking for the essence of your Word.
Leave me your words to understand clearly
and allow me find the great price of Your Kingdom.
