Just as all motion is from an unmovable cause, so everything divisible is from an indivisible cause. However, this visible, corporeal world is, assuredly, of a divisible nature, since what is corporeal is divisible. Therefore, this world is from an earlier, indivisible Cause.More Nicholas Cusa quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Therefore, in the Beginning, which is Truth, all things are Eternal Truth itselfMore Nicholas Cusa quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Number, in consequence, includes all things that are capable of comparison. It is not then in quantity only that number produces proportion; it produces it in all things that are capable of agreement and differences in any way at all, whether substantially or accidentally.More Nicholas Cusa quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There will be a machina mundi whose centre, so to speak, is everywhere, whose circumference is nowhere, for God is its circumference and centre and He is everywhere and nowhere.More Nicholas Cusa quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If, therefore, man has come into the world to search for God and, if he has found Him, to adhere to Him and to find repose in adhering to Him-man cannot search for Him and attain Him in this sensible and corporeal world, since God is spirit rather than body, and cannot be attained in intellectual abstraction, since one is able to conceive nothing similar to God, as he asserts-how can one, therefore, search for Him in order to find Him?More Nicholas Cusa quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
