(26) Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the
cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." (27) And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He
created him; male and female He created them. (28) And God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth,
and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction."
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God. (2) He was in the beginning with God. (3)
All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came
into being that has come into being. (4) In Him was life,
and the life was the light of men... (14) And the Word
became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory
as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
—John 1: 1-4, 14
(15) And He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born
of all creation. (16) For by Him all things were created,
both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether
thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities; all things have
been created by Him and for Him. (17) And He is before
all things, and in Him all things hold together. (18) He
is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the
first-born from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have
first place in everything. (19) For it was the Father's
good pleasure for all the fulness to dwell in Him, (20)
and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made
peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether
things on earth or things in heaven.
"For when there is a question as to whether a man is good, one does not
ask what he believes, or what he hopes, but what he loves. For the
man who loves aright no doubt believes and hopes aright...
—St. Augustine, The Enchiridion §117
"My love is my weight: wherever I go my love is what brings me there."
—St. Augustine, Confessions 13.9
"But there are some people, nevertheless—and I am one of them—who
think that the most practical and important thing about a man is
still his view of the universe. We think that for a landlady considering
a lodger, it is important to know his income, but still more important
to know his philosophy. We think that for a general about to fight
an enemy, it is important to know the enemy's numbers, but
still more important to know the enemy's philosophy. We think
the question is not whether the theory of the cosmos affects matters,
but whether, in the long run, anything else affects them."
—G. K. Chesterton, Heretics
"We must now go back a bit and explain what the whole scene [of the
founding of Narnia by Aslan] had looked like from Uncle Andrew's
point of view. It has not made at all the same impression on him
as on the Cabby and the children. For what you see and hear depends
a good deal on where you are standing: it also depends on what sort
of person you are."
—C. S. Lewis, The Magician"s Nephew
"Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life." —Proverbs 4:23
"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential
is invisible to the eye."
—Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
"The heart of man is his worst part before it is regenerated, and the
best afterward; it is the seat of principles, and the foundation
of actions. The eye of God is, and the eye of the Christian ought
to be, principally fixed upon it."
—John Flavel, Keeping the Heart
