- "Who knows for certain?Who shall here declare it?Whence was it born, whence came creation?The gods are later thanthis world's formation;Who then can know the origins of the world?None knows whence creation arose;And whether he has or has not made it;He who surveys it from the lofty skies.Only he knows-or perhaps he knows not.” - “Truth is one, but the wise men know it as many; God is one, but we can approach Him in many ways.” - "Lord of creation! no one other than theepervades all these that have come into being.May that be ours for which our prayers rise,may we be masters of many treasures!"
