'Put all the beauty of ten thousand worlds of paradise, like the Garden of Eden, in one. Put all trees, all flowers, all smells, all colours, all tastes, all joys, all sweetness, all loveliness, in one. Oh, what a fair and excellent thing would that be! And yet it would be less to that fair and dearest Well-beloved, Christ, than one drop of rain to the whole seas, rivers, lakes and fountains of ten thousands earths.' 
Samuel Rutherford in Mark Jones, Knowing Christ, p.3.
