The Inexhaustible Goodness Of God

Nothing supplies, nor fills, nor satisfies the desire of man on this side of God. Every man has something to love and desire till he determine it in God; because God only has, as they render Dyonisius the Areopagite, an inexhaustible goodness; a sea that no land can suck in, a land that no sea can swallow up, a forest that no fire can waste, a fire that no water can quench.
—John Donne, “Sermon XVII: Preached in Lent,” in Eighty Sermons Preached by that Learned and Reverend Divine John Donne, 167-68. (GBks)
