“When I think of the long list of problems of which I have in vain tried to find the solution, and think of the honours that have nevertheless been bestowed upon me, I understand with deep thankfulness to Whom all this is due: to the Lord Who has steered my steps over the years, and Who has been my refuge in the superior matters which no science can ever reach.”
