Evelyn Underhill, Mysticism - 11a (Crashaw bonus)
p. 65 (speaking of Dame Gertrude More): "The spirit of her little book is summed up in two epigrams: epigrams of which her contemporary, Crashaw, might have been proud. 'To give all for love is a most sweet bargain.' 'O let me love, or not live!'
"Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." --John 4:14~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I am about to do a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
and rivers in the desert.
- Isaiah 43:19~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~"And I heard a voice from heaven like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder; the voice I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps, and they sing a new song before the throne..." Rev. 14:2-3a~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~"With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. And you will say in that day: Give thanks to the Lord, for he has done gloriously; let this be known in all the earth. Shout aloud and sing for joy, O royal Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel." Isaiah 12:3-6
