Nothingness of Man

“My God! when I survey the infinite region of space, and see those magnificent spheres rolling through it all─ when I consider how vast is your universe─ so wide that an angel’s wing might flap throughout all eternity and never reach a boundary─ I marvel that you should look on insects so obscure as man. I have looked into my microscope and seen the short lived tiny insect on a leaf, and I have called him minute. I will not call him ‘tiny’ again─ compared with me, he is great, if I put myself in comparison with God. I am so little, that I shrink into nothingness when I behold the almightiness of Jehovah─ so little that the difference between the microscopic animal and man dwindles into nothing, when compared with the infinite chasm between God and man.”

─Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)
