“God knows everything that passes in our inmost souls better than we do ourselves:  he reads our most secret thoughts:  all the cogitations of our hearts pass in review before him; and he is as perfectly and entirely employed in the scrutiny of the thoughts and actions of an individual, as in the regulation of the most important concerns of the universe.”  (Henry Kirke White;  1785-1806)
