|Hope you enjoy the following quotes written by Origen:
"For whatever be the knowledge which we are able to obtain of God, either
by perception or reflection, we must of necessity believe that He is by
many degrees far better than what we perceive Him to be."
"For if the mystery concealed of old is made manifest to the Apostles
through the prophetic writings, and if the prophets, being wise men, understood
what proceeded from their own mouths, then the prophets knew what was made
manifest to the Apostles."
"Having refuted, then, as well as we could, every notion which might
suggest that we were to think of God as in any degree corporeal, we go
on to say that, according to strict truth, God is incomprehensible, and
incapable of being measured."
"If all things were made through Him, clearly so must the splendid revelations
have been which were made to the fathers and prophets, and became to them
the symbols of the sacred mysteries of religion."
"Now our whole activity is devoted to God, and our whole life, since
we are bent on progress in divine things."
"Now the true soldiers of Christ must always be prepared to do battle
for the truth, and must never, so far as lies with them, allow false convictions
to creep in."
"The physical voice we use in prayer need not be great nor startling;
even should we not lift up any great cry or shout, God will yet hear us."
"The power of choosing good and evil is within the reach of all."
"Then, in the next place, we must know that every being which is endowed
with reason, and transgresses its statutes and limitations, is undoubtedly
involved in sin by swerving from rectitude and justice."
"This also is a part of the Church's teaching, that the world was made
and took its beginning at a certain time, and is to be destroyed on account
of its wickedness."
"This also is a part of the teaching of the Church, that there are certain
angels of God, and certain good influences, which are His servants in accomplishing
the salvation of men."
"This opinion, however, is held by most, that the devil was an angel,
and that, having become an apostate, he induced as many of the angels as
possible to fall away with himself, and these up to the present time are
called his angels."
"To him who, though by no means near the end, is yet advancing, He is
the way; to him who has put off all that is dead He is the life."
"We are obliged, therefore, to say that whoever speaks that which is
foreign to religion is using many words, while he who speaks the words
of truth, even should he go over the whole field and omit nothing, is always
speaking the one word."
"We must believe what is good and true about the prophets, that they
were sages, that they did understand what proceeded from their mouths,
and that they bore prudence on their lips."
"When a house is being built which is to be made as strong as possible,
the building takes place in fine weather and in calm, so that nothing may
hinder the structure from acquiring the needed solidity."
"When Jesus then is with the multitudes, He is not in His house, for the multitudes are outside of the house, and it is an act which springs from His love of men to leave the house and to go away to those who are not able to come to Him."
