How’s this for an ending?

There remains no better way of expressing this fundamental truth of the transcendence of God than the traditional one: that God is his esse, whereas the esse of creatures is received. Creatures do not differ from God. God is not what is left over when you remove creatures. God and creatures cannot be thought of together, or even apart. It is simply that what is not Him is His.

~ God and Evil, 129
