Yes, from the mountain of eternity we shall look down, and behold the whole plain spread before us. Down here we get lost and confused in the devious valleys that run off from the roots of the hills everywhere, and we cannot make out where the streams are going, and what there is behind that low shoulder of the hill yonder. But when we get to the summit peak and look down, it will all shape itself into one consistent whole, and we shall see it all at once.Thomas Boston (1676-1732) Scottish clergyman
In Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895). Note that all online transcriptions of this quotation show "rdots" rather than "roots" (see image in the Source).
