Jonathan Edwards on the fullness of images in the world

"I expect by very ridicule and contempt to be called a man of a fruitful brain and copious fancy, but they are welcome to it. I am not ashamed to own that I believe that the whole universe, heaven and earth, air and seas, and the divine constitution and history of the holy Scriptures, be full of images of divine things, as full as language is of words; and that the multitudes of those things that I have mentioned are but a very small part of what is really intended to be signified and typified by those things."

-Jonathan Edwards (as quoted in The Supreme Harmony of All )
