He knows God rightly who knows Him everywhere.
More Quotes from Meister Eckhart:To be sure, this requires effort and love, a careful cultivation of the spiritual life, and a watchful, honest, active oversight of all one's mental attitudes towards things and people.

He must learn to penetrate things and find God there, to get a strong impression of God firmly fixed on his mind.
