You are not much different from cattle, except that you have intelligence: so do not glory in anything else. Do you claim to be strong? You will be beaten by beasts. Do you claim speed? Flies are faster. Do you claim beauty? What great beauty there is in a peafowl’s feathers! How are you better, then, than these? By image of God. And where is God’s image? In your mind, in your intellect!
