15. How He is greater than can be thought

Therefore, Lord, not only are You that than which a greater cannot be thought, but You are also something greater than can be thought. For since it is possible to think that there is such a one, then, if You are not this same being something greater than You could be thought–which cannot be.

Anselm, Proslogion, 15.1
