Scougal = WOW!

"Shall we doat on the scattered pieces of a rude and imperfect picture, and never be affected with the original beauty? This were an accountable stupidity and blindness. Whatever we find lovely in a friend, or in a saint, ought not to engross, but to elevate our affections: we should conclude with ourselves, that if there be so much sweetness in a drop, there must be infinitely more in the fountain; if there be so much splendor in a ray, what must the sun be in its glory?"
Henry Scougal "The Life of God in the Soul of Man"

In this "drop" it takes Almighty God to view any sweetness, but if you look really close you might glimpse the glow of the Lamb.
