Descartes, Unexpected

“The mathematical truths which you call eternal have been laid down by God and depend on him entirely no less than the rest of his creatures…In general we can assert that God can do everything that is beyond our grasp but not that he cannot do what is beyond our grasp. It would be rash to think that our imagination reaches as far as his power.”
