Works of St. Anselm, tr. by Sidney Norton Deane, , at sacred-texts.com
God is the very life whereby he lives; and so of other like attributes.
BUT undoubtedly, whatever thou art, thou art through nothing else than thyself. Therefore, thou art the very life whereby thou livest; and the wisdom wherewith thou art wise; and the very goodness whereby thou art good to the righteous and the wicked; and so of other like attributes.
