In Shakespeare's "As You Like It" a contemplative man speaks of finding

"... tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything."

In the first chapter of Genesis, the first book in the Holy Bible, the record of creation is punctuated by repeated assertions that "God saw that it was good;" and in the last verse we read, "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, says (p. 286): "In the Saxon and twenty other tongues good is the term for God. The Scriptures declare all that He made to be good, like Himself,—good in Principle and in idea. Therefore the spiritual universe is good, and reflects God as He is."
