• I speak not fiction, but what is certain and most true.
• What is below is like that which is above, and what is above is like that which is below for performing the miracle of one thing.
• And as all things were produced from one by the Meditation of one, so all things are produced from this one thing by adaptation.
• Its father is the Sun, its mother was the Moon. The wind carried it in its belly, its nurse is the earth.
• It is the cause of all perfection throughout the whole world.
• Its power is perfect if it be changed into the earth.
• Separate the earth from the fire, the subtle from the gross, gently and with judgement.
• It ascends from earth to heaven and descends again to earth; thus you will possess the glory of the whole World, and all obscurity will fly away.
• This thing is the fortitude of all fortitude, because it overcomes all subtle things, and penetrates every solid thing.
• Thus were all things created.
• Thence proceeds wonderful adaptations which are produced in this way.
• Therefore am I called Hermes Trismegistus, possessing the three parts of the philosophy of the whole World.
• What I had to say concerning the operation of the Sun is complete.
