If quotes were clouds this one would be a cumulonimbus

Heaven does not laugh loud but it laughs last — when all the world will laugh in its light. It is a smile more immeasurable than the ocean's and more deep; it is an irony gentler and more pleasant than the bending skies, the irony of a long love and the play of its sure mastery; it is the smile of the holy in its silent omnipotent mercy.
P. T. Forsyth, The Justification of God: Lectures for War-Time on a Christian Theodicy (London: Independent, 1957), p. 206.

"There are more conversions on the other side than on this."

Truly the "smile of the holy in its silent omnipotent mercy"!
