Note on Augustine’s Confessions Bk. 1

When we fill a bottle with water, the water completely fills the bottle in its every contour, but only because the liquid conforms to the rigid attributes of the bottle.  God is the liquid filling every contour, but it is only because the container in which he exists conforms to his attributes.
