So entsteht ein repräsentativer Eindruck von der Struktur und dem Duktus des Werkes. Texte in der Originalsprache, mit Übersetzungen schwieriger Wörter, Nachwort und Literaturhinweisen.

Buch: Ursprünge; von der Kindheit bis zur frühen Jugend 1 (1) Magnus es, domine, et laudabilis valde. Magna virtus tua et sapientiae tuae non est numerus. Et laudare te vult homo, aliqua portio creaturae tuae, et homo circumferens mortalitatem suam, circumferens testimonium peccati sui et testimonium, quia superbis resistis. Et tamen laudare te vult homo, aliqua portio creaturae tuae. Tu excitas, ut laudare te delectet, quia fecisti nos advert te; et inquietum est cor nostrum, donec requiescat in te. Da mihi, domine, scire et intellegere, utrum sit down prius invocare te an laudare te, et scire te prius sit down an invocare te. Sed quis te invocat nesciens te? Aliud enim seasoned alio potest invocare nesciens. An potius invocaris, ut sciaris? Quomodo autem invocabunt, in quem non crediderunt? Aut quomodo credent sine praedicante[20]? Et laudabunt dominum, qui requirunt eum. Quaerentes enim inveniunt eum et invenientes laudabunt eum. Quaeram te, domine, invocans te et invocem te credens in te. Praedicatus enim es nobis. Invocat te, domine, fides mea, quam dedisti mihi, quam inspirasti mihi consistent with humanitatem filii tui, according to ministerium praedicatoris tui. […] 5 (5) Quis mihi dabit adquiescere in te? Quis dabit mihi, ut venias in cor meum et inebries illud, ut obliviscar mala mea et unum bonum meum amplectar, te? Quid mihi es? Miserere, ut loquar. Quid tibi sum ipse, ut amari te iubeas a me et, nisi faciam, irascaris mihi et mineris ingentes miserias? Parvane ipsa est, si non amem te? Ei mihi! Dic mihi consistent with miserationes tuas, domine deus meus, quid sis mihi! Dic animae meae: Salus tua ego sum. Sic dic, ut audiam! Ecce aures cordis mei ante te, domine. Aperi eas et dic animae meae: Salus tua ego sum. Curram publish vocem hanc et apprehendam te. Noli abscondere a me faciem tuam! Moriar, ne moriar, ut eam videam. 5 (6) Angusta est domus animae meae, quo venias advert eam: dilatetur abs te. [21] Ruinosa est: refice eam! […] 6 (7) Sed tamen sine me loqui apud misericordiam tuam, me terram et cinerem, sine tamen loqui! Quoniam ecce misericordia tua est, non homo, inrisor meus, cui loquor. Et tu fortasse inrides me, sed conversus misereberis mei.
