    "The person that has been saved is one who has not known about things merely intellectually, but one who is personally involved with the rational faculty as it exists within him. He has grasped the images that change in every situation as though they had become simple and one. For then he is saved who can pass through them all; he becomes them all. Whenever he wishes, he again parts from all these matters and withdraws into himself; for he becomes divine, having withdrawn into god."

    This line in particular is one of my favorites from the Sethian corpus. Personally, I feel like it works as a summary of the whole of the work.
