Michael Foster in Mystery and Philosophy says the following:
"it is characteristic of the analytical philosopher to treat all mysteries as puzzles. For him there are problems, which the scientist solves, and puzzles, which the philosopher resolves. But for the Christian theologian there must be a third thing also, namely, mysteries, which remain mysterious even when understood, because, though understood, they exceed our comprehension."(p.19)
I brought the quote to my local tattoo artist but he said it was too lengthy.
