Notice: Hello,

My question is regarding 17th c. poet, Angelus Silesius. I'm intrigued with his writings. However, though being German born, have any of his works been transcribed to Latin? I'm particularly interested in a quote:

'I am like God and God like me. I am as large as God, he is as small as I. He cannot above me nor I beneath him be'.

Its translations to English from German vary considerably. What would be the appropriate Latin translation?
