Paradox is not Contradiction

"It is not a logical contradiction which makes it a paradox but the fact that it transcends all human expectations and possibilities. It breaks into the context of experience or reality, but it cannot be derived from it. The acceptance of this paradox is not the acceptance of the absurd, but it is the state of being grasped by the power of that which breaks into our experience from above it" (Paul Tillich, from "Systematic Theology, Vol. 1; pp. 57).
