"It Was a Great Marvel That He Was in the Father without Knowing Him" is a dictum from the Gospel of Truth. It is also found on page 3 of The Anxiety of Influence.

It is a line from Valentinus.

More lines from, further cited in The Anxiety of Influence

"After he knew that he had fallen, outwards and downwards, away from the Fullness he tried to remember what the Fullness had been.

He did remember, but found he was silent, and could not tell the others.

He wanted to tell them that she leapt farthest forward and fell into a passion apart from his embrace.

She was in great agony, and would have been swallowed up by the sweetness had she not reached a limit, and stopped.

But the passion went on without her, and passed beyond the limit.

Sometimes he thought he was about to speak but the silence continued.

He wanted to say "strengthless and female fruit"."
