closer to him for that reason.
I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me, He can work through anyone.
St. Francis of Assisi
So Einstein was wrong when he said, "God does not play dice." Consideration of black holes
suggests, not only that God does play dice, but that he sometimes confuses us by throwing
them where they can't be seen.
The religion that is afraid of science dishonors God and commits suicide.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
And God said: "Let there be Satan, so people don't blame everything on me. And let there be
lawyers, so people don't blame everything on Satan."

They vex Israel instead.
If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him.
There is one moral duty that moralists underrate almost criminally - the duty to enjoy God's
God created war so that Americans would learn geography.
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It
cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
When God made man she was practicing.
Rita Mae Brown
The fewer our wants the more we resemble the gods.
The idea of God is a form of the idea of the infinite. As long as the mystery of the infinite
weighs on human thought, temples will be erected for the worship of the infinite, whether
God is called Brahma, Allah, Jehovah, or Jesus; and on the pavement of these temples, men
will be seen kneeling, prostrated, annihilated by the thought of the infinite.
Men don't get cellulite. God might just be a man.
Lord, make me see thy glory in every place.

require drums to be beaten into our ears before we should wake from our trance and hear the
warning and see that to lose oneself in all is the only way to find oneself.
God gives to those who get up early.
Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man.

In a day, sometimes I feel so much love for the world, I think my heart is bursting. Sometimes,
I feel so scared, I want to shrink myself even further. I think that's what happened to us gods
and goddesses. Like the dinosaurs, we realized that it's too dangerous to be so large. So we
kept shrinking ourselves to what we are now. We might get even smaller. I see the sign in the
engineers making smaller gadgets, smaller and smaller. Pretty soon, our fingers will be too large
to operate them. So what are we doing? I trust in the human wisdom. We are incredibly
intelligent beings. So we might know something without thinking that we know... Well, even my
best friend didn't know until now that I was thinking of crazy things like this.
An atheist is one who hopes the Lord will do nothing to disturb his disbelief.
Franklin P. Jones

God gave you a gift of 86.400 seconds today. Have you used one to say thank you?
William Arthur Ward
I don't need to go to church. I respect churches because of the sacredness that's been put
on them over the years by people who do believe. But I think a lot of bad things have
happened in the name of the church and in the name of Christ. Therefore I shy away from
church, and as Donovan once said, "I go to my own church in my own temple once a day."
We're all God. I'm not a god or the God, but we're all God and we're all potentially divine - and
potentially evil. We all have everything within us and the Kingdom of Heaven is nigh and within
us, and if you look hard enough you'll see it.
Science brings men nearer to God.
If the average man is made in God's image, then such a man as Beethoven or Aristotle is
plainly superior to God.
H. L. Mencken
To hate man and love God seems to be the sum of all creeds.
Robert G. Ingersoll
If any man cannot feel the power of God when he looks upon the stars, then I doubt whether
he is capable of any feeling at all.
God does not like the lying tongue.
