After reading all that has been written, and after thinking all that can be thought on the

that which can be the least easily distinguished from the most superficial sentiment.

Do you think God likes to be around people that are happy or people that are miserable? It's
not hard to tell. Just think about it by imagining that you're God. You created the heavens
and earth so that you can play and experience yourself, and now you're dropping down to
check on your humans. So God asks the first human He sees,

"How are you doing?"

The human says, "What do you mean, how am I doing?"

"Well do you like it here?"

"No, I don't like it here."

"Why not? What' wrong?"

"That tree is bent in five places; I want it to be straight. This person went out with somebody
else, and that person ran up a hundred-dollar phone bill. This person has a nicer car than mine
and that person dresses funny. It's just terrible. Plus my nose is too big, my ears are too small,
and my toes are weird. I'm not happy with it. I don't like any of it."

So God says, "Well, how about the animals?"

"The animals? The ants and mosquitoes bite you; it's a terrible thing. I can't go out at night
because there are all these animals out there. They howl and poop all over the place, and I just
don't like it."

Do you think God likes listening to this? He says, "What do you think - I'm a complaint
department?" Then He goes and visits somebody else, and again, He asks,

"How are you doing?"

This person says, "I'm ecstatic."

God says, "Wow! Well, how do you like things?"

"They're beautiful. Everything I look at just creates waves of joy inside me. I look at that tree
bent; it just blows me away. The ant comes and bites me, and it's just so amazing that a tiny
ant could be so brave enough to bite a giant like me!"
Michael A. Singer

Mother is the word for God on the hearts and lips of all little children.
William Makepeace Thackeray

Why did God make women so beautiful and man with such a loving heart?

The happiest man is he who brings forth the highest and the best in him. God is the highest
and best in you. Express more of God's love, light, truth, and beauty, and you will become
one of the happiest persons in the world today.
Joseph Murphy

Fran Lebowitz

When I held that gun in my hand, I felt a surge of power. Like God must feel when he's
holding a gun.

It is said that God has created man in his own image. But it may be that humankind has
created God in the image of humankind.

To do all that one is able to do, is to be a man; to do all that one would like to do, would be
to be a god.
Napoleon Bonaparte

The charitable give out at the door and God puts in at the window.
English proverb

I believe God is managing affairs and that He doesn't need any advice from me. With God in
charge, I believe everything will work out for the best in the end. So what is there to worry
Henry Ford
