fire consumes them.
Jewish proverb

To know the mighty works of God, to comprehend His wisdom and majesty and power; to
appreciate, in degree, the wonderful workings of His laws, surely all this must be a pleasing
and acceptable mode of worship to the Most High, to whom ignorance cannot be more
grateful than knowledge.
Copernicus

What did you do with the time and talents i gave you? God's question.

only choice is how.

Nothing is more ancient than God, for He was never created; nothing more beautiful than the
world, it is the work of that same God; nothing more active than thought, for it flies over the
whole universe; nothing stronger than necessity, for all must submit to it.
Thales of Miletus

Trust in God and put your shoulder to the wheel.
Polish proverb

The Bible is one of the greatest blessings bestowed by God on the children of men. It has God
for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture for its matter. It is all pure,
all sincere; nothing too much; nothing wanting.
John Locke

If only God would give me some clear sign. Like making a large deposit in my name at a
Swiss Bank.
Woody Allen

All that we call human history - money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires,
slavery – is the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will
make him happy.
C. S. Lewis

Russian proverb

Mexican proverb

It is God who cures, and the physician gets the money.
Chilean proverb

The idea that God is an oversized white male with a flowing beard who sits in the sky and
tallies the fall of every sparrow is ludicrous. But if by God one means the set of physical laws
that govern the universe, then clearly there is such a God. This God is emotionally
unsatisfying... it does not make much sense to pray to the law of gravity.
Carl Sagan

Not only is there no God, but try getting a plumber on weekends.
Woody Allen

No one makes contracts with God.
Russian proverb

Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and
listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.
Mother Teresa

Hippocrates

When the solution is simple, God is answering.
Albert Einstein

Nature is all the body of God we mortals will ever see.
Frank Lloyd Wright
