Existence Quotes

A god who is both self-sufficient and content to remain so could not interest us enough to raise the question of his existence.

Wystan Hugh Auden

Thought is not essential to existence nor its cause, but it is an instrument for becoming; I become what I see in myself. All that thought suggests to me, I can do; all that thought reveals in me, I can become. This should be man's unshakable faith in himself, because God dwells in him.

Sri Aurobindo

Commitment is the equivalent of faith when the living God has been supplanted by self-provided values. It is Pascals wager, no longer on Gods existence but on ones capacity to believe in oneself and the goals one has set for oneself.

Allan David Bloom

Marx denied the existence of God but turned over all His functions to History, which is inevitably directed to a goal fulfilling of man and which takes the place of Providence. One might as well be a Christian if one is so naive.

Allan David Bloom
