God Quotes

God is by definition the holder of all possible knowledge, it would be impossible for him to have faith in anything. Faith, then, is built upon ignorance and hope.

Stephen Valentine Patrick William Allen

The single harmony produced by all the heavenly bodies singing and dancing together springs from one source and ends by achieving one purpose, and has rightly bestowed the name not of \\\"disordered\\\" but of \\\"ordered universe\\\" upon the whole.

Aristotle

Man proposes, and God disposes.

Ludovico Ariosto

It is not by change of place that we can come nearer to Him who is in every place, but by the cultivation of pure desires and virtuous habits.

St. Augustine of Hippo

He who created you without you will not justify you without you.

St. Augustine of Hippo

If God can be found through the medium of any drug, God is not worthy of being God.

Meher Baba

If the concept of God has any validity or any use, it can only be to make us larger, freer, and more loving. If God cannot do this, then it is time we got rid of Him.

James Baldwin

I conceive of God, in fact, as a means of liberation and not a means to control others.

James Baldwin

All religions, with their gods, their demigods, and their prophets, their messiahs and their saints, were created by the credulous fancy of men who had not attained the full development and full possession of their faculties. Consequently, the religious heaven is nothing but a mirage in which man, exalted by ignorance and faith, discovers his own image, but enlarged and reversed that is, divinized. The history of religion, of the birth, grandeur, and decline of the gods who have succeeded one another in human belief, is nothing, therefore, but the development of the collective intelligence and conscience of mankind.

Mikhail Alexandrovich Bakunin

God was a clever idea ... The human race came up with a winner there.

Orson Scott Card

God's merits are so transcendent that it is not surprising his faults should be in reasonable proportion.

Samuel Butler

Be an observer of providence; for God is showing you ever, by the way in which He leads you, whither He means to lead. Study your trials, your talents, the world's wants, and stand ready to serve God now, in whatever He brings to your hand.

Horace Bushnell
