God quotes

Reverence: the spiritual attitude of a man to a god and a dog to a man.

- Ambrose Bierce

There is little hope that we shall learn the lessons God is for ever teaching us in the events of life till we get rid of our secret Atheism, till we give up the notion that God only visits now and then to disorder and destroy His own handiwork, and take back the old scriptural notion that God is visiting all day long for ever, to give order and life to His own work, to set it right where it goes wrong, and re-create it whenever it decays.

- Water of Life Sermons. 1866.

PANTHEISM, n. The doctrine that everything is God, in contradistinction to the doctrine that God is everything.

- Ambrose Bierce

You have to believe in God before you can say there are things that man was not meant to know. I don't think there's anything man wasn't meant to know. There are just some stupid things that people shouldn't do.

- Cronenberg, David

What if we chose the wrong religion? Each week we just make God madder and madder.

- Matt Groening

It is the quality of our work which will please God and not the quantity.

- Mahatma Gandhi

Conceit is God's gift to little men.

- Bruce Barton

We talk of education now. Are we more educated than were the ancient Greeks? Do we know anything about education, physical, intellectual, aesthetic (religious education in our sense of the word of course they had none), of which they have not taught us at least the rudiments? Are there not some branches of education which they perfected once and for ever, leaving us northern barbarians to follow or not to follow their example? To produce health, that is, harmony and sympathy, proportion and grace, in every faculty of mind and body--that was their notion of education. Ah! the waste of health and strength in the young! The waste, too, of anxiety and misery in those who love and tend them! How much of it might be saved by a little rational education in those laws of nature which are the will of God about the welfare of our bodies, and which, therefore, we are as much bound to know and to obey as we are bound to know and to obey the spiritual laws whereon depend the welfare of our souls.

- Lecture on Thrift. 1869.

That glorious word know--it is God's attribute, and includes in itself all others. Love, truth--all are parts of that awful power of knowing at a single glance, from and to all eternity, what a thing is in its essence, its properties, and its relations to the whole universe through all Time. I feel awestruck whenever I see that word used rightly, and I never, if I can remember, use it myself of myself.

- Letters and Memories. 1842.

Now there is fame! Of all -- hunger, misery, the incomprehension by the public -- fame is by far the worst. It is the castigation of God by the artist. It is sad. It is true.

- Picasso, Pablo

In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms. The first is freedom of speech and expression--everywhere in the world. The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way--everywhere in the world. The third is freedom from want--which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants--everywhere in the world. The fourth is freedom from fear--which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression gainst any neighbor--anywhere in the world.

- Roosevelt, Franklin D.

Ours is an abiding faith in the cause of human freedom. We know it is God's cause.

- Dewey, Thomas E.

It is not the rich man you should properly call happy, but him who knows how to use with wisdom the blessings of the gods, to endure hard poverty, and who fears dishonor worse than death, and is not afraid to die for cherished friends or fatherland.

- Horace

When we take one step toward to God, he takes seven steps toward us.

- Proverb, Indian

A solitude is the audience-chamber of God.

- Landor, Walter Savage

The vague and tenuous hope that God is too kind to punish the ungodly has become a deadly opiate for the consciences of millions.

- Tozer, A. W.

My faith is the grand drama of my life. I'm a believer, so I sing words of God to those who have no faith. I give bird songs to those who dwell in cities and have never heard them, make rhythms for those who know only military marches or jazz, and paint colors for those who see none.

- Messiaen, Olivier

You enter a state of controlled passivity, you relax your grip and accept that even if your declared intention is to justify the ways of God to man, you might end up interesting your readers rather more in Satan.

- Mcewan, Ian

God does notice us, and He watches over us. But it is usually through another person that he meets our needs.

- Kimball, Spencer W.

Reason is like an officer when the king appears. The officer then loses his power and hides himself. Reason is the shadow cast by God; Go is the sun.

- Rumi, Jalal-Uddin
