Mystery and innocence are not akin.
      - Hosea Ballou

That great chain of causes, which, linking one to another, even to the throne of God Himself, can never be unraveled by any industry of ours.
      - Edmund Burke

Where there is mystery, it is generally supposed that there must also be evil.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Providence is a greater mystery than revelation.
      - Richard Cecil

There is no religion without mystery. God Himself is the great secret of Nature.
      - Francois August Rene de Chateaubriand, Vicomte de Chateaubriand

There is a profound charm in mystery.
      - Paul Chatfield (a/k/a Horace Smith)

A proper secrecy is the only mystery of able men; mystery is the only secrecy of weak and cunning ones.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope

We injure mysteries, which are matters of faith, by any attempt at explanation in order to make them matters of reason. Could they be explained, they would cease to be mysteries; and it has been well said that a thing is not necessarily against reason because it happens to be above it.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Were there no mysteries in the Bible, we should doubt its being the transcript of the Eternal Mind. The "mystery of godliness" adapts it to our ruined race. Those mysteries of the Bible are like the mountains of the world; they give grandeur to the landscape and fertility to the soil.
      - Joseph Dare

All is mystery; but he is a slave who will not struggle to penetrate the dark veil.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

Mystery is another name for our ignorance; if we were omniscient, all would be perfectly plain.
      - Tryon Edwards

One may say the eternal mystery of the world is its comprehensibility.
      - Albert Einstein, Physics and Reality

We live in the midst of infinite existence; and widely as we can see, and vastly as we have discovered, we have but crossed the threshold, we have but entered the vestibule of the Creator's temple. In this temple there is an everlasting worship of life, an anthem of many choruses, a hymn of incense that goes up forever.
      - Henry Giles

Mysteries are not necessarily miracles.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

A religion without its mysteries is a temple without a God.
      - Robert Hall

All things unrevealed belong to the kingdom of mystery.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

The mysterious is always attractive. People will always follow a vail.
      - Bede Jarrett, The House of Gold

Mystery hovers over all things here below.
      - Alphonse de Lamartine

The only mystery in life is why the kamikaze pilots wore helmets.
      - Al McGuire

The Bible tells me explicitly that Christ was God; and it tells me, as explicitly that Christ was man. It does not go on to state the modus or manner of the union. I stop, therefore, where the Bible stops. I bow before a God-man as my Mediator, but I own as inscrutable the mysteries of His person.
      - Henry Melvill

The mystery of the Bible should teach us, at one and the same time, our nothingness and our greatness; producing humility and animating hope.
      - Henry Melvill

For every grain of sand is a mystery; so is every daisy in summer, and so is every snow-flake in winter. Both upwards and downwards, and all around us, science and speculation pass into mystery at last.
      - William Mountford (1)

The nature of Christ is, I grant it, from one end to another, a web of mysteries; but this mysteriousness does not correspond to the difficulties which all existence contains. Let it be rejected, and the whole world is an enigma; let it be accepted, and we posses a wonderful explanation of the history of man.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

Mystery is the antagonist of truth. It is a fog of human invention, that obscures truth, and represents it in distortion.
      - Thomas Paine

To a man who is uncorrupt and properly constituted, woman always remains something of a mystery and a romance. He never interprets her quite literally. She, on her part, is always striving to remain a poem, and is never weary of bringing out new editions of herself in novel bindings.
      - James Parton
