I believe that there is no God, but that matter is God and God is matter; and that it is no matter whether there is any God or no.
      - Unattributed Author,
        The Unbeliever's Creed--Connoisseur No. IX

Fear that man who fears not God.
      - Abd-el-Kader (Kadir)

If we can keep our minds calm on the subject of the "Eternity of God," if reason does not totter on her seat at the contemplation of underived existence, it will be strange if any other mystery relating to God should disturb us. He who can bring his reason to bow reverently at the idea of a Being who had no beginning, is well prepared to receive any communication of His will.
      - Nehemiah Adams

Though, in debating with regard to theories, it be lawful to say whether this or that is consistent with the Divine attributes, yet, when we find that God has actually done any thing, all question about its justice, wisdom, and benevolence is forever out of place.
      - Nehemiah Adams

Nearer, my God, to Thee--
  Nearer to Thee--
    E'en though it be a cross
      That raiseth me;
        Still all my song shall be
          Nearer, my God, to Thee,
            Nearer to Thee!
      - Mrs. Sarah Flower Adams,
        Nearer, my God, to Thee!,
        an article in "Notes and Queries" states words written by sister, Mrs. Byrdes Flower Adams

A source of cheerfulness to a good mind is the consideration of that Being on whom we have our dependence, and in whom, though we behold Him as yet but in the first faint discoveries of His perfections, we see everything that we can imagine as great glorious, or amiable. We find ourselves everywhere upheld by His goodness and surrounded by an immensity of love and mercy.
      - Joseph Addison

It is folly to seek the approbation of any being besides the Supreme.
      - Joseph Addison

The moral perfections of the Deity, the more attentively, we consider, the more perfectly still shall we know them.
      - Joseph Addison

Man thinks, God directs.
  [Lat., Homo cogitat, Deu indicat.]
      - Alcuin (Albinus), Epistles

There are regions beyond the most nebulous outskirts of matter; but no regions beyond the Divine goodness. We may conceive of tracts where there are no worlds, but not of any where there is no God of mercy.
      - James W. Alexander

My bark is wafted to the strand
  By breath Divine;
    And on the helm there rests a hand
      Other than mine.
      - Henry Alford

The God of merely traditional believers is the great Absentee of the universe.
      - William R. Alger

Converting grace puts God on the throne, and the world at His footstool; Christ in the heart; and the world under His feet.
      - Joseph Alleine

He who knows what it is to enjoy God will dread His loss; he who has seen His face will fear to see His back.
      - Richard Alleine

Not only is there no God, but try finding a plumber on Sunday.
      - Woody Allen

At Athens, wise men propose, and fools dispose.
      - Anacharsis

Man says--"So, so."
  Heaven says--"No, no."
      - Aphorism, (Chinese)

Man proposes, and God disposes.
  [It., Ordina l'uomo, e dio dispone.]
      - Ludovico Ariosto, Orlando Furioso
         (ch. XLVI, 35)

God's Wisdom and God's Goodness!--Ah, but fools
  Mis-define thee, till God knows them no more.
    Wisdom and goodness they are God!--what schools
      Have yet so much as heard this simpler lore.
        This no Saint preaches, and this no Church rules:
          'Tis in the desert, now and heretofore.
      - Matthew Arnold, The Divinity (st. 3)

If God be infinitely holy, just, and good, He must take delight in those creatures that resemble Him most in these perfections.
      - Francis Atterbury

As the soul is the life of the body, so God is the life of the soul. As therefore the body perishes when the soul leaves it, so the soul dies when God departs from it.
      - Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo)

I sought Thee at a distance, and did not know that Thou wast near. I sought Thee abroad, and behold, Thou wast within me.
      - Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo)

Thou awakest us to delight in Thy praise; for Thou madest us for Thyself, and our heart is restless until it repose in Thee.
      - Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo)

God is best known in not knowing him.
  [Ger., Deus scitur melius nesciendo.]
      - Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo),
        De Ordine (II, 16)

God hangs the greatest weights upon the smallest wires.
      - Francis Bacon
