      - Francis Bacon

They that deny a God destroy man's nobility; for certainly man is of kin to the beasts by his body; and, if he be not of kin to God by his spirit, his is a base and ignoble creature.
      - Francis Bacon, Essays--Of Atheism

Dear Lord, our God and Saviour! for Thy gifts
  The world were poor in thanks, though every soul
    Were to do nought but breathe them, every blade
      Of grass, and every atomie of earth
        To utter it like dew.

Thy great name
  In all its awful brevity, hath nought
    Unholy breeding it, but doth bless
      Rather the tongue that uses it; for me,
        I ask no higher office than to fling
          My spirit at Thy feet, and cry Thy name,
            God! through eternity.
      - Philip James Bailey

Thy attributes, how endearing! how parental! all loving, all forgiving.
      - Hosea Ballou

Such was God's original love for man that He was willing to stoop to any sacrifice to save him; and the gift of a Saviour was the mere expression of that love.
      - Albert Barnes

The love of God ought continually to predominate in the mind, and give to every act of duty grace and animation.
      - James Beattie

And now we beseech of Thee that we may have every day some such sense of God's mercy and of the power of God above us, as we have of the fullness of the light of heaven before us.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

God appoints our graces to be nurses to other men's weaknesses.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

God is a being who gives everything but punishment in over measure.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

God is like us to this extent, that whatever in us is good is like God.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

God is the one great employer, thinker, planner, supervisor.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

God pardons like a mother who kisses the offense into everlasting forgetfulness.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

God wishes to exhaust all means of kindness before His hand takes hold on justice.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

God's glory is His goodness.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

God's sovereignty is not in His right hand; God's sovereignty is not in His intellect; God's sovereignty is in His love.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

I know by myself how incomprehensible God is, seeing I cannot comprehend the parts of my own being.
      - Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
  For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
      - Bible, Acts (ch. XVII, v. 22-23)

Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all.
      - Bible, I Chronicles (ch. XXIX, v. 11)

But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
  And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
    That no flesh should glory in his presence.
      - Bible, I Corinthians (ch. I, v. 27-29)
