God is like a skilful Geometrician.
      - Sir Thomas Browne, Religio Medici I (16)

God is a perfect poet,
  Who in His person acts His own creations.
      - Robert Browning

That we devote ourselves to God is seen
  In living just as though no God there were.
      - Robert Browning, Paracelsus (pt. I)

God is the perfect poet,
  Who in his person acts his own creations.
      - Robert Browning, Paracelsus (pt. II)

God's in His Heaven--
  All's right with the world!
      - Robert Browning, Pippa Passes (pt. I)

All service is the same with God,
  With God, whose puppets, best and worst,
    Are we: there is no last nor first.
      - Robert Browning, Pippa Passes (pt. IV)

Of what I call God,
  And fools call Nature.
      - Robert Browning,
        The Ring and the Book--The Pope
         (l. 1,073)

All things that are on earth shall wholly pass away,
  Except the love of God, which shall live and last for aye.
      - William Cullen Bryant

To be struck with His power, it is only necessary to open our eyes.
      - Edmund Burke

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

However dark our lot may be, there is light enough on the other side of the cloud, in that pure empyrean where God dwells, to irradiate every darkness of this world; light enough to clear every difficult question, remove every ground of obscurity, conquer every atheistic suspicion, silence every hard judgment, light enough to satisfy, nay, to ravish the mind forever.
      - Horace Bushnell

"There is no god but God!--to prayer--lo!
  God is great!"
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Childe Harold (canto II, st. 59)

A picket frozen on duty--
  A mother starved for her brood--
    Socrates drinking the hemlock,
      And Jesus on the rood;
        And millions who, humble and nameless,
          The straight, hard pathway trod--
            Some call it Consecration,
              And others call it God.
      - William Herbert Carruth, Evolution

I shall be an autocrat: that's my trade. And the good Lord will forgive me: that's his.
  [Fr., Moi, je serai autocrate: c'est mon metier. Et le bon Dieu me pardonnnera: c'est son metier.]
      - attributed to Catherine, the Great

The Christian will sometimes be brought to walk in a solitary path. God seems to cut away his props, that He may reduce him to Himself. His religion is to be felt as a personal, particular, appropriate possession. He is to feel that, as there is but one Jehovah to bless, so there seems to him as though there were but one penitent in the universe to be blessed by Him.
      - Richard Cecil

His eye is upon every hour of my existence.
      - Thomas Chalmers

While earthly objects are exhausted by familiarity the thought of God becomes to the devout man continually brighter, richer, vaster; derives fresh luster from all that he observes of nature and Providence, and attracts to itself all the glories of the universe.
      - William Ellery Channing

It takes something of a poet to apprehend and get into the depth, the lusciousness, the spiritual life of a great poem. And so we must be in some way like God in order that we may see God as He is.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

We must be in some way like God in order that we may see God as He is.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Since therefore all things are ordered in subserviency to the good of man, they are so ordered by Him that made both man and them.
      - Stephen Charnock

There is nothing which God cannot do.
  [Lat., Nihil est quod deus efficere non possit.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        De Divinatione (II, 41)

It may be that our role on this planet is not to worship God, but to create him.
      - Arthur C. Clarke

God sends you joy, for sorrow will come fast enough.
      - John Clarke

God is everywhere! the God who framed
  Mankind to be one, mighty family,
    Himself our Father, and the world our home.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

How did the atheist get his idea of that God whom he denies?
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge
