Sometimes Providences, like Hebrew letters, must be read backwards.
      - Rev. John Flavel (2)

Henceforth the Majesty of God revere;
  Fear him and you have nothing else to fear.
      - James Fordyce,
        Answer to a Gentleman who Apologized to the Author for Swearing

God is not a cosmic bell-boy for whom we can press a button to get things done.
      - Harry Emerson Fosdick

As a man exhibits himself in physical forms and actions, so there is one other Spirit, a great, wide, mighty, infinite, eternal Spirit back there in the depths of space, and in the present, and in the future, and in the abysses of space, who at His will wrestles into existence great globes, and keeps them in their position. He builds them, and places on them these mysterious forms of earth which are signals hung out over these abysses to tell coming spirits who He is, what He is, what He does, how high is His throne, and how vast is His power from eternity to eternity, from infinity to infinity through all ages of all time; He is holding forth to men and angels these external tokens of His almighty power, of His infinite skill, and of His everlasting love.
      - Randolph S. Foster

God governs in the affairs of men; and if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, neither can a kingdom rise without His aid.
      - Benjamin Franklin

As the sensation of hunger presupposes food to satisfy it, so the sense of dependence on God presupposes His existence and character.
      - Octavius Brooks Frothingham

The Providence that watches over the affairs of men works out of their mistakes, at times, a healthier issue than could have been accomplished by their wisest forethought.
      - James Anthony Froude

God's truth and faithfulness "are a great deep." They resemble the ocean itself; always there--vast, fathomless, sublime, the same in its majesty, its inexhaustible fullness, yesterday, today, and forever; the same in calm and storm, by day and by night; changeless while generations come and pass; everlasting while ages are rolling away.
      - Richard Fuller (1)

I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.
      - Galilei Galileo

When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator.
      - Indira Gandhi

The glorious Author of the universe,
  Who reins the winds, gives the vast ocean bounds,
    And circumscribes the floating worlds their rounds!
      - John Gay

Running like a gulf-stream through the sea of times comes the affirmation that God has manifested Himself to man, and the best men have affirmed it most persistently. Wherever this affirmation has made its way, the icebergs of skepticism have disappeared, the temperature of virtue has risen, and the sweet fruits of charity have ripened. If the belief be false, then a lie has blessed the World, and the soul is so organized that it reaches its highest state of development in an atmosphere of deception; for it is a fact that man is purest and woman most virtuous where belief in God's manifestations is most intense and real.
      - Orrin Philip Gifford

As a man is, so is his God; therefore God was so often an object of mockery.
  [Ger., Wie einer ist, so ist sein Gott,
    Darum ward Gott so oft zu Spott.]
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Gedichte

I know
  My God commands, whose power no power resists.
      - Robert Greene,
        Looking-Glass for London and England

It is as easy for God to supply thy greatest as thy smallest wants, even as it was within His power to form a system or an atom, to create a blazing sun as to kindle the fire-fly's lamp.
      - Thomas Guthrie (1)

Contemplation of human nature doth by a necessary connection and chain of causes carry us up to the Deity.
      - Sir Matthew Hale

There is no worm of the earth, no spire of grass, no leaf, no twig, wherein we see not the footsteps of a Deity.
      - Robert Hall

Many people have their own God; and He is much what the French may mean when they talk of Le bon Dieu--very indulgent, rather weak, near at hand when we want anything, but far away, out of sight, when we have a mind to do wrong. Such a God is as much an idol as if He were an image of stone.
      - Augustus William Hare

Some men treat the God of their fathers as they treat their father's friend. They do not deny him; by no means: they only deny themselves to him, when he is good enough to call upon them.
      - A.W. Hare and J.C. Hare, Guesses at Truth

Nothing reveals character more than self-sacrifice. So the highest knowledge we have of God is through the gift of His Son.
      - William Torrey Harris

The creator who could put a cancer in a believer's stomach is above being interfered with by prayers.
      - Bret Harte (Francis Bret Harte)

Give God the margin of eternity to justify Himself in, and the more we live and know of our own souls and of spiritual experience generally, the more we shall be convinced that we have to do with one who is good and just.
      - Hugh Reginald Haweis

Whenever I think of God I can only conceive of Him as a Being infinitely great and infinitely good. This last quality of the divine nature inspires me with such confidence and joy that I could have written even a miserere in tempo allegro.
      - Franz Joseph Haydn

It is highly convenient to believe in the infinite mercy of God when you feel the need of mercy, but remember also His infinite justice.
      - Benjamin Robert Haydon

Mistrusts sometimes come over one's mind of the justice of God. But let a real misery come again, and to whom do we fly? To whom do we instinctively and immediately look up?
      - Benjamin Robert Haydon
