We have a friend and protector, from whom, if we do not ourselves depart from Him, nor power nor spirit can separate us. In His strength let us proceed on our journey, through the storms, and troubles, and dangers of the world. However they may rage and swell, though the mountains shake at the tempests, our rock will not be moved: we have one friend who will never forsake us; one refuge, where we may rest in peace and stand in our lot at the end of the days. That same is He who liveth, and was dead; who is alive forevermore; and hath the keys of hell and of death.
      - Reginald Heber

God is, as it were, the sewer into which all contradictions flow.
      - Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

God will forgive me; that's his business.
      - Heinrich Heine

In all God's providences, it is good to compare His word and His works together; for we shall find a beautiful harmony between them, and that they mutually illustrate each other.
      - Matthew (Mathew) Henry

God is day and night, winter and summer, war and peace, satiety and want.
      - Heraclitus of Ephesus

Restore to God His due in tithe and time;
  A tithe purloin'd cankers the whole estate.
      - George Herbert,
        The Temple--The Church Porch (st. 65)

'Tis hard to find God, but to comprehend
  Him, as He is, is labour without end.
      - Robert Herrick

O askt the seas and all the deeps below
  My God to know,
    I askt the reptiles, and whatever is
      In the abyss;
        Even from the shrimps to the leviathan
          Enquiry ran;
            But in those deserts that no line can sound
              The God I sought for was not to be found.
      - Thomas Heywood, Searching after God

The great soul that sits on the throne of the universe is not, never was, and never will be, in a hurry.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

The great act of faith is when a man decides he is not God.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Forgetful youth! but know, the Power above
  With ease can save each object of His love;
    Wide as His will, extends His boundless grace.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios")

Forget youth! but know, the Power above
  With ease can save each object of his love;
    Wide as his will, extends his boundless grace.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios"), The Odyssey
         (bk. III, l. 285), (Pope's translation)

O thou, whose certain eye foresees
  The fix'd event of tate's remote decrees.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios"), The Odyssey
         (bk. IV, l. 627), (Pope's translation)

Dangerous it were for the feeble brain of man to wade far into the doings of the Most High; whom although to know be life, and joy to make mention of his name, yet our soundest knowledge is to know that we know him not as indeed he is, neither can know him; and out safest eloquence concerning him is our silence, when we confess without confession that his glory is inexplicable, his greatness above our capacity and reach.
      - Richard Hooker, Ecclesiastical Polity
         (bk. I, ch. II, 3)

The moral government of God is a movement in a line onwards towards some grand consummation, in which the principles, indeed, are ever the same, but the developments are always new--in which, therefore, no experience of the past can indicate with certainty what new openings of truth, what hew manifestations of goodness, what new phases of the moral heaven may appear.
      - Mark Hopkins

God can change the lowest to the highest, abase the proud, and raise the humble.
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus)

Who guides below, and rules above,
  The great disposer, and the mighty king;
    Than He none greater, next Him none,
      That can be, is, or was.
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus)

Was it possible that Napoleon should win the battle of Waterloo? We answer, No! Why? Because of Wellington? Because of Blucher? No! Because of God! For Bonaparte to conquer at Waterloo was not the law of the nineteenth century. It was time that this vast man should fall. He had been impeached before the Infinite! He had vexed God! Waterloo was not a battle. It was the change of front of the universe!
      - Victor Hugo

God give me strength to face a fact though it slay me.
      - Thomas Henry Huxley

I am athirst for God, the living God.
      - Jean Ingelow

God so loved the world that he made up his mind to damn a large majority of the human race.
      - Robert Green Ingersoll

If we admit that some infinite being has controlled the destinies of persons and peoples, history becomes a most cruel and bloody farce.
      - Robert Green Ingersoll

As a countenance is made beautiful by the soul's shining through it, so the world is beautiful by the shining through it of a God.
      - Hermann Jacobi

God is the tangential point between zero and infinity.
      - Alfred Jarry

God governs the world, and we have only to do our duty wisely, and leave the issue to Him.
      - John Jay
