God seems to have left the receiver off the hook and time is running out.
      - Arthur Koestler

To God belongeth the east and the west; therefore, whithersoever ye turn yourselves to pray, there is the word of God; for God is omnipresent and omniscient.
      - Koran

God! there is no God but he, the living, the self-subsisting.
      - Koran, ch. II, pt. III

There is no god but God.
      - Koran, ch. III

History is the revelation of Providence.
      - Louis Kossuth

God alone is true; God alone is great; alone is God.
      - Edouard Rene Lefebure Laboulaye

The very impossibility in which I find myself to prove that God is not, discloses to me His existence.
  [Fr., L'impossibilite ou je suis de prouver que Dieu n'est pas, me decouvre son existence.]
      - Jean de la Bruyere, Les Caracteres (XVI)

The hand of God never tires, nor are its movements aimless. It makes all things subservient to its designs, and, at every turn, disappoints the calculations of man, causing the most insignificant events to expand to the mightiest consequences, while those that have the appearance of mountains vanish into nothing.
      - John Lanahan

And governeth alle goode virtues.
  [Lat., Homo proponit et Deus disponit.]
      - William Langland,
        Vision of Piers Ploughman
         (vol. II, p. 427, l. 13.984), (ed. 1824)

Sire, I had no need for that hypothesis.
  [Fr., Sire, je n'avais besoin de cet hypothese.]
      - Marquis Pierre Simon de La Place,
        said to Napoleon asking why God not in Traite de la Mechanique Celeste

Your Highness, I have no need of this hypothesis.
      - Marquis Pierre Simon de La Place,
        to Napoleon on why his celestial mechanics work make no mention of God

It is one of my favorite thoughts that God manifests Himself to men in all the wise, good, humble, generous, great, and magnanimous men.
      - Johann Kaspar Lavater (John Caspar Lavater)

What an immense workman is God! in miniature as well as in the great. With the one hand, perhaps, He is making a ring of one hundred thousand miles in diameter, to revolve round a planet like Saturn, and with the other is forming a tooth in the ray of the feather of a humming-bird, or a point in the claw of the foot of a microscopic insect. When He works in miniature, everything is gilded, polished, and perfect, but whatever is made by human art, as a needle, etc., when viewed by a microscope, appears rough, and coarse, and bungling.
      - William Law

God is love, but get it in writing.
      - Gypsy Rose Lee

God is a concept by which we measure our pain.
      - John Lennon

For God rewards good deeds done here below--rewards them here.
  [Ger., Denn Gott lohnt Gutes, heir gethan, auch hier noch.]
      - Ephraim Gotthold Lessing, Nathan der Wiese
         (I, 2)

God must have loved the plain people; He made so many of them.
      - Abraham Lincoln

"We trust, Sir, that God is on our side." "It is more important to know that we are on God's side."
      - Abraham Lincoln,
        a reply to deputation of Southerners during American Civil War

All is of God. If He but wave His hand,
  The mists collect, the rains fall thick and loud;
    Till, with a smile of light on sea and land,
      Lo! He looks back from the departing cloud.
        Angels of life and death alike are His;
          Without His leave they pass no threshold o'er;
            Who, then, would wish or dare, believing this,
              Against His messengers to shut the door?
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

God had sifted three kingdoms to find the wheat for this planting.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
        The Courtship of Miles Standish (IV)

Not a sorrow, not a burden, not a temptation, not a bereavement, not a disappointment, not a care, not a groan or tear, but has its antidote in God's rich and inexhaustible resources.
      - George Horace Lorimer

Be He nowhere else, God is in all that liberates and lifts, in all that humbles, sweetens, and consoles.
      - James Russell Lowell

'Tis heaven alone that is given away,
  'Tis only God may be had for the asking.
      - James Russell Lowell

An' you've gut to git up airly
  Ef you want to take in God.
      - James Russell Lowell, The Biglow Papers
         (first series, no. 1, st. 5)

Is there any other seat of the Divinity than the earth, sea, air, the heavens, and virtuous minds? why do we seek God elsewhere? He is whatever you see; he is wherever you move.
  [Lat., Estne dei sedes nisi terra et pontus et aer
    Et coelum et virtus? Superos quid quaerimus ultra?
      Jupiter est quodcumque vides, quodcumque moveris.]
      - Lucanus (Marcus Annaeus Lucan), Pharsalia
         (IX, 578)
