His steps are beauty, and His presence light.
      - James Montgomery

When God reveals His march through Nature's night
  His steps are beauty, and His presence light.
      - James Montgomery

If you were to spend a month feeding on the precious promises of God, you would not be going about with your heads hanging down like bulrushes, complaining how poor you are; but you would lift up your heads with confidence, and proclaim the riches of His grace because you could not help it.
      - Dwight Lyman Moody

Thou art, O God, the life and light
  Of all this wondrous world we see;
    Its glow by day, its smile by night,
      Are but reflections caught from Thee!
        Where'er we turn thy glories shine,
          And all things fair and bright are thine!
      - Thomas Moore

To love God, which was a thing far excelling all the cunning that is possible for us in this life to obtain.
      - Sir Thomas More

For the greater glory of God.
  [Lat., Ad majorem Dei gloriam.]
      - Motto, of the Society of Jesus

Day and night, and every moment, there are voices about us. All the hours speak as they pass; and in every event there is a message to us; and all our circumstances talk with us; but it is in Divine language, that worldliness misunderstands, that selfishness is frightened at, and that only the children of God hear rightly and happily.
      - William Mountford (1)

God in his wisdom made the fly and then forgot to tell us why.
      - Ogden Nash

Lead, kindly Light! amid the encircling gloom,
  Lead Thou me on;
    The night is dark and I am far from home,
      Lead Thou me on;
        Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
          The distant scene; one step enough for me.
      - Cardinal John Henry Newman

We are not to consider the world as a body of God: He is an uniform being, devoid of organs, members, or parts; and they are His creatures, subordinate to Him, and subservient to His will.
      - Sir Isaac Newton

A God-intoxicated man.
  [Ger., Gott-trunkener Mensch.]
      - Novalis (pseudonym of Frederich Leopold von Hardenberg)

Trumpeter, sound for the splendour of God!
  . . . .
    Trumpeter, rally us, up to the heights of it!
      Sound for the City of God.
      - Alfred Noyes, Trumpet Call (last lines)

But if the sky were paper and a scribe each star above,
  And every scribe had seven hands, they could not write all my love.
      - Old Saying, Dursli und Babeli,
        old Swiss ditty given in "Notes and Queries", Feb. 10, 1872, p. 114

When did I realize I was God? Well, I was praying and I suddenly realized I was talking to myself.
      - Peter O'Toole

There is a God within us and intercourse with heaven.
  [Lat., Est deus in nobis; et sunt commercia coeli.]
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso), Ars Amatoria
         (bk. III, 549)

There is a God within us, and we glow when he stirs us.
  [Lat., Est deus in nobis: agitante calescimus illo.]
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso), Fasti
         (bk. VI, 5)

As God is propitiated by the blood of a hundred bulls, so also is he by the smallest offering of incense.
  [Lat., Sed tamen ut fuso taurorum sanguine centum,
    Sic capitur minimo thuris honore deux.]
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso), Tristium
         (II, 75)

Nothing is so high and above all danger that is not below and in the power of God.
  [Lat., Nihil ita sublime est, supraque pericula tendit
    Non sit ut inferius suppositumque deo.]
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso), Tristium
         (IV, 8, 47)

The perfect love of God knoweth no difference between the poor and the rich.
      - Marcus Pacuvius

God has been pleased to prescribe limits to His own power, and to work His ends within these limits.
      - William Paley, Archdeacon of Saragossa

The Eternal Being is forever if He is at all.
      - Blaise Pascal

When we would think of God, how many things we find which turn us away from Him, and tempt us to think otherwise. All this is evil, yet it is innate.
      - Blaise Pascal

"God is, or He is not." But to which side shall we incline? Reason can decide nothing here. There is an infinite chaos which separated us. A game is being played at the extremity of this infinite distance where heads or tails will turn up. What will you wager?
      - Blaise Pascal, Pensees

God is kind; but within the limits of inexorable law. He is good; but you can take no liberties with Him; for back of His pity and kindness is the righteousness that is so exact, and that must be satisfied to the uttermost farthing.
      - Dr. John Randolph Paxton

God's will is the very perfection of all reason.
      - Edward Payson
