Remember that there is nothing in God but what is godlike; and that He is either not at all, or truly and perfectly good.

Can we outrun the heavens?
      - William Shakespeare

God shall be my hope,
  My stay, my guide and' lantern to my feet.

He that doth the ravens feed,
  Yea, providently caters for the sparrow.
      - William Shakespeare

However wickedness outstrips men, it has no wings to fly from God.

God is our fortress, in whose conquering name
  Let us resolve to scale their flinty bulwarks.
      - William Shakespeare,

Henry will to himself
  Protector be; and God shall be my hope,
    My stay, my guide, and lantern to my feet.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (King Henry at II, iii)

And, to add greater honors to his age
  Than man could give him, he died fearing God.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Griffith at IV, ii)

God helps those who help themselves.
      - Algernon Sidney (Sydney),
        Discourse Concerning Government
         (ch. II, pt. XXIII)

Praise to our Father-God,
  High praise in solemn lay,
    Alike for what His hand hath given,
      And what it takes away.
      - Lydia Huntley Sigourney

From Piety, whose soul sincere
  Fears God, and knows no other fear.
      - William Smyth (1),

God's power never produces what His goodness cannot embrace.
      - Bishop Robert South

It is a great truth, "God reigns," and therefore grace reigns through righteousness unto eternal life, by Jesus Christ our Lord; and, therefore, no sinner on earth need ever despair.
      - Ichabod Smith Spencer

A secret sense of God's goodness is by no means enough. Men should make solemn and outward expressions of it, when they receive His creatures for their support; a service and homage not only due to Him, but profitable to themselves.
      - George Stanhope

Kircher lays it down as a certain principle, that there never was any people so rude which did not acknowledge and worship one supreme Deity.
      - Benjamin Stillingfleet

The divine essence itself is love and wisdom.
      - Emanuel Swedenborg (Swedberg),

I can understand the things that afflict mankind, but I often marvel at God those which console. An atom may wound, but God alone can heal.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

If we look closely at this earth, where God seems so utterly forgotten, we shall find that it is He, after all, who commands the most fidelity and the most love.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

A god could hardly love and be wise.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

God, the Great Giver, can open the whole universe to our gaze in the narrow space of a single land.
      - Rabindranath Tagore, Jivan-smitri

Under whose feet (subjected to His grace),
  Sit nature, fortune, motion, time, and place.
    [It., Ha sotto i piedi il Fato e la Natura.
      Ministri umili; e'l moto e chi'l misura.]
      - Torquato Tasso, Gerusalemme (IX, 56)

God is everywhere present by His power. He rolls the orbs of heaven with His hand; He fixes the earth with His foot; He guides all creatures with His eye, and refreshes them with His influence; He makes the powers of hell to shake with His terrors, and binds the devils with His word.
      - Jeremy Taylor

At last I heard a voice upon the slope
  Cry to the summit, "Is there any hope?"
    To which an answer pealed from that high land,
      But in a tongue no man could understand;
        And on the glimmering limit far withdrawn,
          God made himself an awful rose of dawn.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, Vision of Sin (V)

Let nothing disturb thee;
  Let nothing dismay thee:
    All things pass;
      God never changes.
        Patience attains
          All that it strives for.
            He who has God
              Finds he lacks nothing:
                God alone suffices.
      - Saint Teresa of Avila (Saint Teresa of Jesus) (Saint Theresa)

We worship unity in trinity, and trinity in union; neither confounding the person nor dividing the substance. There is one person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost; but the Godhead of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, is all one; the glory equal, the majesty co-eternal.
      - Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullian
