Quote of the Day
God created a number of possibilities in case some of his prototypes failed - that is the meaning of evolution.
Graham Greene

Emily Dickinson

I don't believe in God but I'm very interested in her.
Arthur C Clarke

You will reciprocally promise love, loyalty and matrimonial honesty. We only want for you this day that these words constitute the principle of your entire life and that with the help of divine grace you will observe these solemn vows that today, before God, you formulate
Pope John Paul II

"I think God is a giant vibrator in the sky... a pulsating force of incredible energy."
David Arquette

God has plans which mortals don't understand. He rests in the womb when the new baby forms. Whispers the life dream to infinitesimal cells. It is God who lies under the thoughts of man. He is cartilage. Memory.
Ellease Southerland

Sarah Flower Adams

Those whom God wishes to destroy, he first makes mad
Euripides

'Is it easy to love God?' asks an old author. 'It is easy,' he replies, 'to those who do it.' I have included two Graces under the word Charity. But God can give a third. He can awake in man, towards Himself, a supernatural Appreciative love. This is of all gifts the most to be desired. Here, not in our natural loves, nor even in ethics, lies the true centre of all human and angelic life. With this all things are possible.
C S Lewis

No government ought to be without censors; and where the press is free, no one ever will. Chance is the pseudonym of God when he did not want to sign.
Anatole France

God hath sworn to lift on high
Who sinks himself by true humility
John Keble

To take away life is a power which the vilest of the earth have in common; to give it belongs to gods and kings alone

Elvis Presley

The greatest act of faith is when a man understands he is not God.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Junior

In such a world as this, with such hearts as ours, weakness is wickedness in the long run. Whoever lets himself be shaped and guided by any thing lower than an inflexible will, fixed in obedience to God, will in the end be shaped into a deformity, and guided to wreck and ruin
Alexander Maclaren

Gods are fragile things; they may be killed by a whiff of science or a dose of common sense.

Leo Durocher

God was satisfied with his own work, and that is fatal.
Samuel Butler

Our flag is red, white and blue, but our nation is a rainbow-red, yellow, brown, black and white-and we're all precious in God's sight.
Jesse Jackson

The question, 'How can you believe in a God who permits suffering on this scale?' is therefore very much around at the moment, and it would be surprising if it weren't - indeed it would be wrong if it weren't. [after the 2004 Asian tsunami]
Rowan Williams

Out of disbelief in God we have impudently assumed that all of life is now subject to our own will. [Diagnosing the problems that have caused all the social ills of the modern age]
Leslie Farber

Gerard Didier Erasmus

I said to this priest: 'Am I expected to believe that if I went out and had an affair that God was really going to be upset? Okay, thou shalt not kill... steal... but thou shalt not commit adultery? If no one is any the wiser, what the hell difference does it make?' He was lovely. He told me the Commandments were laid down for a lot of guys living in the desert
Diana Dors

It is evident that an acquaintance with natural laws means no less than an acquaintance with the mind of God therein expressed
James Joule

For, were it not good that evil things should also exist, the omnipotent God would almost certainly not allow evil to be, since beyond doubt it is just as easy for Him not to allow what He does not will, as for Him to do what He will.
Saint Augustine

What a Friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer! [Hymn]

Ansel Adams

Oh, that God the gift would give us
To see ourselves as others see us

Id go gay for her. She was a fascinating and exotic woman. There was so much to admire about her. She lived life to the full, maybe a little too fully. I want to release the inner Tallulah in me. God knows I cant get a man - so maybe I should cross over [on Tallulah Bankhead]
Kylie Minogue

Paul Tillich

When you look at electrical things you can see that they are made of small and big wires, cheap and expensive all lined up. Until the current runs through them there will be no light. Those wires are you and me and the current is God. We have the power to let the current pass through us, use us and produce the light of the world or we can refuse to be used and allow darkness to spread.
Mother Teresa

God wills, Man dreams, the Work is born.
Fernando Pessoa

God exists in eternity. The only point where eternity meets time is in the present. The present is the only time there is.

What you don't understand is that it is possible to be an atheist, it is possible not to know if God exists or why He should, and yet to believe that man does not live in a state of nature but in history, and that history as we know it now began with Christ, it was founded by Him on the Gospels.
Boris Pasternak
