God was, to me, a lovely dream, a brave make-believe daddy who provided comforting answers to those who couldn't bear the prevailing evidence.

We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be.

With god, what is terrible is that one never knows whether it's not just a trick of the devil.

“I don't have a religion. I believe in a God. I don't know what it looks like but it's MY god. My own interpretation of the supernatural.”

“The gods of men are sillier than their kings and queens, and emptier and more powerless.”

“So we arrived, and planted our flag at the geographical South Pole. Thanks be to God!”

God is not glorified in any transaction upon earth so much as in the conversion of a sinner.

God is an essence that we know nothing of. Until this awful blasphemy is got rid of, there never will be any liberal science in the world.

Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter.

I say to mankind, be not curious about god. for I, who am curious about each, am not curious about god - I hear and behold god in every object, yet understand god not in the least.

I may be as bad as the worst, but, thank god, I am as good as the best.

God is a comedian playing to an audience too afraid to laugh.

I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.

God is not on the side of the big battalions, but on the side of those who shoot best.
