Tom Robbins
“Suppose neutral angels were able to talk, Yahweh and Lucifer – God and Satan, to use their popular titles – into settling out of court. What would be the terms of the compromise? Specifically, how would they divide the assets of their early kingdom?

Would God be satisfied the loaves and fishes and itty-bitty thimbles of Communion wine, while Satan to have the red-eye gravy, eighteen-ounce New York Stakes, and buckets of chilled champagne? Would God really accept twice-a-month lovemaking for procreative purposes and give Satan the all night, no-holds-barred, nasty “can’t-get-enough-of-you” hot-as-hell-fucks?

Think about it. Would Satan get New Orleans, Bangkok, and the French Riviera and God get Salt Lake City? Satan get ice hockey, God get horseshoes? God get bingo, Satan get stud poker? Satan get LSD; God, Prozac? God get Neil Simon; Satan Oscar Wilde?”
Tom Robbins

Stephen King
“I don't believe in any actual thinking God that marks the fall of every bird in Australia or every bug in India, a God that records all of our sins in a big golden book and judges us when we die - I don't want to believe in a God who would deliberately create bad people and then deliberately send them to roast in a hell He created-but I believe there has to be something”
Stephen King

“The power of God is with you at all times; through the activities of mind, senses, breathing, and emotions; and is constantly doing all the work using you as a mere instrument.”
Anonymous, Bhagavad Gita: El Canto del Senor

Stephen Hawking
“When people ask me if a god created the universe, I tell them that the question itself makes no sense. Time didn’t exist before the big bang, so there is no time for god to make the universe in. It’s like asking directions to the edge of the earth; The Earth is a sphere; it doesn’t have an edge; so looking for it is a futile exercise. We are each free to believe what we want, and it’s my view that the simplest explanation is; there is no god. No one created our universe,and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization; There is probably no heaven, and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe, and for that I am extremely grateful.”
Stephen Hawking

Leo Tolstoy
“God is the same everywhere.”
Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

Nicholas Sparks
“If pinpointing God's presence were really that simple, then he supposed the beaches would be more crowded in the mornings. They would be filled with people on their own quests, instead of people jogging or walking their dogs or fishing in the surf.”
Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song

Joshilyn Jackson
“God gave us crying so other folks could see when we needed help, and help us.”
Joshilyn Jackson, Gods in Alabama

Arianna Huffington
“Why worry about minor little details like clean air, clean water, safe ports and the safety net when Jesus is going to give the world an "Extreme Makeover: Planet Edition" right after he finishes putting Satan in his place once and for all?”
Arianna Huffington

David Livingstone
“God, send me anywhere, only go with me. Lay any burden on me, only sustain me. And sever any tie in my heart except the tie that binds my heart to Yours.”
David Livingstone

Shane Claiborne
“Only God is awesome.”
Shane Claiborne

John Green
“Rabe'a al-Adiwiyah, a great woman saint of Sufism, was seen running through the streets of her hometown, Basra, carrying a torch in one hand and a bucket of water in the other. When someone asked her what she was doing, she answered, 'I am going to take this bucket of water and pour it on the flames of hell, and then I am going to use this torch to burn down the gates of paradise so that people will not love God for want of heaven or fear of hell, but because He is God.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska

Martin Luther
“Although it is very easy to marry a wife, it is very difficult to support her along with the children and the household. Accordingly, no one notices this faith of Jacob. Indeed, many hate fertility in a wife for the sole reason that the offspring must be supported and brought up. For this is what they commonly say: ‘Why should I marry a wife when I am a pauper and a beggar? I would rather bear the burden of poverty alone and not load myself with misery and want.’ But this blame is unjustly fastened on marriage and fruitfulness. Indeed, you are indicting your unbelief by distrusting God’s goodness, and you are bringing greater misery upon yourself by disparaging God’s blessing. For if you had trust in God’s grace and promises, you would undoubtedly be supported. But because you do not hope in the Lord, you will never prosper.”
Martin Luther, The Sermons of Martin Luther: 7 Volumes

محمد متولي الشعراوي
“ويكفيك عِزًا وكرامة أنك إذا أردتَ مقابلة سيدك أن يكون الأمر بيدك ، فما عليك إلا أن تتوضأ وتنوي المقابلة قائلًا : اللَّه أكبر ، فتكون في معية اللَّه عز وجل في لقاء تحدد أنت مكانه وموعده ومدته ، وتختار أنت موضوع المقابلة ، وتظل في حضرة ربك إلى أن تنهي المقابلة متى أردتَ .
فما بالك لو حاولت لقاء عظيم من عظماء الدنيا ؟ وكم أنت ملاقٍ من المشقة والعنت ؟ وكم دونه من الحُجّاب و الحراس؟ ثم بعد ذلك ليس لك أن تختار لا الزمان و المكان و لا الموضوع ولاغيره!”
محمد متولي الشعراوي, كيف تقرأ القرآن الكريم وتحفظه

C.S. Lewis
“The event of falling in love is of such a nature that we are right to reject as intolerable the idea that it should be transitory. In one high bound it has overleaped the massive of our selfhood; it has made appetite itself altruistic, tossed personal happiness aside as a triviality and planted the interests of another in the centre of our being. Spontaneously and without effort we have fulfilled the law (towards one person) by loving our neighbour as ourselves. It is an image, a foretaste, of what we must become to all if Love Himself rules in us without a rival. It is even (well used) a preparation for that.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Rachel Van Dyken
“the nurse smiled and patted my arm. “Don’t give up yet. Sometimes when we think God has written The End, what he really means is The Beginning.”
Rachel Van Dyken, Ruin

John Wesley
“Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin, and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen; such alone will shake the gates of hell and set up the kingdom of heaven on Earth.”
John Wesley

Corrie ten Boom
“(on forgiveness) Didn't he and I stand together before an all seeing God convicted of the same murder? For I had murdered him with my heart and my tongue.”
Corrie ten Boom, The Hiding Place

Edgar Allan Poe
“The idea of God, infinity, or spirit stands for the possible attempt at an impossible conception.”
Edgar Allan Poe

Mikhail Bakunin
“But here steps in Satan, the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds. He makes man ashamed of his bestial ignorance and obedience; he emancipates him, stamps upon his brow the seal of liberty and humanity, in urging him to disobey and eat of the fruit of knowledge.”
Mikhail Bakunin

Jarod Kintz
“Not only do I not believe in not believing in God, I’m also a big supporter of crutches, canes, walkers, and anything that helps support man through difficult times.
”
Jarod Kintz, The Days of Yay are Here! Wake Me Up When They're Over.
