I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.
Who, except the gods, can live time through forever without any pain?
If God listened to the prayers of men, all men would quickly have perished: for they are forever praying for evil against one another.
In the mean time I worship God, laying every wrong action under an interdict which I endeavour to respect, and I loathe the wicked without doing them any injury.
Beauty is indeed a good gift of God; but that the good may not think it a great good, God dispenses it even to the wicked.
Sorrow is a fruit. God does not make it grow on limbs too weak to bear it.
Beyond a doubt truth bears the same relation to falsehood as light to darkness.
Humor must not professedly teach and it must not professedly preach, but it must do both if it would live forever.
I believe God is managing affairs and that He doesn't need any advice from me. With God in charge, I believe everything will work out for the best in the end. So what is there to worry about.
What you're paying for is technique. And the opportunity to look truly wicked. Isn't it worth it as long as you look wicked and feel good?
I think that God, in creating man, somewhat overestimated his ability.
God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, but on trees, and flowers, and clouds, and stars.
All things truly wicked start from an innocence.
When men stop believing in God, it isn't that they then believe in nothing: they believe in everything.
God gives the nuts, but he does not crack them.
God must love the common man, he made so many of them.
Anyone who truly loves God travels securely.
God is not on the side of the big battalions, but on the side of those who shoot best.
Difficulties show men what they are. In case of any difficulty remember that God has pitted you against a rough antagonist that you may be a conqueror, and this cannot be without toil.
He was an embittered atheist, the sort of atheist who does not so much disbelieve in God as personally dislike Him.
God hath given you one face, and you make yourselves another.
Beware when the great God lets loose a thinker on this planet. Then all things are at risk. It is as when a conflagration has broken out in a great city, and no man knows what is safe, or where it will end. There is not a piece of science, but its flank may be turned to-morrow; there is not any literary reputation, not the so-called eternal names of fame, that may not be revised and condemned. The very hopes of man, the thoughts of his heart, the religion of nations, the manners and morals of mankind, are all at the mercy of a new generalization. Generalization is always a new influx of the divinity into the mind. Hence the thrill that attends it.
You know I could stop working as an actress and still be doing promotion on movies I did ten years ago. And I don't like to do the same thing forever.
Those whom God wishes to destroy, he first makes angry.
We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.
