Author: Abigail Washburn
2. "Eating, drinking, dying - three primary manifestations of the universal and impersonal life. Animals live that impersonal and universal life without knowing its nature. Ordinary people know its nature but don't live it and, if they think seriously about it, refuse to accept it. An enlightened person knows it, lives it, and accepts it completely. He eats, he drinks, and in due course he dies - but he eats with a difference, drinks with a difference, dies with a difference."
Author: Aldous Huxley
3. "I suppose I have the tastes of someone who teaches at a university in the provinces."
Author: Andrew Davies

Author: Anne Rice
5. "When I see the blind and wretched state of men, when I survey the whole universe in its deadness, and man left to himself with no light, as though lost in this corner of the universe without knowing who put him there, what he has to do, or what will become of him when he dies, incapable of knowing anything, I am moved to terror, like a man transported in his sleep to some terrifying desert island, who wakes up quite lost, with no means of escape. Then I marvel that so wretched a state does not drive people to despair."
Author: Blaise Pascal

7. "The enemy of our souls does not want the word of God to abide in us. The enemy knows what the word of God does to our hearts and minds. He knows that the word of God is the most powerful thing in the universe. He knows that the word of God created the universe. He knows that the word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword. The enemy knows that the word of God imparts to us the very determination of Jesus Christ Himself. That's why the enemy does everything he can to deter you from the word. The enemy is terrified of the word of God. He knows that when the word of God abides in you, he becomes the victim, and you become the victor OVER HIM!"
Author: Brian Williams

Author: Chandrababu V.S.

Author: Colm Tóibín

Is god confused?"
Author: Dan Barker

14. "I'll never understand why some people can't just let others live their lives, you know," Danial said. "You don't have to understand. You don't have to agree. Just leave people alone. When I look at the moon and planets and stars, all that narrow-mindedness and hate seem so petty. The universe is such a big place. One hundred thousand light years just from one end of the Milky Way to the other. One hundred. Thousand. Light years. In the time it's taken for light to travel from one end of our galaxy to the other, thousands of generations have passed. It really makes you realize how small we are, doesn't it? How short our time on earth is."
Author: J.H. Trumble

Author: Jonathan Franzen
21. "Your future together? To get there, it means refusing all the other crap the universe hands you. It means telling the Wheel of Fate to suck it and roll over someone else. It means not settling for any of the other endings you see coming. It means holding out."
Author: Kami Garcia
22. "A comfort zone can be a mental state:Belief in God is a lot of peoples's comfort zone. Dont get me wrong, I'm not knocking faith; I just dont think you should have it because it makes you feel safe. I think you should have it because you do. Because somewhere deep inside you, you know beyond equivocating that something greater, wiser and infinitely more loving than we're capable of understanding has a vested interested in the universe, in the way things turn out. Because you can feel that, as much as the forces of darkness might try to gain the upper hand, there is an Upper Hand."
Author: Karen Marie Moning

25. "...universities were not meant entirely, or even chiefly, as stepping-stones to an examination, but that there is something else which universities can teach and ought to teach—nay, which I feel quite sure they were originally meant to teach—something that may not have a marketable value before a Board of Examiners, but which has a permanent value for the whole of our life, and that is a real interest in our work, and, more than that, a love of our work, and, more than that, a true joy and happiness in our work..."
Author: Max Müller
26. "We've already gotten a significant grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and a university consortium. I think the whole sector of Foundations, potentially with government support, is promising - more than promising, I think, it's substantial."
Author: Mitch Kapor
27. "Just as many who were brought up to think of God as a bearded old gentleman sitting on a cloud decided that when they stopped believing in such a being they had therefore stopped believing in God, so many who were taught to think of hell as a literal underground location full of worms and fire...decided that when they stopped believing in that, so they stopped believing in hell. The first group decided that because they couldn't believe in childish images of God, they must be atheists. The second decided that because they couldn't believe in childish images of hell, they must be universalists."
Author: N. T. Wright

It was the most polarized body since the end of Reconstruction, according to one study, and I grew embarrassed by its partisan bickering, inactivity, and refusal to address the vital challenges facing America."
Author: Olympia Snowe
33. "Augustine says that you don't understand a nation by the throw weight of its military or the strength of its research universities or the size of its population, but by looking at what it loves in common. To assess a nation, you look at the health and strength of its ideals. And there's no question that the common love in America is freedom."
Author: Os Guinness

Author: Peter Farrelly
35. "The numerals 666 are most often identified with the Beast of Revelation, but they are also symbolic of the fact that we live in a carbon-based universe.  An atom of carbon features six protons, six neutrons and six electrons.  In other words, this universe we live in is coded in 666 by the very nature of what it is."
Author: Peter Moon

Today out on the limb(The limb he thinks he can't climb down from)He mewed until I heard him in the house.I climbed up to get him down: he mewed.What he says and what he sees are limited.My own response is even more constricted.I think, "It's lucky; what you have is too."What do you have except--well, me?I joke about it but it's not a joke;The house and I are all he remembers.Next month how will he guess that it is winterAnd not just entropy, the universePlunging at last into its cold decline?I cannot think of him without a pang.Poor rumpled thing, why don't you seeThat you have no more, really, than a man?Men aren't happy; why are you?"
Author: Randall Jarrell

Author: Ray Bradbury
39. "It is also worth noting that one can obtain a Ph.D. in any branch of science for no other purpose than to make cynical use of scientific language in an effort to rationalize the glaring inadequacies of tbe Bible. A handful of Christians appear to have done this; some have even obtained their degrees from reputable universities. No doubt, others will follow in their footsteps. While such people are technically "scientists," they are not behaving like scientists. They simply are not engaged in an honest inquiry into the nature of the universe. And their proclamations about God and the failures of Darwinism do not in the least signify that there is a legitimate scientific controversy about evolution."
Author: Sam Harris
40. "The owner of the store was a Hungarian woman named Jules. I hadn't started the conversation with her, rather she invited herself to sit with me one day. I didn't want to be rude so I let her babble on about herself. It turned out she was a Reiki healer. Her coffee shop was also a bookstore and a studio for her healing sessions. She explained the fundamentals of being a healer by allowing the energy to flow through her hands, power she called upon from the Universe. She was a bit eccentric but I really liked her from the few times I had spoken with her. And she was the closest thing to a friend I had. Sad, I know."
Author: Shawnda Currie
41. "From Love Under a Dark Sky: "In the universe vastWe share a simple feastAmong creatures equally earthbound.Let us raise our hearts in gratitude,Our eyes in expectationOf a greater supper yetIn heavenly realms."
Author: Shellie Foltz
42. "As in all infant sciences, the universal habit of the human mind - to take a partial or local truth, generalise it unduly and try to explain a whole field of nature in its narrow terms - runs riot here (in psychoanalysis). Moreover, the exaggeration of the importance of suppressed sexual complexes is a dangerous falsehood."
Author: Śrī Aurobindo
43. "Let us then, my brethren, endure in hope. Let us devote ourselves, side-by-side with our hoping, so that the God of all the universe, as he beholds our intention, may cleanse us from all sins, fill us with high hopes from what we have in hand, and grant us the change of heart that saves. God has called you, and you have your calling."
Author: St. Cyril
44. "Time is a keyhole, he thought as he looked up at the stars. Yes, I think so. We sometimes bend and peer through it. And the wind we feel on our cheeks when we do - the wind that blows through the keyhole- is the breath of all the living universe."
Author: Stephen King

Author: Stephen King
46. "The universe is big, its vast and complicated, and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles. And that's the theory. Nine hundred years, never seen one yet, but this would do me."

47. "If you take the long view, the universe is just something small and round, like those water filled balls which produce a miniature snowstorm when you shake them. * Although, unless the ineffable plan is a lot more ineffable than it's given credit for, it does not have a giant plastic snowman at the bottom."
Author: Terry Pratchett
48. "You try and act so tough, you think you're so damn hopeless and godless and faithless, but you don't fool me. People without hope aren't tormented by the world the way you are. People without hope don't give a shit. but I see it in you, in the way you look at things, even in the way you look at me sometimes, like I'm the coolest fucking guy in the universe, and I know it's in there. Reverence. Belief. Something. You have a lot more faith than you own up to. You just don't want to be let down. But I'm not going to let you down again. Not if I can help it."
Author: Tiffanie DeBartolo
49. "A person should always think before they speak...especially words that will hurt & destroy. Once you have spewed words of harm out into the universe...you can never retrieve them. Always try to use your words to better brighten humanity...not to further darken it."
Author: Timothy Pina
50. "Not only is the Universe stranger than we think, it is stranger than we can think."
