I saw my parents as gods whose every wish must be obeyed or I would suffer the penalty of anguish and guilt.
Science is only truly consistent with an atheistic worldview with regards to the claimed miracles of the gods of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
Lawrence M. Krauss
Thank the Gods! My misery exceeds all my hopes!
No one else holds or has held the place in the heart of the world which Jesus holds. Other gods have been as devoutly worshipped; no other man has been so devoutly loved.
All the gods are dead except the god of war.
Every movement that slays its gods creates new ones, of course. I loathe talk of the sixties and seventies being a 'Greatest Generation' of artists, but if we're going to use such idiotic appellations, let this one also be applied to the artists, curators, and gallerists who emerged in the first half of the nineties.
No man who is not willing to help himself has any right to apply to his friends, or to the gods.
'Frankenstein' was all about the idea that, through electricity and the destruction of night, man creating light and darkness, we took on god-like powers and then abused them like gods, and we are only men. That's a story about man making a man in his own image. The inversion of natural order.

God is one, greatest of gods and men, not like mortals in body or thought.

Fate is never too generous even to its favorites. Rarely do the gods grant a mortal more than one immortal deed.
It is great good health to believe, as the Hindus do, that there are 33 million gods and goddesses in the world. It is great good health to want to understand one's dreams. It is great good health to desire the ambiguous and paradoxical.
Compound interest is proof of gods existence.
The gods did not reveal, from the beginning, all things to us.
To a degree, the Greek and Roman mythological heroes are just the first superheroes. They appeal to children for much the same reason. These gods and heroes may have powers, but they get angry and they do the wrong thing. They are human too.
