I rather like my comment on God when my wife had her stroke and was in a  
coma for two weeks, thus causing one of her sisters to comment that "God has a  
reason for this."  My response was, "If your idiot God knew what he was  doing 
in the first place she would not be here!"

Here are some of my favorite quotes from
Meister Eckhart (c.1260âc.1328,  German mystic):

"God is exempt from all things and he is
all  things."

"He who thinks that he sees God, if he
see aught sees  naught of God."

"I do not find God outside myself nor
conceive him  excepting as my own and in me."

"If I were not, God would not be  God."

"All creatures are pure nothingness. I
do not say they are  small or
petty: they are pure nothingness.p

"The being [of  things] is God."

"The being and the nature of God are
mine. . . .  the spark in the soul is beyond
time and space; the soul's
light is  uncreated and cannot be created, it
takes possession of God with no  mediation; the
core of the soul and the core of God are one."

"Why I  pray God to rid me of God is because
conditionless being is above God and  above

"God works, the Godhead does no  work."
