„What if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yes, let God be true, but every man a liar“

—  Paul of Tarsus Early Christian apostle and missionary 5 - 67
Context: What if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yes, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man) God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world? For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner? And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just. Romans, 3:3-8 -

„True love's the gift which God has given
To man alone beneath the heaven“

—  Walter Scott Scottish historical novelist, playwright, and poet 1771 - 1832
Context: True love's the gift which God has given To man alone beneath the heaven: It is not fantasy's hot fire, Whose wishes, soon as granted, fly; It liveth not in fierce desire, With dead desire it doth not die; It is the secret sympathy, The silver link, the silken tie, Which heart to heart, and mind to mind In body and in soul can bind. Canto V, stanza 13.
