„Work like a slave; command like a king; create like a god.“

Original in Romanian:
Muncește ca un sclav, poruncește ca un rege, creează ca un zeu.

„He is no God of love, no justice of a little city like
Dante's Florence, no anthropoid God
Making commandments: this is the God who does not
care and will never cease.“

—  Robinson Jeffers American poet 1887 - 1962

"The Great Explosion" in the posthumous publication The Beginning and the End (1973)
Kontext: He is no God of love, no justice of a little city like
Dante's Florence, no anthropoid God
Making commandments: this is the God who does not
care and will never cease. Look at the seas there
Flashing against this rock in the darkness — look at the
tide-stream stars — and the fall of nations — and dawn
Wandering with wet white feet down the Carmel Valley
to meet the sea. These are real and we see their beauty.
The great explosion is probably only a metaphor — I know
not — of faceless violence, the root of all things.

„The third stage is the transformation to a divine-like existence, into a unity of the created spirit with the very being of the spirit of God“

—  Johannes Tauler German theologian 1300 - 1361

Sermons, Sermon 3
Kontext: Now we intend to talk about The transformation to a divine-like existence, into a unity of the created spirit with the very being of the spirit of God - this one can call a conversion to an essentially higher plane the three stages that a person can be at - the lowest, the middle, or the highest. The first stage of an interior virtuous life that leads one directly to close proximity to God happens when a person turns to the marvelous works and signs of inexpressible gifts and effusions of the hidden goodness of God.
Out of this is born a state of soul called jubilatio. The second stage is poverty of spirit and a strange abandonment by God that leaves the spirit tortured and naked.
The third stage is the transformation to a divine-like existence, into a unity of the created spirit with the very being of the spirit of God.
This one can call a conversion to an essentially higher plane.
And one cannot imagine that those who right reach this stage could ever fall away from God.

„But if cattle and horses and lions had hands
or could paint with their hands and create works such as men do,
horses like horses and cattle like cattle
also would depict the gods' shapes and make their bodies
of such a sort as the form they themselves have.“

Fragment 15 (D-K)
Originál: (el) ἀλλ᾽ εἰ χεῖρας ἔχον βόες <ἵπποι τ᾽> ἠὲ λέοντες
ἢ γράψαι χείρεσσι καὶ ἔργα τελεῖν ἅπερ ἄνδρες,
ἵπποι μέν θ᾽ ἵπποισι βόες δέ τε βουσὶν ὁμοίας
καί <κε> θεῶν ἰδέας ἔγραφον καὶ σώματ᾽ ἐποίουν
τοιαῦθ᾽ οἷόν περ καὐτοὶ δέμας εἶχον <ἕκαστοι>.

„War is the father and king of all: some he has made gods, and some men; some slaves and some free.“

—  Heraclitus pre-Socratic Greek philosopher -535

Originál: (el) Πόλεμος πάντων μὲν πατήρ ἐστι πάντων δὲ βασιλεύς, καὶ τοὺς μὲν θεοὺς ἔδειξε τοὺς δὲ ἀνθρώπους, τοὺς μὲν δούλους ἐποίησε τοὺς δὲ ἐλευθέρους.

„It is not sufficient to say, "God spake and it was so." For the natures of things that are created ought to harmonise with the commands of God.“

—  Julian (emperor), kniha Against the Galilaeans

Against the Galilaeans (c. 362)
Kontext: It is not sufficient to say, "God spake and it was so." For the natures of things that are created ought to harmonise with the commands of God. I will say more clearly what I mean. Did God ordain that fire should mount upwards by chance and earth sink down? Was it not necessary, in order that the ordinance of God should be fulfilled, for the former to be light and the latter to weigh heavy? And in the case of other things also this is equally true.

„Likeness to God is the supreme gift.“

—  William Ellery Channing United States Unitarian clergyman 1780 - 1842

"Likeness to God", an address in Providence, Rhode Island (1828)
Kontext: Likeness to God is the supreme gift. He can communicate nothing so precious, glorious, blessed, as himself. To hold intellectual and moral affinity with the Supreme Being, to partake his spirit, to be his children by derivations of kindred excellence, to bear a growing conformity to the perfection which we adore, this is a felicity which obscures and annihilates all other good.
It is only in proportion to this likeness, that we can enjoy either God or the universe.
