  • I am an atheist and my favorite spiritual quote comes from Thomas Jefferson

    "Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear."

  • [28] Have you not known? Have you not heard?
    The LORD is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
    He does not faint or grow weary;
    his understanding is unsearchable.
    [29] He gives power to the faint,
    and to him who has no might he increases strength.
    [30] Even youths shall faint and be weary,
    and young men shall fall exhausted;
    [31] but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;
    they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
    they shall run and not be weary;
    they shall walk and not faint.
    (Isaiah 40:28-31 ESV)
