„The universe is the bible of a true Theophilanthropist. It is there that he reads of God.“

—  Thomas Paine English and American political activist 1737 - 1809

1790s, Discourse to the Theophilanthropists (1798)
Contesto: The universe is the bible of a true Theophilanthropist. It is there that he reads of God. It is there that the proofs of his existence are to be sought and to be found. As to written or printed books, by whatever name they are called, they are the works of man's hands, and carry no evidence in themselves that God is the author of any of them. It must be in something that man could not make, that we must seek evidence for our belief, and that something is the universe; the true bible; the inimitable word, of God.

„It was like no hell or heaven of which he had ever heard or read, and he had thought that he was acquainted with every theory of the afterlife.“

—  Philip José Farmer American science fiction writer 1918 - 2009

Origine: The Riverworld series, To Your Scattered Bodies Go (1971), Chapter 1 (pp. 3-4)
Contesto: It was like no hell or heaven of which he had ever heard or read, and he had thought that he was acquainted with every theory of the afterlife.
He had died. Now he was alive. He had scoffed all his life at a life-after-death. For once, he could not deny that he had been wrong. But there was no one present to say, "I told you so, you damned infidel!"
Of all the millions, he alone was awake.
