A Quote by Christian Gauss on civilization, facts, force, god, good, humanity, religion, science, and suffering

Any God who is to be of any use to civilization, to suffering humanity, or to religion must have in some way or other some at least of the attributes not of a substance or of a force but of a person. He must be interested as science is not in good and beautiful and holy. . . . Let us face the facts and admit as some do not that there are some services to civilization which science cannot render.
