Omnipotence

A Quote by Thomas Carlyle on unhappiness, greatness, omnipotence, finite, universe, shadow, and sunshine

Man's Unhappiness... comes of his Greatness; it is because there is an Infinite in him, with which all his cunning he cannot quite bury under the Finite... Try him with half of a Universe, of an Omnipotence, he sets to quarreling with the proprietor of the other half, and declares himself the most maltreated of men. Always there is a black spot in our sunshine: It is... the Shadow of Ourselves.

Thomas Carlyle (1795 - 1881)

A Quote by Epicurus on god, omnipotence, malevolence, evil, omnipotent, and malevolent

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then He is not omnipotent. Is He able, but not willing? Then He is malevolent. Is He both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is He neither able nor willing? Then why call Him God?

Epicurus (c. 341 - c. 270 BC)
