This act [creation], as it is for God, must always remain totally inconceivable to man. For we–even our poets and musicians and inventors–never, in the ultimate sense make. We only build. We always have materials to build from. All we can know about the act of creation must be derived from what we can gather about the relation of the creatures to their Creator. –  C.S. Lewis

In essence, String Theory describes space and time, matter and energy, gravity and light, indeed all of God’s creation… as music. –  Roy H. Williams

The artist must be in his work as God is in creation, invisible and all-powerful; one must sense him everywhere but never see him. –  Gustave Flaubert

History is a vision of God’s creation on the move. –  Arnold J. Toynbee
