The only person who ever said anything that made sense about God to me

was Aeschylus, when he said, hapant'epachthei plein theoinesi choiranein, eleutheros gar outis esti plein Dios.

"All things are brudensome, except for the gods to bring about, for none is free, save Zeus."

Of the gods sitting in a holy throne, grace [comes] somehow violent.

Aeschylus, Agamemnon, 182-83
