C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Infinite
 
  The thirst for the infinite proves infinity.
Victor Hugo.    
  1
  Finite mind cannot comprehend infinity.
Jeremiah Seed.    
  2
  God has thickly strewn infinity with grandeur.
Alexander Smith.    
  3
  The finite is annihilated in the presence of infinity, and becomes a simple nothing.
Pascal.    
  4
  It is only the finite that has wrought and suffered; the infinite lies stretched in smiling repose.
Emerson.    
  5
  Infinity is the retirement to which perfect love and wisdom only dwell with God. In infinity and eternity the skeptic sees an abyss in which all is lost. I see in them the residence of Almighty power, in which my reason and my wishes find equally a firm support. Here, holding by the pillars of heaven, I exist—I stand fast.
Miller.    
  6
  That which we foolishly call vastness is, rightly considered, not more wonderful, not more impressive, than that which we insolently call littleness; and the infinity of God is not mysterious, it is only unfathomable, not concealed, but incomprehensible: it is a clear infinity, the darkness of the pure, unsearchable sea.
Ruskin.
