"'if they are fools, who deny the existence of God in their hearts, those appear to me even more senseless who first want to prove it.'"

     Johann Georg Hamann, as quoted by John R. Betz, in “Hamann before Kierkegaard: a systematic theological oversight,” Pro ecclesia 16, no. 3 (Summer 2007): 317, italics mine.  This is because "'faith arises as little from reasons as tasting and seeing do'" (italics original (to Betz, at least)).
