My all-time favorite verse of scripture

Whence this creation has arisen—perhaps it formed itself, or perhaps it did not—the one who looks down on it, in the highest heaven, only he knows—or perhaps he does not know.
Rig Veda 10.129.7 (Nāsadīya), from The Rig Veda, tr. Wendy Doniger (New York: Penguin, 1981).
