Anselm of Canterbury
:

God is, by definition, a being greater than anything that can be imagined. Existence both in reality and in imagination is greater than existence solely in one’s imagination. Therefore, God must exist in reality: if God did not, God would not be a being greater than anything that can be imagined.

Epicurus:

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?
