I think this is right, but there were a few out of order/extra characters:

God made everything out of nothing but the nothing shows through.

I was a vegetarian until I started leaning toward the sunlight.

Rogues are preferable to imbeciles because they sometimes take a rest.

You just missed the 'ness' which is quite easy to do. The God quote is from Paul Valery (1871 - 1945)
