Quote of the Day
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.
When virtue and modesty enlighten her charms, the lustre of a beautiful woman is brighter than the stars of heaven, and the influence of her power it is in vain to resist.
On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.
But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company.
Hence the saying: If you know the enemy and you know yourself, your victory will not stand in doubt; if you know Heaven and you know Earth, you may make your victory complete.
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
HIV does not make people dangerous to know, so you can shake their hands and give them a hug: Heaven knows they need it.
Ignorance is the curse of God; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven.
Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.
C. S. Lewis
The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.
A happy family is but an earlier heaven.
George Bernard Shaw
You have to go on and be crazy. Craziness is like heaven.
Her angel's face, As the great eye of heaven shined bright, And made a sunshine in the shady place.
To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower Hold infinity in the palms of your hand and eternity in an hour.
Heaven and hell suppose two distinct species of men, the good and the bad. But the greatest part of mankind float betwixt vice and virtue.
They say marriages are made in Heaven. But so is thunder and lightning.
God has two dwellings; one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart.
Ye stars! which are the poetry of heaven!
Every parting is a form of death, as every reunion is a type of heaven.
I live for those who love me, for those who know me true, for the heaven so blue above me, and the good that I can do.
George Linnaeus Banks
Sometimes, idealistic people are put off the whole business of networking as something tainted by flattery and the pursuit of selfish advantage. But virtue in obscurity is rewarded only in Heaven. To succeed in this world you have to be known to people.
I don't believe in an afterlife, so I don't have to spend my whole life fearing hell, or fearing heaven even more. For whatever the tortures of hell, I think the boredom of heaven would be even worse.
The assurance of Heaven is never given to the person. And that's why at the core of the Christian faith is the grace of God. If there's one word I would grab from all of that, it's forgiveness - that you can be forgiven. I can be forgiven, and it is of the grace of God. But once you understand that, I think the ramifications are worldwide.
I don't like to commit myself about heaven and hell - you see, I have friends in both places.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
