Quote of the Day
On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.
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.
Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company.
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.
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.
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.
Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.
Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.
C. S. Lewis
They say marriages are made in Heaven. But so is thunder and lightning.
If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.
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.
The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
The intellect of the wise is like glass; it admits the light of heaven and reflects it.
You have to go on and be crazy. Craziness is like heaven.
God's plan for enlarging His kingdom is so simple - one person telling another about the Savior. Yet we're busy and full of excuses. Just remember, someone's eternal destiny is at stake. The joy you'll have when you meet that person in heaven will far exceed any discomfort you felt in sharing the gospel.
We were born to die and we die to live. As seedlings of God, we barely blossom on earth; we fully flower in heaven.
Russell M. Nelson
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
Sincerity is the way to heaven.
Your days are short here; this is the last of your springs. And now in the serenity and quiet of this lovely place, touch the depths of truth, feel the hem of Heaven. You will go away with old, good friends. And don't forget when you leave why you came.
Adlai E. Stevenson
Free will carried many a soul to hell, but never a soul to heaven.
I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it - but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend.
If Heaven exists, to know that there's laughter, that would be a great thing.
May He who is the Brahman of the Hindus, the Ahura-Mazda of the Zoroastrians, the Buddha of the Buddhists, the Jehovah of the Jews, the Father in Heaven of the Christians give strength to you to carry out your noble idea.
To love yourself right now, just as you are, is to give yourself heaven. Don't wait until you die. If you wait, you die now. If you love, you live now.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
