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.
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.
On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.
Ignorance is the curse of God; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven.
The Bible shows the way to go to heaven, not the way the heavens go.
A happy family is but an earlier heaven.
George Bernard Shaw
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.
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.
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
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.
Her angel's face, As the great eye of heaven shined bright, And made a sunshine in the shady place.
You have to go on and be crazy. Craziness is like heaven.
They say marriages are made in Heaven. But so is thunder and lightning.
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.
Did universal charity prevail, earth would be a heaven, and hell a fable.
Charles Caleb Colton
Every parting is a form of death, as every reunion is a type of heaven.
Ye stars! which are the poetry of heaven!
If God has given you the world's goods in abundance, it is to help you gain those of Heaven and to be a good example of sound teaching to your sons, servants, and relatives.
The way to Heaven is ascending; we must be content to travel uphill, though it be hard and tiresome, and contrary to the natural bias of our flesh.
We talk about heaven being so far away. It is within speaking distance to those who belong there. Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people.
Dwight L. Moody
I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over everything. The sun came up like gold through the trees, and I felt like I was in heaven.
We are more thoroughly an enlightened people, with respect to our political interests, than perhaps any other under heaven. Every man among us reads, and is so easy in his circumstances as to have leisure for conversations of improvement and for acquiring information.
William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.

The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts.
C. S. Lewis
