Quote of the Day
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.
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.
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.
You have to go on and be crazy. Craziness is like heaven.
Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.
C. S. Lewis
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.
Of all the music that reached farthest into heaven, it is the beating of a loving heart.
Henry Ward Beecher
Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend.
Ignorance is the curse of God; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven.
The intellect of the wise is like glass; it admits the light of heaven and reflects it.
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.
Marriage is neither heaven nor hell, it is simply purgatory.
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
They say marriages are made in Heaven. But so is thunder and lightning.
Her angel's face, As the great eye of heaven shined bright, And made a sunshine in the shady place.
A happy family is but an earlier heaven.
George Bernard Shaw
If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.
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.
To love the one who loves you, To admire the one who admires you, In a word, to be the idol of one's idol, Is exceeding the limit of human joy; It is stealing fire from heaven.
Delphine de Girardin
The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
