I do love one-upmanship sometimes, like when you see kids breakdancing and who can do the best tricks. It's common, it's in our nature as animals, like the birds of paradise who've got the best feathers and that sort of stuff. But it's fun when it's impulsive and it's about fun.
The heart of man is, so to speak, the paradise of God.
The Earth - from our altitude at Hubble, we're 350 miles up. We can see the curvature. We can see the roundness of our home, our home planet. And it's the most magnificent thing I've ever seen. It's like looking into Heaven. It's paradise.
Michael J. Massimino

The notion that the 'leader' has the right to ask huge sacrifices of your generation for a notional future paradise - if you'd be good enough to lie down under the wheels of the juggernaut - that sentimental and self-aggrandising rationalisation for brute force and cowardice I felt from adolescence was wrong.
Scientific truth is marvelous, but moral truth is divine and whoever breathes its air and walks by its light has found the lost paradise.
If we could make our house a home, and then make it a sanctuary, I think we could truly find paradise on Earth.
He that does good for good's sake seeks neither paradise nor reward, but he is sure of both in the end.
Oxford, the paradise of dead philosophies.
Those who promise us paradise on earth never produced anything but a hell.
The first pages of memory are like the old family Bible. The first leaves are wholly faded and somewhat soiled with handling. But, when we turn further, and come to the chapters where Adam and Eve were banished from Paradise, then, all begins to grow clear and legible.
We must prefer real hell to an imaginary paradise.
Utility is when you have one telephone, luxury is when you have two, opulence is when you have three - and paradise is when you have none.
Recollection is the only paradise from which we cannot be turned out.
He who aspires to paradise should learn to deal with people with kindness.
The myths have always condemned those who 'looked back.' Condemned them, whatever the paradise may have been which they were leaving. Hence this shadow over each departure from your decision.
America is beyond power; it acts as in a dream, as a face of God. Wherever America is, there is freedom, and wherever America is not, madness rules with chains, darkness strangles millions. Beneath her patient bombers, paradise is possible.
