Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.
C. S. Lewis

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.

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.
Jesus Christ

Ignorance is the curse of God; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven.
