Heaven Quotes

If heaven is the reason and dieing is the door, than why aren't we all leaving what's the drama for?

Ralston Bowles

Do not all charms fly at the mere touch of cold philosophy? There was an awful rainbow once in heaven: we know her woof, her texture; she is given in the dull catalogue of common things. Philosophy will clip an angel's wings, conquer all mysteries by rule and line, empty the haunted air, and gnome mine unweave a rainbow.

John Keats

The philosopher is Nature's pilot. And there you have our difference: to be n hell is to drift: to be in heaven is to steer.

George Bernard Shaw

We will never walk away from Israel ... Many of us are worried about heaven. Heaven is your reward. You are here as soldiers to take on the enemy.

William G. Boykin

I knew the Spring was come. I knew it even Better than all by this, that through my chase In bush and stone and hill and sea and heaven I seem'd to see and follow still your face. Your face my quarry was. For it I rode, My horse a thing of wings, myself a god.

Wilfrid Scawen Blunt

The Way of Heaven does not compete, And yet it skillfully achieves victory. It does not speak, and yet it skillfully responds to things. It comes to you without your invitation

Lao-Tzu

Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.

Rabindranath Tagore

He came, and no man knew it; no man knew The wondrous boon to Scotland given; That therebeneath that grim and wintry blue A glorious Poet, strong and true, Had newly dropp'd from heaven!

John Stanyan Bigg

Despair is the damp of hell, as joy is the serenity of heaven

John Donne

The beauty and genius of a work of art may be reconceived, though its first material expression be destroyed; a vanished harmony may yet again inspire the composer; but when the last individual of a race of living beings breathes no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again.

Charles William ("Will") Beebe

If it were not for the intellectual snobs who pay, in solid cash, the tribute which Philistinism owes to culture, the arts would perish with their starving practitioners. Let us thank heaven for hypocrisy.

Aldous Huxley

There are two sorts of hypocrites: one that are deceived with their outward morality and external religion; many of whom are professed Arminians, in the doctrine of justification: and the other, are those that are deceived with false discoveries and elevations; who often cry down works, and men's own righteousness, and talk much of free grace; but at the same time make a righteousness of their discoveries and of their humiliation, and exalt themselves to heaven with them

Jonathan Edwards

The human heart is like a ship on a stormy sea driven about by winds blowing from all four corners of heaven.

Martin Luther King Jr

Yes, it is a truth that for a good man, honored, beloved, useful, with all around him that God ever gives to His children here; nay, with all that God could give him of earth, it would be " gain " to die. Heaven is a better, a happier, a more desirable world than this is or can be.

Every charitable act is a stepping stone towards heaven.

Henry Ward Beecher

A revelation, that may be supposed to be really of the institution of God, must also be supposed to be perfectly consistent or uniform, and to be able to stand the test of truth; therefore such pretended revelations, as are tendered to us as the contrivance of heaven, which do not bear that test, we may be morally certain, was either originally a deception, or has since, by adulteration become spurious. Reason therefore must be the standard by which we determine the respective claims of revelation; for otherwise we may as well subscribe to the divinity of the one as of the other, or to the whole of them, or to none at all.

Ethan Allen

The miracle on earth are the laws of heaven.

Jean Paul

A good conscience is the best looking-glass of heaven.

Ralph Cudworth

Heaven never helps the man who will not act.

Sophocles

Courage leads to heaven; fear leads to death.

Seneca

On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.

Jules Renard

The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground.
