Often I come across the public displays of charitable acts and donations on social media, which reminds me of the teaching from Holy Book: “Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.“ In my view, it's an act of hypocracy to blow one's trumpet on FB or Twitter or like social media about one's charitable act, with ulterior motives of self-promotion and gaining praise from others. In my view, the true philanthropist, who is selfless at heart, does not let her/his left hand know what the right hand is doing - so that the noble act of giving remains absolutely secret. I really respect such selfless philanthropists. Long live the spirit of Charity that flows from a pure heart with Honesty and Integrity.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

There is only one thing that arouses animals more than pleasure, and that is pain. Under torture you are as if under the dominion of those grasses that produce visions. Everything you have heard told, everything you have read returns to your mind, as if you were being transported, not toward heaven, but toward hell. Under torture you say not only what the inquisitor wants, but also what you imagine might please him, because a bond (this, truly, diabolical) is established between you and him.

Umberto Eco

O, my offence is rank, it smells to heaven It hath the primal eldest curse upon 't, A brother's murder.

William Shakespeare

The quality of mercy is not strained It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath. It is twice blessed- It blesseth him that gives, and him that takes.

William Shakespeare

When I die, I hope to go to Heaven, whatever the Hell that is.

Ayn Rand

To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven.

Karen Sunde

Be ever questioning. Ignorance is not bliss. It is oblivion. You don't go to heaven if you die dumb. Become better informed. Lean from others' mistakes. You could not live long enough to make them all yourself.

Hyman Rickover

The heaven that rolls around cries aloud to you while it displays its eternal beauties, and yet your eyes are fixed upon the earth alone.

One single grateful thought raised to heaven is the most perfect prayer.

G. E. Lessing

...to emphasize the afterlife is to deny life. To concentrate on Heaven is to create hell. In their desperate longing to transcend the disorderliness, friction, and unpredictability that pesters life; in their desire for a fresh start in a tidy habitat, germ-free and secured by angels, religious multitudes are gambling the only life they may ever have on a dark horse in a race that has no finish line."

Tom Robbins, _Skinny Legs and All_, 1990, p. 305.

Leighton
