Better reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven.

John Milton, Paradise Lost

Jesus Christ

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven; for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Jesus Christ

Blessed be childhood which brings down something of heaven into the midst of our rough earthliness.

Henri F. Amiel

Boys are found everywhere-on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket.

Alan Marshall Beck

But of all plagues, good Heaven, thy wrath can send, Save me, oh, save me, from the candid friend.

David Bissonette

But thousands die without or this or that, die, and endow a college, or a cat: To some, indeed, Heaven grants the happier fate, Tenrich a bastard, or a son they hate.

Alexander Pope

Dance like nobody's watching Love like you've never been hurt Sing like nobody's listening Live like it's heaven on earth

William W. Purkey

Destiny is but a phrase of the weak human heart - the dark apology for every error. The strong and virtuous admit no destiny. On earth conscience guides; in heaven God watches. And destiny is but the phantom we invoke to silence the one and dethrone the other.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton

Divorces are made in heaven.

Oscar Wilde

Do not ask God the way to heaven; he will show you the hardest one.

Stanislaw J. Lec

Do not dismayed daughters, at the number of things which you have to consider before setting out on this divine journey, which is the royal road to heaven. By taking this road we gain such precious treasures that it is no wonder if the cost seems to us a high one. The time will come when we shall realize that all we have paid has been nothing at all by comparison with the greatness of our prizes.

Teresa of Ávila

Eternity has nothing to do with the hereafter... This is it... If you don't get it here, you won't get it anywhere. The experience of eternity right here and now is the function of life. Heaven is not the place to have the experience here's the place to have the experience.

Joseph Campbell

Henry Ward Beecher

Every man is as Heaven made him, and sometimes a great deal worse.

Miguel de Cervantes
