Heaven quotes by A.S. Byatt
#1. What is read and understood and contemplated and intellectually grasped is our own, madam, to live and work with. A lifetime's study will not make accessible to us more than a fragment of our own ancestral past, let alone the aeons before our race was formed. But that fragment we must thoroughly possess and hand on. Hoc opus, hic labor est. There is, I am tempted to assert, no easy way, no short cut: we are, in attempting those, like Bunyan's Ignorance who found a path to Hell at the very gate of the City of Heaven. #Quote by A.S. Byatt
Heaven quotes by Don Piper
#2. None of the hymns that filled the air were about Jesus' sacrifice or death. I heard no sad songs and instinctively knew that there are no sad songs in heaven. #Quote by Don Piper
Heaven quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#3. According to Keltar legend, each Druid born into the clan was destined for a soul mate, a perfect match in heart and mind, as well as body, coming together with an explosive, incendiary passion that could not be denied. If the Keltar male exchanged the sacred Druid binding vows with his true love, and his mate willingly returned them, they could bind their souls together for all eternity, in this life and forever beyond. The vows linked them inextricably. 'Twas said if a Keltar gave the vows and they were not returned, he would be forever incomplete, missing a part of his heart, aching for the love of a woman he could never have, eternally bound to her, through this life and all his future existence, whether in the cycle of rebirth, heaven, hell, or even an eternal Unseelie prison. If aught must be lost ... the legendary vows began, 'twill be my life for yours ... #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Heaven quotes by Christopher Morley
#4. Lord! when you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book. #Quote by Christopher Morley
Heaven quotes by Tracy Chevalier
#5. What's funny about opposites be that wet and dry both has water, boy and girl be about people, Heaven and Hell be the places you go when you die. They all has something in common. So they an't completely different from each other the way people think. Having the one don't mean t'other be gone. #Quote by Tracy Chevalier
Heaven quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#6. Forth from his dark and lonely hiding-place, (Portentous sight!) the owlet Atheism, sailing on obscene wings athwart the noon, drops his blue-fringed lids, and holds them close, and hooting at the glorious sun in Heaven, cries out, 'Where is it?' #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Heaven quotes by Shannan Jacoby
#7. Love is like an unfathomable idea. An idea that is slightly above euphoria, yet a fingers width from heaven. #Quote by Shannan Jacoby
Heaven quotes by Heinrich Heine
#8. Sweet May hath come to love us,
Flowers, trees, their blossoms don;
And through the blue heavens above us
The very clouds move on. #Quote by Heinrich Heine
Heaven quotes by Sylvia Day
#9. Heaven with my angel. It doesn't get any better than this. #Quote by Sylvia Day
Heaven quotes by Helen Schucman
#10. Father, we do not know the way to You. But we have called, and You have answered us. We will not interfere. Salvation's ways are not our own, for they belong to You. And it is unto You we look for them. Our hands are open to receive Your gifts. We have no thoughts we think apart from You and cherish no beliefs of what we are or who created us. Yours is the way that we would find and follow. And we ask but that Your Will, which is our own as well, be done in us and in the world, that it becomes a part of Heaven now. Amen. Lesson #Quote by Helen Schucman
Heaven quotes by Pythagoras
#11. The stars in the heavens sing a music, if only we had ears to hear #Quote by Pythagoras
Heaven quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#12. Heaven and hell seem out of proportion to me: the actions of men do not deserve so much. #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Heaven quotes by Sarah Silverman
#13. You can be Hitler and go to confession and say forgive me, Father, I killed six million Jews, and the priest would just be like no problem. Say 10 Heil Marys. And Hitler goes to heaven. #Quote by Sarah Silverman
Heaven quotes by Elizabeth Von Arnim
#14. I have been much afflicted again lately by visitors ... and they gave me to understand that if they had had the arranging of the garden it would have been finished long ago - whereas I don't believe a garden is ever finished. They have all gone now, thank heaven. #Quote by Elizabeth Von Arnim
Heaven quotes by Eden Ahbez
#15. I am a being of Heaven and Earth, of thunder and lightning, of rain and wind, of the galaxies. #Quote by Eden Ahbez
Heaven quotes by Pirkei Avot
#16. Compassion is the feeling of sympathy which the pain of one being awakens in another; and the higher and more human the beings are, the more keenly attuned they are to re-echo the note of suffering, which, like a voice from heaven, penetrates the heart, bringing all creatures a proof of their kinship in the universal God. And as for man, whose function it is to show respect and love for God's universe and all its creatures, his heart has been created so tender that it feels with the whole organic world ... mourning even for fading flowers; so that, if nothing else, the very nature of his heart must teach him that he is required above everything to fe the brother of all beings, and to recognize the claim of all beings to his love and his beneficence.
Horeb, Chapter 17, Verse 125 #Quote by Pirkei Avot
Heaven quotes by Christopher West
#17. In the sacraments, spirit and matter "kiss." Heaven and earth embrace in a union that will never end. #Quote by Christopher West
Heaven quotes by Lao-Tzu
#18. There was something undifferentiated and yet complete, which existed before Heaven and Earth. Soundless and formless, it depends on nothing and does not change. It operates everywhere and is free from danger. It may be considered the mother of the universe. I do not know its name; I call it Tao. #Quote by Lao-Tzu
Heaven quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#19. Selena was born in a generation that had grown up on the edge. She'd grown up knowing that the little child starlet who voiced Anne-Marie on 'All Dogs Go to Heaven', Judith Barsi, had been murdered and set on fire by her own father. She'd grown up knowing that school shootings were more common than winning the lottery. She'd grown up in an age of terror. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Heaven quotes by J. Oswald Sanders
#20. Jesus was the meeting place of eternity and time, the blending of deity and humanity, the junction of heaven and earth. #Quote by J. Oswald Sanders
Heaven quotes by Ayn Rand
#21. Ask yourself whether the dream of heaven and greatness should be left waiting for us in our graves-or whether it should be ours here and now and on this earth. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Heaven quotes by John Milton
#22. Better to reign in Hell, than to serve in Heaven. #Quote by John Milton
Heaven quotes by George Whitefield
#23. Works? Works? A man get to heaven by works? I would as soon think of climbing to the moon on a rope of sand! #Quote by George Whitefield
Heaven quotes by Tom Robbins
#24. A lot of life boils down to the question of whether a person is going to be able to realize his fantasies, or else end up surviving only through compromises he can't face up to. The way I figure it, Heaven and Hell are right here on Earth. Heaven is living in your hopes and Hell is living in your fears. It's up to each individual which one he chooses. - Bonanza Jellybean #Quote by Tom Robbins
Heaven quotes by Nancy Tillman
#25. Heaven blew every trumpet and played every horn on the wonderful, marvelous night you were born. #Quote by Nancy Tillman
Heaven quotes by Manreet Sodhi Someshwar
#26. With love you could persuade a Pathan to go to Hell, but by force you couldn't even take him to Heaven. #Quote by Manreet Sodhi Someshwar
Heaven quotes by John Milton
#27. Nor aught availed him now to have built in heaven high towers; nor did he scrape by all his engines, but was headlong sent with his industrious crew to build in hell. #Quote by John Milton
Heaven quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#28. Did he suggest taking you for a walk in the moonlight?"
"How did you know?"
Virginia sighed. "That's what he does. I think it's a kind of challenge for him-to see if he can get young women to let him steal a kiss. If he succeeds..." She trailed off with a frown.
"If he succeeds, then what?" Celia prodded.
"Frankly, I'm not sure. That's as far as the girls ever get in complaining to me about him. First, they tell me he kissed them and it was like communing on some 'ethereal plane.'" She snorted. "Then they protest that they were sure he loved them. And then they start crying. It all goes downhill from there."
"You don't think he actually-"
"No!" She chewed on her lip. "That is, I don't think so. It's hard to know with Pierce. He's so unpredictable." Her gaze met Celia's. "But I'd hate to think of him getting you off alone and attempting-"
"You needn't worry about that," Celia said. "That's what I have Betty for."
"Betty?"
Celia reached into her reticule and pulled out her ladies' pocket pistol.
Virginia leapt back. "Oh, my word! Does your family know you carry that around?"
"I doubt it. I don't think they'd approve."
"I should say not!" Virginia surveyed it curiously. "Is it loaded?"
"Only with powder. There's no ball."
"Thank heaven for that. Still, aren't you worried it will go off by itself?"
"No. It has two protections to keep it from firing accidentally. I made sure of that when I purchased it." Sh #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Heaven quotes by Vilayat Inayat Khan
#29. One must be aware that one is continually being tested in what one wishes most in order to make clear whether one's heart is on earth or in heaven. #Quote by Vilayat Inayat Khan
Heaven quotes by Peter Forsyth
#30. We shall come one day to a heaven where we shall gratefully know that God's great refusals were sometimes the true answers to our truest prayer. #Quote by Peter Forsyth
Heaven quotes by Emily P. Freeman
#31. As a good girl, my worship was small and my service was toxic because I didn't understand the completeness of my rescue. I knew I was going to heaven when I died, but I thought my life on earth was all up to me. Jesus saved me, and now he was standing back with his arms crossed, waiting to see how I would live my life. Service seemed a burden. Worship felt contrived. I had received Christ by faith for my salvation, but I was working hard for the rest. Until he said *enough*. When I began to understand that my true identity was not in how I looked, how I felt, or the lies I believed, my masks began to lose their staying power. It wasn't because I was trying hard to remove them. It was because I was seeing Jesus for who he really is, and in turn I was letting him see me. #Quote by Emily P. Freeman
Heaven quotes by Bob Hartley
#32. I had a dream where I was taken to Heaven and brought into a beautiful library. There I was given two golden books that were covered with dust. The Lord told me they were golden treasure that was needed for the Body of Christ to have the knowledge to proceed and succeed in this hour. #Quote by Bob Hartley
Heaven quotes by Washington Irving
#33. Such heaped up platters of cakes of various and almost indescribable kinds, known only to experienced Dutch housewives! There was the doughty doughnut, the tender oly koek, and the crisp and crumbling cruller; sweet cakes and short cakes, ginger cakes and honey cakes, and the whole family of cakes. And then there were apple pies, and peach pies, and pumpkin pies; besides slices of ham and smoked beef; and moreover delectable dishes of preserved plums, and peaches, and pears, and quinces; not to mention broiled shad and roasted chickens; together with bowls of milk and cream, all mingled higgledy-piggledy, pretty much as I have enumerated them, with the motherly teapot sending up its clouds of vapor from the midst
Heaven bless the mark! #Quote by Washington Irving
Heaven quotes by Muhammad Ali
#34. I said, 'Oh, I know. If the white folks is in Heaven too, then the black angels were in the kitchen, preparing the milk and honey.' #Quote by Muhammad Ali
Heaven quotes by T.H. White
#35. Lancelot and Guenever were sitting at the solar window. An observer of the present day, who knew the Arthurian legend only from Tennyson and people of that sort, would have been startled to see that the famous lovers were past their prime. We, who have learned to base our interpretation of love on the conventional boy-and-girl romance of Romeo and Juliet, would be amazed if we could step back into the Middle Ages - when the poet of chivalry could write about Man that he had 'en ciel un dieu, par terre une deesse'. Lovers were not recruited then among the juveniles and adolescents: they were seasoned people, who knew what they were about. In those days people loved each other for their lives, without the conveniences of the divorce court and the psychiatrist. They had a God in heaven and a goddess on earth - and, since people who devote themselves to godesses must exercise some caution about the ones to whom they are devoted, they neither chose them by the passing standards of the flesh alone, nor abandoned it lightly when the bruckle thing began to fail. #Quote by T.H. White
Heaven quotes by Walter Rauschenbusch
#36. The Kingdom of God is not a matter of getting individuals to heaven, but of transforming the life on earth into the harmony of heaven. #Quote by Walter Rauschenbusch
Heaven quotes by Jennifer Freitag
#37. It is in my mind that heaven is fond of those who don't belong. #Quote by Jennifer Freitag
Heaven quotes by Richard Wilbur
#38. What is our praise or pride but to imagine excellence and try to make it? What does it say over the door of heaven; but, homo (sapiens) fecit? #Quote by Richard Wilbur
Heaven quotes by Regina Brett
#39. I still miss my gramma. I can see her at the farm, in her apron, babushka and support stockings. My Slovak gramma spoiled us with pig in the blankets, kalachi, pop, chips and a drawer full of lollipops. It was heaven. #Quote by Regina Brett
Heaven quotes by Ruta Sepetys
#40. But unlike Mama, I would not go to heaven. My secrets padlocked the gates. I'd be a torn kite stuck in the dead branches of a tree, unable to fly. #Quote by Ruta Sepetys
Heaven quotes by Ao Jyumonji
#41. When I die, I wonder what will happen to me. Is there some place like heaven, and will I be able to meet you there someday? I don't know. There's no way to know. No one knows what comes after death. But at the very least, we won't be able to talk until then.

There's a wide, deep and fast running river between the living and the dead. Once you cross that river, no matter what happens, you're never coming back. It's a one way trip. #Quote by Ao Jyumonji
Heaven quotes by Jean Ingelow
#42. How gently rock yon poplars high Against the reach of primrose sky With heaven's pale candles stored. #Quote by Jean Ingelow
Heaven quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#43. Noble disappointment, noble self-denial are not to be admired, not even to be pardoned, if they bring bitterness. It is one thing to enter the kingdom of heaven maim; another to maim yourself and stay without. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Heaven quotes by Charles Sprague Sargent
#44. Be purity of life the test, leave to the heart, to heaven the rest. #Quote by Charles Sprague Sargent
Heaven quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#45. What is man but a mass of thawing clay? The ball of the human finger is but a drop congealed. The fingers and toes flow to their extent from the thawing mass of the body. Who knows what the human body would expand and flow out to under a more genial heaven? Is not the hand a spreading palm leaf with its lobes and veins? The ear may be regarded, fancifully, as a lichen, Umbilicaria, on the side of the head, with its lobe or drop. The lip--labium, from labor (?)--laps or lapses from the sides of the cavernous mouth. The nose is a manifest congealed drop or stalactite. The chin is a still larger drop, the confluent dripping of the face. The cheeks are a slide from the brows into the valley of the face, opposed and diffused by the cheek bones. Each rounded lobe of the vegetable leaf, too, is a thick and now loitering drop, larger or smaller; the lobes are the fingers of the leaf; and as many lobes as it has, in so many directions it tends to flow, and more heat or other genial influences would have caused it to flow yet farther. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Heaven quotes by E. M. Forster
#46. It happened like this, if it happened at all. I would rather go up to heaven by myself than be pushed by cherubs. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Heaven quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#47. The man who does not betake himself at once and desperately to sawing is called a loafer, though he may be knocking at the doors of heaven all the while. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Heaven quotes by R.D. Laing
#48. The schizophrenic may indeed be mad. He is mad. He is not ill. I have been told by people who have been through the mad experience how what was then revealed to them was veritable manna from Heaven. The person's whole life may be changed, but it is difficult not to doubt the validity of such vision. Also, not everyone comes back to us again. #Quote by R.D. Laing
Heaven quotes by Dylan Thomas
#49. Dark is a way and light is a place,
Heaven that never was
Nor will be ever is always true
Poem on His Birthday #Quote by Dylan Thomas
Heaven quotes by Karen Kingsbury
#50. Wished they could all be in heaven now, with no more death or dying or worries about which career path to take, which guy to love. Life can be so hard. #Quote by Karen Kingsbury
Heaven quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#51. If there is heaven, atheists will be the first to put their foot there; they take time to find God personally. They risk losing everything when they decide He does not exist. While believers will swallow anything you throw at them to protect their own self-interests to get to heaven at all cost, atheists want a real God and I believe God will not disappoint such a genuine breed of human beings. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Heaven quotes by Lauren Kate
#52. Look," Steven said, pointing at the sky.
The stars were out in droves. One, far in the distance, was particularly bright. It flickered, then seemed to go out altogether before returning even brighter than before.
"That's them, isn't it?" she said. "The Fall?"
"Yes," Francesca said. "That's it. It looks just like the old texts say it would."
"It was just"-Luce furrowed her brow, squinting-"I can only see it when I-"
"Concentrate," Cam ordered.
"What's happening to it?" Luce asked.
"It is coming into being in this world," Daniel said. "It wasn't the physical transit from Heaven to Earth that took nine days. It was the shift from a Heavenly realm to an Earthly one. When we landed here, our bodies were...different. We became different. That took time."
"Now time is taking us," Roland said, looking at the golden pocket watch that Dee must have given him before she died.
"Then it is time for us to go," Daniel said to Luce.
"Up there?"
"Yes, we must soar up to meet them. We will fly right up to the limits of the Fall, and then you-"
"I have to stop him?"
"Yes."
She closed her eyes thought back to the way Lucifer had looked at her in the Meadow. He looked like he wanted to crush every speck of tenderness there was. "I think I know how."
"I told you she would say that!" Arriane whooped.
Daniel pulled her close. "Are you sure?"
She kissed him, never surer. "I just got my wings back, Daniel. I'm not goi #Quote by Lauren Kate
Heaven quotes by Anthony Liccione
#53. The closest thing to Heaven, is having a peaceful mind, and a beautiful, pure heart. #Quote by Anthony Liccione
Heaven quotes by Cyc Jouzy
#54. Do You Know That By Just Saying "I WANNA DIE" Or "I WISH I COULD DIE" ... God Can Answer That Prayer???
You Will Be Cancelled In The Book Of Life And At Heaven You Will Be Dead, But You Will Just Be Walking On Earth Waiting To Go To Hell. Thats What Most People Call HELL OF A LIFE ... A Life Of Someone Who Is Not Written In The Book Of Life.
So People Stop Playing With Those Words.
And If You Once Said That, PRAY TONIGHT SO THAT GOD RE-WRITES YOU IN THE BOOK OF LIFE. #Quote by Cyc Jouzy
Heaven quotes by Ari Berk
#55. He couldn't help but wonder what people might say at his funeral, or at his father's, should it come to pass. He thought that heaven might be no further afield than the hearts of those people who remember us with love. This was what he would strive for. To be remembered well. In the hearts of others is where we should strive to make our afterlives, he thought. #Quote by Ari Berk
Heaven quotes by Tori Amos
#56. Is your place in heaven worth giving up these kisses #Quote by Tori Amos
Heaven quotes by Samuel Rutherford
#57. It is the Lord's kindness that he will take the scum off us in the fire. Who know how needful winnowing is to us and what dross we have before we enter the kingdom of God? So narrow is the entry to heaven that our knots, lumps of pride, self-love, idol-love, and world-love must be hammered off us, that we may stoop low and creep through into that narrow entry. #Quote by Samuel Rutherford
Heaven quotes by John Andreas Widtsoe
#58. The line of communication between God and man is always open unless broken by man himself. We are, as it were, always in the presence of our Father in Heaven. Through His Holy Spirit, God is with us always and everywhere. #Quote by John Andreas Widtsoe
Heaven quotes by Robert Palasciano
#59. I'll always remember and cherish the time I spent in Heaven, and I'll never fear death when it comes to me again, for I know that it's only the beginning. #Quote by Robert Palasciano
Heaven quotes by N. T. Wright
#60. Of course there are people who think of 'heaven' as a kind of pie-in-the-sky dream of an afterlife to make the thought of dying less awful. No doubt that's a problem as old as the human race. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Heaven quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#61. In heaven, all the interesting people are missing. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Heaven quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#62. Wonder is the foundation of all philosophy, inquiry the progress, ignorance the end. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Heaven quotes by Molly Friedenfeld
#63. Golden Rule Living is the great simplifier. It places us in another soul's shoes, taking what can appear to be a com- plex decision that involves another and streamlining it to a one-step process of deciding, If I wouldn't like this done to me, then I shall not do it to another. #Quote by Molly Friedenfeld
Heaven quotes by Alistair Begg
#64. Would anyone choose Hell over Heaven? YES! Why? Pride. They don't want to go in the only way you can go in, on your knees. They don't want to admit they are a failure, that their life is a mess. #Quote by Alistair Begg
Heaven quotes by Thomas Merton
#65. The devil is no fool. He can get people feeling about heaven the way they ought to feel about hell. He can make them fear the means of grace the way they do not fear sin. And he does so, not by light but by obscurity, not by realities but by shadows; not by clarity and substance, but by dreams and the creatures of psychosis. And men are so poor in intellect that a few cold chills down their spine will be enough to keep them from ever finding out the truth about anything. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Heaven quotes by Hugh Halter & Matt Smay
#66. If Christianity was only about finding a group of people to live life with who shared openly their search for God and allowed anyone regardless of behavior to seek too and who collectively lived by faith to make the world a little more like Heaven would you be interested ' 'Hell yes ' was his reply. He continued 'Are there churches like that #Quote by Hugh Halter & Matt Smay
Heaven quotes by Randy Alcorn
#67. Because satan hates us, he's determined to rob us of the joy we'd have if we believed what God tells us about the magnificent world to come. #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Heaven quotes by Luo Guanzhong
#68. I have received the command from Heaven: May my time be always long and prosperous. #Quote by Luo Guanzhong
Heaven quotes by Giridhar Alwar
#69. No delays in expressing decisions. Whether its a Yes or No... Right or Wrong... Just tell that for heaven sake. #Quote by Giridhar Alwar
Heaven quotes by Billy Graham
#70. The bad news is there is nothing we can do good enough to get us into Heaven. #Quote by Billy Graham
Heaven quotes by Stendhal
#71. his fine and tender eyes filled her with terror. They seemed at times to be gazing into heaven and reflecting the bliss that they saw there. A moment later, one read in them the torments of the damned. #Quote by Stendhal
Heaven quotes by Ryan Hackney
#72. And if you can't go to heaven, May you at least die in Ireland. #Quote by Ryan Hackney
Heaven quotes by Oswald Chambers
#73. The transfiguration was completed on the Mount of Ascension. If Jesus had gone to heaven directly from the Mount of Transfiguration, He would have gone alone. He would have been nothing more to us than a glorious Figure. But He turned His back on the glory, and came down from the mountain to identify Himself with fallen humanity. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Heaven quotes by Meister Eckhart
#74. I mean those who cling to their own egos in their penances and external devotions, which such people regard as being of great importance. God have mercy on them, for they know little of the divine truth! Please people are called holy because of what they are seen to do, but inside they are asses, for they do not know the real meaning of divine truth . . . They are greatly esteemed by people who know no better . . . May they attain heaven because of their good intent, but that poverty, of which we now wish to speak, they know nothing. #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Heaven quotes by Paul Lynch
#75. This place called heaven, this realm of perfection and life everlasting. When it comes down to it, nobody ever wants to go there. Now isn't that strange? I'll tell you what I've seen. I've seen faith fall apart at the moment of death. I've seen people fight it in every way how. I've seen the terror in their eyes. The scratching, the squirming. If god is life ever after then why is it nobody ever wants to go to him and meet him? #Quote by Paul Lynch
Heaven quotes by Alice Sebold
#76. As she stood in the darkened room and watched my sister and father, I knew one of things that heaven meant. I had a choice, and it was not to divide my family in my heart. #Quote by Alice Sebold
Heaven quotes by Francis Bacon
#77. Certainly, it is heaven upon earth, to have a man's mind move in charity, rest in providence, and turn upon the poles of truth. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Heaven quotes by John Angell James
#78. We should never forget that our time is among the talents for which we must give account at the judgment of God. Time being not the least precious of these, will be required with a strictness proportionate to its value. Let us tremble at this idea, as well we may. We must be tried not only for what we have done - but for what we had time to do, yet neglected to do it. Not only for the hours spent in sin - but for those wasted in idleness. Let us beware of that mode of spending time which some call killing it, for this murder,like others, will not always be concealed - the hours destroyed in secret will appear when we least expect it, to the unspeakable terror and amazement of our souls - they arise from the dead, and fly away to heaven, where they might have carried better news, and there tell sad tales of us, which we shall be sure to hear of again, when we hold up our hands at the bar, and they shall come as so many swift witnesses against us! #Quote by John Angell James
Heaven quotes by Donna Summer
#79. Heaven knows, it's not the way it could be. #Quote by Donna Summer
Heaven quotes by David Wroblewski
#80. He woke one morning tantalized by an idea: if he could catch the orchard trees motionless for one second -- for half of one second -- then none of it would have happened. The kitchen door would bang open and in his father would walk, red-faced and slapping his hands and exclaiming about some newly whelped pup. Childish, Edgar knew, but he didn't care. The trick was to not focus on any single part of any tree, but to look through them all toward a point in the air. But how insidious a bargain he'd made. Even in the quietest moment some small thing quivered and the tableau was destroyed.

How many afternoons slipped away like that? How many midnights standing in the spare room, watching the trees shiver in the moonlight? Still he watched, transfixed. Then, blushing because it was futile and silly, he forced himself to walk away.

When he blinked, an afterimage of perfect stillness.

To think it might happen when he wasn't watching.

He turned back before he reached the door. Through the window glass, a dozen trees strummed by the winter wind, skeletons dancing pair-wise, fingers raised to heaven.

Stop it, he told himself. Just stop.

And watched some more. #Quote by David Wroblewski
Heaven quotes by Richard Kadrey
#81. The universe is a meat grinder and we're just pork in designer shoes, keeping busy so we can pretend we're not all headed for the sausage factory. Maybe I've been hallucinating this whole time and there is no Heaven and Hell. Instead of having to choose between God and the devil, maybe our only real choice comes down to link or patty? #Quote by Richard Kadrey
Heaven quotes by Richard C. Carrier
#82. ...the naive forms of Christian moral motivation - bare threats of hell and the bribery of heaven - stunt moral growth by ensuring believers remain emotional children, never achieving the cognitive moral development of adults. Psychologists have established that mature adults are moral not because of bare threats and bribes (that stage of moral development typifies children, not adults), but because they care about the effects their behavior has on themselves and others. #Quote by Richard C. Carrier
Heaven quotes by Bob George
#83. We have simply not come to grips with the fact that it isn't hard to live the Christian life. It's impossible! Only Christ can live it. And that's why our only hope is to learn that Jesus Christ did not come just to get men out of hell and into heaven; He came to get Himself out of heaven and into men! #Quote by Bob George
Heaven quotes by Sarah Knowles Bolton
#84. Heroic deeds, to use whatever dower Heaven has bestowed, to test our utmost power. #Quote by Sarah Knowles Bolton
Heaven quotes by Tom Perrotta
#85. It was a good day for a parade, sunny and unseasonably warm, the sky a Sunday school cartoon of heaven. #Quote by Tom Perrotta
Heaven quotes by Thomas Cranmer
#86. Lord Jesus, receive my spirit ... I see the heavens open and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. #Quote by Thomas Cranmer
Heaven quotes by Anonymous
#87. And his reason? To show to all the rulers in heaven how perfectly wise he is when all of his family - Jews and Gentiles alike - are seen to be joined together in his Church 11 in just the way he had always planned it through Jesus Christ our Lord. #Quote by Anonymous
Heaven quotes by Edgar Lee Masters
#88. The dust's for crawling, heaven's for flying, Wherefore, O Soul, whose wings are grown, Soar upward to the sun! #Quote by Edgar Lee Masters
Heaven quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#89. It is also said that it takes the shape of a man pointing to both heaven and earth, in order to show that the lower world is the map and mirror of the higher #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Heaven quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#90. Moths and other nocturnal insects navigate by the moon and stars. Those heavenly bodies are useful for them to find their way, even though they never get far from the surface of the earth. But lightbulbs and candles send them astray; they fly into the heat or the flame and die. For these creatures, to arrive is a calamity. When activists mistake heaven for some goal at which they must arrive, rather than an idea to navigate Earth by, they burn themselves out, or they set up a totalitarian utopia in which others are burned in the flames. Don't mistake a lightbulb for the moon, and don't believe that the moon is useless unless we land on it. After all those millennia of poetry about the moon, nothing was more prosaic than the guys in space suits stomping around on the moon with their flags and golf clubs thirty-something years ago. The moon is profound except when we land on it. Paradise #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Heaven quotes by Robert Frost
#91. Fragmentary Blue
Why make so much of fragmentary blue
In here and there a bird, or butterfly,
Or flower, or wearing-stone, or open eye,
When heaven presents in sheets the solid hue?
Since earth is earth, perhaps, not heaven (as yet)
Though some savants make earth include the sky;
And blue so far above us comes so high,
It only gives our wish for blue a whet. #Quote by Robert Frost
Heaven quotes by Bill Johnson
#92. J ESUS PRIMARY MISSION IS summed Up In This One Line: "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil" (1 John 3:8). That was Jesus' assignment; it was the disciples' assignment, and it is your assignment as well. God's purpose in saving you was not simply to rescue you and keep you busy until He shipped you off to Heaven. His purpose was much bigger; He commissioned you to demonstrate the will of God, "on earth as it is in heaven," helping to transform this planet into a place that is radiant and saturated with His power and presence. This is the very backbone of the Great Commission, and it should define your life and mine. #Quote by Bill Johnson
Heaven quotes by Octavia E. Butler
#93. Mars is a rock - cold, empty, almost airless, dead. Yet it's heaven in a way. We can see it in the night sky, a whole other world, but too nearby, too close within the reach of the people who've made such a hell of life here on Earth. #Quote by Octavia E. Butler

Heaven quotes by Huston Smith
#95. Love is the movement within life that carries us, that enables us, that causes us to break out of what Alan Watts calls the "skin-encapsulated ego." Without love, we are self-centered, but love enables us to move the center of our lives outside our ego. Therefore it expands our lives and, needless to say, enriches it. Any human being would give anything to love or be loved. When it really happens, it is like heaven on earth. #Quote by Huston Smith

Heaven quotes by Sara Teasdale
#99. Less than the cloud to the wind,
Less than the foam to the sea,
Less than the rose to the storm
Am I to thee.

More than the star to the night,
More than the rain to the tree,
More than heaven to earth
Art thou to me. #Quote by Sara Teasdale
Heaven quotes by Emma Chase
#100. Later, when Henry is told he may kiss his bride, and he takes her in his arms . . . I've never seen such a look on a man's face. Like he's holding a star, a cherished, sacred piece of heaven, in his very hands.
It's in that moment that I realize and accept - when Ellie walks down the aisle to me, and we say our vows and trade our rings . . . I'll be looking at her in exactly the same way.
I look at her that way now. #Quote by Emma Chase
Heaven quotes by Lisa M. Prysock
#101. It's pretty amazing that the Lord of heaven and earth, creator of everything, the God of Jacob and Israel, the Messiah, Jesus, allows us to carry him around in our hearts! He is good and full of grace, even when we aren't. He loves us even when we mess it up. He deserves our very best! #Quote by Lisa M. Prysock

Heaven quotes by Thomas Goodwin
#104. What a wonder is it, that two natures infinitely distant, should be more intimately united than anything in the world; and yet without any confusion! That the same person should have both a glory and a grief; an infinite joy in the Deity, and an inexpressible sorrow in the humanity! That a God upon a throne should be an infant in a cradle; the thundering Creator be a weeping babe and a suffering man, are such expressions of mighty power, as well as condescending love, that they astonish men upon earth, and angels in heaven. #Quote by Thomas Goodwin
Heaven quotes by Ge Hong

Heaven quotes by Francis Frangipane
#106. The very quality of your life, whether you love it or hate it, is based upon how thankful you are toward God. It is one's attitude that determines whether life unfolds into a place of blessedness or wretchedness. Indeed, looking at the same rose bush, some people complain that the roses have thorns while others rejoice that some thorns come with roses. It all depends on your perspective.

This is the only life you will have before you enter eternity. If you want to find joy, you must first find thankfulness. Indeed, the one who is thankful for even a little enjoys much. But the unappreciative soul is always miserable, always complaining. He lives outside the shelter of the Most High God.

Perhaps the worst enemy we have is not the devil but our own tongue. James tells us, "The tongue is set among our members as that which . . . sets on fire the course of our life" (James 3:6). He goes on to say this fire is ignited by hell. Consider: with our own words we can enter the spirit of heaven or the agonies of hell!

It is hell with its punishments, torments and misery that controls the life of the grumbler and complainer! Paul expands this thought in 1 Corinthians 10:10, where he reminds us of the Jews who "grumble[d] . . . and were destroyed by the destroyer." The fact is, every time we open up to grumbling and complaining, the quality of our life is reduced proportionally -- a destroyer is bringing our life to ruin!

People often ask me, #Quote by Francis Frangipane

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;

Thou lookest in a grave,--to see
Thine immortality! #Quote by Sarah Flower Adams

Heaven quotes by Michelangelo
#110. Led by long years to my last hours, too late, O world, I know your joys for what they are. You promise a peace which is not yours to give and the repose that dies before it is born. The years of fear and shame to which Heaven now set a term, renew nothing in me but the old sweet error in which, living overlong a man kills his soul with no gain to his body. I say and I know having put it to the proof, that he has the better part in Heaven whose death falls nearest his birth. #Quote by Michelangelo
Heaven quotes by Samanth Subramanian
#111. It is the postscript to the war that offers the most revelatory and startling commentary on Dutugemunu's life. Despite his newfound wealth and his peactime luxuries, Dutugemunu wanders gloomily about his palace, too often remembering the carnage he wrought on the battlefield and worried over the deep karmic deficits he has incurred. The elders of the Sangha, the Buddhist clergy, notice this and send a delegation of eight monks to minister to his anguish.

'In truth, venerable sirs,' Dutugemunu tells the monks when they arrive, 'how can there be comfort to me in that I caused the destruction of a great army of myriads of men?'

'There is no hindrance on the way to heaven because of your acts,' one of the monks assures his king. Slaughtering Tamils is no moral mistake. Only the equivalent of one and a half men died at Dutugemunu's hands, according to the Sangha's official arithmetic, because the Tamils 'were heretical and evil and dies as though they were animals. You will make the Buddha's faith shine in many ways. Therefore, Lord of Men, cast away your mental confusion.'

Being thus exhorted, the great king was comforted; his kill rate would never disturb him again. He does, however, recall that, once upon a breakfast, he ate a red-pepper pod without consciously setting aside a portion of it for the Sangha, as was the royal practice. 'For this,' he decides, 'penance must be done by me.' A hierarchy of sin springs into being, in which dishonourin #Quote by Samanth Subramanian

Heaven quotes by Jennifer Megan Varnadore
#113. But that was the most dangerous part, as well as the most alluring. She wanted to feel him take her to that edge. The edge where life met death, where colour met the absence of it, where light met the darkness. She wanted him to bring her to this brink, and she wanted him to let her fall. Why? She longed for self-destruction. She longed to let him show her his darkest, so that she could save him. She had the delusion, no...she was disillusioned. She knew the truth. She also knew that loving him and wanting to save him, to be some sick twisted heaven sent angel was her truest wish. She knew that she could do no saving. She couldn't even save herself, how could she save someone else?

She wanted to encapture his heart. She wanted to destroy it, and she wanted to burn him down. Why? So she could watch him as he writhed in the ashes, and became something new. She wanted to watch him rebirth himself in those flames and ashes, like a pheonix would. Why would she want this of him? Why...because she simply could. She wanted to destroy their love, him and her along with it. She wanted to savor it forever. Some beast inside her, wanted nothing more than their destruction, so that it could smile in that darkness. That darkness within her, wanted him like nothing else could matter. She would die for his darkness, so she could bring him to the light. However, she was far from the light herself. She wanted to trade herself in for someone better than she was. She wanted to give hi #Quote by Jennifer Megan Varnadore
Heaven quotes by Brooke McEldowney
#114. People of religious distinction maintain that human beings exclusively possess souls, on the strength of which they may gain admittance to heaven.

Only human beings lie, devise pogroms, murder for recreation, steal, libel, slander and perform crossword puzzles. This says nothing new about the condition of being human, but it does help to illuminate the special contributions of the soul. #Quote by Brooke McEldowney

#116. I have learned that the bitter, almost unbearable pain can become sweet as you turn to your Father in Heaven and plead for His comfort that comes through His plan; His Son, Jesus Christ; and His Comforter, who is the Holy Ghost. …

"I testify that because of … Jesus Christ, those feelings of sorrow, loneliness, and despair will one day be swallowed up in a fulness of joy. I testify that we can depend on Him and when He said: 'I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you' (John 14:18). #Quote by Shayne M. Bowen

Heaven quotes by Edward Gibbon
#118. An absolute monarch, who is rich without patrimony, may be charitable without merit; and Constantine too easily believed that he should purchase the favour of Heaven if he maintained the idle at the expense of the industrious, and distributed among the saints the wealth of the republic. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Heaven quotes by John Foxe
#119. That to fancy the words of consecration perform what the papists call transubstantiation, by converting the wafer and wine into the real and identical body and blood of Christ, which was crucified, and which afterward ascended into heaven, is too gross an absurdity for even a child to believe, who was come to the least glimmering of reason; and that nothing but the most blind superstition could make the Roman Catholics put a confidence in anything so completely ridiculous. #Quote by John Foxe

Heaven quotes by Laura Lee Guhrke
#122. He imagined her upstairs in her room, lying in bed with her hair spread across the pillow, that nightgown with the pearl buttons down the front tangled around her legs, nothing beneath the delicate fabric but her softness and warmth. Desire pulsed through his body, hungry and hot and needy.
It was unbearable to want her with such intensity, unthinkable to need her with such desperate longing, dangerous to believe that she could somehow keep the demons away. He did not want to need her, for in need, there was dependence. He could not trust, for in trust, there was betrayal. Better never to see heaven at all than to catch a glimpse of it, grab for it, and lose it.
He went to his room. He slept with his demons, and he woke alone. #Quote by Laura Lee Guhrke
Heaven quotes by William Shakespeare

Heaven quotes by Rachel Hawkins
#124. Okay, do you guys feel protected?"
"I do," Archer said. "Also, a little violated, but that's neither here nor there."
I rolled my eyes. "You two?"
"Yeah," Cal said. "Whatever you did, I think it worked."
"Same," Jenna added.
"Awesome." I started walking forward, the other following. "Archer, any helpful factoids about demonglass you'd like to offer up?"
"Um, okay. Well, after the war in heaven, the angels who fought on the wrong side were stripped down to just their most basic level."
"Right," I nodded. "Dad told me that. Demons are just pure dark magic, nothing more. Until they're put in a body, obviously."
"I don't know, there are times when you seem like you're just pure dark-ow." Archer broke off as I poked him in the ribs. "Anyway, the demons were forced into another dimension. What people call hell, or the Underworld, or whatever. Supposedly-and for us, hopefully-that's where you find demonglass. Which, really, is nothing more than rock that's been permeated with all that dark magic. Demon Kryptonite, basically."
"So we're going into another dimension?" Jenna asked, her voice wavering a little. "Like what the Itineris does?"
"That's the idea," Archer replied.
Seeing as how the Itineris almost always left Jenna trying not to cough out her inner organs, I understood why she sounded a little freaked out.
"This doesn't feel like another dimension, though," I said. "It just feels like-"
"A cave," Cal said.

Heaven quotes by Cassandra Clare
#125. Faeries are fallen angels," said Dorothea, "cast down out of heaven for their pride."
"That's the legend," Jace said. "It's also said that they're the offspring of demons and angels, which always seemed more likely to me. Good and evil, mixing together. Faeries are as beautiful as angels are supposed to be, but they have a lot of mischief and cruelty in them. And you'll notice most of them avoid midday sunlight - "
"For the devil has no power," said Dorothea softly, as if she were reciting an old rhyme, "except in the dark. #Quote by Cassandra Clare

Heaven quotes by Hubert Selby, Jr.

There was a sky somewhere above the tops of the buildings, with stars and a moon and all the things there are in a sky, but they were content to think of the distant street lights as planets and stars. If the lights prevented you from seeing the heavens, then preform a little magic and change reality to fit the need. The street lights were now planets and stars and moon. #Quote by Hubert Selby, Jr.

Heaven quotes by Lao Tzu
#139. Practice emptiness to the extreme.
Keep stillness whole.
Myriad things act in concert.
I therefore watch their return.
All things flourish, and each returns to its root.

Return to the root is called Quietude.
Quietude is called Way of Life.
Way of Life is called Constant.

Acting without knowing this constant can be harmful.
Understanding this Constant is called receptivity, which is impartial.


Impartiality is Kingship.
Kingship is Heaven.
Heaven is the Tao.

Though you lose the body, you do not die. #Quote by Lao Tzu

Heaven quotes by Seraphim Rose
#142. Now a government is secure insofar as it has God for its foundation and His Will for its guide; but this, surely, is not a description of Liberal government. It is, in the Liberal view, the people who rule, and not God; God Himself is a "constitutional monarch" Whose authority has been totally delegated to the people, and Whose function is entirely ceremonial. The Liberal believes in God with the same rhetorical fervor with which he believes in Heaven. The government erected upon such a faith is very little different, in principle, from a government erected upon total disbelief, and whatever its present residue of stability, it is clearly pointed in the direction of Anarchy. #Quote by Seraphim Rose

Heaven quotes by Wendell Berry
#145. From other stories that have been handed down to me I know that my people, like many others in the slave states, went to church with their slaves, were baptized with them, and presumably expected to associate with them in heaven. Again, I have been years realizing what this means, and what it has cost.

First, consider the moral predicament of the master who sat in church with his slaves, thus attesting his belief in the immortality of the souls of people whose bodies he owned and used. He thus placed his body, if not his mind, at the very crux of the deepest contradiction of his life. How could he presume to own the body of a man whose soul he considered as worthy of salvation as his own? To keep this question from articulating itself in his thoughts and demanding an answer, he had to perfect an empty space in his mind, a silence, between heavenly concerns and earthly concerns, between body and spirit. If there had ever opened a conscious connection between the two claims, if the two sides of his mind had ever touched, it would have been like building a fire in a house full of gunpowder: somewhere down deep in his mind he always knew of the danger, and his nerves were always alert to it. #Quote by Wendell Berry

"But you already knew that." Then, the mocking stab, "So, where is your god?" Noah would not dignify the remark. Instead, he prophesied, "I know who you are, Semjaza and Azazel, fallen Sons of God. You have laid the nations low, you sit on the mount of assembly, you have made yourselves like the Most High. But you will be brought down to Sheol." Inanna broke in bitterly, "He imagines himself a prophet now, and privy to the Watchers' secrets. #Quote by Brian Godawa
Heaven quotes by John Keats
#150. Four seasons fill the measure of the year;
There are four seasons in the mind of Man:
He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clear
Takes in all beauty with an easy span:
He has his Summer, when luxuriously
Spring's honeyed cud of youthful thought he loves
To ruminate, and by such dreaming high
Is nearest unto heaven: quiet coves
His soul has in its Autumn, when his wings
He furleth close; contented so to look
On mists in idleness -to let fair things
Pass by unheeded as a threshold brook: -
He has his Winter too of pale misfeature,
Or else he would forgo his mortal nature. #Quote by John Keats
Heaven quotes by Marquis De Sade

Heaven quotes by Angela Panayotopulos
#152. Hell and Heaven are states of being, not destinations. They are worlds we carry within. Don't expect to find angels and demons -- not in the way you've envisioned them. As God is called Allah, so Man is called Monster. Don't be fooled by titles. Call a skunk a rose and it will continue to reek.

Hydras do not crawl out from between the weatherworn pages of fairytale anthologies. On the contrary, they ride the subway and order food at the local drive-through and enjoy stolen kisses at the cinema. Only one head is visible to the naked eye. They tend to avoid reflective surfaces.

Each head is a sin: each belch of fire is a sin put to action. But you should know that the shadows differ. There may be seven heads, or three, or one. Those with one head are particularly tricky. Who's to say if they're human or hydra? You'd have to kiss them, bite them. You would know them by their mouth. The name of their sin is tattooed on the inside of their bottom lip, so they can lick and taste its sweetness. #Quote by Angela Panayotopulos
Heaven quotes by Seraphim Of Sarov
#153. Oh, if you only knew what joy, what sweetness awaits a righteous soul in Heaven! You would decide in this mortal life to bear any sorrows, persecutions and slander with gratitude. If this very cell of ours was filled with worms, and these worms were to eat our flesh for our entire life on earth, we should agree to it with total desire, in order not to lose, by any chance, that heavenly joy which God has prepared for those who love Him. #Quote by Seraphim Of Sarov
Heaven quotes by Henry Drummond
#154. ... something wholly new in religious thought. All other heavens have been gardens, dreamlands: passivities, more or less aimless. Even to the majority among ourselves, heaven is a siesta and not a city.
The heaven of Christianity is different from all other heavens, because the religion of Christianity is different from all other religions. Christianity is the religion of cities. It moves among real things. Its sphere is the street, the market-place, the working life of the world... Try to restore the natural force of the expression - suppose John to have lived today and to have said 'I saw a new London. #Quote by Henry Drummond

Heaven quotes by George Herbert
#156. Having been tenant long to a rich Lord,
Not thriving, I resolved to be bold,
And make a suit unto him, to afford
A new small-rented lease, and cancell th' old.
In heaven at his manour I him sought:
They told me there, that he was lately gone
About some land, which he had dearly bought
Long since on earth, to take possession.
I straight return'd, and knowing his great birth,
Sought him accordingly in great resorts;
In cities, theatres, gardens, parks, and courts:
At length I heard a ragged noise and mirth
Of theeves and murderers: there I him espied,
Who straight, Your suit is granted, said, and died. #Quote by George Herbert
Heaven quotes by Richard Baxter

Is it not a terrible thing to a wretched soul, when it shal lie roaring perpetually in the flames of hell, and the God of mercy himself shall laugh at them; when they shall cry out for mercy, yea, for one drop of water, and God shall mock them instead of relieving them; when non in heaven or earth can help them but God, and hell shall rejoice over them in their calamity(244)? #Quote by Richard Baxter
Heaven quotes by C.S. Lewis
#158. And just as the Witch Jadis had looked different when you saw her in our world instead of in her own, so the fruit of that mountain garden looked different too. There were of course all sorts of colored things in the bedroom; the colored counterpane on the bed, the wallpaper, the sunlight from the window, and Mother's pretty, pale blue dressing jacket. But the moment Digory took the Apple out of his pocket, all those things seemed to have scarcely any color at all. Everyone of them, even the sunlight, looked faded and dingy. The brightness of the Apple threw strange lights on the ceiling. Nothing else was worth looking at: you couldn't look at anything else. And the smell of the Apple of Youth was as if there was a window in the room that opened on Heaven. #Quote by C.S. Lewis

#160. The greatest feeling you can get in a gym or the most satisfying feeling you can get in the gym is the pump. It feels fantastic. It's as satisfying to me as cumming is, you know, as in having sex with a woman and cumming. So can you believe how much I am in heaven? I am like getting the feeling of cumming in the gym; I'm getting the feeling of cumming at home; I'm getting the feeling of cumming backstage; when I pump up, when I pose out in front of 5000 people I get the same feeling, so I am cumming day and night. It's terrific, right? So you know, I am in heaven. #Quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger

How he detested that face of hers, her boutique-face, the one that she seemed to put on deliberately in order to play her role in that frivolous world; a face that seemed to linger on once she found herself alone with him, its abominable features fading away only very slowly, as there gradually emerged one or another of the faces that belonged to him alone, a face he waited for as one awaits a beloved traveler amid a repulsive crowd. But as Bruno said, the word person means "mask", and each of us has many masks; that of father, professor, lover....But which is the real one? And is there in fact one that is the real one? At certain moments Martin thought that the Alejandra that he was now seeing there before him, laughing at Bobby's jokes, was not, could not be the same Alejandra that he knew, and above all could not be the more profound, the marvelous and fearsome Alejandra that he loved. But at other times (and as the weeks went by the more he began to be convinced of it), he was inclined to think, as Bruno did, that all these Alejandras were real and that that boutique-face was genuine too and in some way or other expressed a sort of reality inherent in Alejandra's soul: a reality--and heaven only knew how many others there were!---that was foreign to him, that did not belong to him and never would. And then, when she came to him still bearing the faint traces of those other personalities, as though she had not had the ti #Quote by Ernesto Sabato
Heaven quotes by Euripides
#164. AGAMEMNON: Oh immovable law of heaven! Oh my anguish, my relentless fate!

CLYTEMNESTRA: Yours? Mine. Hers. No relenting for any of us. #Quote by Euripides
Heaven quotes by Bonnie D. Parkin
#165. If we are in tune with the Spirit, if we are seeking the Lord and His guidance, if our direction is to return to our Father in Heaven, the sweet moments will come. And we will treasure them, for we have become instruments in the hands of God #Quote by Bonnie D. Parkin
Heaven quotes by Dan Petermeier
#166. Life's like a puzzle. Everyone is given one piece. Sometimes you connect with someone or something that has an interlocking part. As time goes by, you'll see that picture taking form, and you'll be amazed how beautiful it is. God will never tell you how many pieces it takes or how to complete the puzzle, but when you meet Him in heaven, you'll see that everything fit together perfectly. #Quote by Dan Petermeier
Heaven quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#167. those who believe in God should pray - not for money, not for health, nor for heaven; pray for knowledge and light; every other prayer is selfish. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Heaven quotes by Thomas Paine
#168. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods. It would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as Freedom should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to tax) but "to bind us in all cases whatsoever," and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious, for so unlimited a power can belong only to God. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Heaven quotes by Anne Bronte
#169. God is Infinite Wisdom, and Power, and Goodness - and LOVE; but if this idea is too vast for your human faculties - if your mind loses itself in its overwhelming infinitude, fix it on Him who condescended to take our nature upon Him, who was raised to Heaven even in His glorified human body, in whom the fulness of the Godhead shines. #Quote by Anne Bronte
Heaven quotes by Genna Rulon
#170. There is nothing I wouldn't do to see you smile or hear you laugh. No distance I wouldn't travel to be by your side, no war I wouldn't wage to protect you. Being with you, loving you, knowing you love me... that's my definition o heaven. I get to spend every day in heaven because of you, so all those little things I do, they're only glimpses of everything you give me. #Quote by Genna Rulon
Heaven quotes by Nick Harkaway
#171. I have known heaven, and now I am in hell, and there are mimes. #Quote by Nick Harkaway
Heaven quotes by Steve Mosby
#172. Have you ever had somebody grip you with a passion you never thought existed outside the fucking movies? As though they found you the most precious thing in the world? I felt it then, and couldn't believe that somebody would actually want me that much. I don't believe in Heaven as a place, but I sometimes think that if a person could write down how I felt at just that moment - if they could describe it perfectly - then that sentence would be something like Heaven to me. And as a final resting place, I'd be happy to have my name shrunk down and rested, invisibly, on the collar of the full stop at the end. #Quote by Steve Mosby
Heaven quotes by Caedmon
#173. The fiend with all his comrades Fell then from heaven above, Through as long as three nights and days, The angels form heaven into hell; And them all the Lord transformed to devils, Because they his deed and word Would not revere. #Quote by Caedmon
Heaven quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#174. Everything which has name and form must die. If there are heavens with forms, these heavens must vanish in course of time; they may last millions of years, but there must come a time when they will have to go. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Heaven quotes by Henry George Bohn
#175. If on creation's morn the king of heaven
To shrubs and flowers a sovereign lord had given,
O beauteous rose, he had anointed thee
Of shrubs and flowers the sovereign lord to be;
The spotless emblem of unsullied truth,
The smile of beauty and the glow of youth,
The garden's pride, the grace of vernal bowers,
The blush of meadows, and the eye of flowers. #Quote by Henry George Bohn
Heaven quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#176. In time the glowing, cratered moon began its seeming rise from the sea, casting a prism of light across the slowly darkening water, splitting itself into a thousand different parts, each more beautiful than the last. At exactly the same moment, the sun was meeting the horizon in the opposite direction, turning the sky red and orange and yellow, as if heaven above had suddenly opened its gates and let all its beauty escape its holy confines. The ocean turned golden silver as the shifting colors reflected off it, waters rippling and sparkling with the changing light, the vision glorious, almost like the beginning of time. The sun continued to lower itself, casting its glow as far as the eye could see, before finally, slowly, vanishing beneath the waves. The moon continued its slow drift upward, shimmering as it turned a thousand different shades of yellow, each paler than the last, before finally becoming the color of the stars. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Heaven quotes by Lao-Tzu
#177. Nothing under heaven
is as yielding as water.
And yet in attacking the hard,
the unyielding,
nothing can surpass it.
Nothing can take its place.
The weak overcomes the strong,
the soft surpasses the hard.
In all the world, there's no one
who doesn't know this,
but no one can master the practice. #Quote by Lao-Tzu
Heaven quotes by Samuel Bryan
#178. The evil genius of darkness presided at its birth, it came forth under the veil of mystery, its true features being carefully concealed, and every deceptive art has been and is practicing to have this spurious brat received as the genuine offspring of heaven-born liberty. So fearful are its patrons that you should discern the imposition, that they have hurried on its adoption, with the greatest precipitation. After so recent a triumph over British despots, after such torrents of blood and treasure have been spent, after involving ourselves in the distresses of an arduous war, and incurring such a debt for the express purpose of asserting the rights of humanity; it is truly astonishing that a set of men among ourselves should have the effrontery to attempt the destruction ofour liberties. But in this enlightened age to hope to dupe the people by the arts they are practicing is still more extraordinary. #Quote by Samuel Bryan
Heaven quotes by Pastor Rod W. Larkins
#179. It is time for a new outpouring of the SPIRIT of GOD! It is time that we receive FRESH FIRE and FRESH POWER from Heaven#Quote by Pastor Rod W. Larkins
Heaven quotes by Henry Miller
#180. If we have not found heaven within, it is a certainty we will not find it without. #Quote by Henry Miller
Heaven quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#181. A tender heart is the best defence against sin, and the best preparation for heaven. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Heaven quotes by Dwight L. Moody
#182. God has nothing to say to the self-righteous. Unless you humble yourself before Him in the dust, and confess before Him your iniquities and sins, the gate of heaven, which is open only for sinners, saved by grace, must be shut against you forever. #Quote by Dwight L. Moody
Heaven quotes by Arthur Miller
#183. Now hell and heaven grapple on our backs and all our old pretense is ripped away. Aye, and God's icy wind will blow. #Quote by Arthur Miller
Heaven quotes by Albert Alexander Bukoski
#184. Crystal clear view of your heart, beautiful and strong,
Love that flows with life, flows with care,
Warm feelings come to myself, as I gaze on your heart,
A smile, a love, a caring to you I give,
My world fixed on your heart, crystal beautiful, crystal clear,
Boundaries are defined by space, love is defined by heaven,
Both are crossed by a bridge made of souls connected,
Your heart, my dear, beautiful and warm,
May I touch your heart with mine, may I go to heaven?
As I touch your heart..I love you my dear, this is heaven.
Good Evening.....hope you will enjoy the heavens on earth
with the one who makes you feel the best out of you ...
the beaut of the life is when you see the love in the eyes
without a word being spoken. #Quote by Albert Alexander Bukoski
Heaven quotes by Julie Klassen
#185. And that love letter you wrote," Rowan added helpfully. "Signing it with another chap's name." Emma Smallwood's eyes widened, and she turned to look at him, brows high. Henry felt his neck heat. His cravat seemed suddenly far too tight. "That's right," Phillip nodded as the memory returned to him. "Pugsworth, was it not?" Julian grinned at Miss Smallwood, clearly enjoying himself. "Did you really think this Pugsworth fellow in love with you?" Heaven help him, Henry hoped she wouldn't burst into disillusioned tears. Not all these years later. And not over Milton Pugsworth. But Miss Smallwood remained her imperturbable self. "Goodness no," she said. "For all his faults, Mr. Pugsworth spelled exceptionally well and had the neatest hand I ever saw. Your brother, on the other hand, never did learn to spell. And I recognized his sloppy scratchings the moment I saw them." Phillip gave her a long look of amused approval. "Bravo, Emma. #Quote by Julie Klassen
Heaven quotes by H. L. Balcomb
#186. He was humbled by her infinite love toward him - it shone through even in his afterlife. #Quote by H. L. Balcomb
Heaven quotes by Andrew Murray
#187. Precious lessons that Jesus has to teach us this day. We seek God's gifts: God wants to give us HIMSELF first. We think of prayer as the power to draw down good gifts from heaven; Jesus as the means to draw ourselves up to God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Heaven quotes by E.J. Copperman

Heaven quotes by Matthew Henry
#189. The kingdom of heaven was never intended to indulge the ease of triflers, but to the rest of them that labor. #Quote by Matthew Henry
Heaven quotes by Michael Benanav
#190. I'd been deeply affected by my contact with the miners, not only because of their kindness, but because they'd taken this potentially hellish place and made it, if not heaven, at least human; through their simple rituals of eating, drinking tea, smoking tobacco, praying, playing, and talking, they'd created civilization in one of the most impossible places to imagine it. And what seemed like a miracle to me was, to them, just another day at work! #Quote by Michael Benanav
Heaven quotes by Victor Manan
#191. If you have to run then learn from Bolt, if you have to fight watch Muhammad Ali`s jab and grab punches, if dunking with a basketball does it for you why not pull a Vince Carter or fly in like Michael Jordan , if science and evolution tickles your fancy have you read "Evolution" by Charles Darwin?

Well, Like Martin Luther king said " If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well."

So pickup that broom , get started and stop complaining! #Quote by Victor Manan
Heaven quotes by Rupert Brooke
#192. Fish say, they have their Stream and Pond; But is there anything Beyond? #Quote by Rupert Brooke
Heaven quotes by Jamie West Zumwalt
#193. In our fight for justice, it is all too easy to mirror the hatred we encounter. Sometimes we must take a stand for the ones who are being oppressed, but when we do it out of a motive of Love, maybe the world moves one step closer to looking like heaven. #Quote by Jamie West Zumwalt
Heaven quotes by Emanuel Swedenborg
#194. And as the Divine that goes forth from the Lord is the good of love and the truth of faith, the angels are angels and are heaven in the measure in which they receive good and truth from the Lord. #Quote by Emanuel Swedenborg
Heaven quotes by Rama Swami
#195. The poor long for riches, the rich long for heaven, but the wise long for a state of tranquility. #Quote by Rama Swami
Heaven quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#196. If you go to Heaven without being naturally qualified for it you will not enjoy yourself there. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Heaven quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#197. SADNESSES OF THE COVENANT: Sadness of God's love; Sadness of God's back [sic]; Favourite-child sadness; Sadness of b[ein]g sad in front of one's God; Sadness of the opposite of belief [sic]; What if? Sadness; Sadness of God alone in heaven; Sadness of a God who would need people to pray to Him ... #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Heaven quotes by Toba Beta
#198. If no war in heaven, then defeat ain't misery. #Quote by Toba Beta
Heaven quotes by Douglas M. Laurent
#199. There is no force in Earth or Heaven above,
No, not even the damned of Hell can stop relentless Love. ---Kari, The Valkyrie, Chapter Sixteen,
Valley of the Damned Epic Martial Poem/Allegory #Quote by Douglas M. Laurent
Heaven quotes by E. M. Forster
#200. All invitations must proceed from heaven perhaps; perhaps it is futile for men to initiate their own unity, they do but widen the gulfs between them by the attempt. #Quote by E. M. Forster
