Quotation Bullet

One cannot walk through an assembly factory and not feel that one is in Hell.
~ W. H. Auden - [Hell]

Quotation Bullet

Hell is out of fashion -- institutional hells at any rate. The populated infernos of the 20th century are more private affairs, the gaps between the bars are the sutures of one's own skull. A valid hell is one from which there is a possibility of redemption, even if this is never achieved, the dungeons of an architecture of grace whose spires point to some kind of heaven. The institutional hells of the present century are reached with one-way tickets, marked Nagasaki and Buchenwald, worlds of terminal horror even more final than the grave.
~ J. G. Ballard - [Hell]

Quotation Bullet

Of all the inhabitants of the inferno, none but Lucifer knows that hell is hell, and the secret function of purgatory is to make of heaven an effective reality.
~ Arnold Bennett - [Hell]

Quotation Bullet

And what have you laymen made of hell? A kind of penal servitude for eternity, on the lines of your convict prisons on earth, to which you condemn in advance all the wretched felons your police have hunted from the beginning -- ''enemies of society,'' as you call them. You're kind enough to include the blasphemers and the profane. What proud or reasonable man could stomach such a notion of God's justice? And when you find that notion inconvenient it's easy enough for you to put it on one side. Hell is not to love any more, Madame. Not to love any more!
~ Georges Bernanos - [Hell]

Quotation Bullet

Hell is paved with great granite blocks hewn from the hearts of those who said, ''I can do no other.''
~ Heywood Broun - [Hell]

Quotation Bullet

We ought to fly away from earth to heaven as quickly as we can; and to fly away is to become like God, as far as this is possible; and to become like him is to become holy, just, and wise.
~ Plato - [Heaven]

Quotation Bullet

Heaven finds an ear when sinners find a tongue.
~ Francis Quarles - [Heaven]

Quotation Bullet

As for evildoers, for them awaits a painful chastisement; but for those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, they shall be admitted to gardens underneath which rivers flow, therein dwelling forever, by the leave of their Lord, their greeting therein: ''Peace!''
~ Qur'an - [Heaven]

Quotation Bullet

On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.
~ Jules Renard - [Heaven]

Quotation Bullet

What they do in heaven we are ignorant of; what they do not do we are told expressly.
~ Jonathan Swift - [Heaven]
