afterlife

A Quote by Pablo Neruda on heaven, afterlife, dogs, materialism, atheism, and pets

And I, a materialist who does not believe
in the starry heaven promised
to a human being,
for this dog and for every dog
I believe in heaven, yes, I believe in a heaven
that I will never enter, but he waits for me
wagging his big fan of a tail
so I, soon to arrive, will feel welcomed.

Pablo Neruda (1904 - 1973)

A Quote by Odysseas Elytis on paradise, afterlife, trees, justice, eros, and love

If a seperate personal Paradise exists for each of us mine must irreparably be planted with trees of words which the wind silvers like poplars, by people who see their confiscated justice given back, and by birds that even in the midst of the truth of death insist on singing in Greek and saying, eros, eros, eros.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on god, rewards, punishes, theism, and afterlife

I cannot conceive of a God who rewards and punishes his creatures, or has a will of the kind that we experience in ourselves.  Neither can I nor would I want to conceive of an individual that survives his physical death; let feeble souls, from fear or absurd egoism, cherish such thoughts.

A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on immortality, afterlife, circle of life, corpse, rot, death, life eternal, nature, and life feeds on life

If my decomposing carcass helps nourish the roots of a juniper tree or the wings of a vulture - that is immortality enough for me. And as much as anyone deserves.

A Quote by Douglas Adams on afterlife, death, and prayer

He hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife. Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife.

A Quote by unknown on death, god, serenity, and afterlife

   

When I consider the hour that will come

In which my spirit will be one with God,

It is then that my joy will be complete;

It is then that I will see the whole creation.

All of its secrets will be revealed to me

And my knowledge will be prefect:

The galaxies will be at arm's distance,

I will touch the stars with my bare hands;

The beauty of every flower, mountain and valley

No longer will be a secret,

And every creature will reveal to me

The immense, awe-inspiring world

Created by God's loving hand.

And as I stroll on the bottom of the oceans,

Ride a comet through a million stars,

Or watch a flower grow,

I will look in the eyes of other angels

To meet in them the same beatitude

In which my spirit rejoices.

A Quote by Hugh Hefner on afterlife, heaven, hell, life, reward, moral, ethic, and better

I urge one and all to live this life as if there is no reward in the afterlife and to do it in a moral way that makes it better for you and for those around you, and that leaves this world a little better place than when you found it.
