heaven

A Quote by Victor Marie Hugo on country, death, earth, hatred, heaven, hope, and war

In the Twentieth Century war will be dead, the scaffold will be dead, hatred will be dead, frontier boundaries will be dead, dogmas will be dead; man will live. He will possess something higher than all these-a great country, the whole earth, and a great hope, the whole heaven.

Victor Marie Hugo (1802 - 1885)

A Quote by Victor Marie Hugo on blindness, dawn, day, earth, eternity, future, generosity, heart, heaven, history, immortality, justice, lies, life, philosophy, prose, reflection, romance, simplicity, songs, soul, traditions, work, and writing

I feel within me the future life. I am like a forest that has been razed; the new shoots are stronger and brisker. I shall most certainly rise toward the heavens. The sun's rays bathe my head. The earth gives me its generous sap, but the heavens illuminate me with the reflection of-of worlds unknown. Some say the soul results merely from bodily powers. Why, then, does my soul become brighter when my bodily powers begin to waste away? Winter is above me, but eternal spring is within my heart. I inhale even now the fragrance of lilacs, violets, and roses, just as I did when I was twenty. The nearer my approach to the end, the plainer is the sound of immortal symphonies of worlds which invite me. It is wonderful yet simple. It is a fairy tale; it is history. For half a century I have been writing my thoughts in prose and in verse; history, philosophy, drama, romance, tradition, satire, ode, and song; all of these have I tried. But I feel that I haven't given utterance to the thousandth part of what lies within me. When I go to the grave I can say as others have said, "I have finished my day's work." But I cannot say, "I have finished my life." My day's work will begin again the next morning. The tomb is not a blind alley; it is a thoroughfare. It closes on the twilight, but opens on the dawn.

A Quote by unknown on angels, death, earth, expectation, heaven, judgment, surprises, words, and worth

I dreamed death came the other night And Heaven's gate swung wide. A glorious angel soon appeared And ushered me inside. And there to my astonishment Were folks I'd known on earth. Some I'd judged and found unfit And some of little worth. Indignant words rose to my lips But never were set free For every face showed stunned surprise Not one expected me.

A Quote by unknown on angels, disability, expectation, heaven, judgment, surprises, words, and worth

I dreamt of heaven the other night, and the pearly gates swung wide. An angel with halo bright, ushered me inside. And there to my astonishment, stood folks I'd judged & labeled as quite "unfit," of "little worth," and "spiritually disabled." Indignant words rose to my lips, but NEVER were set free, for EVERY face showed stunned surprise, not ONE expected Me!

How close is Heaven? It's not very far. When you are close to God, It's right where you are.

A Quote by unknown on children, fatherhood, god, and heaven

Teach your children and those with whom you associate that using profanity is against the will of our Father in Heaven. Taking the Lord's name in vain is breaking one of God's commandments.

Every morning, lean thine arms awhile Upon the window-sill of Heaven, And gaze upon the Lord . . . Then with that vision in thy heart, Turn strong to meet the day.
