A Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert on suffering, hell, karma, and heaven

Take care of the problems now, or else you'll just have to suffer again later when you scew everything up the next timeAnd that repetition of suffering - that's hell.  Moving out of that endless repetition to a new level of understand - there's where you'll find heaven.

A Quote by Bertrand Arthur William Russell on glory, thought, revolution, habit, hell, and freedom

"Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death.... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man."

Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)

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.

A Quote by May Sarton on anguish, violence, anger, alone, temperament, fear, silence, heaven, hell, routines, silent, and clamor

The anguish of my life here - its rages - is hardly mentioned...There is violence there and anger never resolved.  I live alone, perhaps for no good reason, for the reason that I am an impossible creature, set apart by a temperament I have never learned to use as it could be used, thrown off by a word,a glance, a rainy day, or one drink too many.  My need to be alone is balanced against my fear of what will happen when suddenly I enter the huge empty silence if I cannot find support there.  I go up to Heaven and down to Hell in an hour, and keep alive only by imposing upon myself inexorable routines...It may be outwardly silent here but in the back of my mind is a clamor of human voices, too many needs, hopes and fear.  I hardly ever sit still without being haunted by the "undone"...

To judge from the notions expounded by theologians, one must conclude that God created most men simply with a view to crowding hell.

A Quote by Mr. on paradise, hell, lost, and change

Lost between two worlds. One lies dying. The other crying to be born. Lost between two worlds. Paradise's promise and hell fire's scorn.
