A Quote by William Law on god, heaven, hell, and power

The will is that which has all power; it makes heaven and it makes hell: for there is no hell but where the will of the creature is turned from God, nor any heaven but where the will of the creature worketh with God.

William Law (1686 - 1761)

A Quote by William Hazlitt on death, earth, fear, glory, habits, hell, men, privilege, thought, and world

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.

A Quote by William Blake on despair, heaven, hell, and love

Love seeketh not itself to please, Nor for itself hath any care, But for another gives its ease, And builds a Heaven in Hell's despair. Love seeketh only Self to please, To bind another to its delight, Joys in another's loss of ease, And builds a Hell in Heaven's despite.

A Quote by W. E. B. Du Bois on boredom, heaven, hell, life, needs, satisfaction, work, and world

The return from your work must be the satisfaction which that work brings you and the world's need of that work. With this, life is heaven, or as near heaven as you can get. Without this - with work which you despise, which bores you, and which the world does not need - this life is hell.
