H. L. Mencken
O tenderly the haughty day Fills his blue urn with fire; One morn is in the mighty heaven, And one in our desire.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Divorces are made in Heaven.
Each of us has heaven and hell in him...
I consider that the chief dangers which confront the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, and heaven without hell.
The true Christian is called to be a soldier and must behave as such from the day of his conversion to the day of his death. He is not meant to live a life of religious ease, indolence and security. He must never imagine for a moment that he can sleep and doze along the way to heaven, like one traveling in an easy carriage.
J. C. Ryle
A star on earth - a star in heaven.

Good news from heaven the angels bring,
Glad tidings to the earth they sing:
To us this day a child is given,
To crown us with the joy of heaven.
Hell is gone and heaven's here,there’s nothing left for you to fear.
Her angel's face, As the great eye of heaven shined bright, And made a sunshine in the shady place.
