“If we want hell,
if we want heaven,
they are ours.

It always leaves room for the other to decide.
God says yes,
we can have what we want,
because love wins.”
Rob Bell, Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived

Hanna Howard
“Iyzabel could cover up this majesty, she could starve an entire kingdom of its presence, but in the end she was a speck just like me, and she could no more destroy the Light of the heavens than swallow up the ocean.”
Hanna Howard, Ignite the Sun

Louisa May Alcott
“for through an opening in the wood one could look across the wide, blue river,—the meadows on the other side,—far over the outskirts of the great city, to the green hills that rose to meet the sky. The sun was low, and the heavens glowed with the splendor of an autumn sunset. Gold and purple clouds lay on the hill-tops; and rising high into the ruddy light were silvery white peaks, that shone like the airy spires of some Celestial City.”
Louisa May Alcott

Bertolt Brecht, Galileo

Bertolt Brecht
“The mechanism of the heavens was clearer, the mechanism of their courts was still murky.

Rebecca Roanhorse
“What use is a power to read the heavens if it cannot be turned to your own benefit?”
Rebecca Roanhorse, Black Sun

Thomas Traherne
“Would one think it possible for a man to delight in gauderies like a butterfly, and neglect the Heavens? Did we not daily see it, it would be incredible.”
Thomas Traherne, Centuries of Meditations

“The immeasurable depth of the sea beneath your feet; the immeasurable depth of heavens above your head. A gust of wind hardly moved the sail. The dark masses of water shifted like a great slithering beast under the boat, rocking it softly, gently.”
Witold Makowiecki, Out of the Lion's Maw

Alexandre Dumas
“Monte Cristo raised his eyes heavenwards but could not see the heavens: there was a veil of stone between him and the firmament.”

“God is the Master of all Creation. The Heavens, the Earth and everything in it, bow before Him.”
Gift Gugu Mona, Daily Quotes about God: 365 Days of Heavenly Inspiration

“I shall see the face of Mars, anyhow, and that will be a rare experience. It seems to me that a view of the heavenly bodies through a fine telescope, as well as a tour round the world, should form a part of a liberal education. How many run to and fro upon the earth, hunting for sights at great trouble and expense, but how few even think of that sublimer scenery of the sky which can be seen without stirring far from home! A peep at some distant orb has power to raise and purify our thoughts like a strain of sacred music, or a noble picture, or a passage from the grander poets. It always does one good.”
John Munro, A Trip to Venus

Gift Gugu Mona
“Faith alerts the Heavens of where you stand and the Heavens get provoked to stand by you.”

Elif Shafak, The Bastard of Istanbul

Sky Gold
“She missed the simplicity of Dunia’s clearest, darkest skies, pristine and unencumbered from light pollution. The vast canvas of distant galaxies, nebulas, meteorites and shooting stars had always left her in awe. She often went stargazing on the beach outside her father’s official residence, lying on her back looking up at the heavens as she lost herself in their rich, ancient, mysterious beauty.”
Sky Gold

“It is a common pattern in Asian religions that hells below complement heavens above. In Buddhism, just as there are many hells, there are countless numbers of devas, and a multitude of heavens, summarized in figure 17.”
Akira Sadakata, Buddhist Cosmology: Philosophy and Origins
