No wearisome days, no sorrowful nights; no hunger or thirst; no anxiety or fears; no envies, no jealousies, no breaches of friendship, no sad separations, no distrusts or forebodings, no self-reproaches, no enmities, no bitter regrets, no tears, no heartaches; "And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away."
      - Randolph S. Foster

They are kings and priests unto God. They wear crowns that flash in the everlasting light. They wear robes that are spotlessly white. They wave victorious palms. They sing anthems of such exceeding sweetness as no earthly choirs ever approach. They stand before the throne. They fly on ministries of love. They muse on the top of Mount Zion. They meditate on the banks of the river of life. They are rapturous with ecstasies of love. God wipes away all tears from their eyes.
      - Randolph S. Foster

Infinite in degree, and endless in duration.
      - Benjamin Franklin

There are times in the history of men and nations, when they stand so near the vale that separates mortals from the immortals, time from eternity, and men from their God, that they can almost hear the beatings, and feel the pulsations of the heart of the Infinite.
      - James Abram Garfield

Where billows never break, not tempests roar.
      - Sir Samuel Garth, Dispensary
         (canto III, l. 226)

While resignation gently slopes the way;
  And, all his prospects brightening to the last,
    His heaven commences ere the world be past.
      - Oliver Goldsmith, The Deserted Village
         (l. 110)

They had finished her own crown in glory, and she couldn't stay away from the coronation.
      - Thomas Gray, Enigmas of Life

Heaven is the day of which grace is the dawn; the rich, ripe fruit of which grace is the lovely flower; the inner shrine of that most glorious temple to which grace forms the approach and outer court.
      - Thomas Guthrie (1)

Perhaps God does with His heavenly garden as we do with our own. He may chiefly stock it from nurseries, and select for transplanting what is yet in its young and tender age--flowers before they have bloomed and trees ere they begin to bear.
      - Thomas Guthrie (1)

Heaven hath many tongues to talk of it, more eyes to behold it, but few hearts that rightly affect it.
      - Joseph Hall

Heaven is attracting to itself whatever is congenial to its nature, is Enriching itself by the spoils of earth, and collecting within its capacious bosom whatever is pure, permanent and divine.
      - Robert Hall

What delight will it afford to renew the sweet counsel we have taken together, to recount the toils, the combats, and the labor of the way, and to approach, not the house, but the throne of God, in company, in order to join in the symphonies of heavenly voices, and lose ourselves amidst the splendors and fruitions of the beatific vision.
      - Robert Hall

Nothing is farther than earth from heaven; nothing is nearer than heaven to earth.
      - Augustus William Hare

No fountain so small but that heaven may be imaged in its bosom.
      - Nathaniel Hawthorne

Beyond the clouds and beyond the tomb.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans

Dreams cannot picture a world so fair; sorrow and death may not enter there.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans

Eye hath not seen it, my gentle boy!
  Ear hath not heard its deep songs of joy;
    Dreams cannot picture a world so fair--
      Sorrow and death may not enter there;
        Time doth not breathe on its fadeless bloom,
          For beyond the clouds, and beyond the tomb,
            It is there, it is there, my child!
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans, The Better Land

All this and heaven too.
      - Matthew (Mathew) Henry

All this, and Heaven too!
      - Philip Henry,
        Mathew Henry's Life Philip Henry (p. 70)

Just are the ways of heaven; from Heaven proceed
  The woes of man: Heaven doom'd the Greeks to bleed.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios"), The Odyssey
         (bk. VIII, l. 128), (Pope's translation)

The poets fabulously fancied that the giants scaled heaven by heaping mountain upon mountain. What was their fancy is the gospel truth. If you would get to heaven you must climb thither by putting Mount Sion upon Mount Sinai.
      - Bishop John Henry Hopkins

Nothing is difficult to mortals; we strive to reach heaven itself in our folly.
  [Lat., Nil mortalibus arduum est;
    Coelum ipsum petimus stultitia.]
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus), Carmina
         (bk. I, 3, 37)

He who seldom thinks of heaven is not likely to get thither; as the only way to hit the mark is to keep the eye fixed upon it.
      - Thomas Hartwell Horne

Many might go to heaven with half the labor they go to hell.
      - Ben Jonson

Blessed is the pilgrim, who in every place, and at all times of this his banishment in the body, calling upon the holy name of Jesus, calleth to mind his native heavenly land, where his blessed Master, the King of saints and angels, waiteth to receive him. Blessed is the pilgrim who seeketh not an abiding place unto himself in this world; but longeth to be dissolved, and be with Christ in heaven.
      - Thomas a Kempis
