Who seeks for Heaven alone to save his soul
  May keep the path, but will not reach the goal;
    While he who walks in love may wander far,
      Yet God will bring him where the blessed are.
      - Henry Jackson van Dyke (2),
        Story of the Other Wise Man (V)

So all we know of what they do above
  Is that they happy are, and that they love.
      - Edmund Waller, On the Death of Lady Rich

If one could look a while through the chinks of heaven's door, and see the beauty and bliss of paradise; if he could but lay his ear to heaven, and hear the ravishing music of those seraphic spirits, and the anthems of praise which they sing, how would his soul be exhilarated and transported with joy.
      - Sir William Watson (2)

I have been there, and still would go;
  'Tis like a little heaven below.
      - Isaac Watts, Divine Songs (28)

There is a land of pure delight,
  Where saints immortal reign;
    Infinite day excludes the night,
      And pleasures banish pain.
      - Isaac Watts, Hymns and Spiritual Songs
         (bk. II, 66)

Heaven's gates are not so highly arched as princes' palaces; they that enter there must go upon their knees.
      - Daniel Webster

As much of heaven is visible as we have eyes to see.
      - William Winter

One eye on death, and one full fix'd on heaven.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night V, l. 838)

An everlasting tranquility is, in my imagination, the highest possible felicity, because I know of no felicity on earth higher than that which a peaceful mind and contented heart afford.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
