[ Also see Death Desolation Despair Devil Eternity Future Futurity Heat Heaven Misery Pain Paradise Punishment Religion Remorse Retribution ]

An immortality of pain and tears; an infinity of wretchedness and despair; the blackness of darkness across which conscience will forever shoot her clear and ghastly flashes--like lightning streaming over a desert when midnight and tempest are there; weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth; long, long eternity, and things that will make eternity seem longer--making each moment seem eternity--oh, miserable, condition of the damned!
      - Richard Fuller (1)

Weave the warp, and weave the woof,
  The winding sheet of Edward's race;
    Give ample room and verge enough
      The characters of Hell to trace.
      - Thomas Gray, Bard (canto II)

Hell is full of good intentions.
  [Sp., El infierno es lleno de buenas intenciones.]
      - Antonio Guevera

What will you do in a world where the Holy Spirit never strives; where every soul is fully left to its own depravity; and where there is no leisure for repentance, if there were even the desire, but where there is too much present pain to admit repentance; where they gnaw their tongues with pain, and blaspheme the God of heaven?
      - James Hamilton

No hell will frighten men away from sin; no dread of prospective misery; only goodness can cast hell out of any man, and set up the kingdom of heaven within.
      - Hugh Reginald Haweis

Hell is full of good meanings and wishings.
      - George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum

Hell is no other but a soundlesse pit,
  Where no one beame of comfort peeps in it.
      - Robert Herrick, Noble Numbers--Hell

Hell is paved with good samaritans.
      - William M. Holden

Maybe this world is another planet's hell.
      - Aldous Huxley

Orthodoxy cannot afford to put out the fires of hell.
      - Robert Green Ingersoll

Hell is paved with good intentions.
      - quoted in Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature"),
        Boswell's Life of Johnson

And, bid him go to hell, to hell he goes.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature"),
        London (l. 116)

Dante once said that the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in a period of moral crisis maintain their neutrality.
      - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

The dreadful fear of hell is to be driven out, which disturbs the life of man and renders it miserable, overcasting all things with the blackness of darkness, and leaving no pure, unalloyed pleasure.
  [Lat., Et metus ille foras praeceps Acheruntis agundus,
    Funditis humanam qui vitam turbat ab imo,
      Omnia suffuscans mortis nigrore, neque ullam
        Esse voluptatem liquidam puramque relinquit.]
      - Lucretius (Titus Lucretius Carus),
        De Rerum Natura (III, 37)

Hell has no limits, nor is circumscribed
  In one self place; but where we are is hell
    And where hell is, there must we ever be;
      And to be short, when all the world dissolves,
        And every creature shall be purified,
          All places shall be hell that are not heaven.
      - Christopher Marlowe

Look where he goes! but see he comes again
  Because I stay! Techelles, let us march
    And weary death with bearing souls to hell.
      - Christopher Marlowe, Tamburlane the Great
         (act V, sc. III, l. 75)

A dark
  Illimitable ocean, without bound,
    Without dimension; where length, breadth, and highth,
      And time, and place, are lost; where eldest Night
        And Chaos--ancestors of Nature, hold
          Eternal anarchy, amidst the noise
            Of endless wars, and by confusion stand.
      - John Milton

A universe of death
  Where all life dies, death lives, and nature breeds
    Perverse, all monstrous, all prodigious things
      Abominable, unutterable, and worse
        Than fables yet have feign'd, or fear conceived.
      - John Milton

Hell, their fit habitation, fraught with fire
  Unquenchable, the house of woe and pain.
      - John Milton

Hail, horrors, hail,
  Infernal world! and thou profoundest hell,
    Receive thy new possessor.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 251)

Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 263)

A dungeon horrible, on all sides round,
  As one great furnace, flamed; yet from those flames
    No light, but rather darkness visible
      Serv'd only to discover sights of woe,
        Regions of sorrow, doleful shades, where peace
          And rest can never dwell, hope never comes
            That comes to all; but torture without end.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 61)

Long is the way
  And hard, that out of hell leads up to light.

  Grew darker at their frown.

         (bk. II, l. 719)

On a sudden open fly
  With impetutous recoil and jarring sound
    Th' infernal doors, and on their hinges grate
      Harsh thunder.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. II, l. 879)
