Heaven

As for the Christian theology, can you imagine anything more appallingly idiotic than the Christian idea of heaven? What kind of deity is it that would be capable of creating angels and men to sing his praises day and night to all eternity? It is, of course – the figure of an Oriental despot, with his inane and barbaric vanity.

— Alfred North Whitehead, Dialogues

The mind is its own place, and in itself, can make heaven of Hell, and a hell of Heaven.

— John Milton

Everyone in Heaven is at peace and happy, and they all hop around from cloud to cloud. In heaven you can see your grandparents and everyone you loved once again. And an old man with a long white beard wanders around, that’s God.

— Britney Spears

The human mind is inspired enough when it comes to inventing horrors; it is when it tries to invent a Heaven that it shows itself cloddish.

— Evelyn Waugh
