Emperor Sid Caesar is gone to eternity himself now. He takes with him the gratitude of every one of us who first learned the relief of laughter from this genuinely great performer.
Ben Stein
A man is what he is, not what men say he is. His character no man can touch. His character is what he is before his God and his Judge; and only himself can damage that. His reputation is what men say he is. That can be damaged; but reputation is for time, character is for eternity.
John Bartholomew Gough
[Magic] can guide people to the very edge of reason – and then push them off. Thoughts collapse for a moment and the mind is free to just experience. Magic is a window to eternity.
Patrick Martin
An easygoing person is probably more accessible to the realization of eternity–the endless flow of life and death–than one who takes his prospects and duties overseriously. It is the overserious who are truly frivolous.
Eric Hoffer
The evolution of our spirit is blazed on the dark background of eternity by our individual wakes. Every person can, if he/she wishes, leave a more or less brilliant wake behind them.
Bertrand Russell
In times of hurt and discouragement, it may be consoling for all of us to recall that no one can do anything permanently to us that will last for eternity. Only we ourselves can affect our eternal progression.
Marvin J. Ashton
Objects close to the eye shut out much larger objects on the horizon; and splendors born only of the earth eclipse the stars. So a man sometimes covers up the entire disk of eternity with a dollar, and quenches transcendent glories with a little shining dust.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
For a person who is dying only eternity counts.
Friedrich Durrenmatt
And can eternity belong to me, Poor pensioner on the bounties of an hour?

Alfred Armand Montapert
Love is not written on paper, for paper can be erased. Nor is it etched on stone, for stone can be broken. But it is inscribed on a heart and there it shall remain forever.
Every present moment will offer itself as a window onto eternity, a doorway to the infinite.
Deepak Chopra
A country, after all, is not something you build as the pharaohs built the pyramids, and then leave standing there to defy eternity. A country is something that is built every day out of certain basic shared values.
Pierre Trudeau
Meditation speaks. It speaks in silence. It reveals. It reveals to the aspirant that matter and spirit are one, quantity and quality are one, the immanent and the transcendent are one. It reveals that life can never be the mere existence of seventy or eighty years between birth and death, but is, rather, Eternity itself.
Sri Chinmoy
I have been blessed to see visions of eternity; and events in my future that have been important for me to foresee, have been revealed to me.

Allen Ginsberg
What the creeping crud is that?” [Percy] demanded. “You’re inside a giant glowing chicken-man!” “Hawk!” I yelled. I decided that if I survived this day I would have to make sure this guy never met Sadie. They’d probably take turns insulting me for the rest of eternity.
Rick Riordan
Farewell until eternity, where you and I shall not find ourselves together.
Isidore Ducasse Lautreamont
Eternity will be wonderful, but there is one thing heaven will not contain, and that is the call, the possibility, and the privilege of living a supernatural life here and now by faith, before we meet Jesus face to face.
Francis Schaeffer
Nothing exists from eternity but God, and God is not the matter or a part of any creature, but only the maker.
William Ames
Everything that occurs in the temple is uplifting and ennobling. It speaks of life here and life beyond the grave. It speaks of the importance of the individual as a child of God. It speaks of the importance of the family and the eternity of the marriage relationship.
Gordon B. Hinckley
I am in terror of the infinity before me, having come through the one behind bringing no knowledge I can take on.
Samuel R. Delany
We all move on the fringes of eternity and are sometimes granted vistas through fabric of illusion.

Every human soul is of infinite value, eternal, free; no human being, therefore, is so placed as not to have within his reach, in himself and others, objects adequate to infinite endeavor.
Arthur Balfour
What nature delivers to us is never stale. Because what nature creates has eternity in it.
Isaac Bashevis Singer
Venice is eternity itself.
Joseph Brodsky
I’m not surprised people are being slaughtered, people are being martyred. Our hope isn’t in this world as believers, it’s in the eternity. To be absent of body is to be present with the Lord, so they are dying for something that is real and will last forever.
Russell Okung
The moon and sun are travelers through eternity. Even the years wander on. Whether drifting through life on a boat or climbing toward old age leading a horse, each day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.
Matsuo Basho
A parent gives life, but as parent, gives no more. A murderer takes life, but his deed stops there. A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.
Henry Adams
Use career to develop yourself. Have fun with it. Dedicate your activities and your career, to eternity, and to enlightenment.

As I go clowning my sentimental way into eternity, wrestling with all my problems of estrangement and communion, sincerity and simulation, ambition and acquiescence, I shuttle between worrying whether I matter at all and whether anything else matters but me.

A moving body whose motion was not retarded by any resisting force would continue to move to all eternity.
Hermann von Helmholtz
No man can pass into eternity, for he is already in it.

but a find;
not a greeting…
but a proclamation;
not an outward fashion…
but inward grace;
not a day…
but an eternity.
Anderson Luis de Abreu Oliveira
Every situation–nay, every moment–is of infinite worth; for it is the representative of a whole eternity.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Life draws us in different directions, sometimes simultaneously. When you follow the direction that life draws you in, if you stay in a very powerful state of mind, then you’ll see eternity.
Frederick Lenz
To every one of us there must come a time when the whole universe will be found to have been a dream, when we find the soul is infinitely better than its surroundings. It is only a question of time, and time is nothing in the infinite.
Sai Baba
Death is nothing else but going home to God, the bond of love will be unbroken for all eternity.
Mother Teresa
If souls continue to exist, how does the air contain them from eternity?
Marcus Aurelius
There is nothing more lonely than eternity. And nothing is more cozy for us than to be a human being. This indeed is another contradiction-how can we keep the bonds of our humanness and still venture gladly and purposefully into the absolute loneliness of eternity?
Carlos Castaneda
The mind is like a lake. It reflects eternity when it’s very still. If ripples appear, lots of them, then the reflection is not clear. We lose the clarity of the perfect reflection.
Frederick Lenz
Where eldest Night And Chaos, ancestors of Nature, hold Eternal anarchy amidst the noise Of endless wars, and by confusion stand; For hot, cold, moist, and dry, four champions fierce, Strive here for mast’ry.
John Milton
For our hope in the future is cosmic, forging human history into eternity.
David Paul
Girls, there are poets who learn from you to say, what you, in your aloneness, are; and they learn through you to live distantness, as the evenings through the great stars become accustomed to eternity.
Rainer Maria Rilke
I chose to be a maths teacher because I thought the marking would be easy. You’d just tick and cross, whereas if you’re an English teacher, you’ve got to read essays. Then they said I had to analyse the methodology. It takes an eternity, it’s insane!
Romesh Ranganathan
Bow and offer your meditation to Eternity, as you would offer a Flower to your lover.
Frederick Lenz
Parallel lines meet in eternity but
Parallel lives meet for tea
Gary Gach
We measure our days out in steps of uncertainty not turning to see how far we’ve come. And peer down the highway from here to eternity and reach out for love on the run.
Al Stewart
We conceive of immortality as having a beginning, but no end; but we conceive of eternity as having neither beginning nor end. Hence it is proper to speak of eternity as the attribute of God, but of immortality as the attribute of man.
Horace Mann
My parents have been dead for many years, and when your folks are gone there is nobody standing between you and eternity.
Tony Parsons
Remember, Angels are both God’s messengers and God’s message, witness to eternity in time, to the presence of the divine amidst the ordinary. Every moment of every day is riddled by their traces.
Forrest Church
Eternity isn’t some later time. Eternity isn’t a long time. Eternity has nothing to do with time. Eternity is that dimension of here and now which thinking and time cuts out. This is it. And if you don’t get it here, you won’t get it anywhere. And the experience of eternity right here and now is the function of life.
Joseph Campbell
It’ll take you eternities to get rid of me,’ she adds sadly, which makes me jealous, I want her to say I’ll never get rid of her – I wanta be chased till eternity till I catch her.
Jack Kerouac
Break my heart for what breaks yours. Everything I am for you kingdom’s cause, as I walk from nothing to eternity.
Kiera Cass
All at Once Is What Eternity Is.
Kenneth Patchen
The soul is both the most fragile and most resilient thing about you; a healthy soul is what holds you together when your world falls apart. Since you will carry your soul into eternity, it’s worth checking up on it at least as often as your teeth.
John Ortberg
Speech is of time, silence is of eternity.
Thomas Carlyle
The truth properly means the sum of all true propositions, what omniscience would assert, the whole ideal system of qualities andrelations which the world has exemplified or will exemplify. The truth is all things seen under the form of eternity.
George Santayana
I love you Sarah. For all eternity, I love you.
James K. Polk
The unfolding of our friendship with the Father will be a never-ending revelation strretching on into eternity
Catherine Marshall
The soul’s dark cottage, batter’d and decay’d, Lets in new light through chinks that Time has made. Stronger by weakness, wiser men become As they draw near to their eternal home: Leaving the old, both worlds at once they view That stand upon the threshold of the new.
Edmund Waller
People who’ve had any genuine spiritual experience always know that they don’t know. They are utterly humbled before mystery. They are in awe before the abyss of it all, in wonder at eternity and depth, and a Love, which is incomprehensible to the mind.
Richard Rohr
Sometimes it takes a brush with eternity – a crash, an illness, some shock to the system – to get you really thinking about what you want to do with your limited time here, and why you’re living on this wobbling dirt clod in the first place.
Hampton Sides
The steward, according to custom, had stopped all the clocks. This, in the language of Narouz, said “Your stay with us is so brief, let us not be reminded of the flight of the hours.”
Lawrence Durrell
No mariner ever enters upon a more uncharted sea than does the average human being born in the 20th century. Our ancestors know their way from birth through eternity; we are puzzled about the day after tomorrow.
Walter Lippmann
The time is short. Eternity is long. It is the time of decision.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
I can be by myself because I’m never lonely, I’m simply alone, living in my heavily populated solitude, a harum-scarum of infinity and eternity, and Infinity and Eternity seem to take a liking to the likes of me.
Bohumil Hrabal
There is no such word as ‘too late,’ in the wide world — nay, not in the universe. What! shall we, whose atom of time is but a fragment out of an ever-present eternity — shall we, so long as we live, or even at our life’s ending, dare to cry out to the Eternal One, ‘It is too late!’
Sure there is none but fears a future state;
And when the most obdurate swear they do not,
Their trembling hearts belie their boasting tongues.
John Dryden
If there were no immortality there would be no need for temples. There would be no need for eternal marriage if there were no eternity.
Gordon B. Hinckley
All I can say is I look for perpetual conflicts and struggles in this life, and I hope for no other peace, only a cross, while on this side of eternity.

Pope Leo I
Little drops of water, little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean, and the pleasant land.
So the little minutes, humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages of eternity.
Julia Abigail Fletcher Carney
For Karen Holmes (in From Here to Eternity), I studied voice for three months to get rid of my English accent. I changed my hair to blonde. I knew I could be sexy if I had to.
Deborah Kerr
We reduce the deity to vulgar fractions. We place our own little ambitions and label them ?divine messages?. With our short sight we affect to take a comprehensive view of eternity.
Paul Laurence Dunbar

William Blake
The finest workers in stone are not copper or steel tools, but the gentle touches of air and water working at their leisure with a liberal allowance of time.

Thomas Boston

Death. An instantaneous state, without past or future. Indispensable for entering eternity.
Simone Weil
Time is heavy sometimes; imagine how heavy eternity must be.
Emile M. Cioran
Most of us believe that we possess some aspect of eternity that will insure some kind of survival beyond death. The only problem with those strategies is they forget that only God is eternal. We are finite.

Time’s violence rends the soul, by the rent eternity enters.
Simone Weil
The very idea of carrying my memory into eternity devastated me, and I took refuge in atheism.
Taylor Caldwell
From Here to Eternity’ happens to be fourteen-carat entertainment. The main trouble is that it is too entertaining for a film in which love affairs flounder, one sweet guy is beaten to death, and a man of high principles is mistaken for a saboteur and killed on a golf course.
Manny Farber
The most important thing in your life is not what you do; it’s who you become. That’s what you will take into eternity.

Eternity ended ten years ago.
Brandon Sanderson
Too easy to lose the way. Too hard to keep from unraveling when there’s nothing to remind you of who you are and where you should be. Another eternity passes in the flick of an eyelash.
Diana Rowland

Rick Warren
Remember that I will be here’, he said resolutely. ‘For an eternity (…). I would wait for you for an eternity.

Jean Baudrillard
I will burn, but this is a mere event. We shall continue our discussion in eternity.
Michael Servetus
There is zero, and there is eternity, and there is mortality, but there is no ultimate.

Frederick Lenz
And through the opening or clearing in your own awareness may come flashing higher truths, subtler revelations, profound connections. For a moment you might even touch eternity.
Ken Wilber
Heaven has not learned of my arrival, and my departure will not in the least diminish it beauty and grandeur. I will sleep underground, for us ephemeral mortals, the only eternity is the moment and drinking to the moment is better than weeping for it.
Omar Khayyam
She saw the myriad gods, and beyond God his own ineffable eternity; she saw that there were ranges of life beyond our present life, ranges of mind beyond our present mind and above these she saw the splendors of the spirit.
Sri Aurobindo
In tantra we have complete faith in the winds of eternity. The key to tantra yoga is to feel that you are not the doer, that you cannot possibly act. All you have to do in life is to accept.
Frederick Lenz
I am aware that many divines are far more marvelous than I am, and that I cannot wholly appreciate merits so far transcending my own. Nevertheless, even after making allowances under this head, I cannot but think that Omnipotence operating through all eternity might have produced something better.
Bertrand Russell
There have been meetings of only a moment which have left impressions for life …for eternity. No one can understand that mysterious thing we call ‘influence’ …yet everyone of us continually exerts influence, either to heal, to bless, to leave marks of beauty; or to wound, to hurt, to poison, to stain other lives.
J.B. Miller
The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home.

Alan Watts
Men, you are in a battle. You are in a war. The stakes of this war and its casualties are higher than a checkmark in the win or loss column. Lives will be lost. Eternities will be shaped. Destinies will either be discovered or dismissed. Dreams will be attained or relinquished.
Tony Evans
If we haven’t learned to be worshipers it doesn’t really matter how well we do anything else. Worship changes us or it has not been worship. To stand before the Holy One of eternity is to change. Worship begins in holy expectancy, it ends in holy obedience.
Erwin W. Lutzer
There are moments when I think it will never end, that it will last indefinitely. It’s like the rain. Here the rain, like everything else, suggests permanence and eternity. I say to myself: it’s raining today and it’s going to rain tomorrow and the next day, the next week and the next century.
Elie Wiesel
If there is a great white throne judgment in which all unbelievers are going to be judged and sentenced to an eternity in hell, shouldn’t that motivate us right now to share Christ with as many people as possible?
Robert Jeffress
The traditional flowers of courtship are the traditional flowers of the grave, delivered to the victim before the kill. The cadaver is dressed up and made up and laid down and ritually violated and consecrated to an eternity of being used.
Andrea Dworkin
Politics is for the present, but an equation is for eternity.
Albert Einstein
If time and space, as sages say, Are things which cannot be, The sun which does not feel decay No greater is than we. So why, Love, should we ever pray To live a century? The butterfly that lives a day Has lived eternity.

LeAnn Rimes

Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time.

Hermann Hesse
When their minds mingle with His magnanimity, something of eternity rubs off on their imaginations.
Geoffrey Wood
‘Mormonism’ has made me all I am; and the grace, the power, and the wisdom of God will make me all that I ever will be, either in time or in eternity.

Randy Alcorn
No labor is hard, no time is long, wherein the glory of eternity is the mark we level at.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The mind, in short, works on the data it receives very much as a sculptor works on his block of stone. In a sense the statue stoodthere from eternity. But there were a thousand different ones beside it, and the sculptor alone is to thank for having extricated this one from the rest.
William James
And in addition to its practical uses, it would seem to work for cosmetic purposes.

Cassandra Clare
It takes less time to do a thing right, than it does to explain why you did it wrong.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Basilea Schlink

Joseph Addison
But Greece and her foundations are Built below the tide of war, Based on the crystalline sea Of thought and its eternity; Her citizens, imperial spirits, Rule the present from the past, On all this world of men inherits Their seal is set.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
The family is the most important unit in time and in eternity and is ordained of God.

Eternity becomes more beautiful as we age, if we age well. If we age poorly, then we don’t improve our minds; we don’t refine all the aspects of our being.

Eternity! thou pleasing dreadful thought! Through what variety of untried being, Through what new scenes and changes must we pass!
Joseph Addison

Antoine Arnauld
I am a moment illuminating eternity….I am affirmation…I am ecstasy.
Alexander Scriabin

Sherrilyn Kenyon
I will pause to consider this eternity from which the subsequent ones derive.

Yehuda Amichai
We have this recurring dream that we’re human beings, that we have bodies, that we’re in time and space, that there is birth and death. To awaken from the dream of life is to be conscious of eternity.
Frederick Lenz
Angels live no place, as God lives no place. They live in the space of eternity, in the center of our hearts, and sometimes I think we each serve as the channels and angels of God, touched by wings of silence, pushed to angelic acts.
Sophy Burnham
Pray for ‘all men.’ We usually pray more for things than we do for men. Our prayers should be thrown across their pathway as they rush in their downward course to a lost eternity.
Edward McKendree Bounds
God hath given to man a short time here upon earth, and yet upon this short time eternity depends.
Jeremy Taylor
A moment is a concentrated eternity.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Man may penetrate the outer reaches of the universe, he may solve the very secret of eternity itself but for me, the ultimate human experience is to witness the flawless execution of the hit-and-run.
Branch Rickey
In the light of eternity we shall see that what we desired would have been fatal to us, and that what we would have avoided was essential to our well-being.
Francois Fenelon
Eternity to a child offers goodness, and eternal life to a man is essentially corrupting because it involves a certain amount of vanity to embrace it.
Anna Friel
There is no ground for supposing that matter and energy existed before [the Big Bang] and were suddenly galvanized into action. For what could distinguish that moment from all other moments in eternity? It is simpler to postulate creation ex nihilo-Divine will constituting Nature from nothingness.
E. T. Whittaker
Everything vanishes, falls apart, doesn’t it? Nature is always the same but nothing in her that appears to us lasts. Our art must render the thrill of her permanence, along with her elements, the appearance of all her changes. It must give us a taste of her Eternity.
Paul Cezanne
Who sings of all of Love’s eternity
Who shines so bright
In all the songs of Love’s unending spells?
Holy lightning strikes all that’s evil
Teaching us to love for goodness sake.
Hear the music of Love Eternal
Teaching us to reach for goodness sake.
Jon Anderson
God loves a great story, and all of us who know Him will recall and celebrate and continue to live in that story for all eternity.
Randy Alcorn
He’s never fought with religion; what is the point of railing against such beauty, such intimate theatre, such chime of eternity? He can treasure it without believing in it.
Ian McDonald
Time, though in Eternity, applied
To motion, measures all things durable
By present, past, and future.
John Milton
Each woman who lives in the light of eternity can fulfill her vocation, no matter if it is in marriage, in a religious order, or in a worldly profession.
Edith Stein
I ask no risen dust to teach me immortality; I am conscious of eternal life.
Theodore Parker
A year is an eternity in politics – though less than a moment in history.
Eliot Spitzer
I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That’s just not part of my religious makeup.
Barack Obama
Not listening is probably the commonest unkindness of married life, and one that creates – more devastatingly than an eternity of forgotten birthdays and misguided Christmas gifts – an atmosphere of not loving and not caring.
Judith Viorst
I am away from home and must always write home, even if any home of mine has long since floated away into eternity.
Franz Kafka
Nobody ever lies about being lonely.
Montgomery Clift
This is the artist, then, life’s hungry man, the glutton of eternity, beauty’s miser, glory’s slave.

Frederick Lenz
I invite you to bow your head and quietly whisper the prayer that will change your eternity: Jesus I believe in you and I receive you.
Rick Warren
To make the best use of your life, you must never forget two truths: First, compared with eternity, life is extremely brief. Second, earth is only a temporary residence. You won’t be here long, so don’t get too attached.
Rick Warren
The experience of Eternity right here and now, is the function of life.
Joseph Campbell
The end we ought to propose to ourselves is to become, in this life, the most perfect worshipers of God we can possibly be, as we hope to be through all eternity.
Brother Lawrence
Enlightenment is an ocean of awareness that slides through the human part of us and dissolves it, and leaves us forever in eternity.
Frederick Lenz
Daily prayers can help us keep on the path that leads to eternal life. We are very unlikely to stray if we offer a humble, simple prayer at least each morning and evening to express thanks and to seek divine guidance.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
God doesn’t promise tomorrow, he does promise eternity.
Tony Snow
I’m extremely well recognized in Korea just because of what I do on the ice, and there is a lack of that in Canada because hockey is our sport and it will be for eternity.
Patrick Chan
Time is given us that we may take care for eternity; and eternity will not be too long to regret the loss of our time if we have misspent it.
Francois Fenelon
Immortality is overrated, living for an eternity would get really old.
Ray William Johnson
Nature is our friend – trees, squirrels, grass, fields, meadows, oceans – without people. Hike. Walk. Stroll. Bike. Swim. Be in a still place and feel eternity. Have a great time. Just feel it.
Frederick Lenz
When you no longer are compelled by desire and fear . . . when you have seen the radiance in eternity from all forms of time . . . when you follow your bliss . . . doors will open where you would not have thought there were doors . . . and the world will step in and help.
Joseph Campbell
Death is something inevitable. When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe I have made that effort and that is, therefore, why I will sleep for the eternity.
Nelson Mandela
Surely, we are provided with senses as well fitted to penetrate the spaces of the real, the substantial, the eternal, as these outward are to penetrate the material universe. Veias, Menu, Zoroaster, Socrates, Christ, Shakespeare, Swedenborg,–these are some of our astronomers.
Henry David Thoreau
it is in the oral traditions of the villages that the arts of India are really alive. The brief Western immortality of museums is pointless to people who have seen eternity in their earth.
Santha Rama Rau
Every great mind seeks to labor for eternity. All men are captivated by immediate advantages; great minds alone are excited by the prospect of distant good.
Friedrich Schiller
God does not think; he creates. He does not exist; he is eternal.
Soren Kierkegaard
Humanity is a river of light running from the ex-eternity to eternity.
Khalil Gibran
We are but shadows: we are, not endowed with real life, and all that seems most real about us is but the thinnest substance of a dream,–till the heart be touched. That touch creates us–then we begin to be–thereby we are beings of reality and inheritors of eternity.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Day is the Child of Time, And Day must cease to be: But Night is without a sire, And cannot expire, One with Eternity.
Richard Henry Stoddard
But those who chose to reject God during their lifetime on earth will be separated from him for eternity. This is not God’s desire, but man’s own choice. God holds every man accountable for his rejection of Christ.
Billy Graham
Love stories seek to demonstrate the great truth of love: that we discover eternity in a moment that dies immediately after.
Richard Flanagan
loneliness has its roots in words,in internal conversation that nodbody answers,solitude has it’s roots in the great silence of eternity.
Miley Cyrus
Life has its share of fears and failures. Sometimes things fall short. Sometimes people fail us, or economies or businesses or governments fail us. But one thing in time or eternity does not fail us-the pure love of Christ.
Jeffrey R. Holland
The kinds of truth that art gives us many, many times are small truths. They don’t have the resonance of an encyclical from the Pope stating an eternal truth, but they partake of the quality of eternity. There is a sort of timeless delight in them.
Seamus Heaney
Time will discover everything to posterity; it is a babbler, and speaks even when no question is put.
The only way to get our values right is to see, not the beginning, but the end of the way, to see things not only in the light of time but in the light of Eternity.
William Barclay
There is a feeling of Eternity in youth which makes us amends for everything. To be young is to be as one of the Immortals.
William Hazlitt
We are not men, to have need of another, an eternal life; we are women, and for us one moment with man we love is everlasting Paradise, one moment far from the man we love is everlasting hell. It is here on earth that we women love out eternity

For me the present is merged in eternity. I may not sacrifice the latter for the present.
Mahatma Gandhi
A sound head, an honest heart, and an humble spirit are the three best guides through time and to eternity.
Walter Scott
Time is a most precious asset. Would you consider investing more of your time in the things of eternity in order to merit the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost and to benefit more fully from His influence?
Keith K. Hilbig
I go through life as a transient on his way to eternity, made in the image of God but with that image debased, needing to be taught how to meditate, to worship, to think.
Donald Coggan
There are two kinds of beauty; there is a beauty which God gives at birth, and which withers as a flower. And there is a beauty which God grants when by His grace men are born again. That kind of beauty never vanishes but blooms eternally.
Abraham Kuyper
We are nauseated by the sight of trivial personalities decomposing in the eternity of print.
Virginia Woolf
The enlightened teacher is someone who has become absorbed in eternity. While they may have a body like others, the essence of their being is light.
Frederick Lenz
How mankind defers from day to day the best it can do, and the most beautiful things it can enjoy, without thinking that every day may be the last one, and that lost time is lost eternity!
Max Muller
People of Orphalese, beauty is life when life unveils her holy face. But you are life and you are the veil. Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror. But you are eternity and you are the mirror.
Khalil Gibran
High above all earthly lower happiness, the blessedness of the eight Beatitudes towers into the heaven itself. They are white with the snows of eternity; they give a space, a meaning, a dignity to all the rest of the earth over which they brood.
Arthur Penrhyn Stanley
Human experience resembles the battered moon that tracks us in cycles of light and darkness, of life and death, now seeking out and now stealing away from the sun that gives it light and symbolizes eternity.
Eugene Kennedy
The crows maintain that a single crow could destroy the heavens. There is no doubt of that, but it proves nothing against the heavens, for heaven simply means: the impossibility of crows.
Franz Kafka
Just as every drop of the ocean carries the taste of the ocean, so does every moment carry the taste of eternity.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
All the doctrines that have flourished in the world about immortality have hardly affected man’s natural sentiment in the face of death.
George Santayana
Pythagoras, when he was asked what time was, answered that it was the soul of this world.
We take ourselves so seriously moment by moment, but India shows you a sense of eternity. You’re one little ant on a hill. You’re part of life, but you’re not the whole thing.
Felicity Kendal
Prayer gives us light by which to see and to judge from God’s perspective and from eternity. That is why you must not give up on praying!
Pope John Paul II
Once more there sounded within me the terrible warning that there is only one life for all men, that there is only one life for all men, that there is no other and that all that can be enjoyed must be enjoyed here. In eternity no other chance will be given to us.
Nikos Kazantzakis
Only when Eternity takes Time by the hand, Only when infinity weds the finite’s thought, Can man be free from himself and live with God.

Nathanael Emmons
Read not the Times, read the Eternities.
Henry David Thoreau
If you see things as in eternity, you are less a prey to the pain of their passing, and so you can learn the more easily not to clutch at them as they pass… you learn to be reverent and not proudly possessive.
Gerald Vann
Like Jonah, the whale had swallowed me; unlike him, I believed I would spend eternity inside the belly of the beast.
Bob Kerrey
Nothing is eternal but that which is done for God and others. That which is done for self dies.
John H Aughey
I am satisfied that happiness in marriage is not so much a matter of romance as it is an anxious concern for the comfort and well-being of one’s companion. Any man who will make his wife’s comfort his first concern will stay in love with her throughout their lives and through the eternity yet to come
Gordon B. Hinckley
He who dies for his country will live in eternity.
Monteiro Lobato
I want eternity. I was born for greater things.
Stanislaus Kostka
A long and wicked life followed by five minutes of perfect grace gets you into Heaven. An equally long life of decent living and good works followed by one outburst of taking the name of the lord in vain- then have a heart attack at that moment and be damned for eternity. Is that the system?
Robert A. Heinlein
The Jew – is the symbol of eternity. … He is the one who for so long had guarded the prophetic message and transmitted it to all mankind. A people such as this can never disappear.

The wisdom of the years is confusing. Only the wisdom of eternity is edifying.
Soren Kierkegaard

Russell M. Nelson
Eternity was in our lips and eyes.
William Shakespeare
To Zen, time and eternity are one.
D.T. Suzuki
Without time,” the angel said, “you have only the bottomless, shapeless mire of eternity.” “FYI, philosophy bores me.” “Not philosophy. Reality. Time is what gives life significance.
J.R. Ward
The truth of the matter is, we all come to prayer with a tangled mass of motives altruistic and selfish, merciful and hateful, loving and bitter. Frankly, this side of eternity we will never unravel the good from the bad, the pure from the impure. God is big enough to receive us with all our mixture.
Richard J. Foster
Southward, two mighty ranges of the Appalachians shouldered their way into the blue distance like tremendous caravans marching across eternity.
Hervey Allen
When Time is spent, Eternity begins.
Helen Hunt Jackson

Deepak Chopra
So our human life but dies down to its root, and still puts forth its green blade to eternity.

Eternity to the godly is a day that has no sunset; eternity to the wicked is a night that has no sunrise.
Thomas Watson
O let not Time deceive you,
You cannot conquer Time.
W. H. Auden
I do assert that one prepares for eternity not by being religious and keeping the rules, but by living fully, loving wastefully, and daring to be all that each of us has the capacity to be.
John Shelby Spong
My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be other than it is, not in the future, not in the past, not in all eternity.
Friedrich Nietzsche
It is important for those of us who are Christian to remember that our physical lives don’t last forever. Our souls will last an eternity, and thus we should place even more emphasis on the health of our souls than the health of our bodies.
Michael Huffington
It is important to gain knowledge, yes, but any advantage we will have in the eternal life to come will be a knowledge, I am sure, of those saving principles upon which our eternal life will depend.

The dream is already ended and we’re already awake in the golden eternity.
Jack Kerouac

And we learn all so painfully,
That we may spare this hour’s term
To practice for Eternity.

Frederick Lenz
Joy springs from a life lived with eternity’s values in view.
Charles R. Swindoll

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
For those who have experienced the joy of being alone with nature there is really little need for me to say much more; for those who have not, no words of mine can ever describe the powerful, almost mystical knowledge of beauty and eternity that come, suddenly, and all unexpected.
Jane Goodall
Eternity is selfless giving. Eternity sends forth all of the worlds, the very fabric of existence.
Frederick Lenz
I wish, by the way, that I knew who separated Time from eternity; there seems only one thing to me, and I always feel that I am in eternity.
Georgiana Burne-Jones
If eternity had a season, it would be midsummer. Autumn, winter, spring are all change and passage, but at the height of summer the year stands poised. It’s only a passing moment, but even as it passes the heart knows it cannot change.
Ursula K. Le Guin
In eternity everything is just beginning.
Elias Canetti
One definition of eternity is that we are not alone on this planet, that there are those who’ve gone before and those who will come, and that there is a community of spirits.
Rita Dove
No matter how reclusive we tend to be, we picture the after-life as a community of souls. It is one thing to seek privacy in this life; it is another to face eternity alone.
Robert Breault
Eternity is not ever-lasting time but the real, unfading, indestructible, and timeless Present, for, as Schroedinger said, the present is the only thing that has no end.
Ken Wilber
A moment is a mighty thing
Beyond the soul’s imagination;
For in it, though we trace it not,
How much there crowds of varied lot
How much of life, life cannot see,
Darts onward to eternity!
Robert Montgomery

We who are alive at this moment are only an infinitesimal part of something that has existed for eternity and will continue when there is no longer anything to show that earth existed. Still, we must feel and believe that we are all.

Johnny Mathis
Eternity is a circle, a serpent that swallows its own tail.
Elsa Barker
Today is the first day of the rest of your short, brutish existence as a sentient creature before being snuffed out into utter nothingness for all eternity.
Matt Groening
We’re going to serve in eternity. We’re not going to sit around on clouds; you know this whole idea of heaven is wearing white robes with angels and play a harp. To me, that would be hell. I can’t think of anything more boring.
Rick Warren
In this world men struggle and suffer vainly, finding pleasure only in the bright madness of battle; dying, their souls enter a gray misty realm of clouds and icy winds, to wander cheerlessly throughout eternity.
Robert E. Howard
Most people can’t bear to sit in church for an hour on Sundays. How are they supposed to live somewhere very similar to it for eternity?
Mark Twain
For the salvation of his soul the Muslim digs a well. It would be a fine thing if each of us were to leave behind a school, or a well, or something of the sort, so that life would not pass by and retreat into eternity without a trace.
Anton Chekhov
Try to feel that you are beyond time and space when you practice meditation. Go beyond this world, beyond time, beyond life, not a feeling of being spaced out, but in touch with the moment and with eternity.
Frederick Lenz
What happens after death is so unspeakably glorious that our imagination and our feelings do not suffice to form even an approximate conception of it. The dissolution of our time-bound form in eternity brings no loss of meaning.
Carl Jung
What is certain in death is somewhat softened by what is uncertain; it is an indefiniteness in the time, which holds a certain relation to the infinite, and what is called eternity.
Jean de la Bruyere
Gods die with men who have conceived them. But the god-stuff roars eternally, like the sea, with too vast a sound to be heard.
D. H. Lawrence
Represent to yourself a dark city all burning and stinking with fire and brimstone. The damned are in the depth of hell within this woful city, where they suffer unspeakable torments in all their senses and members. Consider above all the eternity of their pains, which above all things makes hell intolerable.
Saint Francis de Sales
She stood lost in eternity wearing a crazy dress, watching the immense sky.
Angela Carter
Brothers, what we do in life……..echoes in eternity.
Russell Crowe
Thinking gets you nowhere. It may be a fine and noble aid in academic studies, but you can’t think your way out of emotional difficulties. That takes something altogether different. You have to make yourself passive then, and just listen. Re-establish contact with a slice of eternity.
Etty Hillesum
If time has no beginning and no end, everything is happening, will happen, has happened, at the same moment. All eternity in a single moment.
Shekhar Kapur
Eternity is a glorious word, but eternity is ice.
Dejan Stojanovic
Feel the wind. This wind blows from world to world and from life to death. This is the wind of dharma. Be in love with the wind. It is an intimate lover. It enraptures you. It blows you through eternity.
Frederick Lenz
Life, like a dome of many-coloured glass,
Stains the white radiance of eternity.
Percy Bysshe Shelley

Hermann Hesse
We are citizens of eternity.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
but that’s alright because now everything’ll be alright & we’ll soothe the forever boys & girls & before we’re thru we’ll find a name for this Goddam Golden Eternity & tell a story too
Jack Kerouac
God’s grace is at its best in weakness, so we need never fear our weakness. In fact, these weaknesses will determine in what way we shall glorify God for all eternity.
Mother Angelica
Men spend their life down here in the worship of petty (or mean) interests and the search of perishable things, and with that (“et avec cela”, Fr.) they pretend to perpetuate for all eternity their self (“moi”, Fr.) so hardly worthy (“digne”, Fr.) of it.
African Spir
I’ve always believed in the adage that the secret of eternal youth is arrested development.
Alice Roosevelt Longworth
For who shall defile the temples of the ancient gods, a cruel and violent death shall be his fate, and never shall his soul find rest unto eternity. Such is the curse of Amon-Ra, king of all the gods.
Griffin Jay
Ever afterward, though the dance of creation change around me in the hall of eternity, I shall be the same.
Anandamayi Ma
When you … see our Father, you will see a being with whom you have long been acquainted, and He will receive you into His arms, and you will be ready to fall into His embrace and kiss Him. … You will be so glad and joyful. … When you are qualified and purified, … you can endure the glory of eternity.
Brigham Young
You weren’t put on earth to be remembered. You were put here to prepare for eternity.
Rick Warren
Why did you make it so hard for me? I’d rather empty the ocean with a sieve. I do it for you. Or count the grains of sand on every beach. All for you. There are so many people, so many countries. But I have time. All the time in the world. Eternity.
Grant Morrison
In order for him to believe sincerely in eternity, others had to share in this belief, because a belief that no one else shares is called schizophrenia.
Victor Pelevin
The God we worship is no respecter of persons, but He is a respecter of men’s rights, and a guardian of them-a fact clearly shown in the heaven-inspired Constitution of our country, and in the Gospel itself, which might be termed the Constitution of Eternity.
Orson F. Whitney
The path of love. Good luck. May your love guide you through the bardo to eternity.
Frederick Lenz
Time will explain it all. He is a talker, and needs no questioning before he speaks.

Emily Dickinson
Time is but the shadow of the world upon the background of Eternity.
Jerome K. Jerome
If we consider eternity, into that time never entered; eternity is not an everlasting flux of time, but time is as a short parenthesis in a long period; and eternity had been the same as it is, though time had never been.
John Donne
No individual life is an end in itself. One can live fully only by participating fully in the succession of the generations, in death as well as in life. Some would say (and I am one of them) that we can live fully only by making ourselves answerable to the claims of eternity as to those of time.
Wendell Berry
The sum total of all sums total is eternal (meaning the universe).
[Lat., Summarum summa est aeternum.]
SГ¶ren Kierkegaard has another answer: human existence is possible as existence not in despair, as existence not in tragedy; it is possible as existence in faith… Faith is the belief that in God the impossible is possible, that in Him time and eternity are one, that both life and death are meaningful.
Peter Drucker
Forget the threat of Hell’s infernal flames. The true torture would condemn a man to wait and wait and wait – for an eternity

If you will make your first concern the comfort, the well-being, and the happiness of your companion, sublimating any personal concern to that loftier goal, you will be happy, and your marriage will go on through eternity
Gordon B. Hinckley
The waking dreams of life as most people know them are spiritual experiences, but there is another order of spiritual experience and that’s to be in the garden of the heart, in the perfect stillness, where the white light of eternity meets the white light of eternity.
Frederick Lenz
You exist in time, but you belong to eternity.
Time is the moving imago of the unmoving eternity.
somewhere within sight of the tree of poetry that is eternity wearing the green leaves of time .
R. S. Thomas
The habit of dwelling on the past, has a narrowing as well as a debilitating influence. Behind us, there is a small, – an almost insignificant measure of time; before us, there is an eternity. It is the natural tendency of the mind to magnify the one, and to diminish the other.
Harriet Martineau
In the theater you create a moment, but in that moment, there is a touch, a twinkle of eternity. And not just eternity, but community. . . . That connection is a sense of life for me.

Mother Teresa
In your mid-20s, you think you’ll go on for eternity. Then a point comes where you realise that’s not going to be the case.
Brian O’Driscoll
Nunc fluens facit tempus,nunc stans facit aeternitatum.(The now that passes produces time, the now that remains produces eternity.)

Frederick Lenz
Lives are mere blips on the canvas of eternity.
Robin Sharma
No, mademoiselle, I would not like to see the children’s menu. I have no doubt that the children’s menu itself tastes better than the meals on it. I would like to order Г  la carte. Or don’t you serve fish to minors?
Eoin Colfer
Snatching the eternal out of the desperately fleeting is the great magic trick of human existence.
Tennessee Williams
I have a strong will to love you for eternity.
Milan Kundera
Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life:
Such a Way as gives us breath:
Such a Truth as ends all strife:
Such a Life as killeth death.
Georges Hebert
The beauty of the world and the orderly arrangement of everything celestial makes us confess that there is an excellent and eternal nature, which ought to be worshiped and admired by all mankind.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Every hour that passed added to her grief, because it bore her further away from the living man, and because it was a tiny foretaste of the eternity she would have to spend without him.
J. K. Rowling
Feel eternity around you. Not as an idea, not as a nice intellectualization, but to really feel it; not to be some religious fanatic who’s strung out on some weird idea of salvation to the exclusion of common sense.
Frederick Lenz
I wondered how I looked to her, in that place, and knew that even in a place that was nothing but knowledge that was the one thing I could not know. That if I look inward I would see only infinite mirrors staring into myself for eternity.
Neil Gaiman

Robert A. Heinlein
Time is a strange thing. It is a whimsical tyrant, which in every century has a different face for all that one says and does.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
God dwells in eternity but time dwells in God. He has already lived all our tomorrows as He has lived all our yesterdays.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
One instant is eternity; / eternity is the now. / When you see through this one instant, / you see through the one who sees.
Wumen Huikai
And if the years vanish in their course, they are still only successions of days that pass right through us as we pass through them in order to seek constantly what You have to show us… to remain constantly in Your embrace, just as the whole of time remains in the embrace of eternity.
Adrienne von Speyr
That which is eternal in Woman lifts us above.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
We are not alone.  Even now there are thousands of beings in heaven watching what is going on down here—a ‘great cloud of witnesses,’ the Scripture says.  It reminds me that there is so much more to our existence than what we can see.  What we do reverberates through the heavens and into eternity.
Francis Chan
Eligibility for a temple recommend is not based on financial worth. That has nothing whatever to do with it. It is based on consistent personal behavior, on the goodness of one’s life. It is not concerned with money matters, but rather with things of eternity.
Gordon B. Hinckley
It is only Jesus Christ who has thrown light on life and immortality through the gospel; and because He has done so, and has enabled us by His atoning death and intercession to make the most of this discovery, His gospel is, for all who will, a power of God unto salvation.
Henry Parry Liddon
Forget yourself. Become one with eternity. Become part of your environment.

Mervyn Peake
Eternity bores me, I never wanted it.
Sylvia Plath
Summer romances end for all kinds of reasons. But when all is said and done, they have one thing in common: They are shooting stars-a spectacular moment of light in the heavens, a fleeting glimpse of eternity. And in a flash, they’re gone.
Nicholas Sparks
There are no ultimate ends. Only games and more games. The winner this round is the loser the next round. Only the game is eternal. And the game is always the same, if you never change the rules.
Gerard Jones
Many times man lives and dies
Betweeen his two eternities,
That of race and that of soul,
And ancient Ireland knew it all.
Whether man die in his bed
Or the rifle knocks him dead
William Butler Yeats
I think cosmopolitan spirituality is the best, where we go beyond “My teacher is better than yours” or “My meditation form is better than yours.” It’s not Ford versus Chevy. But it’s rather the transition of our limited awareness into eternity.
Frederick Lenz
It’s ironic that in our culture everyone’s biggest complaint is about not having enough time; yet nothing terrifies us more than the thought of eternity.
Dennis Miller
Mythology helps you to identify the mysteries of the energies pouring through you. Therein lies your eternity.

In the world today, only a philosophy of eternity could justify non-violence.
Albert Camus

Every action of our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Life is the fire that burns and the sun that gives light. Life is the wind and the rain and the thunder in the sky. Life is matter and is earth, what is and what is not, and what beyond is in Eternity.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
There are few treasures of more lasting worth than the experiences of a way of life that is in itself wholly satisfying. Such, after all, are the only possessions of which no fate, no cosmic catastrophe can deprive us; nothing can alter the fact if for one moment in eternity we have really lived.
Eric Shipton
Heat cannot be separated from fire, or beauty from The Eternal.
Dante Alighieri
I don’t believe in hell. The idea that a supreme being would make hell is ridiculous. An eternity of pain that results in no learning, reformation or rebirth is a nauseating idea. It’s one of the reasons I left Christianity. I simply could not accept that version of God.
Anne Rice
A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of Saint Thomas Aquinas, an unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal and natural law.
Martin Luther
Life should be continually brighter. We are continually seeking our own innocence. We want to recapture it for eternity. It’s in there, but we lose touch with it.
Frederick Lenz
… the man in the violent situation reveals those qualities least dispensable in his personality, those qualities which are all he will have to take into eternity with him.

A Catholic is raised with the idea that he will die any minute now and if he doesn’t live his life in a certain way, this death is an introduction to an eternity of pain.
Don DeLillo
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
John Milton
You’re going to merge your mind with the mind of eternity that goes on forever; that is not easy. It’s very intense. I mean sitting on Mount St. Helens when it went off would have been small talk.
Frederick Lenz
Love Christ, and then the eternity in the heart will not be a great aching void, but will be filled with the everlasting life which Christ gives and is.
Alexander MacLaren
If you balance in the Present, you are living in Eternity

Francis Bacon
Eternity forbids thee to forget.

Eternity is said not to be an extension of time but an absence of time.

Spencer W. Kimball
To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wildflower.

Fyodor Dostoevsky
Even as a small child, I understood that woman had secrets, and that some of these were only to be told to daughters. In this way we were bound together for eternity.
Alice Hoffman
Architecture aims at Eternity.
Christopher Wren
Who lives longer? The man who takes heroin for two years and dies, or a man who lives on roast beef, water and potatoes ’till 95? One passes his 24 months in eternity. All the years of the beefeater are lived only in time.

We are looked upon by God as though we were in eternity; God dwells in eternity, and does not view things as we do.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
A day, an hour, of virtuous liberty Is worth a whole eternity in bondage.
Joseph Addison

The most important is to prepare you for eternity.
Rick Warren
What are you going to do when you get to eternity, if you can’t stick in an hour with God down here?

Manny Farber
The morrow of this day will be eternity; then Jesus will return you a hundred fold the lovely, rightful joys that you are sacrificing for him.
Therese of Lisieux
The aphorism, the apothegm, in which I am the first among the Germans to be a master, are the forms of “eternity”; it is my ambition to say in ten sentences what everyone else says in a book — what everyone else does not say in a book.
Friedrich Nietzsche
But eternity is not temporality at a standstill. What is oppressive about the concept of the eternal is the justification, incomprehensible to us, that time must undergo in eternity and the logical conclusion of that, the justification of ourselves as we are.
Franz Kafka
Pressed against her I can hear eternity — hollow, lonely spaces and currents that churn ceaselessly, and the fallen snow welcomes the falling snow with a whispered “Hush”.
Craig Thompson
Sun’s up, uh huh, looks okay –
the world survives into another day,
and I’m thinking about eternity.
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me.
Bruce Cockburn
Be grateful. By slaying you now, I spare you an eternity of torment.
If I’m wrong about God then I wasted my life. If you’re wrong about God then you wasted your eternity.
Every action of your life touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
The body,-that is dust; the soul,-it is a bud of eternity.
Nathaniel Culverwell
Listen closely… the eternal hush of silence goes on and on throughout all this, and has been going on, and will go on and on. This is because the world is nothing but a dream and is just thought of and the everlasting eternity pays no attention to it.
Jack Kerouac
I wish to die knowing that I took a fleeting instant of eternity and fashioned from it a lifetime.
Robert Breault
Nonsense, it was all nonsense: this whole damned outfit, with its committees, its conferences, its eternal talk, talk, talk, was a great con trick; it was a mechanism to earn a few hundred men and women incredible sums of money.
Doris Lessing
People need to know there is life after salvation! Salvation is not only about eternity. Salvation is the open door to an abundant earthly life in which we enjoy the love and direction of an active God!
Beth Moore
There is only eternity. That’s our real body. The stars are our blanket. Time doesn’t even exist, except in our own minds.
Frederick Lenz
The impulse of humanity toward social progress is like the movement in the currents of a great water system, from myriad sources and under myriad circumstances and conditions, beating onward, ever onward toward its eternity, the Ocean.
Anna Julia Cooper
We are celebrating the feast of the Eternal Birth which God the Father has borne and never ceases to bear in all eternity… But if it takes not place in me, what avails it? Everything lies in this, that it should take place in me.
Meister Eckhart
Time is a part of eternity, and of the same piece with it.

Dante Alighieri
Each girl is special-one of a kind-a child of God, and each must be taught to live his commandments in order to inherit his eternal blessings.
Martha H. Tingey
A lot of the strength of an RPG world lies in its foundation: its systems, lore, and when appropriate, its magic systems. While there are elements tied to ‘Project: Eternity’ that at first glance seem to be classic fantasy, that’s intentional – we do want to recreate some elements of a High Fantasy experience.
Chris Avellone
Eternity is now. Right now, right here, you’re an infinite being. Once you get past the fear of death as an end, you merge with the infinite and feel the comfort and relief that this realization brings.

Navigating by the compass in a sea of clouds over Spain is all very well, it is very dashing, but – you want to remember that below the sea of clouds lies eternity.

Jorge Luis Borges
To live in the presence of great truths and eternal laws, to be led by permanent ideals – that is what keeps a man patient when the world ignores him, and calm and unspoiled when the world praises him.
Honore de Balzac
The final end of Eternity, and the beginning of Infinity
Isaac Asimov
What a joy to know where one is, and where one will stay, without being there. Nothing to do but stretch out comfortably on the rack, in the blissful knowledge you are nobody for all
eternity. A pity I should have to give tongue at the same time, it prevents it from bleeding in peace, licking the lips.
Samuel Beckett
The family is not just the basic unit of society; it is the basic unit of eternity.
M. Russell Ballard
age means nothing. If anything I feel that I’m still a child: eternity and childhood are my ages.

William Blake
Where,oh,where are the eternity-conscious believers? Where are the souls white-hot for God because they fear His holy name and presence and so live with eternity’s values in view?
Leonard Ravenhill
Time is to eternity as an image is to its exemplar, and those things which are temporal bear a resemblance to those things which are eternal.

Friedrich Nietzsche
I’ll ride my bike all the stinkin’ way to school for the rest of eternity if it means being with her. -Bryce

The present is an infinitesimal between two infinites. ‘Tis a line (a thing without breadth or thickness) moving across the surface of Eternity. The present is no more, by the time you have said, ‘This is present.’
Henry Harland
How vast is eternity! – It will swallow up all the human race; it will collect all the intelligent universe; it will open scenes and prospects wide enough, great enough, and various enough to fix the attention, and absorb the minds of all intelligent beings forever.
Nathanael Emmons
Buying, possessing, accumulating–this is not worldliness. But doing this in the love of it, with no love of God paramount–doing it so that thoughts of eternity and God are an intrusion–doing it so that one’s spirit is secularized in the process; this is worldliness.
Robert Herrick
Like two rivers flow to the sea, someday we’ll reunite for all eternity.
Avril Lavigne
In my solitude I have pondered much on the incomprehensible subjects of space, eternity, life and death.

Holly Marie Combs
I didn’t have a Barbie doll, so I played with eternity.
Vanna Bonta
Many of the lessons we are to learn in mortality can only be received through the things we experience and sometimes suffer. And God expects and trusts us to face temporary mortal adversity with His help so we can learn what we need to learn and ultimately become what we are to become in eternity.
David A. Bednar
The Times are the masquerade of the eternities; trivial to the dull, tokens of noble and majestic agents to the wise; the receptacle in which the Past leaves its history; the quarry out of which the genius of today is building up the Future.

As for those that carried out these attacks there are no adequate words of condemnation. Their barbarism will stand as their shame for all eternity.
Tony Blair
There is no word or action but has its echo in Eternity.

Frederick Lenz
Eternity bids thee to forget.
John Green
Man has wants deeper than can be supplied by wealth or nature or domestic affections. His great relations are to his God and to eternity.
Mark Hopkins
Christ came to give us a justifying righteousness, and He also came to make us holy — not chiefly for the purpose of evidencing here our possession of a justifying righteousness — but for the purpose of forming and fitting us for a blessed eternity.
Thomas Chalmers
Whatever the theologians might say about heaven being in a state of union with God, I knew it consisted of an infinite library; and eternity was simply what enabled one to read uninterruptedly for ever.
Dervla Murphy
It is the eternal, inescapable law that growth comes only from work and preparation, whether the growth be material, mental, or spiritual. Work has no substitute.
J. Reuben Clark
The idea of eternity lives in all of us. We thirst to live in a belief which raises our small personality to a higher coherence – a coherence which is human and yet superhuman, absolute and yet steadily growing and developing, ideal and yet real.
Christian Lous Lange
Architecture has its political Use; publick Buildings being the Ornament of a Country; it establishes a Nation, draws People and Commerce; makes the People love their native Country, which Passion is the Original of all great Actions in a Common-wealth…. Architecture aims at Eternity.
Christopher Wren
Nobody, not even the old, not even the despairing, wished to come to an end in time or in eternity.
Ellen Glasgow
It is not to be wondered that men have worshiped the ocean, for in his depths they have seen mirrored the image of Eternity of Infinity.

Elbert Hubbard
Our mindset is not such that we will remain in power till eternity.
Amit Shah

Walter Lippmann
If you can trust God to save you for eternity, you can trust him to lead you for a lifetime.

The world does not move through time as if it were a straight line, proceeding from the past to the future. Instead time moves through and within us, in endless spirals. Eternity does not mean infinite time, but simply timelessness.
Elif Safak
A human life is a schooling for eternity.
Gottfried Keller

Tina St. John
We cross infinity with every step; we meet eternity in every second.
Rabindranath Tagore
The definition of eternity is two people and a ham.
Dorothy Parker
The knowledge of Christ is profound and large. All other sciences are but shadows; this is a boundless, bottomless ocean. Though something of Christ be unfolded in one age, and something in another, yet eternity itself cannot full unfold him.
John Flavel
For all their raving, ranting, and name-calling, these atheists will stand before God one day-and they will exist for eternity, though sadly they will be separated from God unless they repent and receive the free gift of salvation.
Ken Ham
The future and eternity are two entirely different things.
Douglas Coupland
In a world gone astray from God there is no peace, but it also lacks charity, which is true and perfect love… Nothing is more beautiful than love. Indeed, faith and hope will end when we die, whereas love, that is, charity, will last for eternity.
Pier Giorgio Frassati
And Nietzche, with his theory of eternal recurrence. He said that the life we lived we’re going to live over again the exact same way for eternity. Great. That means I’ll have to sit through the Ice Capades again.
Woody Allen
Place your mind before the mirror of eternity! Place your soul in the brilliance of glory! And transform your entire being into the image of the Godhead Itself through contemplation.

Richard Preston
Each individual is more or less dimly aware of his significance, is aware that he’s something innately superior, something eternal–and lives, is obligated to live, in the moment and for the moment.

D. A. Carson
Nothing is there to come, and nothing past,
But an eternal Now does always last.

Amy Tan
Sunday doesn’t just prepare us for the week ahead – it prepares us for eternity.
Mark Hart
Meditate on the horrors of Hell, which will last for eternity because of one easily-committed mortal sin. Try hard to be among the few who are chosen. Think of the eternal flames of Hell, and how few there are that are saved.
Benedict Joseph Labre
A circle is the reflection of eternity. It has no beginning and it has no end – and if you put several circles over each other, then you get a spiral.
Maynard James Keenan
I realized then that even though I was a tiny speck in an infinite cosmos, a blip on the timeline of eternity, I was not without purpose. And as long as I had a part in the music of the spheres, even if it was only a single grace note, I was not worthless. Nor was I alone.
R. J. Anderson
In this world of illusion, where at the end of the examination, we find everything to be of little importance, of little worth, if there is a sign of reality, of something one can depend upon, and in which one can recognize a sign of eternity, it is in the constancy of friendship.
Hazrat Inayat Khan
Our journey had advanced; Our feet were almost come To that odd fork in Being’s road, Eternity by term.
Emily Dickinson
Bright shadows of true rest! some shoots of bliss;
Heaven once a week;
The next world’s gladness prepossest in this;
A day to seek;
Eternity in time; the steps by which
We climb above all ages: lamps that light
Man through his heap of dark days; and the rich
And full redemption of the whole week’s flight.
Henry Vaughan

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,

I remember the days of my youth when everything was new and bright; when the mind was always questing, searching, absorbing; when the pain of love was so acute it could suffocate, and the days when joy was delirious.
Jennifer Worth
The ultimate fulfillment of God’s mercy in Jesus is not something that is supplied in time to correct a default in the system, but is something that is planned from all of eternity.

J. G. Holland
In the white light of eternity, there is only eternity.
Frederick Lenz
The world is a grain of sand on the beach of Eternity. Eternity is a grain of sand on the beach of Infinity. The ocean of Nirvana connects both Eternity and Infinity without connecting them. Know this and you will be free.
Frederick Lenz
Some say it is best not to go near the center of time. Life is a vessel of sadness, but is noble to live life and without time there is no life. Others disagree. They would rather have an eternity of contentment, even if that eternity were fixed and frozen, like a butterfly mounted in a case.
Alan Lightman
Jesus clearly taught that the majority of humanity will spend eternity in hell, and only a few will find the exclusive way to salvation.

George Santayana
The English are not a very spiritual people, so they invented cricket to give them some idea of eternity.

Frederick Lenz
Even the one moment that you thought was your eternity fades out and is forgotten and dies.

There wasn’t a single day in which the world was created. It’s created anew at every moment. The structures of eternity are completely fluid but they are bound together by the mind forming a nexus point so reality comes into being.
Frederick Lenz
In the context of eternity, time doesn’t matter.
Wayne Dyer
Laughter is eternity if joy is real.
One drop of eternity is of greater weight than a vast ocean of finite things.
Karl Barth
In the name of Jesus Christ, who was never in a hurry, we pray, O God, that You will slow us down, for we know that we live too fast. With all of eternity before us, make us take time to live—time to get acquainted with You, time to enjoy Your blessings, and time to know each other.

Mother Angelica
The hope of eternal life is not to be taken up upon slight grounds. It is a subject to be settled between God and your own soul; settled for eternity. A supposed hope, and nothing more, will prove your ruin.
Ellen G. White
If self-absorption, vague yearnings, and a nagging sense of incompleteness are sins, then surely I will burn for all eternity, and I will save you a seat.
Colson Whitehead
All eternity is in the moment.
Mary Oliver
Let the sky and God be our limit and Eternity our measurement.
Marcus Garvey
The thought of death leaves me in perfect peace, for I have a firm conviction that our spirit is a being of indestructible nature; it works on from eternity to eternity, it is like the sun, which though it seems to set to our mortal eyes, does not really set, but shines on perpetually.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Poets talk about “spots of time”, but it is really the fishermen who experience eternity compressed into a moment. No one can tell what a spot of time is until suddenly the whole world is a fish and the fish is gone.
Norman Maclean
The blessing of God enriches the soul for eternity while that given by the world enriches the body temporarily.
T. B. Joshua
Inactives-those whose feet are not placed on the path which leads to eternal life.
Jacob de Jager
It is very dangerous to go into eternity with possibilities which one has oneself prevented from becoming realities. A possibility is a hint from God. One must follow it.
Soren Kierkegaard
Who would complain if God allowed one hour of suffering in an entire lifetime of comfort? Why complain about a lifetime that includes suffering when that lifetime is a mere hour of eternity?
Philip Yancey
For clearly it is impossible to touch eternity with one hand and life with the other.
Yukio Mishima
Imagination places the future world for us either above or below or in reincarnation. We dream of travels throughout the universe: is not the universe within us? We do not know the depths of our spirit. The mysterious path leads within. In us, or nowhere, lies eternity with its worlds, the past and the future.
Some lives, conducted with grace, are beautiful arcs bridging this world to eternity.
Dean Koontz
Every great work of art has two faces, one toward its own time and one toward the future, toward eternity.

Frederick Lenz
We are children of the eternity: But this world is an out-birth out of the eternal; and its palpability taketh its original in the anger; the eternal nature is its root.
Jakob Bohme
To me – the choice of life is become less important; I hope hereafter to think only on the choice of eternity.
Samuel Johnson
There is no end and there is no beginning. There is only eternity. Eternity can be warm. eternity can be cold and ruthless.
Frederick Lenz
Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it; but while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains.
Henry David Thoreau
Every moment is utterly unique and will not be continued in eternity. This fact gives life its poignancy and should concentrate your attention on what you are experiencing now…that source of eternal energy is here, in you, now.
Joseph Campbell
Only a philosophy of eternity, in the world today, could justify non-violence.
Albert Camus
Time is given us to use in view of eternity.
Henry Allen Ironside
How well he fell asleepl Like some proud river, widening toward the sea; Calmly and grandly, silently and deep, Life joined eternity.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Power is God’s hand or arm, omniscience is God’s eye, mercy is God’s delight, eternity is God’s duration, but holiness is God’s beauty!
Stephen Charnock
And people who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives… and when the bubble has burst they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted.
Nate Saint
The image of Eternity–the throne Of the Invisible; even from out thy slime The monsters of the deep are made; each zone Obeys thee; thou goest forth, dread, fathomless, alone.
Lord Byron
What to my Saviour shall I giveWho freely hath done this for me?I’ll serve him here whilst I shall liveAnd Loue him to Eternity
Anne Bradstreet
Both light and dark are eternity. Human beings assign relative values to colors, but beyond the relative, there just is – what in Zen we call “suchness”.
Frederick Lenz
God is much more concerned about your character than your career, because you will take your character into eternity, but not your career.
Rick Warren
A man’s greatest care should be for that place where he lives longest; therefore eternity should be his scope.

Since eternity means happiness for you, what does it matter if some of these passing moments are unpleasant?

It would be very singular that all nature, all the planets, should obey eternal laws, and that there should be a little animal five feet high, who, in contempt of these laws, could act as he pleased, solely according to his caprice.
I judge all things only by the price they shall gain in eternity.
John Wesley
To be in time is to be asleep: to be awake is to be in eternity.
Awful as the consideration of eternity is, it is a source of great consolation to the righteous.
Charles Buck
Food is a great literary theme. Food in eternity, food and sex, food and lust. Food is a part of the whole of life. Food is not separate.
Jim Harrison
Eternity is a child playing, playing checkers; the kingdom belongs to a child.
The great cosmic illusion is a hierophany…. One is devoured by Time, not because one lives in Time, but because one believes in its reality, and therefore forgets or despises eternity.
Mircea Eliade
How does the light of a star set out and plunge into black eternity in its immortal course? The star dies, but the light never dies; such also is the cry of freedom.
Nikos Kazantzakis
When we arrive at eternity’s shore
Where death is just a memory and tears are no more
We’ll enter in as the wedding bells ring
Your bride will come together and we’ll sing, ‘You’re beautiful’
Phil Wickham
The first thing which I can record concerning myself is, that I was born. These are wonderful words. This life, to which neither time nor eternity can bring diminution – this everlasting living soul, began. My mind loses itself in these depths.
Groucho Marx
Zen opens a man’s eyes to the greatest mystery as it is daily and hourly performed; it enlarges the heart to embrace eternity of time and infinity of space in its every palpitation; it makes us live in the world as if walking in the garden of Eden
D.T. Suzuki
What I question about the afterlife is how many people just accept it and don’t question it, because I think living for an eternity would be much worse than dying.
Richard Herring
If you think you’re going to have an eternity in which you can talk to Mozart and Chopin and Schopenhauer on a cloud and learn stuff and you know really get to grips with knowledge and understanding and so you won’t bother now, I think it’s a terrible, a terrible mistake.
Stephen Fry
The aphorism in which I am the first master among Germans, are the forms of ‘eternity’; my ambition is to say in ten sentences what everyone else says in a book – what everyone else does not say in a book.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Our impulses toward instant gratification aren’t to be trusted. Hoarding our resources isn’t a worthy goal. We’re created with eternity in our hearts, and our lives have everlasting value.

Meditate and bath in the light of eternity. Nothing else is worthwhile.
Frederick Lenz
Eternity’s a terrible thought. I mean, where’s it all going to end?
Tom Stoppard
Mormonism truly was a part of my every decision since the day I was born. It taught me to serve others and to feel comfort about the next life. Who doesn’t want to live for eternity and have a ‘mansion in heaven’? It sounded like a rad deal to me when I was in my teenage years.
Dan Reynolds
Dedicated missionary service returns a dividend of eternal joy which extends throughout mortality and into eternity.
Thomas S. Monson

Were to Them now, Homesickness

Everything that is not eternal is worthless in eternity.
C. S. Lewis
Gentleman-rankers out on the spree, damned from here to Eternity.

Oscar Wilde
In the advance of civilization, it is new knowledge which paves the way, and the pavement is eternal.
Willis R. Whitney
The only humility that is really ours is not that which we try to show before God in prayer, but that which we carry with us, and carry out, in our ordinary conduct; the insignficances of daily life are the importances and the tests of eternity, because they prove what really is the spirit that possesses us.
Andrew Murray
Cricket – a game which the English, not being a spiritual people, have invented in order to give themselves some conception of eternity.
Benjamin Mancroft, 3rd Baron Mancroft
I am going to put myself to sleep now for a bit longer than usual. Call it Eternity
Jerzy Kosinski
Wonder blasts the soul – that is, the spiritual – and the skeleton, the body – the material. Wonder interprets life through the eyes of eternity while enjoying the moment, but never lets the moment’s revision exhaust the eternal.
Ravi Zacharias
Prayer is the God-given communication link between Heaven and Earth, time and eternity, the finite and the infinite.
Tony Evans
A painter’s hand has a thirst for thieving, it steals from heaven and makes a gift to the memories of men, it feigns eternity and it delights in this pretence almost as if it had created rules of its own, more durable and more profoundly true.
Dacia Maraini
Once we harness ourselves to love, it carries us to eternity.
Frederick Lenz
Only as an aesthetic product can the world be justified to all eternity.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Heaven? Floating about with everyone you ever knew for eternity? Me family does me ‘ed in after one day at xmas, I’d rather be mush.
Karl Pilkington
Eternity was in our lips and eyes,
Bliss in our brows’ bent; none our parts so poor
But was a race of heaven.
William Shakespeare
The flesh surrenders itself. Eternity takes back its own. Our bodies stirred these waters briefly, danced with a certain intoxication before the love of life and self, dealt with a few strange ideas, then submitted to the instruments of Time. What can we say of this? I occurred. I am not…yet, I occurred.
Frank Herbert
Various religions offer a variety of theories about life, death, and eternity. And yet, as different as all religions are, they share one common characteristic: they teach that the way to be reconciled to God is through works and rituals.
Robert Jeffress
They say my verse is sad: no wonder; Its narrow measure spans Tears of eternity, and sorrow, Not mine. but man’s.
A. E. Housman
Time holds the final claim check for everything we gain or attain in this lifetime. All of our possessions, along with the people we love, are only loaned to us for a very short time by eternity.
Frederick Lenz
You must have total and impeccable trust in eternity. Whether you like it or not, eternity’s in charge, so you might as well trust. You will feel better.
Frederick Lenz
None of us knows the wisdom of the Lord. We do not know in advance exactly how He would get us from where we are to where we need to be, but He does offer us broad outlines in our patriarchal blessings. We encounter many bumps, bends, and forks in the road of life that leads to the eternities.
James E. Faust
As o’er the stormy sea of human Life We sail, until our anchor’d spirits rest In the far haven of Eternity.
Robert Montgomery
When you meditate you are accessing eternity. You are plugging yourself into that source which is all light and all beauty and all perfection.
Frederick Lenz
The world today speaks a great deal about love, and it is sought by many. But the pure love of Christ differs greatly from what the world thinks of love. Charity never seeks selfish gratification. The pure love of Christ seeks only the eternal growth and joy of others.
Ezra Taft Benson
Faith is not an easy virtue; but, in the broad world of a person’s total voyage through time to eternity, faith is not only a gracious companion, but an essential guide.
Theodore Hesburgh
I respect self-giving and I’ve tried to lead my life with that as the ideal. But real self-giving is when we take our being, that which is most precious to us, and we throw it into eternity with a total sense of offering.
Frederick Lenz
Like those great sphinxes lounging through eternity in noble attitudes upon the desert sand, they gaze incuriously at nothing, calm and wise.
Charles Baudelaire
And as we meet needs on earth, we are proclaiming a gospel that transforms lives for eternity. The point is not simply to meet a temporary need or change a startling statistic; the point is to exalt the glory of Christ as we express the gospel of Christ through the radical generosity of our lives.
David Platt
Why should you worry whether God wants you to reach the heavenly home by way of the desert or by the fields, when by the one as well as by the other one arrives all the same at a Blessed Eternity? Keep far from you excessive preoccupation which arises from the trials which the good God wishes to visit upon you.
Pio of Pietrelcina
Eternity is the Absolute present.
D.T. Suzuki
Perhaps life is like an hour glass, with dear ones the sand that slips from the upper glass–the earth–into the second–eternity.
Margaret George
We come, in our trust, unto God, and the moment we so embrace Him, by committing our total being and eternity to Him, we find every thing is transformed. There is life in us from God; a kind of Christ-consciousness is opened in us, testifying with the apostle,–Christ liveth in me.
Horace Bushnell
If a certain country conducts uranium-related activities in a certain plant, the bombing of that plant is forbidden. If such a disaster occurs, America would not be able to show its face for all eternity.
Gholam Reza Aghazadeh
There is a still point in eternity. There is a still point where all things intersect. There is a still point beyond life, time, and death. Your experience of the still point is enlightenment.
Frederick Lenz
Fight for us, O God, that we not drift numb and blind and foolish into vain and empty excitements. Life is too short, too precious, too painful to waste on worldly bubbles that burst. Heaven is too great, hell is too horrible, eternity is too long that we should putter around on the porch of eternity.
John Piper
‎This I know… That often when I sang, and drummed, and danced, I found my eternity.
Rabindranath Tagore

Frederick Lenz
I had spent my time counterfeiting eternity.
Jean-Paul Sartre
History has an author who fills time and eternity with His purpose.
George W. Bush
Women joked amongst themselves: ‘Why do you think a bride cries on her wedding day? It’s for the love that this marriage is putting an end to for all eternity. Men may think a woman has no past- “you were born and then I married you”- but men are fools.
Nadeem Aslam
I suddenly understood that photography can fix eternity in a moment. It is the only photo that influenced me. There is such intensity in this image, such spontaneity, such joie de vivre, such miraculousness, that even today it still bowls me over.
Henri Cartier-Bresson
That day which you fear as being the end of all things is the birthday of your eternity.
Seneca the Younger
You don’t choose because if you choose you might make the wrong choice, based upon ego or illusion. Instead, you let eternity make all the choices for you.
Frederick Lenz
We could use up two Eternities in learning all that is to be learned about our own world and the thousands of nations that have arisen and flourished and vanished from it. Mathematics alone would occupy me eight million years.
Mark Twain
Righteous women have changed the course of history and will continue to do so, and their influence will spread and grow exponentially throughout the eternities.
Julie B. Beck
Immortality–twin sister of Eternity.
J. G. Holland
One may say the eternal mystery of the world is its comprehensibility.
Albert Einstein
This is the one and only firmament; therefore it is the absolute world. There is no other world. The circle is complete. I am living in Eternity. The ways of this world are the ways of Heaven.
Allen Ginsberg
The truth is that there is only one terminal dignity – love. And the story of a love is not important – what is important is that one is capable of love. It is perhaps the only glimpse we are permitted of eternity.
Helen Hayes
In that instant when I had seen… the Star Maker, I had glimpsed, in the very eye of that splendor, strange vistas of being; as though in the depths of the hypercosmical past and the hypercosmical future also, yet coexistent in eternity, lay cosmos beyond cosmos.
Olaf Stapledon
I am as wrapped up in her as a vine that clings to a tree seeking for sustenance. She’s tied me to her for eternity. She’s my home. She’s my reason for being. To win and hold her heart is my only purpose.
Colleen Houck
The worship of Christ is our joy and privilege today. And tomorrow, and next Sunday, and for all eternity.
Kevin DeYoung
Gods are but greater demons, the Cishaurim said, hungers across the surface of eternity, wanting only to taste the clarity of our souls. Can you not see this?
R. Scott Bakker
God exists in eternity. The only point where eternity meets time is in the present. The present is the only time there is.
Marianne Williamson
Our citizenship is in eternity; history is our temporary residence.
Erwin McManus
Very few things happen at the right time, and the rest do not happen at all. The conscientious historian will correct these defects.
The world of imagination is the world of eternity. It is the divine bosom into which we shall all go after death of the vegetative body.
William Blake
Dust in an urn long since, dispersed and dead
Is great Apollo; and the happier he
Edna St. Vincent Millay
We’re going to worship in eternity. So what does God want me to do while we’re here on earth? Practice. Practice worshipping.
Rick Warren
When God writes our names in the ‘Lamb’s Book of Life’ He doesn’t do it with an eraser handy. He does it for eternity.
R. C. Sproul
Some people become tired at the end of ten minutes or half an hour of prayer. What will they do when they have to spend Eternity in the presence of God? We must begin the habit here and become used to being with God.
Sadhu Sundar Singh
We look backward too much and we look forward too much; thus we miss the only eternity of which we can be absolutely sure – the eternal present, for it is always now.
M. William Phelps
Life is uncertain. Eternity is not. Unforgiveness cannot be allowed to last another day. Are you holding a grudge? You will never be more like God than when you forgive. Let it go. Kill the root of bitterness. Let the hurt go and set yourself free.
Craig Groeschel
We pass through hundreds, thousands, perhaps millions of existences. In each lifetime, we’re exploring another part of our own self, which is eternity.
Frederick Lenz
The pursuit of eternity is no longer the prerogative of the gods – it is the business of us all, here and now.
Bob Brown
If one understands eternity as timelessness, and not as an unending timespan, then whoever lives in the present lives for all time.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
Consider as sin any minute of life spent on something other than saving souls for eternity from this world doomed to destruction.
Richard Wurmbrand
Some thoughts always find us young, and keep us so. Such a thought is the love of the universal and eternal beauty.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Infidels: Repent of Mohammedanism or burn in hell forever, throughout eternity.
J. B. Stoner
There is something more awful in happiness than in sorrow–the latter being earthly and finite, the former composed of the substance and texture of eternity, so that spirits still embodied may well tremble at it.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Heaven is real and hell is real, and eternity is but a breath away.
Billy Graham
There is a world above, Where parting is unknown; A whole eternity of love, Form’d for the good alone; And faith beholds the dying here Translated to that happier sphere.
James Montgomery
It is long since I could have adventured on eternity, through God’s mercy and Christ’s merits; but death remained somewhat terrible, and that now is taken away; and now death is no more to me, but to cast myself into my husband’s arms, and to lie down with Him.
Donald Cargill
I am proud to be a Christian. I believe not only as a Christian, but as a scientist as well. A wireless device can deliver a message through the wilderness. In prayer the human spirit can send invisible waves to eternity, waves that achieve their goal in front of God.
Guglielmo Marconi
Childbirth takes place at the intersection of time; in all cultures it links past, present and future. In traditional cultures birth unites the world of ‘now’ with the world of the ancestors, and is part of the great tree of life extending in time and eternity.
Sheila Kitzinger
Eternal life is personal existence in continuity with the present life, but transfigured.
Georgia Harkness
