Heaven & Hell

 “Every one who has ever built anywhere a “new heaven” first found the power thereto in his own hell.” – Nietzsche, The Genealogy of Morals.

“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.” – Siddhartha Gautama.

***

‎”He who desires but acts not, breeds pestilence.”

“The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.”

“The pride of the peacock is the glory of God. The lust of the goat is the bounty of God. The wrath of the lion is the wisdom of God. The nakedness of woman is the work of God.”

William Blake, The Proverbs of Hell.

It all fits.
