„Love consists in desiring to give what is our own to another and feeling his delight as our own“

„Kindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return. It is the joy of our life to do them. When we do good things from this inner desire, there is kindness in everything we think, say, want, and do.“

„The sky is an enormous man.“

„The nature of heaven is to provide a place there for all who lead good lives, no matter what their religion may be.“

„Man, before he is being regenerated, does not even know that any internal man exists, much
less is he acquainted with its nature and quality.“

„Such as the love is, such is the wisdom, consequently such is the man (n. 368)
(Divine Love and Wisdom, 1763)“

„The inner self is as distinct from the outer self as heaven is from earth.“ Secrets of Heaven (Swedenborg, Emanuel, Works.)

„We do need to realize, though, that it is the quality of our love that determines the quality of this life.“ Heaven and Hell
