Great Divorce Quotes

What attracts me to a book like this are the many quotable statements. They make me think long after I've read them. I have several but will only post one in hopes that others may have picked up on some favorite quotes during their reading.

This quote is found in the preface. I casually read it months ago when reading this book was just a thought.

"If we insist on keeping Hell (or even earth) we shall not see Heaven: if we accept Heaven we shall not be able to retain even the smallest and most intimate souvenirs of Hell."

I would LOVE to hear what's sticking with your during your reading journey!


  1. "In the main I loved you for my own sake: because I needed you....I am in Love Himself, not lonely....We shall have no need for one another now: we can begin to love truly."

  2. "The choice of every lost soul can be expressed in the words 'Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven.' There is always something they insist on keeping even at the price of misery. There is always something they prefer to joy."
