Heaven
 
But heaven hath a hand in these events;
To whose high will we bound our calm contents.
        Shakespeare.—King Richard II., Act V. Scene 2.

’Twas whisper’d in Heaven, ’twas mutter’d in Hell,
And echo caught faintly the sound as it fell;
On the confines of earth ’twas permitted to rest,
And the depths of the ocean its presence confess’d.
        Byron.—An Epigram on the Letter H.
  2
A heaven on earth I have won, by wooing thee.
        Shakespeare.—All’s Well that Ends Well, Act IV. Scene 2. (Bertram to Diana.) And see Milton, Paradise Lost, Book IV. Line 208.
  3
Heaven is above all yet; there sits a judge
That no king can corrupt.
        Shakespeare.—King Henry VIII., Act III. Scene 1. (Queen Katherine.)

There’s nothing true but Heaven.
        Thomas Moore.—World a fleeting Show.
