Quotation by William Blake

Men are admitted into Heaven not because they have curbed & governed their passions or have no passions, but because they have cultivated their understandings. The treasures of Heaven are not negations of passion, but realities of intellect, from which all the passions emanate uncurbed in their eternal glory. The fool shall not enter into Heaven let him be ever so holy.
William Blake (1757–1827), British poet, painter, engraver. repr. In Complete Writings, ed. Geoffrey Keynes (1957). A Vision of the Last Judgement (1810).
