What is hell?

Hell

In many mythological, folklore and religious traditions, hell is a place of eternal suffering and punishment in an afterlife, often after resurrection. Religions with a linear divine history often depict hells as endless. Religions with a cyclic history often depict a hell as an intermediary period between incarnations. Typically these traditions locate hell under the Earth's external surface and often include entrances to Hell from the land of the living. Other afterlife destinations include Heaven, Purgatory, Paradise, and Limbo.

Famous quotes containing the word hell:

    O you singers solitary, singing by yourself, projecting me,
    O solitary me listening, never more shall I cease perpetuating you
    Never more shall I escape, never more the reverberations,
    Never more the cries of unsatisfied love be absent from me,
    Never again leave me to be the peaceful child I was before what
    there in the night,
    By the sea under the yellow and sagging moon,
    The messenger there aroused, the fire, the sweet hell within,
    The unknown want, the destiny of me.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    A playwright ... is ... the litmus paper of the arts. He’s got to be, because if he isn’t working on the same wave length as the audience, no one would know what in hell he was talking about. He is a kind of psychic journalist, even when he’s great.
    Arthur Miller (b. 1915)

    All hell shall stir for this.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
