If people really want to go, and really try all their lives, I think they will get in; for I don't believe there are any locks on that door, or any guards at the gate. I always imagine it is as it is in the picture, where the shining ones stretch out their hands to welcome poor Christian as he comes up from the river.
~ Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
Small Cheer And Great Welcome Makes A Merry Feast.
~ William Shakespeare, "The Comedy of Errors", Act 3 scene 1
It Is Equally Wrong To Speed A Guest Who Does Not Want To Go, And To Keep One Back Who Is Eager. You Ought To Make Welcome The Present Guest, And Send Forth The One Who Wishes To Go.
~ Homer, The Odyssey
If Any Choose To Maintain, As Many Do, That Species Were Gradually Brought To Their Maturity From Humbler Forms... He Is Welcome To His Hypothesis, But I Have Nothing To Do With It.

Think To Yourself That Every Day Is Your Last The Hour To Which You Do Not Look Forward Will Come As A Welcome Surprise.
Quiet And Sincere Sympathy Is Often The Most Welcome And Efficient Consolation To The Afflicted. Said A Wise Man To One In Deep Sorrow, I Did Not Come To Comfort You; God Only Can Do That; But I Did Come To Say How Deeply And Tenderly I Feel For You In Your Affliction.
~ Tryon Edwards
We Must Dare To Think Unthinkable Thoughts. We Must Learn To Explore All The Options And Possibilities That Confront Us In A Complex And Rapidly Changing World. We Must Learn To Welcome And Not To Fear The Voices Of Dissent. We Must Dare To Think About Unthinkable Things Because When Things Become Unthinkable, Thinking Stops And Action Becomes Mindless.
~ James W. Fulbright, March 27, 1964
