In an interview in 2005, Gilbert explained the title of his book Refusing Heaven:
I think of heaven and think that I wouldn’t want to just float around in happiness, in a place without imperfection, where you don’t fall in love. I picture everything there being one colour. I can’t imagine anything better than being here on earth.
And someone replied beautifully to this:
If the heart is capable of love on earth, it still will fall in love in heaven.
Either he dares not to take spiritual adventure
or earth is the only place he knows.
