What's the difference between Eternity and Infinity?

If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear as it is, infinite...William Blake.

To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour...William Blake.

Thanks for your comments!

What's the difference between Eternity and Infinity?
Eternity means no beginning and no end

infinity means a beginning but no end
Reply:Infinity relates to any physical dimension whereas eternity relates only to the time dimension.
Reply:Eternity realtes to time

whereas infinity is a term that can be used for a large array of things
Reply:In my mind, eternity is only for describing the passage of time - sometimes distance, but only as it relates to the amount of time it would take to travel that distance. Infinity, however, relates to a number. As in, an infinite number/amount of things. So, eternity would have an infinite amount of years/hours/minutes/seconds, etc. But that's just my opinion.
Reply:1) Eternity is the forever preservation of the soul %26amp; spirit.

2) Infinity is the forever preservation of the material. Weather that be physical body, plant, or soil. It's always referring to something you can point at and say, "That is going to Last forever, in one form or another' {Energy is neither created nor destroyed, it just changes form -thermodynamics??-}

Reply:Eternity is no time. It is not endless time.

Infinity is no space. It is not endless space.

Both are a state of being without perception which is why both concepts are impossible for us to wrap our brains around. All we know is perception here.

Reply:There is no difference, they are both false perceptions. They stand in denial of the Alpha and the Omega.
Reply:Eternity is more than a lifetime (a timescale)

Infinity is a quantity, numeral. (Unlimited)
Reply:Infinity is a number, eternity is not...
