A Quote by Richard L. Evans on drugs, god, labor, pleasure, sleep, wonder, and work

Work is the best wonder drug ever devised by God. Work is as necessary to man as eating and sleeping. Pleasure derived from labor is the sweetest of all pleasures.

A Quote by Richard L. Evans on men, mistakes, perspective, pessimism, and seriousness

Too much pessimism has led too many men into making serious mistakes. And perhaps part of our pessimism comes because we are too close to ourselves to see in proper perspective.

A Quote by Richard L. Evans on accidents, people, photography, and reflection

Literally, no man ever sees himself as others see him. No photograph or reflection ever gives us the same slant on ourselves that others see. It has often been proved on the witness stand that no two people ever see the same accident precisely the same way. We see through different eyes and from different angles. But if we could see things as other people see them, we could come closer to knowing why they do what they do and why they say what they say.

Be able to disagree, without being disagreeable. We must not let the things we can't do keep us from doing the things we can do.

A Quote by Richard L. Evans on love, responsibility, sacrifice, and sincerity

Sincere love is something that sacrifices-not something that indulges itself. Sincere love is responsible. It would never knowingly hurt, but would heal.

A Quote by Richard L. Evans on compromise, direction, feeling, forgiveness, giving, humility, humor, marriage, needs, principles, repentance, respect, sense of humor, sharing, and understanding

Marriage requires the giving and keeping of confidences, the sharing of thoughts and feelings, respect and understanding always, marriage requires humility - the humility to repent, the humility to forgive. Marriage requires flexibility (to give and take) and firmness: not to compromise principles. And a wise and moderate sense of humor. Both need to be pulling together in the same direction.
