A Quote by General George Catlett Marshall on acceptance, civilization, and defeat

A Quote by George Macdonald on acceptance, belief, god, heart, jesus, justice, people, pride, thought, and work

Do you think that the work God gives us to do is never easy? Jesus says that His yoke is easy, His burden is light. People sometimes refuse to do God's work just because it is easy. This is sometimes because they cannot believe that easy work is His work; but there may be a very bad pride in it. . . . Some, again, accept it with half a heart and do it with half a hand. But however easy any work may be, it cannot be well done without taking thought about it. And such people, instead of taking thought about their work, generally take thought about the morrow - in which no work can be done, any more than in yesterday.

A Quote by George H. Allen on acceptance, defeat, feeling, and guilt

If you can accept defeat and open your pay envelope without feeling guilty, you're stealing.

A Quote by George G. Woodson on acceptance, action, concern, control, inferiority, nature, order, thinking, and worry

If you can control a man's thinking, you do not have to worry about his actions. When you determine what a man shall think you do not have to concern yourself about what he will do. If you make a man feel that he is inferior, you do not have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it himself . If you make a man think that he is justly an outcast, you do not have to order him to the back door. He will go without being told; and if there is no back door, his very nature will demand one.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on acceptance, laws, life, and nonviolence

When nonviolence is accepted as the law of life, it must pervade the whole being and not be applied to isolated acts.

A Quote by Frederic William Farrar on acceptance, animals, belief, birth, church, familiarity, history, jesus, life, time, and traditions

Canon Farrar accepts the traditional belief that the shelter within which Jesus was born was that of one of the numerous limestone caves which abound in the region, and which are still used by travelers as resting places. He says: "In Palestine it not infrequently happens that the entire khan, or at any rate the portion of it in which the animals are housed, is one of those innumerable caves which abound in the limestone rocks of its central hills. Such seems to have been in the case at the little town of Bethlehem-Ephratah, in the land of Judah. Justin Martyr, the Apologist, who, from his birth at Shechem, was familiar with Palestine, and who lived less than a century after the time of our Lord, places the scene of the nativity in a cave. This is, indeed, the ancient and constant tradition both of the Eastern and the Western Churches, and it is one of the few to which, though unrecorded in the Gospel history, we may attach a reasonable probability."

A Quote by Franklin D. Richards on ability, acceptance, circumstances, criticism, exercise, good, and patience

Sometimes we are misunderstood, even by those who are closest to us. Under such circumstances, patience will develop within us the capacity to accept criticism and censure, whether we feel such criticism is warranted or not. This ability to exercise forbearance under provocation means that we are following the Savior's teachings, to do good to those who despitefully use us and to turn the other cheek.

A Quote by Frank E. Fischer on acceptance, communication, leadership, and people

We must never forget that the most powerful communication isn't what you say, it's what you do. What counts, in the final analysis, is not what people are told but what they accept. It is this concept of the role of communication in industry that characterizes effective leadership.
