acceptance

A Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh on acceptance, life, limits, relationships, and serenity

For relationships, too, must be like islands. One must accept them for what they are here and now, within their limits - islands surrounded and interrupted by the sea, continuously visited and abandoned by the tides. One must accept the serenity of the winged life, of ebb and flow, of intermittency.

Anne Lindbergh (1906 -)

A Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh on acceptance, existence, facts, freedom, imagination, learning, and life

Total freedom is never what one imagines and, in fact, hardly exists. It comes as a shock in life to learn that we usually only exchange one set of restrictions for another. The second set, however, is self-chosen, and therefore easier to accept.

A Quote by Ben Ames Williams on acceptance, business, choice, life, and meetings

Life is the acceptance of responsibilities or their evasion, it is a business of meeting obligations or avoiding them. To every man the choice is continually being offered, and by the manner of his choosing you may fairly measure him.

Ames Williams (1889 - ?)

A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on acceptance, civilization, inventions, people, and vices

SAUCE, n. The one infallible sign of civilization and enlightenment. A people with no sauces has one thousand vices; a people with one sauce has only nine hundred and ninety-nine. For every sauce invented and accepted a vice is renounced and forgiven.

Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914)

A Quote by Alistair Cooke on acceptance, character, home, people, and theater

To watch an American on a beach or crowding into a subway, or buying a theater ticket, or sitting at home with his radio on, tells you something about one aspect of the American character: the capacity to withstand a great deal of outside interference, so to speak; a willing acceptance of frenzy which though it's never self-conscious, amounts o a willingness to let other people have and assert their own lively, and even offensive, character. They are a tough race in this.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on acceptance and universe

Once you can accept the universe as being something expanding into an infinite nothing which is something, wearing stripes with plaid is easy.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on acceptance, creation, life, mankind, men, and obligation

Not until the creation and maintenance of decent conditions of life for all men are recognized and accepted as a common obligation of all men . . . shall we . . . be able to speak of mankind as civilized.

A Quote by Albert Camus on acceptance, belief, death, force, freedom, god, and problems

There is but one freedom, to put oneself right with death. After that everything is possible. I cannot force you to believe in God. Believing in God amounts to coming to terms with death. When you have accepted death, the problem of God will be solved - and not the reverse.

Albert Camus (1913 - 1960)
