A Quote by Edmund Burke on achievement and time

When a great man has some one object in view to be achieved in a given time, it may be absolutely necessary for him to walk out of all the common roads.

Edmund Burke (1729 - 1797)

A Quote by Edgar A. Collard on achievement, art, contentment, happiness, humility, lies, life, and satisfaction

The art of contentment is the recognition that the most satisfying and the most dependably refreshing experiences of life lie not in great things but in little. The rarity of happiness among those who achieved much is evidence that achievement is not in itself the assurance of a happy life. The great, like the humble, may have to find their satisfaction in the same plain things.

A Quote by E. Jean Carroll on achievement, dreams, lies, and listening

To achieve the marvelous, you must do the unthinkable. . . the answer will hit, like a big psychic orgasm, if you listen to your dreams. They never lie.

A Quote by Dr. Theodor Reik on achievement, happiness, love, secrets, and words

There are only two roads that lead to something like human happiness. They are marked by the words . . . love and achievement. . . . Inorder to be happy oneself it is necessary to make at least one other person happy. . . . The secret of human happiness is not inself-seeking but in self-forgetting.

A Quote by Dr. Louis L. Mann on accidents, achievement, birth, government, hope, idealism, vision, and worth

Americanism is not an accident of birth, but an achievement in terms of worth. Government does not create Americanism, but Americanism creates Government. Americanism is not a race, but a vision, a hope and an ideal.

A Quote by Dr. Harvey N. Davis on achievement, belief, dictatorship, history, life, mankind, thinking, weakness, and world

In the long run I firmly believe only one answer can emerge. Always before, in world history, the frailty and weakness which the dictator has postulated in the masses of mankind has finally been uncovered in himself by the inexorable march of events, and the world as a whole has somehow managed to achieve, over the years, continually higher and nobler modes of thinking and of living.

A Quote by Dr. Fay B. Nash on achievement, adulthood, challenge, conquest, creativity, happiness, health, individuality, joy, leisure, people, skill, success, and work

It takes a highly intellectual individual to enjoy leisure. . . . Most of us had better count on working. What a man really wants is creative challenge with sufficient skills to bring him within the reach of success so that he may have the expanding joy of achievement. . . . Few people overwork; plenty overeat, overworry, overdrink. . . . Few realize real joy and happiness of conquest. The basis of mental health for the average adult is more work, provided the work is not mere drudgery.

A Quote by Dr. Edmund Ezra Day on achievement, certainty, commitment, democracy, falsehood, fear, freedom, honesty, hope, injustice, justice, leadership, life, progress, tranquility, truth, violence, and world

There are certain fundamental requisites for wise and resolute democratic leadership. It must build on hope, not on fear; on honesty, not on falsehood; on justice, not on injustice; on public tranquility, not on violence; on freedom, not on enslavement. It must weave a social fabric in which the most important strands are a devotion to truth and a commitment to righteousness. These are essential ingredients of the American way of life. They are the necessary conditions for the achievement of freedom and human progress the world over.

A Quote by Dr. Alexis Carrel on achievement, body, disease, effort, failure, force, melancholy, men, mind, prayer, serenity, spirit, strength, and therapy

Prayer is a force as real as terrestrial gravity. As a physician, I have seen men, after all other therapy had failed, lifted out of disease and melancholy by the serene effort of prayer. Only in prayer do we achieve that complete and harmonious assembly of body, mind and spirit which gives the frail human reed its unshakable strength.

Dr. Alexis Carrel (1873 - 1944)
