achievement

A Quote by David Augsburger on achievement, errors, and forgiveness

Since nothing we intend is ever faultless, and nothing we attempt ever without error, and nothing we achieve without some measure of finitude and fallibility we call humanness, we are saved by forgiveness.

A Quote by Dave Barry on achievement, adaptability, america, company, day, design, electricity, inventions, simplicity, and time

Edison's greatest achievement came in 1879, when he invented the electric company. Edison's design was a brilliant adaptation of the simple electrical circuit: the electric company sends electricity through a wire to a customer, then immediately gets the electricity back through another wire, then (this is the brilliant part) sends it right back to the customer again. This means that an electric company can sell a customer the same batch of electricity thousands of times a day and never get caught...the last year any new electricity was generated in the United States was 1937; the electric companies have been merely re-selling it ever since, which is why they have so much free time to apply for rate increases.

A Quote by D. Lee Tobler on achievement, fatherhood, good, home, leadership, and motherhood

[Countering worldly wickedness] is achieved when the powers of righteousness are marshaled in the home under the worthy priesthood leadership of the father, equally yoked with a good and righteous mother.

A Quote by Curtis Judalet on achievement, losing, love, and obsession

Love is as much of an object as an obsession, everybody wants it, everybody seeks it, but few ever achieve it, those who do will cherish it, be lost in it, and among all, never . . . never forget it.

A Quote by Clifford Geertz on achievement, difficulty, life, mind, nature, sharing, tolerance, and world

To see ourselves as others see us can be eye-opening. To see others as sharing a nature with ourselves is the merest decency. But it is from the far more difficult achievement of seeing ourselves amongst others, as a local example of the forms human life has locally taken, a case among cases, a world among worlds, that the largeness of mind, without which objectivity is self-congratulation and tolerance a sham, comes.

A Quote by Claude M. Bristol on achievement, clarity, desires, direction, effort, goals, idealism, justice, mind, power, thought, and time

The person with a fixed goal, a clear picture of his desire, or an ideal always before him, causes it, through repetition, to be buried deeply in his subconscious mind and is thus enabled, thanks to its generative and sustaining power, to realize his goal in a minimum of time and with a minimum of physical effort. Just pursue the thought unceasingly. Step by step you will achieve realization, for all your faculties and powers become directed to that end.

A Quote by Claude Frédéric Bastiat on achievement, design, dignity, doubt, god, humanity, influence, justice, laws, liberty, mankind, peace, progress, responsibility, safety, stability, and worth

Law is justice. And it is under the law of justice - under the reign of right; under the influence of liberty, safety, stability, and responsibility - that every person will attain his real worth and the true dignity of his being. It is only under this law of justice that mankind will achieve - slowly, no doubt, but certainly - God's design for the orderly and peaceful progress of humanity.

Claude Bastiat (1801 - 1850)
