achievement

A Quote by Victor L. Brown on achievement, laws, life, needs, power, principles, and purpose

The law of the fast benefits both those who fast and those who stand in need. . . . In addition to providing the means for taking care of the poor among us, fasting is a principle of power which helps us to individually achieve righteous purposes in our lives.

Victor L. Brown (1914 - 1995)

A Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin on achievement, children, compassion, hope, imagination, perception, and scientists

As great scientists have said and as all children know, it is above all by the imagination that we achieve perception, and compassion, and hope.

A Quote by unknown on achievement, clarity, emotion, and life

Winners dwell on and hold the self-image of that person they would most like to become. They get a vivid, clear, emotional, sensory picture of themselves as if they had already achieved their new role in life.

A Quote by unknown on achievement, appreciation, dreams, greatness, history, imagination, men, men and women, perseverance, sacrifice, women, and work

I think that you appreciate that there are extraordinary men and women, and extraordinary moments when history leaps forward on the backs of these individuals. That what can be imagined, can be achieved. That you must dare to dream, but that there is no substitute for perseverance and hard work, and team work, because no one gets there alone. And that while we commemorate the greatness of these events and the individuals who achieve them, we cannot forget the sacrifice of those who make these achievements and leaps possible.

A Quote by unknown on achievement, body, culture, cynicism, diversity, experience, future, justice, kindness, machines, men, mind, mountains, past, personality, personality, planning, poets, psychiatry, soul, and work

It has been written: To the cynic the body is no more than a tenement of clay. To the poet, a palace of the soul. To the physician, an all too ailing hulk. The psychiatrist sees it as a housing for the mind and personality. The geneticist sees it as a perpetuation of its own kind. The biologist sees it as an organism which can alter the future as a result of the experience of the past. The anthropologist sees it as an accumulation of culture. Others have viewed the body as essentially just a machine, a concept that sometimes appeals and sometimes appalls. The English satirist Samuel Butler dismissed his fellow men as but "a pair of pincers set over a bellows and a stew pan and the whole thing fixed upon stilts." But to the more reverent, the bodily mechanism is a masterpiece of precise planning-a delicate and complex apparatus whose various components work as a unit to achieve such diverse feats as scaling a mountain top, building a bridge or composing a symphony.

A reputation is the reward for what one achieved yesterday-but it has to be earned again today and tomorrow.

A Quote by unknown on achievement, god, happiness, health, learning, life, men, needs, poverty, power, praise, strength, and weakness

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey.... I asked for health, that I might do greater things I was given infirmity, that I might do better things... I asked for riches, that I might be happy. I was given poverty, that I might be wise... I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God.... I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life I was given life that I might enjoy all things.... I got nothing I asked for - but everything I hoped for. Almost despite myself my unspoken prayers were answered. I am, among men, most richly blessed!

A Quote by unknown on achievement, birds, character, clarity, conscience, friendship, good, habits, happiness, health, life, men, money, music, peace, philosophy, privacy, secrets, and songs

Money can't buy real friendship-friendship must be earned. Money can't buy a clear conscience-square dealing is the price tag. Money can't buy the glow of good health-right living is the secret. Money can't buy happiness-happiness is a mental condition and one may be as happy in a cottage as in a mansion. Money can't buy sunsets, songs of wild birds and the music of the wind in the trees-these are as free as the air we breath. Money can't buy inward peace-peace is the result of a constructive philosophy in life. Money can't buy a good character-good character is achieved through decent habits of private living and wholesome dealings in our open contacts with our fellow men.

A Quote by unknown on achievement, eternity, experience, greatness, heart, learning, life, love, paradox, power, relationships, sacrifice, soul, strength, and suffering

Love and relationships are truly one of the most paradoxical aspects of being human. For it is in love that we find the greatest of strengths and the deepest of sorrows. Love can seem to be so fleeting and unachievable yet it remains well within our reach if we only learn how to embrace it's power. To experience true love, we must be willing to open ourselves up and sacrifice part of our heart and part of our soul. We must be willing to give of ourselves freely, and we must be willing to suffer. It is only when we expose our inner selves to the white hot flame of rejection, that love can burn so brightly as to join to souls, melding the two into one, creating a bond that joins forever. It is from this bond that we draw strength eternal and power ever lasting. It is in this thing that we call love that we find the means to achieve greatness, both in ourselves and in our lives.
