A Quote by Analee Skarin on anguish, confidence, confusion, emptiness, heart, hunger, mankind, men, mind, pain, soul, tears, and world

He who speaks from the lips chatters. He who speaks from an empty mind adds confusion to discord. He who speaks from a full mind feeds the minds of men. He who speaks from his heart wins the confidence of mankind. But he who speaks from his soul heals the heartbreaks of a world and feeds the hungry, starving souls of men. He can dry the tears of anguish and pain. He can bring light, for he will carry light.

A Quote by Akhnaton [Ikhnaton or Akhenaton] on ambition, anguish, joy, and mind

The ambitious will always be first in the crowd; he presseth forward, he looketh not behind him. More anguish is it to his mind to see one before him, than joy to leave thousands at a distance.

Akhnaton (c.1375 - c.1353 BC)

A Quote by Alfred Edward Housman on anguish, danger, death, good, guilt, love, shame, sharing, and soul

But if you ever come to a road where danger; Or guilt or anguish or shame's to share. Be good to the lad who loves you true, And the soul that was born to die for you; And whistle and I'll be there.

A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on anguish, fatherhood, freedom, grief, losing, love, memory, motherhood, presidency, pride, sacrifice, sons, war, weakness, and words

Dear Madam,-I have been shown in the files of the War Department a Statement of the Adjutant General of Massachusetts, that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours, to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of Freedom. Yours, very sincerely and respectfully, President Abraham Lincoln
