anticipation

A Quote by Sigmund Freud on anticipation, concern, happiness, investment, justice, and wisdom

Just as a cautious businessman avoids investing all his capital in one concern, so wisdom would probably admonish us also not to anticipate all our happiness from one quarter alone.

Sigmund Freud (1856 - 1939)

A Quote by Dr. Samuel Johnson on anticipation, change, happiness, life, wishes, and world

Such is the state of life, that none are happy but by the anticipation of change: the change itself is nothing; when we have made it, the next wish is to change again. The world is not yet exhausted; let me see something tomorrow which I never saw before.

A Quote by Pearl Mae Bailey on anticipation, cooking, facts, good, preparation, and spontaneity

The fact is that it takes more than ingredients and technique to cook a good meal. A good cook puts something of himself into the preparation - he cooks with enjoyment, anticipation, spontaneity, and he is willing to experiment.

A Quote by John Quincy Adams on age, anticipation, charity, design, gifts, greatness, history, knowledge, mankind, men, museums, perseverance, simplicity, and spirit

Of all the foundations of establishments for pious or charitable uses, which ever signalized the spirit of the age, or the comprehensive beneficence of the founder, none can be named more deserving of the approbation of mankind than this. Should it be faithfully carried into effect, with an earnestness and sagacity of application, and a steady perseverance of pursuit, proportioned to the means furnished by the will of the founder, and to the greatness and simplicity of his design as by himself declared, "the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men," it is no extravagance of anticipation to declare, that his name will be hereafter enrolled among the eminent benefactors of mankind. . . . Whoever increases his knowledge, multiplies the uses to which he is enabled to turn the gift of his Creator. This passage, in a slightly altered form, is inscribed on the exterior of the National Museum of American History, Washington, D.C.: "Of all the foundations of establishments for pious or charitable uses which ever signalized the spirit of the age or the comprehensive beneficence of the founder none can be named more deserving of the approbation of mankind than the Smithsonian Institution. Should it be faithfully carried into effect with an earnestness and sagacity of application. . . proportioned to the means furnished by the will of the founder and to the greatness and simplicity of his design as by himself declared, 'The increase and diffusion of knowledge among men,' his name will be hereafter enrolled among the eminent benefactors of mankind. . . whoever increases knowledge multiplies the uses to which he is able to turn the gift of his creator.

A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on anticipation, future, imagination, passion, reality, and secrets

What we can do and want to do is projected in our imagination, quite outside ourselves, and into the future. We are attracted to what is already ours in secret. Thus passionate anticipation transforms what is indeed possible into dreamt-for reality.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)
