A Quote by Joseph Pulitzer on appreciation and guidance

Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it and, above all, accurately so they will be guided by its light.

Joseph Pulitzer (1847 - 1911)

A Quote by James Irwin on appreciation, change, christmas, creation, earth, god, imagination, life, and love

The Earth reminded us of a Christmas tree ornament hanging in the blackness of space. As we got farther and farther away it diminished in size. Finally it shrank to the size of a marble, the most beautiful marble you can imagine. That beautiful, warm, living object looked so fragile, so delicate, that if you touched it with a finger it would crumble and fall apart. Seeing this has to change a man, has to make a man appreciate the creation of God and the love of God.

A Quote by J. Michael Straczinski on age, appreciation, death, destruction, greatness, pride, and youth

Greatness is never appreciated in youth, called pride in midlife, dismissed in old age, and reconsidered in death. Because we cannot tolerate greatness in our midst, we do all we can do destroy it.

J. Michael Straczinski

A Quote by J. B. Phillips on action, appreciation, body, christ, god, jesus, life, love, men, mind, personality, personality, power, problems, spirit, present, and worship

Following the way of Jesus Christ and doing all we can for His cause and for our fellow men expresses something of our worship in action. But how to give Him a present to express our love is a bit of a problem. How can you give God anything when He owns everything? But does He? How about that power to choose, that precious free will that He has given to every living personality and which He so greatly respects? That is the only present we can give - our selves, with all our powers of spirit, mind, and body, willingly, freely given because we love Him. That is the best and highest worship that you and I can offer, and I am sure that it is this above all that God most highly appreciates.

A Quote by Grenville Kleiser on appreciation, circumstances, day, deed, faults, forgiveness, friendship, generosity, sacrifice, sympathy, present, and time

There are many fine things which you mean to do some day, under what you think will be more favorable circumstances. But the only time that is surely yours is the present, hence this is the time to speak the word of appreciation and sympathy, to do the generous deed, to forgive the fault of a thoughtless friend, to sacrifice self a little more for others.

Grenville Kleiser (1868 - 1953)
