appreciation

A Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley on appreciation, arrogance, concern, and evil

Where there is appreciation, there is courtesy, there is concern for the rights and property of others. Without appreciation, there is arrogance and evil.

Gordon B. Hinckley (1910 -)

A Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley on absence, appreciation, beauty, concern, egotism, gratitude, ignorance, knowledge, mind, pleasure, selfishness, and ugliness

Absence of gratitude is the mark of the narrow, uneducated mind. It bespeaks a lack of knowledge and the ignorance of self-sufficiency. It expresses itself in ugly egotism and frequently in wanton mischief. We have seen our beaches, our parks, our forests littered with ugly refuse by those who evidently have no appreciation for their beauty. I have driven through thousands of acres of blackened land scourged by a fire evidently set by a careless smoker whose only concern had been the selfish pleasure gained from a cigarette.

A Quote by Godfrey H. Hardy on appreciation, doubt, emotion, facts, justice, mathematics, music, people, popularity, and stupidity

The fact is that there are few more "popular" subjects than mathematics. Most people have some appreciation of mathematics, just as most people can enjoy a pleasant tune; and there are probably more people really interested in mathematics than in music. Appearances may suggest the contrary, but there are easy explanations. Music can be used to stimulate mass emotion, while mathematics cannot; and musical incapacity is recognized (no doubt rightly) as mildly discreditable, whereas most people are so frightened of the name of mathematics that they are ready, quite unaffectedly, to exaggerate their own mathematical stupidity.

A Quote by Godfrey H. Hardy on appreciation, criticism, men, and work

There is no scorn more profound, or on the whole more justifiable, than that of the men who make for the men who explain. Exposition, criticism, appreciation, is work for second-rate minds.

A Quote by George Eliot on appreciation, careers, purpose, and starting

He was at a starting point which makes many a man's career a fine subject for betting, if there were any gentlemen given to that amusement who could appreciate the complicated probabilities of an arduous purpose. . . .

A Quote by Fred Robert Tiffany, D.D. on appreciation, honor, liberty, people, sacrifice, and suffering

People generally do not appreciate what they do not suffer for. A thing is held to be cheap if it did not cost dearly. Honor is lightly worn if it was easily attained. Inherited liberty is too often carelessly used until it is repossessed through sacrifices.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on appreciation, blessings, choice, effort, good, hope, and spirit

Someone has said it is better to appreciate the things you don't own than to own things you don't appreciate. I hope we will have with us a spirit of appreciation for all of the good things we enjoy, all the blessings that we have, many of which have come so easy to us, with very little effort on our part, and yet they are very real and very choice and are truly rich blessings.
