A Quote by Robert Francis Kennedy on action, beginning, belief, discovery, earth, ignorance, injustice, men, misery, protestantism, thought, violence, women, work, and world

Some believe there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills -- against misery, against ignorance, or injustice and violence. Yet many of the world's great movements, of thought and action, have flowed from the work of a single man. A young monk began the Protestant reformation, a young general extended an empire from Macedonia to the borders of the earth, and a young woman reclaimed the territory of France. It was a young Italian explorer who discovered the New World, and 32 year old Thomas Jefferson who proclaimed that all men are created equal. 'Give me a place to stand,' said Archimedes, 'and I will move the world.' These men moved the world, and so can we all.

Robert F. Kennedy (1925 - 1968)

A Quote by Morihei Ueshiba on art, beginning, body, divinity, life, peace, spirit, work, and path

The Art of Peace begins with you. Work on yourself and your appointed task in the Art of Peace. Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment. Foster peace in your own life and then apply the Art to all that you encounter.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on beginning, desires, evil, habits, hatred, lies, pride, and strength

The beginning of pride and hatred lies in worldly desire, and the strength of your desire if from habit. When an evil tendency becomes confirmed by habit, rage is triggered when anyone restrains you.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on beginning, belief, and certainty

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I shall have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it, even if I may not have it at the beginning.

Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

A Quote by Lance Armstrong on beginning, belief, bliss, contentment, experience, friendship, good, happiness, justice, life, suffering, and time

Suffering, I was beginning to think, was essential to a good life, and as inextricable from such a life as bliss. It's a great enhancer. It might last a minute, or a month, but eventually it subsides, and when it does, something else takes its place, and maybe that thing is a greater space. For happiness. Each time I encountered suffering, I believe that I grew, and further defined my capacities--not just my physical ones, but my interior ones as well, for contentment, friendship, or any other human experience.

Truth will have no gods before it.- The belief in truth begins with the doubt of all truths in which one has previously believed.
