boldness

A Quote by Edgar Albert Guest on boldness, failure, faith, fear, goals, heart, soul, and timidity

THE THINGS THAT HAVEN'T BEEN DONE BEFORE The things that haven't been done before, Those are the things to try; Columbus dreamed of an unknown shore At the rim of the far-flung sky, And his heart was bold and his faith was strong As he ventured in dangers new, And he paid no heed to the jeering throng Or the fears of the doubting crew. The things that haven't been done before, Are the tasks worthwhile today; Are you one of the flock that follows, or Are you one that shall lead the way? Are you one of the timid souls that quail At the jeers of a doubting crew, Or dare you, whether you win or fail, Strike out for a goal that's new?

Edgar Albert Guest (1881 - 1959)

A Quote by Earl O. Shreve on agriculture, boldness, discovery, effort, future, government, labor, lies, miracles, optimism, progress, promises, science, technology, war, welfare, and world

Despite world unrest, the frontiers of the future lie invitingly before us. They stretch to fabulous horizons of scientific and technological discovery-all holding promise of contribution to the national welfare. But these frontiers of tomorrow call for bold enterprise-for optimism, for the united effort of industry, labor, agriculture and government. In the mounting miracles of science, in the rapid advances of technology, lie the foundations for almost countless new industries and for far swifter social progress. This promise of progress is daily taking more definite shape and clearer form, as it shakes free of the post-war mists.

A Quote by Charles Wesley on angels, boldness, christ, death, design, divinity, earth, emptiness, eternity, exploring, fatherhood, god, grace, heart, immortality, interest, jesus, life, love, mercy, mystery, nature, pain, and spirit

And can it be that I should gain an interest in the Savior's blood? Died He for me, who caused His pain-- for me, who Him to death pursued? Amazing love! how can it be that Thou, my God, shouldst die for me? 'Tis mystery all! Th' Immortal dies: Who can explore His strange design? In vain the first-born seraph tries to sound the depths of love divine. 'Tis mercy all! let earth adore, let angel minds inquire no more. He left His Father's throne above,-- so free, so infinite His grace-- emptied Himself of all but love, and bled for Adam's helpless race: 'Tis mercy all, immense and free; for, O my God, it found out me! Long my imprisoned spirit lay Fast bound in sin and nature's night; Thine eye diffused a quickening ray,-- I woke, the dungeon flamed with light; my chains fell off, my heart was free, I rose, went forth, and followed Thee. No condemnation now I dread; Jesus, and all in Him, is mine! Alive in Him, my living Head, and clothed in righteousness divine, Bold I approach the eternal throne, and claim the crown, thorugh Christ my own.

Charles Wesley (1707 - 1788)

A Quote by Charles Lamb on boldness and garden

A garden was the primitive prison, till man, with Promethean felicity and boldness, luckily sinned himself out of it.

A Quote by C. Smith Sumner on ability, automobiles, beauty, boldness, children, confusion, danger, environment, fatherhood, garden, god, indecision, life, pollution, and sharing

The Bee Story I want to share something with you. A few days ago, I was stopped at a large, busy intersection waiting for a long light. Not really looking at anything in particular, my eyes moved about until I noticed a honey bee on the street alongside the car. It was near a bold white line which was between my lane and the left turn lane. The bee was not flying in a lush garden among beautiful flowers and shrubs and trees, in the cool clean air with quietness and beauty all around it. Instead, it had lowered itself to walk on the hot pavement surrounded by noise, pollution, heat and great threats to its very life. It crawled onto the line and seemed to be pulled toward the other side. But then it resisted and wandered back. Back and forth it went, indecisive about whether it would cross over or not. The traffic was now moving in the left turn lane and presented a grave danger. Finally the little bee, perhaps confused, being in an environment to which it was not accustomed, and not using the abilities that God had given it, drifted over the line and headed directly into foreign territory. Two tires went by quickly without harming the bee although ruffling its wings a bit. It could see that it could stand up to any danger so it carried on. Then came a bus and, in a split second, its life was snuffed out. It perished on the wrong side of the line. This is a true story about one unfortunate bee. It has been acted out, set in different environments, in the lives of many of the children of our Heavenly Father.
