A Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes on circumstances, colors, contentment, life, thought, and time

A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanged; it is the skin of a living thought, and may vary greatly in color and content according to the circumstances and the time in which it is used.

Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809 - 1894)

A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on church, circumstances, creation, golf, rest, time, war, and worship

A war fitness conference some time ago declared that the highest form of recreation is to go to church. The word recreation should be written re-creation. More real rest can be gained from an hour and a quarter of worship under these circumstances than by eighteen holes of golf.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on business, challenge, circumstances, experience, life, opportunity, and time

You do not choose the life you will experience ahead of time. You may select the persons, places and events - the conditions and circumstances, the challenges, the opportunities and options - with which to create experiences. What you create with these is your business.

Neale Donald Walsch

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on absence, advice, attitude, church, circumstances, correction, facts, family, fear, force, friendship, giving, heart, leadership, listening, losing, love, past, pride, resentment, solution, and truth

In moments of truth, when meekness matters, other forces, including pride, flow into the chemistry of that moment. Take, for instance, the matter of receiving correct counsel, whether given by a spouse, a family member, a friend, or a Church leader. Often the counsel, even when spoken in love, is resisted by the recipient who - chained by pride - focuses instead upon the imperfections of the person giving the counsel. In another situation, the recipient may have much pride in the position he or she has already taken and refuse to deny himself or herself the continuation of that conduct, lifestyle, or attitude, which denial is at the heart of the solution. However, those who fear losing face cannot have His image in their countenances. In yet another circumstance, the recipient may, instead of listening to the counsel given, be nursing some past grievance upon which he or she would prefer to focus rather than the real issue at hand. Neither advice-giver nor circumstances can be perfect. Absent mutual meekness, the counsel given may not only go unheeded, but, in fact, may even be resented. Italics added.

A Quote by Marvin J. Ashton on circumstances, depression, difficulty, god, good, and present

With God's help, good cheer permits us to rise above the depressing present or difficult circumstances. It is a process of positive reassurance and reinforcement. It is sunshine when clouds block the light.

Philanthropy is commendable, but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances of economic injustice which make philanthropy necessary.
