A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on compass

in

Because your own strength is unequal to the task, do not assume that it is beyond the powers of man; but if anything is within the powers and province of man, believe that it is within your own compass also.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on vision, value, principles, goals, mission, conscience, direction, time management, compass, clock, and struggle

Our struggle to put first things first can be characterized by the contrast between two powerful tools that direct us: the clock and the compass.  The clock represents our commitments, appointments, schedules, goals, activities -- what we do with, and how we manage our time.  The compass represents our vision, values, principles, mission, conscience, direction -- what we feel is important and how we lead our lives.  In an effort to close the gap between the clock and the compass in our lives, many of us turn to the field of "time management."

Stephen Covey (1932 -)

A Quote by Elizabeth Berg on inside self, outside self, compass, and sad direction

My inside self and my outside self used to match.  A compass needle pointed true north.  Now the needle spins around and around indicating the sad direction of nowhere.

A Quote by Joan Chittister on longing, life, compass, guide, navigation, and journey

Longing is a compass that guides us through life.  We may never get what we really want, that's true, but every step along the way will be determined by it.
