concern

A Quote by Sigmund Freud on anticipation, concern, happiness, investment, justice, and wisdom

Just as a cautious businessman avoids investing all his capital in one concern, so wisdom would probably admonish us also not to anticipate all our happiness from one quarter alone.

Sigmund Freud (1856 - 1939)

A Quote by Robert S. McNamara on balance, belief, concern, memory, and military

...but highly placed sources within the Kennedy Administration disagreed: "[T]he assumption that the strategic nuclear balance mattered in any way was wrong... As far as I am concerned, it made no difference... If my memory serves me correctly, we had some five thousand strategic nuclear warheads as against t heir three hundred. Can anyone seriously tell me that their having three hundred and forty would have made any difference? The military balance wasn't changed. I didn't believe it then, and I don't believe it now..."

A Quote by Robert Macleod on blindness, concern, and motivation

The creator is both detached and committed, free and yet ensnared, concerned but not too much so. . . . If motivation is too strong the person is blinded; if the objective situation is too tightly structured, the person sees none of its alternative possiblities.

That day she put our heads together, Fate had her imagination about her, Your head so much concerned with outer, Mine with inner, weather.

A Quote by Richard G. Scott on adversity, anguish, challenge, concern, disappointment, fatherhood, frustration, learning, life, pain, peace, promises, rest, and understanding

Don't let the workings of adversity totally absorb your life. Try to understand what you can. Act where you are able; then let the matter rest with the Lord for a period while you give to others in worthy ways before you take on appropriate concern again. Please learn that as you wrestle with a challenge and feel sadness because of it, you can simultaneously have peace and rejoicing. Yes, pain, disappointment, frustration, and anguish can be temporary scenes played out on the stage of life. Behind them can be a background of peace and the positive assurance that a loving Father will keep His promises.

Richard G. Scott (1924 -)

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on concern, day, soul, and words

With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on concern, day, foolishness, soul, and words

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day.

A Quote by Paul Harvey on animals, concern, government, and suffering

Ever occur to you why some of us can be this much concerned with animals suffering? Because government is not. Why not? Animals don't vote.

Paul Harvey (1918 -)
