A Quote by Marvin J. Ashton on challenge, concern, cooperation, food, good, mind, parenthood, people, reading, and youth

I challenge youth to cooperate with parents who are concerned about your reading and your viewing. Be concerned yourself about what you take into your mind. Young people, you would never eat a meal of spoiled or contaminated food if you could help it, would you? Select your reading and viewing carefully and in good taste.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on concern, giving, pity, soul, and sympathy

Pity may represent little more than the impersonal concern which prompts the mailing of a check, but true sympathy is the personal concern which demands the giving of one's soul.

My biggest concern during a race is getting bored. The biggest thing I have to combat is falling asleep while going around and around.

A Quote by Luigi Cornaro on concern, habits, and life

Any man who leads the regular and temperate life, not swerving from it in the least degree where his nourishment is concerned, can be but little affected by other disorders or incidental mishaps. Whereas, on the other hand, I truly conclude that disorderly habits of living are those which are fatal.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on business, concern, judgment, life, and media

Edwards said he would like to be remembered for the impact he has had on the lives of his players. In this business we are judged by wins and losses in the media. I don't discount that, but I've never concerned myself much with that . . . except that it helps me stay employed.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on concern, decisions, hope, needs, past, perception, questions, schools, and sharing

Commenting on the decisions of the Bowl Alliance regarding WAC teams: It's a step, no question. Obviously, it's not what any of us wanted, but it's at least a step. We can now say we're part of the Alliance. However, I hope it's not perceived that they bought us off and we're going to go away. It's not fair. It's not right; we still need to fight. We can't let them go away and hide. Other schools are taking a major share of the pot, and that's still a major sore point as far as I'm concerned. But at least this is a step, and better than what we had in the past.

A Quote by L. Lionel Kendrick on challenge, children, communication, concern, divinity, fatherhood, feeling, gifts, home, journeys, life, mortality, needs, people, relationships, silence, and suffering

The real challenge that we face in our communications with others is to condition our hearts to have Christlike feelings for all of Heavenly Father's children. When we develop this concern for the condition of others, we then will communicate with them as the Savior would. We will then warm the hearts of those who may be suffering in silence. As we meet people with special needs along life's way, we can then make their journey brighter by the things that we say. Christlike communications will help us to develop righteous relationships and ultimately to return to our heavenly home safely. May we treasure the divine gift of communication, and may we use it wisely to build and to assist others on this marvelous journey through mortality.

A Quote by Katherine Dunham on concern


I wasn't concerned about the hardships, because I always felt I was doing what I had to do, what I wanted to do and what I was destined to do.

A Quote by Judith Crist on concern, entertainment, and literature

[Youngsters] are nurtured from infancy on a Dick-and-Jane literary and artistic level; and the cultural drought, as far as entertainment is concerned, sets in when they are between six and eight.
