confusion

A Quote by Rush H. Limbaugh III on belief, confusion, danger, enemies, growth, history, home, legacy, liberals, media, nations, perception, politicians, prosperity, sharing, and strength

Regarding Ronald Reagan: Liberals correctly perceive the Reagan record as their most dangerous enemy. Why? Because what happened during the 1980s - prosperity at home (the longest period of peacetime growth in this nation's history, strength abroad - directly contradicts every liberal belief. Bill Clinton has confused many about the 1980s and the Reagan legacy. His patently false mantra states, "The rich got richer, the poor got poorer. The rich didn't pay their fair share, etc." The 1980s have been intentionally mischaracterized by slick liberal politicians with the complicity of the mainstream media.

A Quote by Richard Marcinko on anger, change, confusion, insecurity, leadership, life, past, and people

Change hurts. It makes people insecure, confused, and angry. People want things to be the same as they've always been, because that makes life easier. But, if you're a leader, you can't let your people hang on to the past.

A Quote by Peter Steele on confusion, death, insecurity, life, and people

I had hit a critical period in my life, where I changed very much as a person. I consider the person I used to be, dead, and I'm glad that he is. Insecure, frightened, confused, much like a lot of people I know today.

A Quote by Orson Hyde on children, confusion, control, devil, discipline, god, learning, mind, and mortality

It [the mind] is the agent of the Almighty clothed with mortal tabernacles, and we must learn to discipline it, and bring it to bear on one point, and not allow the Devil to interfere and confuse it, nor divert it from the great object we have in view. . . . If we could control our own minds, we could control our children and our families and the kingdom of God, and see that everything went right, and with much more ease than we do now.

A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on attitude, belief, confusion, desires, faith, god, prayer, and wisdom

God in His answers to prayer often says "Yes." Sometimes He says "Wait." Often He says "No." In any case, His will is done, and true faith is to believe that what happened has happened for the best. If one does not take that attitude, he is setting his personal desire against the wisdom of God. Oftentimes we confuse with faith merely that which we desire.

A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on anxiety, clarity, confusion, day, friendship, life, losing, power, privacy, time, world, and worry

Worry is a peculiar thing. It is like a dust storm on a hot day. You can become confused and lose your way. I was in Wichita, Kansas, some time ago, when I had to fly to Cincinnati. A friend sent me in a private plane. When we were crossing the Mississippi River, the sky grew hazy. "We can't see where we're going,"I said to the pilot. He replied,"We'll go up above the haze-level." "What's the haze-level," I asked. "Ground heat, dust, and smoke combine to form the haze-level. We'll go up another thousand feet and get above it." We did and emerged into an altogether different world, clear and beautiful. The pilot commented, "Life is something like this, isn't it? Down there they are groping in the haze. Up here, we have clarity and can see our way. Next time you find yourself bogged down in anxiety and worry, say to yourself, "I will not be disturbed by this thing. I will look at it coolly and logically. I will rise above the haze-level." You will find that your worry has lost its power.

A Quote by Nicholas Copernicus on astronomy, beginning, certainty, confusion, discovery, earth, facts, learning, machines, opportunity, reason, reflection, schools, teachers, time, traditions, understanding, universe, vision, and world

The Copernican vision of an earth in motion was not without its rudimentary precedents, as Copernicus himself recounts: "For a long time then, I reflected on this confusion in the astronomical traditions concerning the derivation of the motions of the universe's spheres. I began to be annoyed that the movements of the world machine, created for our sake by the best and most systematic Artisan of all, were not understood with greater certainty by the philosophers, who otherwise examined so precisely the most insignificant trifles of this world. For this reason I undertook the task of rereading the works of all the philosophers which I could obtain to learn whether anyone had ever proposed other motions of the universe's spheres than those expounded by the teachers of astronomy in the schools. And in fact I found in Cicero that Hicetas supposed the earth to move. Later I also discovered in Plutarch that certain others were of this opinion. . . . Therefore, having obtained the opportunity from these sources, I too began to consider the mobility of the earth."
