A Quote by Dr. Samuel Johnson on confidence, consequences, difficulty, experience, honesty, knowledge, men, perception, questions, and uncertainty

It is very natural for young men to be vehement, acrimonious and severe. For as they seldom comprehend at once all the consequences of a position, or perceive the difficulties by which cooler and more experienced reasoners are restrained from confidence, they form their conclusions with great precipitance. Seeing nothing that can darken or embarrass the question, they expect to find their own opinion universally prevalent, and are inclined to impute uncertainty and hesitation to want of honesty, rather than of knowledge.

A Quote by Saint Augustine of Hippo on certainty, consequences, death, force, kindness, life, needs, and time

Of this I am certain, that no one has ever died who was not destined to die some time. Now the end of life puts the longest life on a par with the shortest. . . . And of what consequence is it what kind of death puts an end to life, since he who has died once is not forced to go through the same ordeal a second time? They, then, who are destined to die, need not be careful to inquire what death they are to die, but into what place death will usher them.

Saint Augustine of Hippo (354 - 430)

While we are free to choose, once we have made those choices, we are tied to the consequences of those choices.

A Quote by Russel M. Nelson on addiction, children, choice, consequences, drugs, freedom, gifts, god, habits, life, power, spirit, and world

Agency, or the power to choose, was ours as spirit children of our Creator before the world was. It is a gift from God, nearly as precious as life itself. Often, however, agency is misunderstood. While we are free to choose, once we have made those choices, we are tied to the consequence of those choices. We are free to take drugs or not. But once we choose to use a habit-forming drug, we are bound to the consequences of that choice. Addiction surrenders later freedom to choose.

A Quote by Ronald Butt on children, christianity, civilization, consequences, deed, humanity, life, and shame

For nearly 2,000 years of Christian civilization, taking the life of an unborn child was regarded as a vile and heinous moral offense which degraded humanity. . . . Abortions to avoid illegitimate births, or otherwise for convenience, were performed with a secrecy that was as much the mark of the shame attaching to the deed as a consequence of its illegality.

A Quote by Robert W. Shaunon on authors, consequences, language, perfection, quotations, thought, trifle, and truth

Perhaps the reader may ask, of what consequence is it whether the author's exact language is preserved or not, provided we have his thought? The answer is, that inaccurate quotation is a sin against truth. It may appear in any particular instance to be a trifle, but perfection consists in small things, and perfection is no trifle.
