A Quote by Robert Blair on consequences, correction, discipline, fortune, heart, knowledge, mind, principles, and virtue

That discipline which corrects the eagerness of worldly passions, which fortifies the heart with virtuous principles, which enlightens the mind with useful knowledge, and furnishes to it matter of enjoyment from within itself, is of more consequence to real felicity than all the provisions which we can make of the goods of fortune.

Robert Blair (1699 - 1746)

A Quote by Princess Diana on change, consequences, day, expectation, kindness, knowledge, punishment, reward, and risk

Perhaps we're too embarrassed to change or too frightened of the consequences of showing that we actually care. But why not risk it anyway? Begin Today. Carry out a random act of seemingly senseless kindness, with no expectation or reward or punishment. Safe in the knowledge that one day, someone somewhere might do the same for you.

A Quote by Patrick Jake "P.J." O'Rourke on consequences, duty, and human rights

There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on accidents, automobiles, consequences, defense, driving, fatherhood, gifts, god, mercy, mortality, pain, parenthood, principles, sons, suffering, teenage, and time

Some mistakenly misread the mercy and graciousness of God. For instance, some partial believers are always scolding God, or disregarding Him, because of the observable and lamentable consequences of our misuse of God's gift to us of moral agency. It is as if a teenage son, given his first car, promptly had an accident with resulting pain, suffering, and expense, and the errant son then railed at his father for permitting the suffering resulting from the son's misuse of the gift of the automobile. Granted, in defense of the analogy, mortal parents ought not to give youngsters automobiles too soon, and then only when they have provided wise counsel, driver training, and so on. But there still comes a time when, if they are ever to drive alone, trained teenagers must be left alone at the wheel. The principle is the same with us in the second estate.

A Quote by Morris L. West on acceptance, conflict, consequences, darkness, death, doubt, life, needs, risk, and security

One has to abandon altogether the search for security, and reach out to the risk of living with both arms. One has to court doubt and darkness as the cost of knowing. One needs a will stubborn in conflict, but apt always to total acceptance of every consequence of living and dying.
