contentment

A Quote by U.S. Supreme Court on clarity, contentment, facts, order, and speech

[The Communications Decency Act] lacks the precision that the First Amendment requires when a statute regulates the content of speech. In order to deny minors access to potentially harmful speech, the CDA effectively suppresses a large amount of speech that adults have a constitutional right to receive and to address to one another.... In evaluating the free speech rights of adults, we have made it perfectly clear that sexual expression which is indecent but not obscene is protected by the First Amendment. Where obscenity is not involved, we have consistently held that the fact that protected speech may be offensive to some does not justify its suppression.

A Quote by U.S. Supreme Court on absence, censorship, contentment, democracy, freedom, ideas, interest, society, speech, and traditions

As a matter of constitutional tradition, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, we presume that governmental regulation of the content of speech is more likely to interfere with the free exchange of ideas than to encourage it. The interest in encouraging freedom of expression in a democratic society outweighs any theoretical but unproven benefit of censorship.

A Quote by unknown on business, chastity, christ, contentment, discretion, family, fatherhood, friendship, god, happiness, hospitality, jesus, needs, providence, purity, rest, reward, saints, study, virtue, work, and world

The true gentleman is God's servant. The world's master and his own man. Virtue is his business, study his recreation. Contentment his rest and happiness his reward. God is his father, Jesus Christ his Savior, the Saints his brethren, and all that need him his friends. Devotion is his chaplain, chastity his chamberlain, sobriety his butler, temperance his work, hospitality his housekeeper, providence his steward, purity his mistress of the house, and discretion his porter, to be let in and out as most fit; thus is his whole family made up of virtue and he is the master of the house.

A Quote by unknown on beginning, contentment, death, despair, good, justice, optimism, soul, strength, and struggle

The Optimistic Frog Two frogs fell in a deep bowl, One was an optimistic soul, But the other took the gloomy view. "We shall drown," he cried without more adieu. So with a last despairing cry He flung up his legs and said good-bye. Quoth the other frog with a merry grin, "I can't get out, but I won't give in; I'll just swim around till my strength is spent, Then will I die the more content." Bravely he swam till it would seem His struggles began to churn the cream. On top of the butter at last he stopped, And out of the bowl he gaily hopped. What of the moral? 'Tis easily found: If you can't hop out, keep swimming around.

On the days that are summer sweet and full of a thousand dreams, I will love you. On the days when thunder and rain come dashing against our hopes, I will love you. On the days when we share a quiet world of contentment, I will love you. On all the days, through all the seasons of our lives, I will give you my heart . . . I will give you my love.

A Quote by unknown on children, contentment, friendship, time, understanding, wishes, and path

"The road is too rough, dear Lord," I cried, "There are stones that hurt me so." "My child," He said, "I understand, I walked it long ago." "But there's a cool green path ahead, Let me walk there for a time." "No child," He gently answered me, "The green road does not climb." "My burden," I cried, "is far too great. How can I bear this load?" "Dear One," said He, "I remember its weight-I carried my cross, you know." "But," I said, "I wish there were friends with me, that would make their way my own." "Oh yes," He said, "Gethsemane was hard to bear alone." And so I climbed the stony path, Content at least to know That where the Master had not gone, I would not have to go. And strangely then I found new friends, My burdens grew less sore, As I remembered long ago He walked that way before.

A Quote by unknown on community, contentment, gold, good, happiness, health, people, schools, and work

It demoralizes any community to give them gold and silver to their hearts content. But give them iron and coal, good hard work, plenty to eat, good schools, and good doctrines and it will make them a healthy, wealthy, and happy people

A Quote by Tyler Powell on belief, books, choice, contentment, conversation, culture, decisions, good, justice, life, people, reflection, society, and understanding

I can't believe I'm having this conversation . . . With you! You've probably never read a book in your life that wasn't written by John Grisham. You don't get it. People like you are so content to write-off English. English just isn't about analysing stories - if it was, I wouldn't be like this. Stories, novels, whatever . . . reflect something about the writer . . . and the culture . . . and the society that it came from. It's a mirror - a mirror to ourselves. And when we do it right, when we just get it, we know something about ourselves. English is an understanding of the self. If we can see ourselves clearly, we know the right decision to make. And if you don't know who you are and make the wrong choices, what good is it if you can make two-hundred and fifty thousand?
