A Quote by Susan Polis Schutz on control, happiness, life, love, nature, and power

This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.

A Quote by Sterling W. Sill on ability, children, control, death, design, eternity, gifts, god, good, judgment, life, limits, mistakes, necessity, seriousness, understanding, and welfare

It is a serious mistake to judge God within the narrow limits of our own understanding and abilities. God has created the worlds without number and is able to hold them all in perfect control. But even the greatest worlds are not the most prized of God's creations. The welfare of his children is far more important, and he has said that the greatest of all his gifts is the eternal life that he bestows upon us. We know that death is good. Certainly we would not dare to say that any procedure or design of God was superfluous or whimsical. On the contrary, there is a great deal of evidence, scriptural and otherwise that death is an inescapable necessity in God's plan for human redemption.

A Quote by Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington on control, laws, mind, nature, and success

It is one thing for the human mind to extract from the phenomena of nature the laws which it has itself put into them; it may be a far harder thing to extract laws over which it has no control. It is even possible that laws which have not their origin in the mind may be irrational, and we can never succeed in formulating them.

A Quote by Sidonie Gabrielle Claudine Colette on cats, control, deception, honor, kindness, needs, silence, and time

I am indebted to the cat for a particular kind of honorable deceit, for a greater control over myself, for a characteristic aversion to brutal sounds, and for the need to keep silent for long periods of time.

A Quote by Shui-ch'ing Tzu on control, desires, existence, heaven, and mind

When the mind is disturbed, it is attracted by ten thousand things. With attraction, craving will arise. With craving, the desire to obtain things to satisfy craving will emerge. The mind that desires is rooted in earthly existence and is controlled by the pa-k'ua of Later Heaven.

A Quote by Shui-ch'ing Tzu on compassion, control, and horses

In the center of compassion is the place of union, Inside the Mysterious Gate is the realm of yao-chi. Lock up the monkey and ape so they cannot run away. Tame the wild horse so that it cannot get out of control. Grasp the opening of the Gate and when cultivation is complete, The beam of golden light will penetrate your entire being.
