A Quote by M. Winette on cheerfulness, cooperation, failure, honesty, laziness, trouble, and work

Personal deficiencies might be termed negative qualities and include unreliability, failure to cooperate, laziness, untidiness, trouble making, interference and dishonesty. Positive qualities would include willingness, cheerfulness, courtesy, honesty, neatness, reliability and temperance. Many fail in their work because they are unable to overcome one personal deficiency. Check up on yourself. Don't be afraid to put yourself under a microscope. Eliminate your negative qualities. Develop your positive ones. You can't win with the check mark in the wrong place.

A Quote by Lewis H. Brown on cooperation, democracy, dictatorship, freedom, lies, order, and principles

We cannot possibly reconcile the principle of democracy, which means cooperation, with the principle of governmental omniscience under which everyone waits for an order before doing anything. That way lies loss of freedom, and dictatorship.

Lewis H. Brown

A Quote by L. G. Elliott on cooperation, day, desires, habits, life, and work

The long span of the bridge of your life is supported by countless cables called habits, attitudes, and desires. What you do in life depends upon what you are and what you want. What you get from life depends upon how much you want it-how much you are willing to work and plan and cooperate and use your resources. The long span of the bridge of your life is supported by countless cables that you are spinning now, and that is why today is such an important day. Make the cables strong!

A Quote by Henry Ford II on cooperation, family, good, nations, people, society, spirit, and welfare

No society of nations, no people within a nation, no family can benefit through mutual aid unless good will exceeds ill will; unless the spirit of cooperation surpasses antagonism; unless we all see and act as though the other man's welfare determines our own welfare.

Henry Ford II (1917 -)

A Quote by Helen Adams Keller on absence, belief, blessings, conviction, cooperation, effort, evil, good, helpful, men, men and women, optimism, patience, rest, soul, struggle, suffering, women, and world

I can say with conviction that the struggle which evil necessitates is one of the greatest blessings. It makes us strong, patient, helpful men and women. It lets us into the soul of things and teaches us that although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcomings of it. My optimism, then, does not rest on the absence of evil, but on a glad belief in the preponderance of good and a willing effort always to cooperate with the good, that it may prevail.

Helen Keller (1880 - 1968)

A Quote by George M. Verity on abuse, america, christianity, civilization, cooperation, democracy, effort, garden, liberty, peace, and world

I know that all things considered, the United States of America, with all of its abuses of democracy and of liberty itself, is still the garden spot of the world, where peace, cooperation and constructive effort can and should prevail always and the cause of a higher Christian civilization advanced.

A Quote by Frank Parker Day on art, books, children, climate, cooperation, desires, feeling, fishing, good, goodness, habits, instinct, interest, joy, life, men, religion, women, work, and world

There are six things that "keep us going." •First, the instinct to live, which we apparently have no part in making or deciding about. •Second, group consciousness and the desire that we have to win the approbation of our fellows within the group. •Third, the various interests that we may find in life, such as religion or art or some such other branch of esthetics. •Fourth, in our climate the habit of work. •Fifth, the sheer joy of physical life that we find in hours of well-earned recreation after hard work -games, fishing, tramping the hills, a good book before an open fire. •Sixth, and most important, the general feeling that we have that there is some abstract goodness or rightness in the world with which we may cooperate in making the world a fine place for a splendid race of men, women and children to live in.

Frank Parker Day (1881 - ?)

A Quote by Edward O. Sisson on character, cooperation, desires, direction, education, eternity, experience, harmony, impulses, individuality, life, principles, progress, purpose, soul, and strength

NATIVE vigor of impulses and desires conserved by education and experience, the establishment of inner harmony and cooperation among the powers and capacities of the soul, the formation of a life purpose, and the direction of the individual life in accordance with the eternal principles of right that underlie human progress, - these are the elements of both strength and righteousness in human character.
