Lord, make me a crisis man. Let me not be a mile-post on a single road, but make me a fork that men must turn one way or another in facing Christ in me.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on healing, health, illness, disease, sickness, compassion, understanding, culture, treats, treatment, challenge, condemnation, moral judgement, person, grow, heal, enriched, result, better chance, process, larger process, movement,

If a culture treats a particular illness with compassion and enlightened understanding, then sickness can be seen as a challenge, as a healing crisis and opportunity. Being sick is then not a condemnation or a moral judgement, but a movement in a larger process of healing and restoration. When sickness is viewed positively and in supportive terms, then illness has a much better chance to heal, with the concomitant result that the entire person may grown and be enriched in the process. ~ Ken Wilber ~

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on children, crisis, future, home, honor, hope, hospitals, lies, play, preachers, sacrifice, scientists, service, struggle, time, victory, war, women, and world

This is no time to speak of the hopes of the future, or the broader world which lies beyond our struggles and our victory. We have to win that world for our children. We have to win it by our sacrifices. We have not won it yet. The crisis is upon us. . . . In this strange, terrible world war there is a place for everyone, man and woman, old and young, hale and halt; service in a thousand forms is open. There is no room now for the dilettante, the weakling, for the shirker, or the sluggard. The mine, the factory, the dockyard, the salt sea waves, the fields to till, the home, the hospital, the chair of the scientist, the pulpit of the preacher - from the highest to the humblest tasks, all are of equal honor; all have their part to play.

Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

A Quote by William George Jordan on control, crisis, learning, life, nature, peace, self-control, and serenity

Calmness comes from within. It is the peace and restfulness of the depths of our nature. The fury of storm and of wind agitate only the surface of the sea; they penetrate only two or three hundred feet; below that is the calm, unruffled deep. To be ready for the great crises of life we must learn serenity in our daily living. Calmness is the crown of self-control.

A Quote by William George Jordan on confidence, control, crisis, harmony, idealism, life, nature, power, purpose, and quality

Calmness is the rarest quality in human life. It is the poise of a great nature, in harmony with itself and its ideals. It is the moral atmosphere of a life self-centered, self-reliant, and self-controlled. Calmness is singleness of purpose, absolute confidence, and conscious power, ready to be focused in an instant to meet any crises.

A Quote by W. W. Broadbent, MD, PhD on assumptions, crisis, future, good, misery, past, reality, rules, and world

If you're interested in misery, 1- always try to look good in front of others; 2- always live in a world of assumptions and treat each assumption as though it's a reality; 3- relate to every new situation as if it is a small crisis; 4- always live in the future or the past; and 5- occasionally stomp on yourself for being so dumb as to follow the first four rules.

A Quote by unknown on constitution, crisis, day, government, intention, power, solution, and temptation

The Constitution protects us from our own best intentions: It divides power among sovereigns and among branches of government precisely so that we may resist the temptation to concentrate power in one location as an expedient solution to the crisis of the day.
