A Quote by Bede the Venerable on angels, art, christ, day, earth, fatherhood, glory, god, praise, songs, spirit, and world

A hymn of glory let us sing; New songs throughout the world shall ring: Christ, by a road before untrod, Now rises to the throne of God. The holy apostolic band Upon the Mount of Olives stand; And with his followers they see Their Lord's ascending majesty. To them the angels drawing nigh, "Why stand and gaze upon the sky? This is the Savior," thus they say; "This is his glorious triumph day. "Again shall ye behold him so As ye today have seen him go, In glorious pomp ascending high, Up to the portals of the sky." O risen Christ, ascended Lord, All praise to thee let earth accord, Who art, while endless ages run, With Father and with Spirit one.

Bede the Venerable (673 - 735)

A Quote by Basil S. Walsh on ability, age, belief, cheating, day, failure, fortune, home, laws, life, men, needs, opportunity, possessions, reason, sales, strength, success, suffering, time, and truth

One big reason why men do not develop greater abilities, greater sales strength, greater resourcefulness is because they use neither their abilities nor their opportunities. We don't need more strength or more ability or greater opportunity. What we need is to use what we have. Men fail and their families suffer deprivations when all the time these men have in their possession the same assets other men are utilizing to accumulate a fortune. . . . Life doesn't cheat. It doesn't pay in counterfeit coin. It doesn't lock up shop and go home when pay-day comes. It pays every man exactly what he has earned. The age-old law that a man gets what he earns hasn't been suspended. When we take that truth home and believe it, we've turned a big corner on the high road that runs straight through to success.

A Quote by Bartolomé de Las Casas on day, discovery, misery, murder, and suffering

"The pattern established at the outset has remained to this day, and the Spaniards still do nothing save tear the natives to shreds, murder them and inflict upon them untold misery, suffering and distress, tormenting, harrying and persecuting them mercilessly." According to Las Casas, atrocities continued unabated in the Americas, even half a century after the discovery.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on day, men, and mind

in

John Galt is Prometheus who changed his mind. After centuries of being torn by vultures in payment for having brought to men the fire of the gods, he broke his chains and he withdrew his fire - until the day when men withdraw their vultures.

A Quote by Arturo Toscanini on belief, day, kiss, time, and women

When I was young, I kissed my first woman, and smoked my first cigarette on the same day. Believe me, never since have I wasted any more time on tobacco.

A Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer on day, driving, emptiness, faults, force, good, manners, mercy, needs, pain, people, society, and time

On a cold winter's day, a group of porcupines huddled together to stay warm and keep from freezing. But soon they felt one another's quills and moved apart. When the need for warmth brought them closer together again, their quills again forced them apart. They were driven back and forth at the mercy of their discomforts until they found the distance from one another that provided both a maximum of warmth and a minimum of pain. In human beings, the emptiness and monotony of the isolated self produces a need for society. This brings people together, but their many offensive qualities and intolerable faults drive them apart again. The optimum distance that they finally find that permits them to coexist is embodied in politeness and good manners. Because of this distance between us, we can only partially satisfy our need for warmth, but at the same time, we are spared the stab of one another's quills.

A Quote by Arthur Kudner on dawn, day, death, fear, home, hope, learning, life, love, names, peace, people, war, and words

Never fear big long words. Big long words mean little things. All big things have little names, Such as life and death, peace and war, Or dawn, day, night, hope, love, home. Learn to use little words in a big way. It is hard to do, But they say what you mean. When you don't know what you mean, Use big words That often fools little people.
