A Quote by unknown on anger, dependence, feeling, jealousy, and problems

If I'm fearful- If I'm angry- If I'm jealous- If I'm coy- If I feel dependent-the feelings I have are not my problems. My attitudes toward these feelings are my psychological problems.

A Quote by Stephen Strauss on acceptance, age, children, dependence, kindness, nature, and parenthood

I think that the most important thing to teach children in an environmentally conscious age is alternative views of nature. They must be shown how our interpretation of natural systems is often completely dependent not on what is there but on what kind of box we draw around the data. And if they are going to be smarter than their parents, then schoolchildren must think subversively about accepted wisdoms concerning natural systems.

A Quote by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle on audiences, dependence, difficulty, simplicity, and starting

It is not really difficult to construct a series of inferences, each dependent upon its predecessor and each simple in itself. If, after doing so, one simply knocks out all the central inferences and presents one's audience with the starting-point and the conclusion, one may produce a startling, though perhaps a meretricious, effect.

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on dependence, duty, future, god, life, seriousness, present, and understanding

The true felicity of life is to be free from anxieties and perturbations; to understand and do our duties to God and man, and to enjoy the present without any serious dependence on the future.

Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on anxiety, blessings, bravery, certainty, cheerfulness, constancy, contentment, darkness, dependence, duty, equality, fear, fortune, future, god, good, greatness, happiness, hope, indifference, joy, mankind, mind, people

True happiness is to understand our duties toward God and man; to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future; not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears, but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is abundantly sufficient; for he that is so wants nothing. The great blessings of mankind are with us, and within our reach; but we shut our eyes and, like people in the dark, fall foul of the very thing we search for without finding it. Tranquility is a certain equality of mind which no condition of fortune can either exalt or depress. There must be sound mind to make a happy man; there must be constancy in all conditions, a care for the things of this world but without anxiety; and such an indifference to the bounties of fortune that either with them or without them we may live content. True joy is serene. . . . The seat of it is within, and there is no cheerfulness like the resolution of a brave mind that has fortune under its feat. It is an invincible greatness of mind not to be elevated or dejected with good or ill fortune. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it be - without wishing for what he has not.

Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)

A Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge on dependence, difficulty, logic, poetry, poets, reason, and science

Poetry, even that of the loftiest, and seemingly, that of the wildest odes, [has] a logic of its own as severe as that of science; and more difficult, because more subtle, more complex, and dependent on more and more fugitive causes. In the truly great poets... there is a reason assignable, not only for every word, but for the position of every word.

All prosperity begins in the mind and is dependent only on the full use of our creative imagination.

A Quote by Roger Ward Babson on character, dependence, economics, future, gold, people, and success

A character standard is far more important than even a gold standard. The success of all economic systems is still dependent upon both righteous leaders and righteous people. In the last analysis, our national future depends upon our national character that is, whether it is spiritually or materially minded.

A Quote by Patrick Jake "P.J." O'Rourke on america, authority, cats, dependence, dogs, facts, needs, people, pets, and understanding

It is easy to understand why the cat has eclipsed the dog as modern America's favorite pet. People like pets to possess the same qualities they do. Cats are irresponsible and recognize no authority, yet are completely dependent on others for their material needs. Cats cannot be made to do anything useful. Cats are mean for the fun of it. In fact, cats possess so many of the same qualities as some people that it is often hard to tell the people and the cats apart.

P.J. O'Rourke (1947 -)

A Quote by Martin L. Gross on anxiety, children, dependence, food, and government

If you're poor, Washington provides food stamps, Aid to Families with Dependent Children payments, and subsidized housing. If you're rich, you can buy tax-free municipal bonds and thumb your nose at the IRS. But if you're a working stiff, you can expect only anxiety and the government's hand deep in your pocket.
