difficult

A Quote by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross on light, people, dark, hard, difficulty, difficult, depression, beauty, and shine

People are like stained-glass windows.  They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

A Quote by unknown on terror of tomorrow, shambhala, edwin firmage, law, weapons, exterior, interior, control, left-hand quadrants, right-hand technologies, difficult, and destiny with death

    "Edwin Firmage, a recognized authority on constitutional and international law, who has worked for several decades on the control of nuclear weapons, has written that 'Law [exterior legal control] can help, but it leaves you hopelessly short of where we must be. Even if by law you could eliminate all nuclear weapons from the earth by fiat, you don't lobotomize a generation of physicists. You could begin the whole process of arms racing again. How do you change the souls of human beings? You have to go where law can't get you....'22 You have to go, that is, to the interior quadrants and the growth of the soul, the growth of wisdom, the growth of consciousness, an interior growth in the Left-Hand quadrants that will keep pace with the growth in Right-Hand technologies. 23 And it simply does not matter that this is an impossibly difficult task; the alternative is painfully clear.

    Whatever the solutions to these problems, the discussion must surely shift to an integral platform, because anything less than that leaves out fundamental dimensions of the crisis, which will then more likely speed out of control on its merry way to a destiny with death."

A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on difficult, power, capacity, and proper

Because a thing is difficult for you, do not therefore suppose it beyond mortal power. On the contrary, if anything is possible and proper for a man to do, assume that it must fall within your own capacity.

A Quote by Niccoló Machiavelli on difficult, doubtful, success, dangerous, initiate, new order, reformer, enemies, profit, old order, defenders, fear, adversaries, laws, incredulity, mankind, believe, and experience

There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle, than to initiate a new order of things.  For the reformer has enemies in all those who profit by the old order, and only lukewarm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order, this lukewarmness arising partly from fear of their adversaries, who have the laws in their favour; and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who do not truly believe in anything new until they have had the actual experience of it.

Niccolo Machiavelli (1469 - 1527)

A Quote by M. Scott Peck on life, difficult, truth, truths, transcend, transcendance, understand, acceptance, accept, road, and travel

Life is difficult.

This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it.

Once we truly know that life is difficult - once we truly understand and accept it - then life is no longer difficult.

Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.

M. Scott Peck
