direction

A Quote by unknown on direction, revenge, and time

Revenge is like a boomerang. Although for a time it flies in the direction in which it is hurled, it takes a sudden curve, and returning hits your own head the heaviest blow of all.

A Quote by unknown on business, direction, government, inflation, statistics, and value

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is one of the more insidious statistics developed by our government because it directs the hostility of the inflation-weary public toward business and the marketplace instead of toward the cause: government mismanagement of currency and credit. . . . Real prices are not going up! The value of currency is going down.

A Quote by unknown on abuse, animals, direction, eternity, force, freedom, god, good, goodness, grace, hell, improvement, justice, kindness, life, love, men, mind, persuasion, reason, soul, truth, and wisdom

Know this, that ev'ry soul is free To choose his life and what he'll be; For this eternal truth is giv'n That God will force no man to heav'n. He'll call, persuade, direct aright, And bless with wisdom, love and light, In nameless ways be good and kind, But never force the human mind. Freedom and reason make us men; Take these away, what are we then? Mere animals, and just as well The beasts may think of heav'n or hell. May we no more our pow'rs abuse, But ways of truth and goodness choose; Our God is pleased when we improve His grace and seek his perfect love.

A Quote by Thomas Stearns Eliot on colors, death, direction, force, losing, men, soul, and violence

Shape without form, shade without color, Paralyzed force, gesture without motion; Those who have crossed With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom Remember us-if at all-not as lost Violent souls, but only As the hollow men The stuffed men.

T.S. Eliot (1888 - 1965)

A Quote by Truman G. Madsen on communication, concern, confidence, direction, fatherhood, freedom, power, sons, spirit, trust, and words

When we have enough confidence in the discerning power of the Spirit, we stop worrying so much about forms and are concerned more to open up what is really deep within us, things that we cannot even find words or sounds for. Then the Spirit translates and transmits our strivings. We can take our strivings, even those we cannot express, and know that as we silently, prayerfully direct them toward the Father and the Son, the Spirit will translate them perfectly. In turn, the Spirit can communicate the Lord's response as can no other power. A great confidence and a great freedom can come when we trust the Spirit for that.

A Quote by Anthony (Tony) Robbins on ability, behavior, change, desires, direction, fulfillment, kindness, life, needs, people, power, sharing, thought, value, work, and world

I don't think of power in terms of conquering people. I don't think of it as something to be imposed. That kind of power seldom lasts. But you should realize that power is a constant in the world. You shape your perceptions, or someone shapes them for you. You do what you want to do, or you respond to someone else's plan for you. To me, ultimate power is the ability to produce the results you desire most and create value for others in the process. Power is the ability to change your life, to shape your perceptions, to make things work for you and not against you. Real power is shared, not imposed. It's the ability to define human needs and to fulfill them-both your needs and the needs of the people you care about. It's the ability to direct your own personal kingdom-your own thought processes, your own behavior-so you produce the precise results you desire.

Tony Robbins (1960 -)
