A Quote by Hugh W. Nibley on business, curiosity, discipline, life, energy, and work

Work is, after all, not a busy running back and forth in established grooves, though that is the essence of our modern business and academic life, but the supreme energy and disciplined curiosity required to cut new grooves.

A Quote by Howard W. Hunter on day, discipline, god, learning, needs, spirituality, and understanding

To discipline ourselves through fasting brings us in tune with God, and fast day provides an occasion to set aside the temporal so that we might enjoy the higher qualities of the spiritual. As we fast on that day we learn and better understand the needs of those who are less fortunate.

A Quote by Henry Ward Beecher on discipline, heart, and love

Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep burning, unquenchable.

A Quote by Henry Miller on acceptance, beauty, defeat, discipline, evil, joy, life, mind, pain, strength, and vision

Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to,everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate, or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil,can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.

A Quote by H. Ross Perot on balance, commitment, discipline, humility, nature, needs, and success

Something in human nature causes us to start slacking off at our moment of greatest accomplishment. As you become successful, you will need a great deal of self-discipline not to lose your sense of balance, humility and commitment.

A Quote by Grant Von Harrison on ability, control, devil, direction, discipline, exercise, faith, heaven, learning, mind, and power

Until you learn to discipline your mind and have complete control over it, you will be expressly limited in your capacity to exercise faith. The full power of the mind is only realized when it is specifically focused and directed to a specific end. If you allow your mind to dwell randomly on incidental or mundane preoccupations, you will be limited in your ability to draw on the power of faith and your mind will not be a source of power for you. You will discover, however, that as you attempt to control and focus your mind, the devil will bring things to your view to distract you. When you can control your mind and not allow it to be distracted, you will be able to exercise unlimited faith and unlock the powers of heaven by your faith.

A Quote by George Washington on army, discipline, service, and superiority

Nothing is more harmful to the service, than the neglect of discipline; for that discipline, more than numbers, gives one army superiority over another.

A Quote by George Washington on army, discipline, soul, success, and weakness

Discipline is the soul of an army. It makes small numbers formidable, procures success to the weak, and esteem to all.
