A Quote by Robyn Knibbe on diversity, earth, life, observation, and variety

A Quote by Robert Francis Kennedy on belief, courage, diversity, history, hope, idealism, improvement, injustice, energy, oppression, and time

It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

A Quote by Richard Berendzen on belief, discovery, diversity, earth, and separation

I would like to believe that the discovery of even a single fossil bacteria on Mars would teach us what we ought to know all along, and that is what binds us here on earth - all the diverse peoples here - is really much more profound than what seems to separate us.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on action, diversity, mind, nature, power, principles, thought, and unity

If speculation tends thus to a terrific unity, in which all things are absorbed, action tends directly back to diversity. The first is the course or gravitation of mind; the second is the power of nature. Nature is manifold. The unity absorbs, and melts or reduces. Nature opens and creates. These two principles reappear and interpenetrate all things, all thought; the one, the many.

A Quote by Michel Eyquem de Montaigne on diversity, quality, and world

There never were in the world two opinions alike, no more than two hairs or two grains; the most universal quality is diversity.

A Quote by Michel Eyquem de Montaigne on diversity and judgment

Truly man is a marvelously vain, diverse, and undulating object. It is hard to found any constant and uniform judgment on him.

A Quote by Marquise Magdeleine de Sablé on acceptance, authority, diversity, doubt, freedom, knowledge, and thought

In knowledge of human affairs, we should never allow our minds to be enslaved by others by subjecting ourselves to their whims. We must maintain freedom of thought, and never accept anything of purely human authority into our heads. When we are presented with a diversity of opinions, we must choose, if we can; if we cannot, we must remain in doubt.

A Quote by Leon Merle Flanders, D.D. on clarity, conflict, confusion, diversity, eternity, god, guidance, listening, men, rumor, and thinking

If we want to possess poise and to be capable of clear thinking, it is essential, first of all, to rise above the confusion of conflicting rumors and diverse opinions and listen to the eternal verities which God has given to men for their guidance and preservation.

A Quote by Jules Henri Poincaré on balance, diversity, feeling, happiness, harmony, order, solution, and unity

What is it indeed that gives us the feeling of elegance in a solution, in a demonstration? It is the harmony of the diverse parts, their symmetry, their happy balance; in a word it is all that introduces order, all that gives unity, that permits us to see clearly and to comprehend at once both the ensemble and the details.

A Quote by Joshua Loth Liebman on age, buddhism, courage, diversity, mankind, men, peace, serenity, spirituality, strength, teaching, tears, and understanding

The quest for this unwearied peace is constant and universal. Probe deeply into the teaching of Buddha, Maimonides, or a Kempis, and you will discover that they base their diverse doctrines on the foundation of a large spiritual serenity. Analyze the prayers of troubled, overborne mankind of all creeds, in every age--and their petitions come down to the irreducible common denominators of daily bread and inward peace. Grown men do not pray for vain trifles. When they lift up their hearts and voices in the valley of tears they ask for strength and courage and understanding.
