A Quote by Alexander Emmanuel (Alex) Rodriguez on day, dogs, future, goals, learning, life, needs, past, people, play, present, and thinking

I'm focussing on what I haven't attained, not what I have. A lot has come to me early. I don't want to get consumed with that. Winners live in the present tense. People who come up short are consumed with future or past. I want to be living in the now. My goal is to play one full game in the now, but I haven't even gotten past the first inning yet. I start thinking about where my mom is or if my dogs have been fed. The average human has 2,000 thoughts a day. The really accomplished have 1,500 because you can focus longer. I need to learn how to focus longer.

A Quote by Abu-Hamid Muhammad al-Ghazzali on devil, dogs, divinity, nature, and saints

Man's nature is made up of four elements, which produce in him four attributes, namely, the beastly, the brutal, the satanic, and the divine. In man there is something of the pig, the dog, the devil, and the saint.

A Quote by Aeschylus on dogs, heaven, lies, men, and mortality

I pray the gods some respite from the weary task of this long year's watch that lying on the Atreidae's roof on bended arm, dog- like, I have kept, marking the conclave of all night's stars, those potentates blazing in the heavens that bring winter and summer to mortal men, the constellations, when they wane, when they rise.

A Quote by Abram Linwood Urban on art, dogs, garden, nature, and purpose

Nature in the garden is nature tamed, cultivated, made subservient to human purpose, brought into subjection to conscious purpose. A garden is not merely a piece of nature fenced in near the house, like a wolf chained at the back door; but nature cultivated and trained like a dog tamed and trained for human ends. Art in the garden is the human element appropriating and elevating the natural for human purpose.

A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on dogs


How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg.

A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on consequences, control, dogs, self-control, temper, time, yielding, and path

Quarrel not at all. No man resolved to make the most of himself can spare time for personal contention. Still less can he afford to take all the consequences, including the vitiation of his temper and loss of self-control. Yield larger things to which you can show no more than equal right; and yield lesser ones, though clearly your own. Better give your path to a dog than be bitten by him in contesting for the right. Even killing the dog would not cure the bite.

Abraham Lincoln (1809 - 1865)
