effort

A Quote by Elizabeth Lawrence on effort, garden, and needs

Any garden demands as much of its maker as he has to give. But I do not need to tell you, if you are a gardener, that not other undertaking will give as great a return for the amount of effort put into it.

A Quote by Elbert Green Hubbard on defeat, effort, failure, success, and victory

When on the brink of complete discouragement, success is discerning that . . . the line between failure and success is so fine that often a single extra effort is all that is needed to bring victory out of defeat.

Elbert Hubbard (1856 - 1915)

A Quote by Elaine L. Jack on beginning, choice, circumstances, effort, exercise, faith, happiness, hope, investment, life, meaning, prayer, and seasons

Testimony is a result of choice, not circumstance. In all seasons of my life, testimony has been a conscious choice - and this choice has given everything else in my life meaning. Building a testimony is the beginning of building a happy life. Testimony grows step by step as we invest the effort to exercise faith and hope as active parts of everyday living. Prayer is a major tool to help us gain faith and hope.

A Quote by Elaine L. Jack on bitterness, direction, effort, god, labor, needs, weather, and work

The fruit of our labors is sweet when the work is consecrated to God. But we have to be able to weather the conditions - the winds, the rain or the drought, the brilliant sun and sometimes the bitter cold. Sometimes our work needs to be directed at improving our ground rather than excusing our own harvests because the place we have been given is a little hard; there are too many rocks, too many hills, too little top soil. If we focus on where we are instead of what we can do with our plot, we will find our efforts significantly diminished.

A Quote by Edward Young on aim, death, effort, honesty, life, nature, peace, and path

The man who consecrates his hours by vigorous effort, and an honest aim, at once he draws the sting of life and Death; he walks with nature; and her paths are peace.

Edward Young (1683 - 1765)

A Quote by Edith Hamilton on driving, effort, facts, failure, mind, music, power, and reason

There is a field where all wonderful perfections of microscope and telescope fail, all exquisite niceties of weights and measures, as well as that which is behind them, the keen and driving power of the mind. No facts however indubitably detected, no effort of reason however magnificently maintained, can prove that Bach's music is beautiful.

A Quote by Edgar Albert Guest on cleverness, duty, effort, errors, friendship, glory, honesty, justice, labor, money, needs, neighbors, people, pity, simplicity, trying, wishes, and youth

Be a friend. You don't need money: Just a disposition sunny; Just the wish to help another Get along some way or other; Just a kindly had extended Out to one who's unbefriended; Just the will to give or lend, This will make you someone's friend. Be a friend. You don't need glory. Friendship is a simple story. Pass by trifling errors blindly, Gaze on honest effort kindly, Cheer the youth who's bravely trying, Pity him who's sadly sighing; Just a little labor spend On the duties of a friend. Be a friend. The pay is bigger (Though not written by a figure) Tan is earned by people clever In what's merely self-endeavor. You'll have friends instead of neighbors For the profits of your labors; You'll be richer in the end Than a prince, if you're a friend.

A Quote by Edgar Watson "Ed" Howe on effort, ideas, life, people, and success

If you succeed in life, you must do it in spite of the efforts of others to pull you down. There is nothing in the idea that people are willing to help those who help themselves. People are willing to help a man who can't help himself, but as soon as a man is able to help himself, and does it, they join in making his life as uncomfortable as possible.

Ed Howe (1853 - 1937)

A Quote by Earl Wilson on audiences, effort, and rest

Many a standing ovation has been caused by someone jumping to his feet in an effort to beat the rest of the audience to the parking lot.

A Quote by Earl O. Shreve on agriculture, boldness, discovery, effort, future, government, labor, lies, miracles, optimism, progress, promises, science, technology, war, welfare, and world

Despite world unrest, the frontiers of the future lie invitingly before us. They stretch to fabulous horizons of scientific and technological discovery-all holding promise of contribution to the national welfare. But these frontiers of tomorrow call for bold enterprise-for optimism, for the united effort of industry, labor, agriculture and government. In the mounting miracles of science, in the rapid advances of technology, lie the foundations for almost countless new industries and for far swifter social progress. This promise of progress is daily taking more definite shape and clearer form, as it shakes free of the post-war mists.
