A Quote by Louis Slesin on change, environment, life, energy, and mountains

We're electrical beings living in a magnetic environment. . . . Because we're finely tuned to subtle energy fields, when they vary, as they would on top of a mountain, we change biologically and psychologically too.

A Quote by Karl Raimund Popper on belief, correction, danger, environment, facts, politics, and world

The belief in a political Utopia is especially dangerous. This is possibly connected with the fact that the search for a better world, like the investigation of our environment, is (if I am correct) one of the oldest and most important of all the instincts.

Karl Popper (1902 - 1994)

A Quote by Jon Wynne-Tyson on diet and environment

We must develop a better sense of responsibilty towards our total environment ... this better sense cannot any longer exclude from revision the staples of our diet.

A Quote by John Burdon Sanderson Haldane on environment, failure, improvement, and success

We do not know, in most cases, how far social failure and success are due to heredity, and how far to environment. But environment is the easier of the two to improve.

A Quote by Jeffrey Shallit on attitude, belief, criticism, environment, freedom, kindness, sacred, and truth

[He] seems to want it both ways: the freedom to hold and express beliefs, and immunity from criticism for those beliefs. This is the kind of attitude that leads inexorably to totalitarianism. It is to be decried, particularly in a university environment where the search for truth necessitates that no belief be treated as sacred or above scrutiny.

A Quote by Jean Michel Chapereau on environment and selfishness

They smell, they snarl and they scratch; they have a singular aptitude for shredding rugs, drapes and upholstery; they're sneaky, selfish and not at all smart; they are disloyal, condescending and totally useless in any rodent free environment.

A Quote by James Allen on authors, circumstances, environment, and thought

Circumstance does not make the man; it reveals him to himself. Man, therefore, as the lord and master of thought, is the maker of himself, the shaper and author of environment.

A Quote by James Allen on control, desires, environment, idealism, present, and vision

Whatever your present environment may be, you will fall, remain, or rise with your thoughts, your Vision, your Ideal. You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration.

A Quote by James Allen on beauty, environment, heart, idealism, mind, music, vision, and world

Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.

James Allen (1864 - 1912)
