A Quote by Clive Staples (Jack) Lewis on ability, education, exercise, family, friendship, god, government, liberty, love, security, talent, and worship

The chief end of man, as I see it, is to find security, have liberty to express his abilities, enjoy the love of family and friends, and to secure recognition of his talents, to worship God in his own way, and to participate in a government that will protect him in his exercise of these liberties, and by education and training in the development of the arts and sciences, and the techniques of their application, help him to find his proper place in the scheme of things.

A Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on change, exercise, expectation, god, men, miracles, necessity, power, silence, and wonder

If Spring came but once in a century, instead of once a year, or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake, and not in silence, what wonder and expectation there would be in all hearts to behold the miraculous change! But now the silent succession suggests nothing but necessity. To most men only the cessation of the miracle would be miraculous and the perpetual exercise of God's power seems less wonderful than its withdrawal would be.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)

A Quote by Henry R. Luce on business, exercise, and future

Business more than any other occupation is a continual dealing with the future; it is a continual calculation, an instinctive exercise in foresight.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on behavior, biography, discovery, ethics, exercise, facts, idleness, interest, laws, learning, life, mathematics, mind, physics, rest, science, study, and sympathy

He is not a true man of science who does not bring some sympathy to his studies, and expect to learn something by behavior as well as by application. It is childish to rest in the discovery of mere coincidences, or of partial and extraneous laws. The study of geometry is a petty and idle exercise of the mind, if it is applied to no larger system than the starry one. Mathematics should be mixed not only with physics but with ethics; that is mixed mathematics. The fact which interests us most is the life of the naturalist. The purest science is still biographical.

A Quote by Henry B. Eyring on beginning, blessings, books, exercise, experience, faith, gifts, god, gratitude, inspiration, language, memory, mind, prayer, privacy, spirit, and time

You could have an experience with the gift of the Holy Ghost today. You could begin a private prayer with thanks. You could start to count your blessings, and then pause for a moment. If you exercise faith, and with the gift of the Holy Ghost, you will find that memories of other blessings will flood into your mind. If you begin to express gratitude for each of them, your prayer may take a little longer than usual. Remembrance will come. And so will gratitude. You could try the same thing as you write an entry in your book of remembrance. The Holy Ghost has helped with that since the beginning of time. You remember in the record of Moses it says: "And a book of remembrance was kept, in the which was recorded, in the language of Adam, for it was given unto as many as called upon God to write by the spirit of inspiration." (Moses 6:5.)

A Quote by Harvey S. Firestone on circumstances, control, exercise, judgment, and opportunity

A man with a surplus can control circumstances, but a man without a surplus is controlled by them, and often he has no opportunity to exercise judgment.

A Quote by Grant Von Harrison on body, church, exercise, faith, gifts, life, mind, and spirit

The gifts of the spirit are at your disposal to assist you in all aspects of your life if you seek them. For example, there will be times in you life when you will be required to put in long hours in connection with your employment and/or your Church assignments. You are entitled to a gift of the spirit which will result in the literal renewal of your body. The Lord has promised that if you exercise faith and request it, you "shall not be weary in mind . . . neither in body, limb, nor joint." (D&C 84:80.)

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 Grant Von Harrison on determination, exercise, failure, faith, fatherhood, goals, heaven, motivation, opportunity, power, and principles

When you set goals that cannot be attained or realized without the Lord's help, you should consistently remind yourself of the process of faith that is required to call down the powers of heaven. You will become frustrated if you set goals that require assistance from the powers of heaven to be realized and then fail to exercise the necessary faith that will allow your Father in Heaven the opportunity to assist you in attaining your particular goal. It is extremely important that you are conscious of the role of faith as a principle of power in the attainment of some goals. The faith that motivates you to have determination will make it possible to realize some goals, but faith as a principle of power is the key to achieving many other goals.
