expectation

A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on body, courage, death, expectation, friendship, hope, mind, and understanding

Those who know how close the connection is between the state of mind of a man-his courage and hope, or lack of them-and the state of immunity of his body will understand that the sudden loss of hope and courage can have a deadly effect. The ultimate cause of my friend's death was that the expected liberation did not come and he was severely disappointed.

A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on action, expectation, fulfillment, individuality, life, meaning, meditation, problems, and responsibility

It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life - daily and hourly. Our answer must consist, not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual.

A Quote by Vigen Guroian on art, christianity, creation, day, death, earth, expectation, hope, imitation, paradise, and spirit

Let every Christian be a gardener so that he and she and the whole of creation, which groans in expectation of the Spirit's final harvest, may inherit Paradise. If we Christian's truly treasure the hope that one day we, like Adam and the penitent thief, will walk alongside the One who caused even the dead wood of the Cross to blossom with flowers, then we must also imitate the Master's art and make the desolate earth grow green.

A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on attitude, change, despair, expectation, learning, life, and men

What was really needed was a fundamental change in our attitude toward life. We had to learn ourselves and, furthermore, we had to teach the despairing men, that it did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us.

A Quote by unknown on angels, death, earth, expectation, heaven, judgment, surprises, words, and worth

I dreamed death came the other night And Heaven's gate swung wide. A glorious angel soon appeared And ushered me inside. And there to my astonishment Were folks I'd known on earth. Some I'd judged and found unfit And some of little worth. Indignant words rose to my lips But never were set free For every face showed stunned surprise Not one expected me.

A Quote by unknown on angels, disability, expectation, heaven, judgment, surprises, words, and worth

I dreamt of heaven the other night, and the pearly gates swung wide. An angel with halo bright, ushered me inside. And there to my astonishment, stood folks I'd judged & labeled as quite "unfit," of "little worth," and "spiritually disabled." Indignant words rose to my lips, but NEVER were set free, for EVERY face showed stunned surprise, not ONE expected Me!

A Quote by unknown on expectation, stability, and weakness

The Lord gives us a plan to follow. It is outlined in His commandments. And all those commandments are designed to build stability within us. We are not to excuse our failures and weaknesses: We are not to say we are made the way we are, And thereby justify our sins. The Lord expects us to rise above our weakness, become strong, and pattern ourselves after Him.

A Quote by unknown on expectation, planning, projects, and time

Carelessly planned projects take three times longer to complete than expected. Carefully planned projects take four times longer to complete than expected, mostly because the planners expect their planning to reduce the time it takes.

A Quote by unknown on acting, approval, debate, defense, expectation, history, kindness, men, military, service, and time

The signification attributed to the term Militia appears from the debates in the [Constitutional] Convention, the history and legislation of Colonies and States, and the writings of approved commentators. These show plainly enough that the Militia comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense. . . . And further, that ordinarily when called for service these men were expected to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time.
