A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on expectation and work

Your expectation opens or closes the doors of your supply. If you expect grand things, and work honestly for them, they will come to you, your supply will correspond with your expectation.

A Quote by Milton Friedman on adoption, change, crisis, expectation, exploring, goals, idealism, judgment, radicals, reason, and worth

. . . it is worth discussing radical changes, not in the expectation that they will be adopted promptly but for two other reasons. One is to construct an ideal goal, so that incremental changes can be judged by whether they move the institutional structure toward or away from that ideal. The other reason is very different. It is so that if a crisis requiring or facilitating radical change does arise, alternatives will be available that have been carefully developed and fully explored.

A Quote by Marina Schinz on effort, expectation, future, garden, guidance, heart, hope, improvement, modesty, nature, paradise, vision, and world

To create a garden is to search for a better world. In our effort to improve on nature, we are guided by a vision of paradise. Whether the result is a horticultural masterpiece or only a modest vegetable patch, it is based on the expectation of a glorious future. This hope for the future is at the heart of all gardening.

A Quote by Marilyn vos Savant on desires, expectation, gratitude, love, and time

It is a lot easier to prove that you don't love someone than it is to prove that you do, but one of the best 'proofs' I know is the desire to devote time to the person with no expectation of any sort of compensation, including gratitude, in return.

A Quote by Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach on beginning, contempt, expectation, good, power, and questions

"Can any good come out of Nazareth?" This is always the question of the wiseacres and the knowing ones. But the good, the new, comes from exactly that quarter whence it is not looked for, and is always different from what was expected. Everything new is received with contempt-for it begins in obscurity. It becomes a power unobserved.

Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach (1804 - 1872)
