A Quote by Yevgeny Aleksandrovich Yevtushenko on body, fatigue, fear, mind, nature, and sports

True sport is always a duel, a duel with nature, with one's own fear, with one's own fatigue, a duel in which the body and the mind are strengthened.

Yevgeny Yevtushenko (1933 -)

A Quote by Thomas Paine on blessings, fatigue, freedom, and men

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.

A Quote by Thomas Carlyle on fatigue, harmony, music, silence, time, and work

Give us, O give us the man who sings at his work! Be his occupation what it may, he is equal to any of those who follow the same pursuit in silent sullenness. He will do more in the same time . . . he will do it better . . . he will persevere longer. One is scarcely sensible to fatigue while he marches to music. The very stars are said to make harmony as they revolve in their spheres.

Thomas Carlyle (1795 - 1881)

A Quote by Robert James McCracken, D.D. on brevity, cities, day, difficulty, fatigue, life, quiet, suffering, trying, and worth

It is an experiment worth trying to be alone and to be quiet for a brief period every day. Under city conditions it may be difficult to carry out, but most of us could do it if we tried. At any rate, we should moderate the pace at which we are living. If we remain at high gear, at top pressure, we are bound to suffer from fatigue and strain.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on danger, fatigue, good, management, risk, soul, temptation, thought, and time

Time Management Tips: The perpetual processing of the same temptation is both dangerous and time-wasting. Cycling and recycling the same temptation (instead of rejecting such blandishment out of hand) is not only to risk one's soul, again and again, but is to bring on fatigue, so that the Adversary may be able to do indirectly what we will not let him do directly. A lack of decisiveness in dealing with temptation ties up our thought processes and prevents us from doing good with the time allotted to us.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on fatigue and people

When at length we tire of putting people down, this self-inflicted fatigue can give way to the invigorating calisthenics of lifting people up.

A Quote by John Ruskin on effort, failure, fatigue, rest, and time

It is eminently a weariable faculty, eminently delicate, and incapable of bearing fatigue; so that if we give it too many objects at a time to employ itself upon, or very grand ones for a long time together, it fails under the effort, becomes jaded, exactly as the limbs do by bodily fatigue, and incapable of answering any farther appeal till it has had rest.

John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

A Quote by Henry Matisse on art, balance, depression, dreams, fatigue, good, influence, mind, purity, relaxation, and serenity

What I dream is an art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling and depressing subject matter...a shooting, calming influence on the mind, something like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.

A Quote by Frederick Law Olmstead on action, beauty, body, economics, exercise, fatigue, influence, mind, and rest

If we analyze the operations of scenes of beauty upon the mind, and consider the intimate relation of the mind upon the nervous system and the whole physical economy, the action and reaction which constantly occur between bodily and mental conditions, the reinvigoration which results from such scenes is readily comprehended. . . . The enjoyment of scenery employs the mind without fatigue and yet exercises it; tranquilizes it and yet enlivens it; and thus, through the influence of the mind over the body gives the effect of refreshing rest and reinvigoration to the whole system.
