foolishness

A Quote by Dee W. Hock on ability, foolishness, humility, judgment, perspective, reward, strength, tolerance, trust, weakness, and wisdom

Never hire or promote in your own image. It is foolish to replicate your strength and idiotic to replicate your weakness. It is essential to employ, trust, and reward those whose perspective, ability, and judgment are radically different from yours. It is also rare, for it requires uncommon humility, tolerance, and wisdom.

A Quote by Charles W. Nibley on business, effort, excellence, foolishness, god, labor, progress, success, and yielding

There is no excellence anywhere without labor. We would think a man foolish indeed who would say, "l am willing that my business should prosper, or that my farm should yield plentifully, but I'll not stir a peg." But he is no more foolish than the man who says, "I am willing that God should bless me abundantly, but I shall not do anything toward that end myself." We must consistently rely upon the help of the Lord, but we will not make any progress or meet with any success unless we put forth an earnest effort.

A Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon on danger, experience, foolishness, habits, judgment, and past

It is foolish to try to live on past experience. It is very dangerous, if not a fatal habit, to judge ourselves to be safe because of something that we felt or did twenty years ago.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834 - 1892)
