force

A Quote by Matthew Good on matt, matt good, matthew good, entiry, silence, silent, wonder, force, patient, lesson, teach, grasp, and immense

...there is something larger that’s looming out there. A force that remains patient and silent. An entity that waits to teach a lesson that we have yet to grasp. It is much better to just lie there and let it roll over you like some immense army of unquestionable wonder.

A Quote by Deepak Chopra on higher, plane, possibility, force, effort, sacrifice, ideas, changing, and normal

The possibility of stepping into a higher plane
is quite real for everyone. It requires no force
or effort or sacrifice. It involves little more than
changing our ideas about what is normal.

A Quote by unknown on trust, faith, belief, vision, universe, and force

To trust in the force
that moves the universe is faith
Faith isn't blind, it's visionary.
Faith is believing that the universe
is on our side, and that the universe
knows what it's doing.

A Quote by Suzanne Segal on awareness, consciousness, force, collision with the infinite, beyond self, no self, self realization, julie sarah powell, and bernadette roberts

 

I lifted my right foot to step up into the bus and collided head on with an invisible force that entered my awareness like a silently exploding stick of dynamite blowing the door of my usual consciousness open and off its hinges, splitting me in two. In the gaping space that appeared, what I had previously called "me" was forcefully pushed out of its usual location inside me into a new location that was approximately a foot behind and to the left of my head. "I" was now behind my body, looking out at the world without using the body's eyes.

A Quote by George Washington on government, force, coercion, freedom, and liberty

Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.

George Washington (1732 - 1799)

A Quote by Mark Skousen on free society, responsibility, liberty, freedom, persuasion, and force

In short, my vision of a responsible free society is one in which we discourage evil, but do not prohibit it. We make our children and students aware of the consequences of drug abuse and other forms of irresponsible behavior. But after all our persuading, if they still want to use harmful drugs, that is their privilege. In a free society, individuals must have the right to do right or wrong, as long as they don't threaten or infringe upon the rights or property of others. They must also suffer the consequences of their actions, as it is from consequences that they learn to choose properly

A Quote by Ken Schoolland on free society, force, coercion, freedom, liberty, slavery, property, theft, and government

At times some people use force or fraud to take from others without willful, voluntary consent. Normally, the initiation of force to take life is murder, to take liberty is slavery, and to take property is theft. It is the same whether these actions are done by one person acting alone, by the many acting against a few, or even by officials with fine hats and titles.

A Quote by Ken Schoolland on free society, force, coercion, freedom, and liberty

Having confidence in a free society is to focus on the process of discovery in the marketplace of values rather than to focus on some imposed vision or goal. Using governmental force to impose a vision on others is intellectual sloth and typically results in unintended, perverse consequences. Achieving the free society requires courage to think, to talk, and to act -- especially when it is easier to do nothing.

A Quote by Vernon Howard on everyone, existence, wise, challenge, investigate, trouble, people, deliver, force, entity, power, higher, and nature

Everyone must concede that there is in existence something wiser than himself. Now there is a challenge, there is a challenge which few even investigate. We're going to do that now. Let's see what we're talking about. All troubled people, which is all people, must if they are going to be delivered from themselves, must make the concession that there is a force, an entity, a power that is higher than their own present nature.
