A Quote by Richard G. Scott on adversity, anguish, challenge, concern, disappointment, fatherhood, frustration, learning, life, pain, peace, promises, rest, and understanding

Don't let the workings of adversity totally absorb your life. Try to understand what you can. Act where you are able; then let the matter rest with the Lord for a period while you give to others in worthy ways before you take on appropriate concern again. Please learn that as you wrestle with a challenge and feel sadness because of it, you can simultaneously have peace and rejoicing. Yes, pain, disappointment, frustration, and anguish can be temporary scenes played out on the stage of life. Behind them can be a background of peace and the positive assurance that a loving Father will keep His promises.

Richard G. Scott (1924 -)

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on frustration, kindness, and worry

I was asked this morning if it was frustrating to be 13-1 last year and not have more recognition and I said, "Hey man, I'd take that every year. I'd take that kind of frustration and not worry about it one bit. It wasn't frustration, it was one of those great runs and I enjoyed it."

A Quote by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. on frustration, laughter, and tears

Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion . . . . I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.

A Quote by Jane Austen on existence, frustration, nonsense, people, senses, sister, and stupidity

In a letter from Bath to her sister, Cassandra, one senses her frustration at her sheltered existence, Tuesday, 12 May 1801. Another stupid party . . . with six people to look on, and talk nonsense to each other.

A Quote by Hugh Prather on fear, frustration, good, indecision, needs, present, and words

Fears, indecision, and frustration feed on words. Without words they usually stop. . . . Words are at times good for looking back, but they are confining when I need to act in the present.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on achievement, death, fraud, frustration, happiness, justice, life, morality, nature, purpose, suffering, and survival

But neither life nor happiness can be achieved by the pursuit of irrational whims. Just as man is free to attempt to survive in any random manner, but will perish unless he lives as his nature requires, so he is free to seek his happiness in any mindless fraud, but the torture of frustration is all he will find, unless he seeks the happiness proper to man. The purpose of morality is to teach you, not to suffer and die, but to enjoy yourself and live.

Ayn Rand (1905 - 1982)
