A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on fulfillment, heart, language, life, meaning, and words

Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart.

A Quote by Luther Burbank on blessings, children, evolution, fulfillment, god, happiness, health, humanity, intelligence, life, love, nature, observation, plants, principles, progress, simplicity, and world

I see humanity now as one vast plant, needing for its highest fulfillment only love, the natural blessings of the great outdoors, and intelligent crossing and selection. In the span of my own lifetime I observed such wondrous progress in plant evolution that I look forward optimistically to a healthy, happy world as soon as its children are taught the principles of simple and rational living. We must return to nature and nature's god.

A Quote by Leo Calvin Rosten on fate, fulfillment, god, happiness, life, luck, nobility, purpose, and talent

The purpose of life is to matter, to be productive, to have it make some difference that you lived at all. Happiness, in the ancient, noble sense, means self-fulfillment-and is given to those who use to the fullest whatever talents God or luck or fate bestowed upon them.

A Quote by Jose Ortega y Gasset on dedication, emptiness, fulfillment, life, and nature

Life means to have something definite to do--a mission to fulfill--and in the measure in which we avoid setting our life to something, we make it empty. Human life, by its very nature, has to be dedicated to something.

A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on divinity, emotion, emptiness, fulfillment, ideas, liberals, love, men, and people

Whenever I hear people talking about liberal ideas, I am always astounded that men should love to fool themselves with empty sounds. An idea should never be liberal; it must be vigorous, positive, and without loose ends so that it may fulfill its divine mission and be productive. The proper place for liberality is in the realm of the emotions.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)
