A Quote by James Franklin Bell on business, control, darkness, distrust, fulfillment, honesty, honor, necessity, trust, virtue, and world

Aside from the strictly moral standpoint, honesty is - not only the best policy, but the only possible policy from the standpoint of business relations. The fulfillment of the pledged word is of equal necessity to the conduct of all business. If we expect and demand virtue and honor in others, the flame of both must burn brightly within ourselves and shed their light to illuminate the erstwhile dark corners of distrust and dishonesty. . . . The truthful answer rests for the most part within ourselves, for like begets like. Honesty begets honesty; trust, trust; and so on through the whole category of desirable practices that must govern and control the world's affairs.

A Quote by James Baldwin on fulfillment, god, prophets, slavery, songs, time, and water

If we do not now dare everything, the fulfillment of that prophecy, re-created from the Bible in song by a slave, is upon us: God gave Noah the rainbow sign. No more water, fire next time.

A Quote by J. B. Phillips on accidents, christ, christianity, disease, failure, fulfillment, god, heart, purpose, questions, study, understanding, war, and world

From the crude cry which we have so often heard during the war years: "If there is a God, why doesn't He stop Hitler?," to the unspoken questioning in many a Christian heart when a devoted servant of Christ dies from accident or disease at what seems to us a most inopportune moment, there is this universal longing for God to intervene, to show His hand, to vindicate His purpose. I do not pretend to understand the ways of God any more than the next man; but it is surely more fitting as well as more sensible for us to study what God does do and what He does not do as He works in and through the complex fabric of this disintegrated world, than to postulate what we think God ought to do and then feel demoralized and bitterly disappointed because He fails to fulfill what we expect of Him.

A Quote by Ahmad Ibn `Ata'Allah on fulfillment, god, reward, and virtue

God Most High has said, "Is the reward of virtue aught save virtue?" . . . Know, O man, that the covenant of servanthood is incumbent upon you, and that the covenant of Lordship is incumbent upon His magnanimity, as He Most High has said, ". . . and fulfill your covenant, I shall fulfill My covenant."

A Quote by Herbert Ernest Bates on control, fulfillment, ideas, life, purpose, wishes, and world

He who wishes to fulfill his mission in the world must be a man of one idea, that is, of one great overmastering purpose, overshadowing all his aims, and guiding and controlling his entire life.

People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost.

A Quote by Gertrude Jekyll on beauty, fulfillment, promises, and time

What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.
