A Quote by Erich Fromm on belief, fulfillment, future, idealism, past, purpose, and solution

As long as anyone believes that his ideal and purpose is outside him, that it is above the clouds, in the past or in the future, he will go outside himself and seek fulfillment where it cannot be found. He will look for solutions and answers at every point except where they can be found- in himself.

Erich Fromm (1900 - 1980)

A Quote by E.F. Schumacher on attitude, environment, fulfillment, life, principles, wealth, and world

An attitude to life which seeks fulfillment in the single-minded pursuit of wealth - in short, materialism - does not fit into this world, because it contains within itself no limiting principle, while the environment in which it is placed is strictly limited.

E.F. Schumacher (1911 - 1977)

A Quote by Douglas L. Edmonds on achievement, action, community, deed, democracy, duty, faith, fulfillment, goals, good, government, individuality, intelligence, loyalty, opportunity, principles, problems, and solution

How many of us are waiting for the opportunity to do some great thing for the betterment of our community, forgetting that the solution of the problem requires only the active intelligent, fulfillment of individual civic duty. The only things which are wrong about our Government are the things which are wrong with you and me. Democracy is never a thing done; it is and always will be a goal to be achieved. It means action, not passive acquiescence in things as they are; it requires alertness to duty, a dynamic faith, a willingness to give for the good of all. It can live only as a result of loyalty and devotion to its principles expressed by daily deeds.

A Quote by Dean Alfrange on challenge, citizenship, dignity, dreams, existence, failure, freedom, fulfillment, life, opportunity, risk, security, success, trade, wishes, and world

It is my right to be uncommon . . . if I can; I seek opportunity . . . not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stole calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud, and unafraid; to think and act for myself; enjoy the benefits of my creations and to face the world boldly and say, 'This I have done, and this is what it means to be an American.'

A Quote by Daniel H. Wells on fulfillment, god, good, spirit, and spirituality

We cannot fulfill our engagements with the Almighty without we have that Spirit with us. We should so live as to acknowledge the Good Spirit continually. We cannot do this unless we let the Spirit of God rule in temporalities as well as in spiritual matter.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on fulfillment, individuality, laziness, and timidity

It is the individual's task to differentiate himself from all the others and stand on his own feet. All collective identities . . . interfere with the fulfillment of this task. Such collective identities are crutches for the lame, shields for the timid, beds for the lazy, nurseries for the irresponsible. . . .

Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)
