A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on circumstances, crisis, economics, future, learning, needs, preparation, principles, reason, self-reliance, spirituality, unemployment, and welfare

More than ever before, we need to learn and apply the principles of economic self-reliance. We do not know when the crisis involving sickness or unemployment may affect our own circumstances. We do know that the Lord has decreed global calamities for the future and has warned and forewarned us to be prepared. For this reason the Brethren have repeatedly stressed a 'back to basics' program for temporal and spiritual welfare.

Ezra Taft Benson (1899 - 1994)

A Quote by Evelyn Underhill on conflict, conviction, death, difficulty, future, ideas, interest, life, needs, possessions, practicality, rules, soul, spirit, spirituality, success, trying, and worry

Most of our conflicts and difficulties come from trying to deal with the spiritual and practical aspects of our life separately instead of realizing them as parts of one whole. If our practical life is centered on our own interests, cluttered up by possessions, distracted by ambitions, passions, wants and worries, beset by a sense of our own rights and importance, or anxieties for our own future, or longings for our own success, we need not expect that our spiritual life will be a contrast to all this. The soul's house is not built on such a convenient plan; there are few soundproof partitions in it. Only when the conviction - not merely the idea - that the demand of the Spirit, however inconvenient, rules the whole of it, will those objectionable noises die down which have a way of penetrating into the nicely furnished little oratory and drowning all the quieter voices by their din.

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.

A Quote by Eric Hoffer on certainty, change, future, paradox, present, and time

It is a paradox that in our time of drastic rapid change, when the future is in our midst devouring the present before our eyes, we have never been less certain about what is ahead of us.

A Quote by Eric Hoffer on change, existence, future, learning, time, and world

In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.

A Quote by Eric Dransfeldt on despair, fate, future, humility, life, salvation, soul, and universe

Life is but an unfair circle, intertwined among the ruins of my salvation as a soul of this universe. My humble despair deserves no such fate; perhaps sometime in the near distant future I may live to say 'this really sucks!'"
