future

A Quote by Antoine R. Ivins on belief, difficulty, effort, faith, future, god, nature, needs, optimism, order, pessimism, purpose, time, and work

This is a time when we need faith, faith of a very definite and positive nature, the faith that will lead us to optimism. I believe that pessimism grows out of a lack of faith, and that if we have the right type of faith, we will be optimistic about the future. It may be true that the immediate future may have difficulties for us, but I feel that out of it all will grow a realization of the purposes of God. And it should be our purpose to develop and maintain in our hearts, if we can, faith in God and in the ultimate consummation of his purposes - a faith that will unite us in a solid, coherent group. We must, of course, in order to do that, develop faith in each other. Without that faith we are not likely to go far in promoting the work of the Lord. If we could properly unite our efforts, all of our temporal difficulties could be overcome, I am sure. If and when we overcome, it will be only because we unite in our purpose through faith in each other.

A Quote by Ann Landers on compromise, confidence, contentment, day, friendship, future, goals, good, hope, life, love, past, perfection, problems, quiet, sharing, present, and understanding

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyaltly through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. Love is content with the present, it hopes for the future, and it does not brood over the past. It's the day-in and day-out chronicle of irritations, problems, compromises, small disappointments, big victories and working toward common goals. If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things that are missing. If you don't have love in your life, no matter what else there is, it's not enough.

Ann Landers (1918 -)

A Quote by André Gide on action, decisions, future, and life

The most decisive actions of our life - I mean those that are most likely to decide the whole course of our future - are, more often than not, unconsidered.

A Quote by Amrom Katz on future, imperfection, novelty, past, reading, and present

Try to find the real tense of the report you are reading: Was it done, is it being done, or is something to be done? Reports are now written in four tenses: past tense, present tense, future tense, and pretense. Watch for novel uses of CONGRAM (CONtractor GRAMmer), defined by the past imperfect, the present insufficient, and the future absolutely perfect.

A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on acquaintance, dreams, eternity, future, knowledge, and past

PAST, n. That part of Eternity with some small fraction of which we have a slight and regrettable acquaintance. [T]he Past is the Future of yesterday, the Future is the Past of to-morrow. They are one - the knowledge and the dream.
