A Quote by Milton R. Hunter on eternity, gifts, god, hope, life, wisdom, work, and world

. . . Eternal life is the most important thing in all the world for which you and I should work and hope someday to attain. . . . the person who attains eternal life is exceedingly rich. Seek not for riches but for wisdom. . . . . . . he that hath eternal life is rich. Eternal life is the greatest of all of the gifts of God.

A Quote by Milton R. Hunter on adultery, crime, evil, facts, gifts, god, jesus, laughter, love, lust, money, murder, observation, sorrow, and world

You know, I have never read in the scriptures where Jesus said, "For, behold, a million dollars is the greatest gift of God." I observe by your smiles and laughter that you haven't either. Nor have I read wherein the Savior said, "He who hath a million dollars is rich indeed." It does not sound like scripture. I did read in the scriptures that the love for money or the lust for money is the root of all evil, and that certainly is very true. Covetousness for money is evil and the final end is sorrow. In fact, covetousness in all its forms is the basis of all sin-adultery, murder, stealing, embezzlement, and all the various types of crime that we find in the world.

A Quote by Miles Davis on ability, certainty, gifts, and play

That was my gift . . . having the ability to put certain guys together that would create a chemistry and then letting them go; letting them play what they knew, and above it.

A Quote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra on earth, gifts, heaven, honor, liberty, and life

Liberty is one of the choicest gifts that heaven hath bestowed upon man, and exceeds in volume all the treasures which the earth contains within its bosom or the sea covers. Liberty, as well as honor, man ought to preserve at the hazard of his life for without it, life is insupportable.

A Quote by Michael Barach on culture, fatherhood, gifts, ideas, punishment, reward, risk, and value

My father's real gift and value to U.S. Shoe is not in 'properly segmenting the market'; rather, he has created a beautiful corporate culture which rewards risk taking, which supports rather than punishes those who have a bad year or two, which allows ideas to percolate upward.

A Quote by Meredith Willson on appreciation, dignity, gifts, justice, kindness, listening, love, motherhood, needs, people, problems, respect, struggle, time, trying, understanding, and vision

Seven gifts my mother gave me: 1. The gift of right: if mamma saw a wrong she righted it. 2. The gift of friendliness: making people happier than they were before 3. The gift of rose-colored vision: mamma liked for the flowers, not the weeds. 4. The gift of fun: mamma gave us the best gift a mother can - her time. 5. The gift of understanding: she was always trying to solve people's problems or at least listen to them. 6. The gift of thoughtfulness: she didn't wait for something special, she just did kind acts any time she saw the need. 7. The gift of respect: when you help to inch your fellow man along on that struggle to dignity, he loves you for it. Seven gifts? I could list seven hundred gifts my mother gave me. Gifts not boxed and ribboned. Not always noticed or even appreciated at the time. But a part of us. Forever.
