Love is a gift of God, and as we obey His laws and genuinely learn to serve others, we develop God's love in our lives.

A Quote by Clyde Francis Little on appreciation, gifts, gratitude, kindness, motives, questions, and time

There were ten lepers healed, and only one turned back to give thanks, but it is to be noticed that our Lord did not recall His gift from the other nine because of their lack of gratitude. When we begin to lessen our acts of kindness and helpfulness because we think those who receive do not properly appreciate what is done for them, it is time to question our own motives.

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on action, beginning, destruction, effort, gifts, persistence, trying, understanding, and taoism

If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's gift), if you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, if you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, you will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, to know when you can get no further by your own action, this is the right beginning!

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on disorder, earth, gifts, heaven, order, principles, understanding, and taoism

When we look at things in the light of Tao, nothing is best, nothing is worst. Each thing, seen in its own light stands out in its own way. It can seem to be "better" than what is compared with it on its own terms. But seen in terms of the whole, no one thing stands out as "better" ... All creatures have gifts of their own... All things have varying capacities. Consequently he who wants to have right without wrong, order without disorder, does not understand the principles of heaven and earth. He does not know how things hang together. Can a man cling only to heaven and know nothing of earth? They are correlative: to know one is to know the other. To refuse one is to refuse both.

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

A Quote by Charlotte Brontë on creativity and gifts

The writer who possesses the creative gift owns something of which he is not always master - something that, at times, strangely wills and works for itself.

A Quote by Charles Macomb Flandrau on appreciation, day, future, gifts, good, life, pain, past, and truth

The greatest gift . . . is the realization that life does not consist either of wallowing in the past or of peering anxiously at the future; and it is appalling to contemplate the great number of often painful steps by which one arrives at a truth so old, so obvious, and so frequently expressed. It is good for one to appreciate that life is now. Whatever it offers, little or much, life is now-this day-this hour.

A Quote by Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord on failure, gifts, opposites, people, and understanding

There are many people who have the gift, or failing, of never understanding themselves. I have been unlucky enough, or perhaps fortunate enough to have received the opposite gift.

Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord (1754 - 1838)
