A Quote by Edward King on desires, faith, feeling, giving, life, mathematics, persuasion, power, and preachers

Nothing anonymous will ever persuade-the faith and conduct of the preacher give life and power to his message. Thus preaching is different from mere feeling. You may teach mathematics or geography without being fully convinced. But in delivering the Gospel message, if it is to be a living life-giving message, there must be in the preacher a sense of message and the desire to deliver it.

A Quote by Edgar Watson "Ed" Howe on giving, history, mankind, revolution, safety, sanity, and work

The history of mankind is one long record of giving revolution another trial - and then limping back at last to sanity, safety and hard work!

A Quote by François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld on giving, goodness, praise, and virtue

Often we exaggerate the goodness of others more for our own virtue in giving praise than for the virtues that we praise: thus we invite commendation by seeming to dispense it.

A Quote by François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld on action, advice, approval, confidence, friendship, giving, interest, reputation, responsibility, sincerity, and zeal

Nothing is less sincere than our mode of asking and giving advice. He who asks seems to have a deference for the opinion of his friend, while he only aims to get approval of his own and make his friend responsible for his action. And he who gives advice repays the confidence supposed to be placed in him by a seemingly disinterested zeal, while he seldom means anything by his advice but his own interest or reputation.

A Quote by Dr. Preston Bradley on bravery, business, failure, faith, giving, good, life, poverty, reward, spirituality, success, victory, and world

The world has a way of giving what is demanded of it. If you are frightened and look for failure and poverty, you will get them, no matter how hard you may try to succeed. Lack of faith in yourself, in what life will do for you, cuts you off from the good things of the world. Expect victory and you make victory. Nowhere is this truer than in business life, where bravery and faith bring both material and spiritual rewards.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on blessings, giving, life, losing, power, religion, and spirituality

[By fasting] we are losing nothing financially; we are blessing ourselves physically; and we are gaining greater spiritual power to withstand the temptations that we meet in life; and, best of all, [in giving to the poor] we are practicing the very essence of our religion.

A Quote by David Hume on arrogance, giving, men, mistakes, passion, and security

When men are the most sure and arrogant they are commonly the most mistaken, giving views to passion without that proper deliberation and suspense which alone can secure them from the grossest absurdities.

A Quote by Daniel Goldman on chance, children, crisis, disease, drugs, giving, life, logic, needs, pregnancy, problems, skill, teenage, trouble, and violence

Over the last decade or so 'wars' have been proclaimed, in turn, on teen pregnancy, dropping out, drugs, and most recently violence. The trouble with such campaigns, though, is that they come too late, after the targeted problem has reached epidemic proportions and taken firm root in the lives of the young. They are crisis intervention, the equivalent of solving a problem by sending an ambulance to the rescue rather than giving an inoculation that would ward off the disease in the first place. Instead of more such 'wars,' what we need is to follow the logic of prevention, offering our children the skills for facing life that will increase their chances of avoiding any and all of these fates.

A Quote by Damien Hess on giving, needs, and service

Service . . . Giving what you don't have to give. Giving when you don't need to give. Giving because you want to give.
