giving

A Quote by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche on compassion, giving, sun, and riches

From the Sun I learned this: when he goes down, overrich; he pours gold into the sea out of inexhaustible riches, so that even the poorest fisherman still rows with golden oars. For this I once saw and I did not tire of my tears as I watched it.

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on babies, buddhism, compassion, feeling, giving, heart, jesus, kindness, mind, plants, and sacred

Feelings, whether of compassion or irritation, should be welcomed, recognized, and treated on an absolutely equal basis; because both are ourselves. The tangerine I am eating is me. The mustard greens I am planting are me. I plant with all my heart and mind. I clean this teapot with the kind of attention I would have were I giving the baby Buddha or Jesus a bath. Nothing should be treated more carefully than anything else. In mindfulness, compassion, irritation, mustard green plant, and teapot are all sacred.

A Quote by M. Scott Peck on behavior, giving, journeys, life, personality, personality, and travel

The giving up of personality traits, well-established patterns of behavior, ideologies, and even whole life styles...these are major forms of giving up that are required if one is to travel very far on the journey of life.

A Quote by William C. Menninger on absence, anxiety, creativity, experience, fear, freedom, giving, learning, maturity, profit, reality, satisfaction, and serenity

In positive terms, we can state that psychological maturity entails finding greater satisfaction in giving than in receiving; having a capacity to form satisfying and permanent loyalties; being primarily a creative, contributing person; having learned to profit from experience; having a freedom from fear (anxiety) with a resulting true serenity and not a pseudo absence of tension; and accepting and making the most of unchangeable reality when it confronts one.

A Quote by William Arthur Ward on day, giving, goodness, greatness, judgment, life, and simplicity

Each of will one day be judged By our standard of life, Not by our standard of living; By our measure of giving, Not by our measure of wealth; By our simple goodness, Not by our seeming greatness.

William Arthur Ward

A Quote by Wanda Loveridge on bitterness, children, decisions, devil, giving, heaven, knowledge, laughter, learning, men, and quiet

PREDICTION If I chose Not to bear this child That in me grows, Giving in To the well-respected And learned Philosophies of men, There would be No crash of thunder At my decision; No lightning burst Or loud, condemning voice From heaven, Only bitter knowledge Forever after And the quiet, pleased sound Of Satan's laughter.

A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on attitude, camping, circumstances, freedom, giving, life, and proof

We who lived in concentration camps can remember those who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a person but the last of the human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances - to choose one's own way.
