A Quote by Epicurus on difficulty, glory, and reputation

The greater difficulty, the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.

Epicurus (c. 341 - c. 270 BC)

A Quote by ElRay L. Christiansen on blessings, death, eternity, fatherhood, gifts, glory, guidance, honor, indifference, laws, life, mercy, merit, salvation, and time

So this estate is given each of us to determine whether or not we will merit glory and honor "for ever and ever," or whether we will rebel and refuse or be indifferent and not comply with the conditions and the laws and the ordinances provided by a merciful Father for our guidance through life and our protection and our salvation and thereby, by so doing, deny ourselves the fabulous gift and blessing of eternal life. This life, then, is a time of "sifting," a time when the "wheat" is separated from the "chaff," a time of deciding who is who and where we will live after we die.

A Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox on blessings, day, fame, glory, and heart

Better than glory, or honors, or fame, (Though I am striving for those to-day) To know that some heart will cherish my name, And think of me kindly, with blessings, alway.

A Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning on brothers, darkness, earth, glory, god, gold, good, heaven, kiss, life, love, and secrets

They say that God lives very high! But if you look above the pines You cannot see our God. And why? And if you dig down in the mines You never see Him in the gold, Though from Him all that's glory shines. God is so good, He wears a fold Of heaven and earth across His face - Like secrets kept, for love, untold. But still I feel that His embrace Slides down by thrills, through all things made, Through sight and sound of every place: As if my tender brother laid On my shut lids, her kisses' pressure, Half waking me at night; and said, "Who kissed through the dark, dear guesser?"

A Quote by Edwin Percy Whipple on glory, good, joy, labor, and reward

In activity we must find our joy as well as glory; and labor, like everything else that is good, is its own reward

A Quote by Charles Edwin Markham on beauty, defeat, glory, grief, heart, joy, soul, and victory

Defeat may serve as well as victory To shake the soul and let the glory out. When the great oak is straining in the wind, The boughs drink in new beauty and the trunk Sends down a deeper root on the windward side. Only the soul that knows the mighty grief Can know the mighty rapture, Sorrows come To stretch out spaces in the heart for joy.

A Quote by Charles Edwin Markham on beginning, certainty, choice, glory, god, life, loneliness, rest, spirit, tears, tragedy, and vision

When in the dim beginning of the years, God mixed in man the raptures and the tears, And scattered through his brain that starry stuff, He said: "Behold! Yet this is not enough; For I must test his spirit to make sure That he can dare the vision and endure. I will withdraw my face, Veil me in shadow for a certain space, Leaving behind me only a broken clue- A crevice where the glory glimmers through, Some whisper from the sky, Some footprint in the road to track me by. I will leave man to make the fateful guess, To leave him torn between the no and yes, Leave him unresting 'til he rest in me, Drawn upward by the choice that makes him free- Leave him in tragic loneliness to choose, With all in life to win or to lose.

Edwin Markham (1852 - 1940)

A Quote by Edward Everett Hale on america, children, country, eternity, generations, glory, good, gratitude, humility, life, love, memory, nobility, peace, simplicity, and work

No gilded dome swells from the lowly roof to catch the morning or evening beam; but the love and gratitude of united America settle upon it in one eternal sunshine. From beneath that humble roof went forth the intrepid and unselfish warrior, the magistrate who knew no glory but his country's good; to that he returned, happiest when his work was done. There he lived in noble simplicity, there he died in glory and peace. While it stands, the latest generations of the grateful children of America will make this pilgrimage to it as to a shrine; and when it shall fall, if fall it must, the memory and the name of Washington shall shed an eternal glory on the spot.

Edward Everett Hale (1794 - 1865)

A Quote by Edith Daly on earth, glory, god, miracles, and proof

We muse on miracles who look But lightly on a rose! Who gives it fragrance or the glint Of glory that it shows? Who hold it here between the sky And earth's rain-softened sod? The miracle of one pale rose Is proof enough of God!
