A Quote by Sterling W. Sill on eternity, glory, happiness, immortality, life, love, machines, perception, personality, personality, reason, senses, soul, and understanding

The greatest of all our human concepts is the immortality of the personality and the eternal glory of the human soul. Throughout eternity you will be yourself and I will be myself, with quickened senses amplified powers of perception, and vastly increased capacity for reason, understanding, love, and happiness, all of which are qualities we may develop now. Our machines wear out, our barns fall down, and our substance goes back to the dust, but our finest collection of personal qualities will have eternal life.

Sterling W. Sill (1903 - 1994)

A Quote by St. François de Sales on arrogance, danger, desires, disobedience, evil, extremism, friendship, glory, god, liberals, people, simplicity, slander, vices, wishes, and zeal

While extremely sensitive as to the slightest approach to slander, you must also guard against an extreme into which some people fall, who, in their desire to speak evil of no one, actually uphold and speak well of vice. If you have to do with one who is unquestionably a slanderer, do not excuse him by calling him frank and free-spoken; do not call one who is notoriously vain, liberal and elegant; do not call dangerous levities mere simplicity; do not screen disobedience under the name of zeal; or arrogance, of frankness; or evil intimacy, of friendship. No, my friends, we must never, in our wish to shun slander, foster or flatter vice in others: but we must call evil evil, and sin sin, and so doing we shall serve God's glory.

St. Francois de Sales (1567 - 1622)

A Quote by Sogyal Rinpoche on absence, bliss, clarity, egotism, experience, fear, freedom, generosity, glory, home, hope, lies, life, meditation, peace, and wisdom

The real glory of meditation lies not in any method but in its continual living experience of presence, in its bliss, clarity, peace, and most important of all, complete absence of grasping. The diminishing of grasping in yourself is a sign that you are becoming freer of yourself. And the more you experience this freedom, the clearer the sign that the ego and the hopes and fears that keep it alive are dissolving, and the closer you will come to the infinitely generous "wisdom of egolessness." When you live in the wisdom home, you'll no longer find a barrier between "I" and "you," "this" and "that," "inside" and "outside;" you'll have come, finally, to your true home, the state of non-duality.

A Quote by Sir Walter Ralegh on diet, faith, glory, hope, immortality, joy, quiet, and salvation

Give my scallop-shell of quiet, My staff of faith to walk upon, My scrip of joy, immortal diet, My bottle of salvation, My gown of glory, hope's true gage; And thus I'll take my pilgrimage.

A Quote by Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton on glory, success, wealth, and wisdom

The road to success is not to be run upon by seven-leagued boots. Step by step, little by little, bit by bit-that is the way to wealth, that is the way to wisdom, that is the way to glory.

A Quote by Rudyard Kipling on garden, glory, god, and work

Oh, Adam was a gardener, and God who made him sees That half a proper gardener's work is done upon his knees, So when your work is finished, you can wash your hands and pray For the Glory of the Garden, that it may not pass away!

A Quote by Rudyard Kipling on garden, glory, jobs, thankfulness, and work

Then seek your job with thankfulness and work till further orders, If it's only netting strawberries or killing slugs on borders; And when your back stops aching and your hands begin to harden, You will find yourself a partner in the Glory of the Garden.
