goodwill

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on belief, day, god, goodwill, mankind, nonviolence, and war

I still believe that one day mankind will bow before the altars of God and be crowned triumphant over war and bloodshed, and nonviolent redemptive goodwill will proclaim the rule of the land.

A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on birth, change, christ, christmas, darkness, death, disease, failure, gold, good, goodwill, grief, happiness, heart, joy, laws, life, love, lust, mankind, manners, mind, pain, peace, pride, slander, sorrow, spirit, time

Christmas and New Year Bells The time draws near the birth of Christ: The moon is hid; the night is still; The Christmas bells from hill to hill Answer each other in the mist. Four voices of four hamlets round, From far and near, on mead and moor, Swell out and fail, as if a door Were shut between me and the sound: Each voice four changes on the wind, That now dilate, and now decrease, Peace and goodwill, goodwill and peace, Peace and goodwill, to all mankind. This year I slept and woke with pain I almost wish'd no more to wake, And that my hold on life would break Before I heard those bells again: But they the troubled spirit rule, For they controll'd me when a boy; They bring me sorrow touch'd with joy, The merry, merry bells of Yule. Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky, The flying cloud, the frosty light: The year is dying in the night; Ring out, wild bells, and let him die. Ring out the old, ring in the new, Ring, happy bells, across the snow: The year is going, let him go; Ring out the false, ring in the true. Ring out the grief that saps the mind, For those that here we see no more; Ring out the feud of rich and poor, Ring in redress to all mankind. Ring out a slowly dying cause, And ancient forms of party strife; Ring in the nobler modes of life, With sweeter manners, purer laws. Ring out the want, the care, the sin, The faithless coldness of the times; Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes, But ring the fuller minstrel in. Ring out false pride in place and blood, The civic slander and the spite; Ring in the love of truth and right, Ring in the common love of good. Ring out old shapes of foul disease, Ring out the narrowing lust of gold; Ring out the thousand wars of old Ring in the thousand years of peace. Ring in the valiant man and free, The larger heart, the kindlier hand; Ring out the darkness of the land, Ring in the Christ that is to be.

Lord Alfred Tennyson (1809 - 1892)

A Quote by Lee Vaughn Barker, D.D. on aggression, belief, difficulty, goodwill, men, people, time, understanding, and world

If we understand that the Lord has given us a doctrine of wholehearted, aggressive goodwill, even toward unfriendly people, we can save our world, even at a time when it was never more difficult to believe in ourselves and our fellow-men.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on acceptance, awareness, circumstances, direction, falsehood, goodwill, illusions, leadership, perception, spontaneity, truth, virtue, taoism, and path

{There are two paths leading to oneness with the Tao.} The first in the path of acceptance. Affirm everyone and everything. Freely extend you goodwill and virtue in every direction, regardless of circumstances. Embrace all things as part of the Harmonious Oneness, and then you will begin to perceive it. The second path is that of denial. Recognize that everything you see and think is a falsehood, an illusion, a veil over the truth. Peel all the veils away, and you will arrive at the Oneness. Though these paths are entirely different, they will deliver you to the same place: spontaneous awareness of the Great Oneness.

A Quote by John Adams on dependence, dignity, extremism, god, goodwill, happiness, heaven, honor, ignorance, interest, liberty, nature, nobility, peace, politics, poverty, religion, slavery, and trust

Let the pulpit resound with the doctrines and sentiments of religious liberty. Let us hear the dangers of thralldom to our consciences from ignorance, extreme poverty, and dependence; in short, from civil and political slavery. Let us see delineated before us the true map of man. Let us hear the dignity of his nature, and the noble rank he holds among the works of God-that consenting to slavery is a sacrilegious breach of trust, as offensive in the sight of God as it is derogatory from our own honor or interest or happiness-and that God Almighty has promulgated from heaven liberty, peace, and goodwill to man!

A Quote by Jerome Frank on democracy, dictatorship, goodwill, government, intelligence, interest, men, needs, promises, and elightenment

We want no dictatorship of physicists, as physicists. If our democracy is to realize its full promise, we want no dictatorship at all - of any species. What we want and need is the enlightened and active interest of all men of intelligence and goodwill in their government, and their participation in its functions.

A Quote by Ian on direction, goodwill, and songs

Give us Direction; the best of goodwill; Put us in touch with fair winds. Sing to us softly, hum the evening's song- Tell us what the blacksmith has done for you.

A Quote by Howard W. Hintz. DD on brothers, clarity, community, direction, family, goodwill, honesty, individuality, integrity, intelligence, nations, progress, sincerity, spirit, thinking, tolerance, understanding, and world

If we want more brotherhood and goodwill, more intelligence, more clear thinking, more honesty and sincerity, more tolerance and human understanding we must concentrate upon cultivating these qualities within ourselves. There is a natural progression in social advancement from the individual spirit to the family, to the community, to the nation and to the world at large. The line of progress can move in no other direction. There is no substitute for personal integrity.

A Quote by George Matthew Adams on character, deed, goodwill, kindness, memory, understanding, and worth

It's what each of us sows, and how, that gives to us character and prestige. Seeds of kindness, goodwill, and human understanding, planted in fertile soil, spring up into deathless friendships, big deeds of worth, and a memory that will not soon fade. . . .
