A Quote by Loyd J. Ericson on achievement, christ, circumstances, clarity, desires, direction, feeling, goals, god, growth, heart, idealism, improvement, men, mind, simplicity, understanding, and world

To resolve an issue of improvement of circumstances - to nurture positive growth - the first step is to clearly define and state it in as simple terms as possible. The more concise and clear one's goal is stated - an ideal he desires to achieve - the better he can focus thoughts upon its essentials. One must go beyond what he already understands, by projecting his mind and the feelings of his heart into hitherto unknown areas; and, call upon God for new light upon which to proceed. Such internal direction is available to all persons, because the light of Christ, "was the light of men . . . which lighteth every man that cometh into the world." John 1:4, 9

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on church, coaching, decisions, direction, encouragement, football, growth, improvement, life, opportunity, potential, progress, and responsibility

I feel that the progress I have made as a coach, as well as a person, is a direct result of the growth that I have made through my Church callings. I had the opportunity to serve as a bishop in a campus ward while I was still an assistant coach. When I was appointed head football coach in 1972, I decided to approach my role as a coach much the same as I did as a bishop, delegating responsibility to my assistants, putting responsibility on the players for self-improvement in all aspects of their lives, and using personal interviews with players to try to give positive reinforcement and encouragement so that they might do their very best and reach their full potential, both on and off the field.

He who owns a garden, However small it be, Whose hands have planted in it Flower or bush or tree; He who watches patiently The growth from nurtured sod, Who thrills at newly opened bloom Is very close to God.

A Quote by Joseph Zeitlin on awareness, beauty, duty, divinity, goodness, growth, hatred, injustice, life, men, nations, peace, reflection, relationships, truth, war, and world

As long as men and nations are aware of their divine origin, that human beings are a reflection of the source of all life, then it follows that it is the beholden duty of man to increase goodness, beauty, truth and peace in the world. But when men and nations deny the relationship of man to the divine, then the soil is fertile for the growth of hatred, injustice, strife and war.
