A Quote by Frederick William Robertson on books, conversation, growth, meditation, religion, sermons, truth, and variety

It is not the number of books you read, nor the variety of sermons you hear, nor the amount of religious conversation in which you mix, but it is the frequency and earnestness with which you meditate on these things till the truth in them becomes your own and part of your being, that ensures your growth.

Frederick William Robertson (1816 - 1883)

A Quote by Frederick W. Smith on effort, government, and growth

I paid every effort to seek deregulation throughout FEDEX's start-up and expansion periods, because the biggest impediment to our growth was the government regulations that restricted new entry into the air cargo market.

A Quote by Fred Allen on growth, presidency, and vices

The average vice-president is a form of executive fungus that attaches itself to a desk. On a boat this growth would be called a barnacle.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on charity, christ, eternity, growth, joy, love, purity, selfishness, and world

The world today speaks a great deal about love, and it is sought by many. But the pure love of Christ differs greatly from what the world thinks of love. Charity never seeks selfish gratification. The pure love of Christ seeks only the eternal growth and joy of others.

Ezra Taft Benson (1899 - 1994)

A Quote by Eric Johnson on change, culture, economics, friendship, god, growth, knowledge, lies, life, people, politics, reality, science, scientists, violence, and world

If there is one word which characterizes our world in this exciting last half of the twentieth century, the word is change. Change in political life - change in economic life - change is social life - change in personal life. Change is the hallmark of our times. It's not gradual, comfortable change. It is sudden, rapid, often violent. It touches and often disrupts whole cultures and hundreds of millions of people. Behind it all lies an explosive growth in scientific knowledge and accomplishment. Some 90 per cent of all the scientists who ever lived are living today and the total accumulation of scientific knowledge is doubling every ten years. But this is reality. If we remember that, then we will never flinch at change. We will adjust to it, welcome it, meet it as a friend and know it as God's will.

A Quote by Donella A. Meadows on action, faith, growth, problems, solution, and technology

Technology can relieve the symptoms of a problem without affecting the underlying causes. Faith in technology as the ultimate solution to all problems can thus divert our attention from the most fundamental problem-the problem of growth in a finite system-and prevent us from taking effective action to solve it.
