A Quote by Walter Savage Landor on clarity, conflict, guidance, heart, improvement, judgment, and understanding

Heat and animosity, contest and conflict may sharpen the wits, although they rarely do; they never strengthen the understanding, clear the perspicacity, guide the judgment, or improve the heart.

Walter Savage Landor (1775 - 1864)

A Quote by Walker Percy on boredom, circumstances, civilization, dawn, death, dogs, food, good, guidance, imagination, people, seriousness, sleep, thought, and weather

Why is it that no other species but man gets bored? Under the circumstances in which a man gets bored, a dog goes to sleep. Thought Experiment: Imagine that you are a member of a tour visiting Greece. The group goes to the Parthenon. It is a bore. Few people even bother to look - it looked better in the brochure. So people take half a look, mostly take pictures, remark on the serious erosion by acid rain. You are puzzled. Why should one of the glories and fonts of Western civilization, viewed under pleasant conditions - good weather, good hotel room, good food, good guide - be a bore? Now imagine under what set of circumstances a viewing of the Parthenon would not be a bore. For example, you are a NATO colonel defending Greece against a Soviet assault. You are in a bunker in dowtown Athens, binoculars propped on sandbags. It is dawn. A medium-range missile attack is under way. Half a million Greeks are dead. Two missiles bracket the Parthenon. The next will surely be a hit. Between columns of smoke, a ray of golden light catches the portico. Are you bored? Can you see the Parthenon?

A Quote by W. S. Merwin on awareness, culture, evolution, force, garden, guidance, life, people, plants, time, water, and world

In the time that I have been acquainted with this region I have become increasingly aware of it as a testament of water, the origin and guide of its contours and gradients and of all the lives - the plants and small creatures, and the culture - that evolved here. That was always here to be seen, of course, and the recognition has forced itself, in one form or other, upon people in every part of the world who have been directly involved with the growing of living things. The gardener who ignores it is soon left with no garden.

A Quote by unknown on doubt, guidance, justice, learning, life, mind, and nature

Each billow that comes rolling on to toss us on its crest, Is nature's way to teach us how to do our level best. If we learn each trial's lesson, 'tis an aid our lives to guide, If we pass it by unheeded, we're just drifting with the tide. So when trials and tribulations come to fill your mind with doubt, They're to teach some needed lesson you could never learn without.

A Quote by unknown on choice, clarity, decisions, fear, guidance, kindness, and path

You can choose a ready guide In some celestial voice If you choose not to decide You still have made a choice You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill I will choose a path that's clear I will chose free will.

God gave this child to you to guide, To love, to walk through life beside. A little child so full of charms, To fill a pair of loving arms. God picked you out because he knew How safe his child would be with you.
