A Quote by Winifred Gallagher on behavior, colors, emotion, and ideas

The idea of linking color and behavior is reasonable enough. Anyone who has ever felt blue, seen red, blacked out, or turned green knows we're prone to make emotional associations with different shades.

A Quote by William Somerset Maugham on bitterness, cruelty, failure, humility, ideas, kindness, people, success, and tolerance

The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic, and self-complacent is erroneous; on the contrary, it makes them, for the most part, humble, tolerant, and kind. Failure makes people cruel and bitter.

A Quote by William Shakespeare on adoption, ideas, men, satisfaction, and thought

Some men never seem to grow old. Always active in thought, always ready to adopt new ideas, they are never chargeable with foggyism. Satisfied, yet ever dissatisfied, settled, yet ever unsettled, they always enjoy the best of what is, are the first to find the best of what will be.

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

A Quote by William Sanday on acceptance, divinity, god, history, ideas, individuality, lies, mind, problems, salvation, and solution

The solution lies in a complete realization of what we mean by asserting that God is Almighty. The two ideas of Freewill and Divine Sovereignty can not be reconciled in our own minds, but that does not prevent them from being reconciled in God's mind. We measure Him by our own intellectual standard if we think otherwise. And so our solution of the problem of Freewill and of the problems of history and of individual salvation must finally lie in the full acceptance and realization of what is implied by the infinity and the omniscience of God.

A Quote by William R. Bradford on difficulty, eternity, greed, happiness, ideas, impossibility, inspiration, judgment, justice, learning, life, mortality, needs, niceness, organize, perfection, salvation, separation, solution, starting, time, understandi

We give our lives to that which we give our time. I have learned that it is very difficult, if not impossible, to unclutter one's life by starting at the top of the pile with the idea that the solution is to just get things sorted and better organized. It is nice to get better organized, but that is not enough. Much has to be discarded. We must actually get rid of it. To do this we need to develop a list of basics, a list of those things that are indispensable to our mortal welfare and happiness and our eternal salvation. This list must follow the gospel pattern and contain the elements needed for our sanctification and perfection. It must be the product of inspiration and prayerful judgment between the things we really need and things we just want. It should separate need from greed. It must be our best understanding of those things that are important as opposed to those things that are just interesting.

William R. Bradford (1933 -)

A Quote by William Osler on ideas, science, and world

In science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not to the man to whom the idea first occurs.

A Quote by William Orville Douglas on achievement, change, facts, ideas, laws, security, and usefulness

The search for static security-in the law and elsewhere-is misguided. The fact is . . . security can only be achieved through constant change, through discarding old ideas that have outlived their usefulness and adapting to current facts.

A Quote by William George Jordan on ideas, life, preparation, and speech

The man who is slipshod and thoughtless in his daily speech, whose vocabulary is a collection of anemic commonplaces, whose repetitions of phrases and extravagance of interjections act but as feeble disguises to his lack of ideas, will never be brilliant on an occasion when he longs to outshine the stars. Living at one's best is constant preparation for instant use.

A Quote by William James on force, ideas, and individuality

An idea, to be suggestive, must come to the individual with the force of a revelation.
