individuality

A Quote by R. Shannon on ideas, individuality, jobs, security, and thinking

Those who devise better methods of utilizing manpower, tools, machinery, materials and facilities are making real contributions toward our national security. Today, these ideas are a form of insurance for our national security; tomorrow, this same progressive thinking is insurance for our individual security-it is, in effect, job insurance.

A Quote by R. A. Hayward on action, individuality, and opposites

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. If you want to receive a great deal, you first have to give a great deal. If each individual will give of himself to whomever he can, wherever he can, in any way that he can, in the long run he will be compensated in the exact proportion that he gives.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on acceptance, disease, ethics, excellence, individuality, mediocrity, people, and responsibility

But when we get enough people who don't care, and who don't accept personal responsibility for high ethical standards, our organization gets the "M" disease. Mediocrity. Anybody in the place can be a carrier. By the same token, every individual can carry the cure: the ethics of excellence.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on ethics, excellence, and individuality

Notice that "I" is at the center of the word "ethical." There is no "they." Achieving the ethics of excellence is our individual assignment.

A Quote by Piet Mondrian on art, beauty, emotion, individuality, life, and satisfaction

If the universal is the essential, then it is the basis of all life and art. Recognizing and uniting with universal therefore gives us the greatest aesthetic satisfaction, the greatest emotion of beauty. the more this union with the universal is felt, the more individual subjectivity declines.

A Quote by Philip Gilbert Hamerton on discipline, existence, individuality, life, sharing, society, solitude, strength, and war

A perfect life is like that of a ship of war which has its own place in the fleet and can share in its strength and discipline, but can also go forth alone in the solitude of the infinite sea. We ought to belong to society, to have our place in it, and yet be capable of a complete individual existence outside of it.

A Quote by Ordway Tead on democracy, dictatorship, individuality, personality, personality, purpose, sacrifice, satisfaction, self-sacrifice, society, survival, value, and vision

Sooner or later a democracy which is to survive has to be able to rely upon that enlargement of vision and purpose of those individuals who compose it, which means that their craving for devotion and self-sacrifice is satisfied in a democratic society on a nobler level, and with a finer recognition of the value of individual personality than is true of a national purpose of a totalitarian state under a dictator.
