individuality

A Quote by Dr. John H. Finley on citizenship, education, individuality, mind, soul, universe, and world

Education is the process by which the individual relates himself to the universe, gives himself citizenship in the changing world, shares the race's mind and enfranchises his own soul.

A Quote by Dr. Harold Stonier on day, future, individuality, promises, responsibility, security, and welfare

With all its alluring promise that some one else will guarantee for the rainy day, social security can never replace the program that man's future welfare is, after all, a matter of individual responsibility.

A Quote by Dr. Fay B. Nash on achievement, adulthood, challenge, conquest, creativity, happiness, health, individuality, joy, leisure, people, skill, success, and work

It takes a highly intellectual individual to enjoy leisure. . . . Most of us had better count on working. What a man really wants is creative challenge with sufficient skills to bring him within the reach of success so that he may have the expanding joy of achievement. . . . Few people overwork; plenty overeat, overworry, overdrink. . . . Few realize real joy and happiness of conquest. The basis of mental health for the average adult is more work, provided the work is not mere drudgery.

A Quote by Douglas L. Edmonds on achievement, action, community, deed, democracy, duty, faith, fulfillment, goals, good, government, individuality, intelligence, loyalty, opportunity, principles, problems, and solution

How many of us are waiting for the opportunity to do some great thing for the betterment of our community, forgetting that the solution of the problem requires only the active intelligent, fulfillment of individual civic duty. The only things which are wrong about our Government are the things which are wrong with you and me. Democracy is never a thing done; it is and always will be a goal to be achieved. It means action, not passive acquiescence in things as they are; it requires alertness to duty, a dynamic faith, a willingness to give for the good of all. It can live only as a result of loyalty and devotion to its principles expressed by daily deeds.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on christ, duty, freedom, happiness, individuality, jesus, liberty, mankind, necessity, obedience, peace, people, principles, relationships, responsibility, and uncertainty

In these days of uncertainty and unrest, liberty-loving people's greatest responsibility and paramount duty is to preserve and proclaim the freedom of the individual, his relationship to deity, and the necessity of obedience to the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Only thus will mankind find peace and happiness.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on acceptance, character, desires, fear, individuality, rules, spirituality, and strength

There is [a] spiritual strength derived from the subjecting of the physical appetite to the will of the individual. "He who reigns within himself and rules passions, desires, and fears is more than king." If there were no other virtues in fasting but gaining strength of character, that alone would be sufficient justification for its universal acceptance.

A Quote by Daniel Webster on architecture, future, generations, government, individuality, liberty, prosperity, security, and war

If war should sweep our commerce from the seas, another generation will restore it. If war exhausts our treasury, future industry will replenish it. If war desiccate and lay waste our fields, under new cultivation they will grow green again and ripen to future harvest. If the walls of yonder Capitol should fall and its decorations be covered by the dust of battle, all these can be rebuilt. But who shall reconstruct the fabric of a demolished government; who shall dwell in the well-proportioned columns of constitutional liberty; who shall frame together the skillful architecture which unites sovereignty with state's rights, individual security with prosperity?

A Quote by Daniel Webster on death, individuality, and purity

One may live as a conqueror, a king, or a magistrate; but he must die a man. The bed of death brings every human being to his pure individuality, to the intense contemplation of that deepest and most solemn of all relations - the relations between the creature and his Creator.

Daniel Webster (1782 - 1852)
