interest

A Quote by dani on self love, love, selfishness, missing, trust, interest, and heart

You can never truly love anyone else until you love yourself.  Until you really love yourself, your love for others is purely selfish.  It is an attempt to fulfill the missing part of you with whatever you enjoy about them.
 
Therefore, I cannot trust others who don't love themselves to truly have my best interests at heart.

A Quote by Thomas H. Greco, Jr. on debt, money creation, interest, depression, and business cycle

The banks are continually making new loans and retiring old ones as they are repaid. In the aggregate, the debts owed to banks are increasing with the mere passage of time, because interest accrues over time. The money available to repay those debts, however, can be created only by the banks as they make additional loans.

The net requirement, then, is that banks must make new loans faster than they retire old loans, that is, there must be a continual expansion of bank credit money. If there is not, the result is depression—increasing numbers of defaulted loans, greater numbers of bankruptcies, expanding unemployment—and all the human misery that comes with it.

A Quote by Daphne Rose Kingma on beauty, aliveness, interest, challenge, juice, vitality, passion, cells, morning, and a loving moment

Aliveness
Aliveness is energy. It's the juice,the vitality, and the passion that wakes up our cells every morning. It's what makes us want to dance. It's the energy that moves a relationship from the status quo to something grander and much more expansive, something that makes our hearts beat faster, our minds, and our eyes open wider than ever before. Everything is of interest to a person who is truly alive, whether it's a challenge, a loving moment, a bucket of grief, or a glimpse of beauty.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on books, companions, friendship, interest, society, and writing

Writing a long and substantial book is like having a friend and companion at your side, to whom you can always turn for comfort and amusement, and whose society becomes more attractive as a new and widening field of interest.

Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

A Quote by William Wordsworth on charm, feeling, interest, love, mountains, needs, passion, and thought

The sounding cataract Haunted me like a passion; the tall rock, The mountain, and the deep and gloomy wood, An appetite; a feeling and a love that had no need of a remoter charm by thought supplied, nor any interest Unborrowed from the eye.

William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850)

The sounding cataract Haunted me like a passion; the tall rock, The mountain, and the deep and gloomy wood, Their colours and their forms, were then to me An appetite,-a feeling and a love, That had no need of a remoter charm By thoughts supplied, nor any interest Unborrowed from the eye.

A Quote by Rev. William Paley on community, desires, interest, liberty, and society

To do what we will, is natural liberty; to do what we may consistently with the interests of the community to which we belong, is civil liberty, the only liberty to be desired in a state of civil society.

A Quote by William James on chance, darkness, death, heroism, interest, life, and victory

What excites and interests the looker-on at life, what the romances and the statues celebrate, and the grim civic monuments remind us of, is the everlasting battle of the powers of light with those of darkness; with heroism reduced to its bare chance, yet ever and anon snatching victory from the jaws of death.

William James (1842 - 1910)
