interest

A Quote by Margery Fish on chance, discovery, garden, heart, inspiration, interest, learning, people, pleasure, and rest

One of the most delightful things about gardening is the freemasonry it gives with other gardeners, and the interest and pleasure all gardeners get by visiting other people's gardens. We all have a lot to learn and in every new garden there is a chance of finding inspiration - new flowers, different arrangement or fresh treatment for old subjects. Even if it is a garden you know by heart there are twelve months in the year and every month means a different garden, and the discovery of things unexpected all the rest of the year.

A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on improvement, interest, kindness, losing, opportunity, time, and world

Remember how often you have postponed minding your interest, and let slip those opportunities the gods have given you. It is now high time to consider what sort of world you are part of, and from what kind of governor of it you are descended; that you have a set period assigned you to act in, and unless you improve it to brighten and compose your thoughts, it will quickly run off with you, and be lost beyond recovery.

Marcus Aurelius (121 - 180)

A Quote by Marcel Duchamp on individuality and interest

The individual, man as a man, man as a brain, if you like, interests me more than what he makes, because I've noticed that most artists only repeat themselves.

A Quote by Marquise Magdeleine de Sablé on interest, listening, and needs

Everyone is so caught up in his own passions and interests that he always wants to talk about them without getting involved in the passions and interests of those to whom he speaks, although his listeners have the same need for others to listen to and help them.

A Quote by Marquise Magdeleine de Sablé on deception, interest, love, people, and self-love

Self-love is even deceived by self-love, because by looking out for our own interests and disregarding those of other people, we lose the advantage that comes with the exchange of favors.

A Quote by Loyd J. Ericson on belief, caring, desires, failure, garden, idealism, interest, lust, performance, procrastination, spirituality, understanding, water, and world

When the right thing is understood, but one slackens his performance; then his attention will become commanded by the cares of the world, the deceitfulness of riches and the lust of other things. When these things come to dominate one's interest, his performance of the more important spiritual insights will fail. Belief without performance will never produce desired results. It is like planting seeds in your garden, watering the garden until they sprout, then failing to continue to water and weed thereafter. Likewise, a person caught by procrastination in the stony and thorny ground of mere belief, will never reap the fruits of his ideals.

A Quote by Logan Pearsall Smith on cheating, interest, people, and worth

It is almost worth while to be cheated; people's little frauds have an interest which amply repays what they cost us.

A Quote by L.M. Boyd on borrowing, company, and interest

Think today's interest rates are high? The Pilgrims borrowed $7000 from a London company of 70 investors in 1620, and devoted the next 23 years to repaying it at 43 percent.

A Quote by Lazurus Long on interest, time, and worth

$100 placed at 7 percent interest compounded quarterly for 200 years will increase to more than $100,000,000, by which time it will be worth nothing.

A Quote by Lazurus Long on interest, nature, and self-interest

Never appeal to a man's 'better nature,' he may not have one. Invoking his self-interest gives you more leverage.
