A Quote by Dan Brent Burt on careers, intelligence, jobs, knowledge, people, satisfaction, skill, superiority, and time

It ís not the technical skills, hard knowledge or intelligence that makes fast track selling professionals effective in their jobs. Most of the time, it is their superior skill in handling people that propels their career, boosts productivity and ensures their job satisfaction.

A Quote by Dallin H. Oaks on attitude, beginning, children, earth, eternity, god, identity, individuality, knowledge, practice, prophets, purpose, and spirit

Our attitude toward abortion . . . is fixed by our knowledge that according to an eternal plan all of the spirit children of God must come to this earth for a glorious purpose, and that individual identity began long before conception and will continue for all the eternities to come. We rely on the prophets of God who have told us that while there may be 'rare' exceptions, 'the practice of elective abortion is fundamentally contrary to the Lord's injunction, 'Thou shalt not . . . kill, nor do anything like unto it'

A Quote by Dallin H. Oaks on church, duty, education, eternity, god, knowledge, learning, mind, motives, questions, service, simplicity, spirit, and teaching

Motive is also important in our quest for knowledge and in the questioning that accompanies it. In commenting on our duty to educate for eternity, Eugene England writes: Teaching or learning - with the Spirit of God simply means (though it is not simple) that we are doing so with an eye single to eternal, not worldly, values, with an eye single to lasting development of the mind and spirit and to useful service to others, especially to aid in their lasting development of mind and spirit. -Why the Church is as True as the Gospel, Bookcraft, 1986, p. 86.

A Quote by D. V. Lindley on autobiography, belief, facts, ideas, knowledge, originality, simplicity, virtue, work, and writers

I believe that almost all important, useful ideas are simple. Peter Whittle has recently put it nicely in an autobiographical essay. "If a piece of work is heavy and complicated then it is wrong." . . . Some writers feel that to express their ideas in simple terms is degrading. Some use complexity to disguise the paucity of their material. In fact, simplicity is a virtue and when, as here, it is both original and useful, it can represent a real advance in knowledge.

A Quote by Count Maurice Maeterlinck on animals, death, knowledge, and pain

All our knowledge merely helps us to die a more painful death than animals that know nothing.

A Quote by Confucius on character, consequences, courage, goodness, knowledge, learning, love, principles, and simplicity

Love of goodness without love of learning degenerates into simple-mindedness. Love of knowledge without love of learning degenerates into utter lack of principle. Love of faithfulness without love of learning degenerates into injurious disregard of consequences. Love of uprightness without love of learning degenerates into harshness. Love of courage without love of learning degenerates into insubordination. Love of strong character without love of learning degenerates into mere recklessness.
