A Quote by Adlai Ewing Stevenson on inspiration, learning, meetings, quotations, and style

Adlai Stevenson, himself a notable speaker, often reminisced about his last meeting with Churchill. I asked him on whom or what he had based his oratorical style. Churchill replied, "It was an American statesman who inspired me and taught me how to use every note of the human voice like an organ." Winston then to my amazement started to quote long excerpts from Bourke Cockran's speeches of 60 years before. "He was my model," Churchill said. "I learned from him how to hold thousands in thrall."

A Quote by Adelaide Love on age, deed, direction, doubt, evolution, faith, god, learning, men, power, science, and scientists

Beyond Electrons The new believers of our age are they, The men of science, who have come to learn There is a will that points the cosmic ray, A power that directs what they discern In atmosphere, in star and wave and sod; Beyond electrons they discover-God. From microscope and tube evolves a faith Of modern days, sustaining ancient creeds; It is the scientist who makes a wraith Of doubt, and find a God behind His deeds.

A Quote by Abraham H. Maslow on learning and mistakes

I have learned the novice can often see things that the expert overlooks. All that is necessary is not to be afraid of making mistakes, or of appearing naive.

A Quote by Abigail Smith Adams on chance, diligence, and learning

A Quote by A. Ray Olpin on confession, knowledge, learning, mind, and poetry

No matter how much we learn, there is always more knowledge to be gained. In this connection I am reminded of a short poem that has been in my mind over the years. It reads as follow: I used to think I knew I knew. But now I must confess. The more I know I know I know I know I know the less.

A Quote by A. H. Gray on anxiety, belief, body, contentment, depression, enemies, facts, fear, god, grace, heart, hunger, learning, love, mankind, needs, peace, people, poverty, power, secrets, strength, suffering, present, trust, truth, understanding, a

Unless the secret of inward peace is also the secret of escape from fear, it does not meet a need I believe is almost the central need of mankind. If it be asked, "Why are so many people in the modern world anxious, worried, nervous, irritable, depressed, bad sleepers, and not quite well?" the answer in most cases is that they are frightened. . . . What, then, is the way to escape from the power of this ever-present enemy? I know none except learning that we are in the keeping of a God who will never desert us. . . . There is no fear where love is, and the love of God is always present. . . . Till we have faced that fact, we are not ready to understand what God does actually for those who trust in Him. But when we have learnt that truth, we may go on to say, "Come what may, we know that He will be with us and therefore need not fear." We may have to suffer in the body, but His sustaining grace will never leave us. We may lose our dear ones and so be wounded in our very hearts, but His grace will give us strength to carry even that cross. We may have to face poverty; but if so, He will do for us what He has done for thousands and teach us how to be poor and yet content. We may have to face hunger of the heart, and no one who knows what that means will ever think lightly of it; but even through that fiery trial, His love will sustain those who turn to Him.
