A Quote by Alexander Pope on age, books, children, emptiness, gold, laws, life, nature, play, prayer, and youth

Behold the child, by Nature's kindly law, Pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw; Some livelier plaything gives his youth delight, A little louder, but as empty quite; Scarfs, garters, gold, amuse his riper stage, And beads and prayer-books are the toys of age. Pleased with this bauble still, as that before, Till tired he sleeps, and life's poor play is o'er.

A Quote by Alexander Pope on eternity, home, hope, life, and soul

Hope springs eternal in the human breast: Man never is, but always to be blest. The soul, uneasy and confined from home, Rests and expatiates in a life to come.

A Quote by Alexander Pope on death, fame, and life

What's fame? a fancy'd life in other's breath. A thing beyond us, even before our death.

A Quote by Alexander Pope on ambition, death, justice, life, and pride

Awake, my St. John! leave all meaner things To low ambition and the pride of kings. Let us (since life can little more supply Than just to look about us, and to die) Expatiate free o'er all this scene of man; A mighty maze! but not without a plan.

A Quote by Baron Friedrich Heinrich Alexander von Humboldt on happiness, life, nature, and unhappiness

I am more and more convinced that our happiness or unhappiness depends far more on the way we meet the events of life, than on the nature of those events themselves.

A Quote by Alexander Emmanuel (Alex) Rodriguez on day, dogs, future, goals, learning, life, needs, past, people, play, present, and thinking

I'm focussing on what I haven't attained, not what I have. A lot has come to me early. I don't want to get consumed with that. Winners live in the present tense. People who come up short are consumed with future or past. I want to be living in the now. My goal is to play one full game in the now, but I haven't even gotten past the first inning yet. I start thinking about where my mom is or if my dogs have been fed. The average human has 2,000 thoughts a day. The really accomplished have 1,500 because you can focus longer. I need to learn how to focus longer.

A Quote by Alexander B. Morrison on beginning, jesus, life, love, people, and promises

I finish where I began: Jesus' statement "Come and see" provides both an invitation and a promise to all people everywhere. Come to Him; see Him as King of Kings and Lord of Lords; recognize in Him the great Messiah who will come again with healing in His wings, to set His people free. He will wrap you about in the cloak of His redeeming love, and your life will be changed forever.
