meaning

A Quote by Earl Nightingale on goals, journeys, life, meaning, sleep, time, and work

We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we've established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.

Earl Nightingale (1921 - 1989)

Life's meaning has always eluded me and I guess always will. But I love it just the same.

A Quote by Douglas Noel Adams on belief, facts, heart, meaning, problems, and simplicity

If on the other hand he went to pay his respects to The Door and it wasn't there . . . what then? The answer, of course, was very simple. He had a whole board of circuits for dealing with exactly this problem, in fact this was the very heart of his function. He would continue to believe in it whatever the facts turned out to be, what else was the meaning of Belief? The Door would still be there, even if the Door was not.

A Quote by Donald Murray on beginning, meaning, problems, thought, and writing

Meaning is not thought up and then written down. The act of writing is an act of thought. All writing is experimental in the beginning. It is an attempt to solve a problem, to find a meaning, to discover its own way towards a meaning.

A Quote by Don DeLillo on age, audiences, awareness, commitment, contempt, conviction, death, information, life, meaning, mystery, newspapers, prose, and satisfaction

There's an element of contempt for meanings. You want to write outside the usual framework. You want to dare readers to make a commitment you know they can't make. That's part of [crazed prose]. There's also the sense of drowning in information and in the mass awareness of things. Everybody seems to know everything. Subjects surface and are totally exhausted in a matter of days. ... The writer is driven by his conviction that some truths aren't arrived at so easily, that life is still full of mystery, that it might be better for you, dear reader, if you went back to the living section of your newspaper because this is the dying section and you don't really want to be here. This writer is working against the age and so he feels some satisfaction at not being widely read. He is diminished by an audience

A Quote by Theodore Seuss Geisel "Dr. Seuss" on books, meaning, and preachers

Preachers in pulpits talked about what a great message is in the book. No matter what you do, somebody always imputes meaning into your books.

A Quote by David M. Paton on children, christianity, concern, correction, creation, faith, god, knowledge, meaning, science, study, thought, and universe

We ought indeed to expect to find the works of God in such things as the advance of knowledge. Knowledge of the physical universe is not to be thought of as irrelevant to Christian faith [simply] because it does not lead to saving knowledge of God. In so far as it is concerned with God's creation, physical science is a fitting study for God's children. Moreover, the advance of scientific knowledge does negatively correct and enlarge theological notions - at the least, the geologists and astrophysicists have helped us to rid ourselves of parochial notions of God, and filled in some of the meaning of such phrases as "almighty."

A Quote by Dan Brent Burt on feeling, ideas, information, meaning, potential, and words

Selling is communicating and communicating is a complex activity. It requires the exchange of information, ideas and feelings with minimal distortion. The meanings of the words and thoughts conveyed to and from your potential customers must be received exactly as conceived.

A Quote by Dame Edith Sitwell on dreams, meaning, reality, and world

Rhythm is one of the principal translators between dream and reality. Rhythm might be described as, to the world of sound, what light is to the world of sight. It shapes and gives new meaning. Rhythm was described by Schopenhauer as melody deprived of its pitch.
