men and women

A Quote by Herbert Clark Hoover on america, children, facts, fatherhood, future, ideas, leadership, life, mediocrity, men, men and women, motherhood, and women

Recently, in my opinion, there has been too much talk about the Common Man. It has been dinned into us that this is the Century of the Common Man. The idea seems to be that the Common Man has come into his own at last. But I have never been able to find out who this is. In fact, most Americans will get mad and fight if you try calling them common. . . . I have never met a father and mother who did not want their children to grow up to be uncommon men and women. May it always be so. For the future of America rests not in mediocrity, but in the constant renewal of leadership in every phase of our national life.

A Quote by Herbert Clark Hoover on character, god, honesty, inventions, life, men, men and women, and women

While I can make no claim for having introduced the term "rugged individualism," I should be proud to have invented it. It has been used by American leaders for over a half-century in eulogy of those God-fearing men and women of honesty whose stamina and character and fearless assertion of rights led them to make their own way in life.

A Quote by Henry Havelock Ellis on men, men and women, nature, sympathy, understanding, women, and youth

If men and women are to understand each other, to enter into each other's nature with mutual sympathy, and to become capable of genuine comradeship, the foundation must be laid in youth.

A Quote by Helen Adams Keller on absence, belief, blessings, conviction, cooperation, effort, evil, good, helpful, men, men and women, optimism, patience, rest, soul, struggle, suffering, women, and world

I can say with conviction that the struggle which evil necessitates is one of the greatest blessings. It makes us strong, patient, helpful men and women. It lets us into the soul of things and teaches us that although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcomings of it. My optimism, then, does not rest on the absence of evil, but on a glad belief in the preponderance of good and a willing effort always to cooperate with the good, that it may prevail.

A Quote by Heber J. Grant on fatherhood, god, good, guidance, men, men and women, nations, responsibility, and women

We do appeal to all men and women, realizing the responsibility resting upon them, to seek God our heavenly Father to guide them politically as well as religiously, and to stand for right and for those things that are for the good of this nation.

A Quote by Harry S. Truman on enthusiasm, fame, jobs, life, energy, men, men and women, study, and women

I studied the lives of great men and famous women, and I found that the men and women who got to the top were those who did the jobs they had in hand, with everything they had of energy and enthusiasm.

A Quote by George Matthew Adams on interest, men, men and women, mind, reason, women, and worth

One reason why men and women lose their heads so often is that they use them so little! It is the same with everything. If we have anything that is valuable, it must be put to some sort of use. If a man's muscles are neglected, he soon has none, or rather none worth mentioning. The more the mind is used the more flexible it becomes, and the more it takes upon itself new interests.

A Quote by Franklin Pierce Adams on elections, men, men and women, people, and women

Elections are won by men and women chiefly because most people vote against somebody rather than for somebody.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on blessings, eternity, friendship, god, life, men, men and women, opportunity, peace, soul, vision, and women

Men and women who turn their lives over to God will find out that he can make a lot more out of their lives than they can. He will deepen their joys, expand their vision, quicken their minds, strengthen their muscles, lift their spirits, multiply their blessings, increase their opportunities, comfort their souls, raise up friends, and pour out peace. Whoever will lose his life to God will find he has eternal life.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on blessings, divinity, fear, god, guidance, humility, life, men, men and women, peace, prayer, serenity, soul, spirit, and women

There is no place for fear among men and women who Almighty, who do not hesitate to humble themselves in seeking divine guidance through prayer. Though persecutions arise, though reverses come, in prayer we can find reassurance, for God will speak peace to the soul. That peace, that spirit of serenity, is life's greatest blessing. .
