A Quote by Ansel Adams on ability, chance, feeling, good, intuition, mind, photography, and practice

In my mind's eye, I visualize how a particular . . . sight and feeling will appear on a print. If it excites me, there is a good chance it will make a good photograph. It is an intuitive sense, an ability that comes from a lot of practice.

Ansel Adams (1902 - 1984)

A Quote by Anne Sullivan on children, knowledge, love, mind, and obedience

Obedience is the gateway through which knowledge, yes, and love, too, enter the mind of the child.

A Quote by Anne Rix Miltz on belief, mind, neighbors, prosperity, richness, sacrifice, success, thought, wealth, and world

The old thought that one cannot be rich except at the expense of his neighbor, must pass away. True prosperity adds to the richness of the whole world, such as that of the man who makes two trees grow where only one grew before. The parasitical belief in prosperity as coming by the sacrifices of others has no place in the mind that thinks true. "My benefit is your benefit, your success is my success," should be the basis of all our wealth.

A Quote by Anna Quindlen on experience, heart, knowledge, mind, people, poetry, soul, wine, and words

People who are knowledgeable about poetry sometimes discuss it in that knowing, rather hateful way in which oenophiles talk about wine: robust, delicate, muscular. This has nothing to do with how most of us experience it, the heart coming around the corner and unexpectedly running into the mind. Of all the words that have stuck to the ribs of my soul, poetry has been the most filling.

A Quote by Annabella Milbanke on blessings, contempt, evil, feeling, good, humanity, impulses, inconsistency, losing, mind, misery, possessions, power, and regret

When indignation takes possession of his mind - and it is easily excited - his disposition becomes malevolent. He hates with the bitterest contempt. But as soon as he has indulged those feelings, he regains the humanity which he had lost - from the immediate impulse of provocation - and repents deeply. So that his mind is continually making the most sudden transitions - from good to evil, from evil to good. A state of such perpetual tumult must be attended with the misery of restless inconsistency. He laments his want of tranquillity and speaks of the power of application to composing studies, as a blessing placed beyond his attainment, which he regrets.

A Quote by Angela Carter on art, existence, kindness, life, mind, practice, and world

Fine art, that exists for itself alone, is art in a final state of impotence. If nobody, including the artist, acknowledges art as a means of knowing the world, then art is relegated to a kind of rumpus room of the mind and the irresponsibility of the artist and the irrelevance of art to actual living becomes part and parcel of the practice of art.

A Quote by Andrew Young on ability, beginning, belief, chance, courage, day, faith, god, happiness, life, love, mind, money, prayer, and zeal

For me, happiness came from prayer to a kindly God, faith in a kindly God, love for my fellow man, and doing the very best I could every day of my life. I had looked for happiness in fast living, but it was not there. I tried to find it in money, but it was not there, either. But when I placed myself in tune with what I believe to be fundamental truths of life, when I began to develop my limited ability, to rid my mind of all kinds of tangled thoughts, and fill it with zeal and courage and love, when I gave myself a chance by treating myself decently and sensibly I began to feel the stimulating, warm glow of happiness, and life for me began to flow like a stream between smooth banks.

A Quote by Andrew Preston Peabody on character, force, heart, mind, soul, and work

The force, the mass of character, mind, heart or soul that a man can put into any work is the most important factor in that work.
