mind

A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on beginning, god, hope, ideas, inspiration, labor, men, mind, principles, and work

It is better then, to save the work while it is begun. You have done the labor; maintain it - keep it. If men choose to serve you, go with them; but as you have made up your organization upon principle, stand by it; for as surely as God reigns over you, and has inspired your mind, and given you a sense of propriety, and continues to give you hope, so surely will you still cling to these ideas, and you will at last come back after your wanderings, merely to do your work over again.

Abraham Lincoln (1809 - 1865)

A Quote by Abraham L. Feinberg on acceptance, body, books, control, cynicism, day, envy, faith, imagination, life, limitations, energy, mind, peace, people, prayer, relaxation, silence, solitude, soul, spirituality, strength, time, trying, and worry

Ten Spiritual Tonics 1. Stop worrying. Worry kills life. 2. Begin each day with a prayer. It will arm your soul. 3. Control appetite. Over-indulgence clogs body and mind. 4. Accept your limitations . . . 5. Don't envy. It wastes time and energy. 6. Have faith in people. Cynicism sours the disposition. 7. Find a hobby. It will relax your nerves. 8. Read a book a week to stimulate imagination and broaden your views. 9. Spend some time alone for the peace of solitude and silence. 10. Try to want what you have, instead of spending your strength trying to get what you want.

A Quote by 'Abd al-Kader on angels, belief, christianity, community, diversity, excellence, glory, islam, knowledge, mind, prophets, saints, schools, and time

"Each time that something comes to your mind regarding Allah - know that He is different from that!" Commentary: If you think and believe that He is what all the schools of Islam profess and believe - He is that, and He is other than that! If you think that He is what diverse communities believe - Muslims, Christians, Jews, Mazdeans, polytheists and others - He is that and He is other than that! And if you think and believe what is professed by the Knowers par excellence - prophets, saints and angels - He is that! He is other than that! None of His creatures worships Him in all His aspects; none is unfaithful to Him in all His aspects. No one knows Him in all His aspects; no one is ignorant of Him in all His aspects. Those who are among the most knowing regarding Him have said: "Glory to Thee. We have no knowledge except what You have taught us." (Koran 2:32)

A Quote by A. W. Tozer on body, life, mind, personality, personality, prayer, and spirituality

A satisfying prayer life elevates and purifies every act of body and mind and integrates the entire personality into a single spiritual unit. In the long pull we pray only as well as we live.

A Quote by A. W. Pink on faith, god, heart, life, mind, needs, and observation

From every pulpit in the land it needs to be thundered forth that God still lives, that God still observes, ... still reigns. Faith is now in the crucible, it is being tested by fire, and there is no fixed... resting place for the heart and mind but in the Throne of God. What is needed now, as never before, is a full, positive, constructive setting forth of the Godhood of God.

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.

The mind is like the stomach. It is not how much you put into it that counts, but how much it digests.

A Quote by A. H. R. Fairchild on ability, culture, day, feeling, ideas, judgment, life, mind, problems, questions, and sympathy

The most distinctive mark of a cultured mind is the ability to take another's point of view; to put one's self in another's place, and see life and its problems from a point of view different from one's own. To be willing to test a new idea; to be able to live on the edge of difference in all matters intellectually; to examine without heat the burning question of the day; to have imaginative sympathy, openness and flexibility of mind, steadiness and poise of feeling, cool calmness of judgment, is to have culture.
