A Quote by William A. Foster on accidents, achievement, choice, direction, effort, execution, experience, idealism, intelligence, intention, necessity, quality, satisfaction, sincerity, and usefulness

Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives, the cumulative experience of many masters of craftsmanship. Quality also marks the search for an ideal after necessity has been satisfied and mere usefulness achieved.

A Quote by Vita Sackville-West on beauty, charm, difficulty, economics, life, luxury, necessity, people, poets, sharing, society, traditions, ugliness, and world

Gardening is a luxury occupation: an ornament, not a necessity, of life. . . . Fortunate gardener, who may preoccupy himself solely with beauty in these difficult and ugly days! He is one of the few people left in this distressful world to carry on the tradition of elegance and charm. A useless member of society, considered in terms of economics, he must not be denied his rightful place. He deserves to share it, however humbly, with the painter and poet.

A Quote by unknown on journeys, life, metaphor, and necessity

Life is described in one of four ways: a journey, a battle, a pilgrimage, or a race. Select your own metaphors, but the necessity of finishing is all the same. For if life is a journey, it must be completed. If life is a battle, it must be finished. If life is a pilgrimage, it must be concluded. And if life is a race, it must be won.
