A Quote by Dr. Stanley G. Dulsky on ability, certainty, improvement, leadership, management, men, obligation, performance, and time

It is the social obligation of management to make certain that its executives are functioning at peak performance, both physically and psychologically. To keep top men from spinning, management must see that executives should: receive periodic medical checkups; receive periodic psychological evaluations; be given an adequate number of assistants of proper ability; have their time pressures reduced through improved selling; be given training in leadership.

A Quote by Dr. Alexis Carrel on action, beginning, fear, grace, habits, humility, journeys, life, obligation, observation, prayer, pride, selfishness, sincerity, and soul

If you make a habit of sincere prayer, your life will be very noticeably and profoundly altered. Prayer stamps with its indelible mark our actions and demeanor. A tranquillity of bearing, a facial and bodily repose, are observed in those whose inner lives are thus enriched. Within the depths of consciousness a flame kindles. And man sees himself. He discovers his selfishness, his silly pride, his fears, his greeds, his blunders. He develops a sense of moral obligation, intellectual humility. Thus begins a journey of the soul toward the realm of grace. . . . [Continued]

A Quote by David Oman McKay on compliments, failure, love, obligation, trust, and world

To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved. Love is the sweetest thing in the world, but to be trusted throws upon him who receives that trust an obligation that he must not fail to discharge.

A Quote by Anthony Kennedy on government, obligation, and speech

The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is besides the point. Inconvenience does not absolve the government of its obligation to tolerate speech.
