A Quote by T. T. Munger on evil, good, goodness, life, love, overcoming, patience, selfishness, struggle, sympathy, weakness, and wisdom

Life is given for wisdom, and yet we are not wise; for goodness, and we are not good; for overcoming evil, and evil remains; for patience and sympathy and love, and yet we are fretful and hard and weak and selfish. We are keyed not to attainment, but to the struggle toward it.

T. T. Munger (1830 - 1910)

A Quote by Richard G. Scott on body, challenge, decisions, destruction, difficulty, failure, generations, intelligence, life, mind, morality, overcoming, persuasion, problems, seriousness, success, trust, and world

The world is like a jungle, with dangers that can harm or mutilate your body, enslave or destroy your mind, or decimate your morality. It was intended that life be a challenge, not so that you would fail, but that you might succeed through overcoming. You face on every hand difficult but vitally important decisions. There is an array of temptations, destructive influences, and camouflaged dangers, the like of which no previous generation has faced. I am persuaded that today no one, no matter how gifted, strong, or intelligent, will avoid serious problems without seeking the help of the Lord. . . . Trust in the Lord. He knows what He is doing. He already knows of your problems. And He is waiting for you to ask for help.

Richard G. Scott (1924 -)

A Quote by Lao Tzu on overcoming, winning, yielding, and taoism

Though (the Tao) is uncreated itself, it creates all things. Because it has no substance, it can enter into where there is no space. Exercising by returning to itself, winning victories by remaining gentle and yielding, it is softer than anything, and therefore overcomes everything hard.

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on cities, country, destruction, enemies, facts, fatherhood, friendship, good, heart, life, men, overcoming, people, and truth

Upon the road of Zaad a traveler met a man who lived in a nearby village, and the traveler, pointing with his hand to a vast field, asked the man saying, "Was not this the battleground where King Ahlam overcame his enemies?" And the man answered and said, "This has never been a battle-ground. There once stood on this field the great city of Zaad, and it was burnt down to ashes. But now it is a good field, is it not?" And the traveler and the man parted. Not a half mile farther the traveler met another man, and pointing to the field again, he said,"So that is where the great city of Zaad once stood?" And the man said, "There has never been a city in this place. But there was a monastery here, and it was destroyed by the people of the South Country." Shortly after, on that very road of Zaad, the traveler met a third man, and pointing once more to the vast field he said, "Is it not true that this is the place where once there stood a great monastery?' But the man answered, "There has never been a monastery in this neighborhood, but our fathers and our forefathers have told us that once there fell a great meteor on this field." Then the traveler walked on, wondering in his heart. And he met a very old man, and saluting him he said, "Sir , upon this road I have met three men who live in the neighborhood and I have asked each of them about this field, and each one denied what the other had said, and each one told me a new tale that the other had not told." Then the old man raised his head, and answered, "My friend, each and every one of these men told you what was indeed so; but few of us are able to add fact to different fact and make a truth thereof."

A Quote by John Sutherland Bonnell, DD on christianity, depression, disillusionment, faith, guilt, needs, overcoming, problems, resentment, spirituality, and therapy

Emphasis on educational and vocational rehabilitation must not be allowed to overshadow the profound need that will exist for spiritual reorientation. Inevitably there will exist, to a considerable degree, psychological maladjustments manifested in disillusionment, resentment toward civilians, depression, and a sense of guilt. Spiritual therapy available in the resources of the Christian faith can accomplish most in overcoming these problems.
