A Quote by Harold Pinter on emotion, friendship, immortality, life, love, overcoming, and passion

No matter how you look at it, all the emotions connected with love are not really immortal; like all other passions in life, they are bound to fade at some point. The trick is to convert love into some lasting friendship that overcomes the fading passion.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on circumstances, feeling, improvement, kindness, love, overcoming, promises, and service

The key to overcoming aloneness and a feeling of uselessness for one who is physically able is to step outside yourself by helping others who are truly needy. We promise those who will render this kind of service that, in some measure, you will be healed of the loss of loved ones or the dread of being alone. The way to feel better about your own situation is to improve someone else's circumstances.

Ezra Taft Benson (1899 - 1994)

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on control, faith, food, laziness, mountains, overcoming, and senses

The Tempter masters the lazy and irresolute man who dwells on the attractive side of things, ungoverned in his senses, and unrestrained in his food, like the wind overcomes a rotten tree. But the Tempter cannot master a man who dwells on the distasteful side of things, self-controlled in his senses, moderate in eating, resolute and full of faith, like the wind cannot move a mountain crag.
