path

A Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on boredom, companions, men, and path

The heights by great men reached and kept, Were not obtained by sudden flight But they, while their companions slept, Were toiling upward in the night. Standing on what too long we bore With shoulders bent and downcast eyes, We may discern - unseen before, A path to higher destinies.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)

A Quote by Henry van Dyke on goals, god, heaven, home, love, soul, wonder, and path

Home at last. Who seeks for heaven alone to save his soul may keep the path, but will not reach the goal; while he who walks in love may wonder far, yet God will bring him where the blessed are.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on companions, music, and path

Each entered the forest at a point he, himself, had chosen, where it was darkest and there was no path. If a man does not keep pace with his companions perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away.

Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

A Quote by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky on fear, heart, and path

The more thou dost advance, the more thy feet pitfalls will meet. The Path that leadeth on is lighted by one fire - the light of daring burning in the heart. The more one dares, the more he shall obtain. The more he fears, the more that light shall pale.

Helena Blavatsky (1831 - 1891)

A Quote by H. Van Anderson on character, choice, learning, mind, questions, and path

The moment a question comes to your mind, see yourself mentally taking hold of it and disposing of it. In that moment is your choice made. Thus you learn to take the path to the right. Thus you learn to become the decider and not the vacillator. Thus you build character.

A Quote by Grace Troy on caring, faith, god, home, learning, life, love, needs, pain, prayer, rest, understanding, world, yielding, and path

I know not why His hand is laid In chastening on my life, Nor why it is my little world Is filled so full of strife; I know not why when faith looks up And seeks for rest from pain, That o'er my sky fresh clouds arise And drench my path with rain. I know not why my prayer so long By Him has been denied; Nor why, while other's ships sail on, Mine should in port abide. But I do know that God is love, That He my burden shares, And though I may not understand I know for me He cares. I know the heights for which I long Are often reached through pain, I know the sheaves must needs be threshed To yield the golden grain. 'Tis that I thus may learn to love And know as I am known, I will not care how rough the road That leads me to my home.

A Quote by George Spencer Brown on conformity, courage, discovery, effort, guidance, kindness, mind, needs, reading, secrets, thinking, truth, and path

To arrive at the simplest truth, as Newton knew and practiced, requires years of contemplation. Not activity. Not reasoning. Not calculating. Not busy behaviour of any kind. Not reading. Not talking. Not making an effort. Not thinking. Simply bearing in mind what it is one needs to know. And yet those with the courage to tread this path to real discovery are not only offered practically no guidance on how to do so, they are actively discouraged and have to set abut it in secret, pretending meanwhile to be diligently engaged in the frantic diversions and to conform with the deadening personal opinions which are continually being thrust upon them.

George Spencer Brown (1923 -)
