A Quote by Frank C. Lockwood on achievement, beauty, duty, happiness, life, service, and path

It is not so much what we get out of life as what we put into it that determines how large our returns of happiness shall be. The triumphant life is to be achieved through service. But it must be free and not compulsory. . . . There is a place where the path of duty suddenly becomes the path of beauty.

A Quote by Felicia D. Hemans on beauty, familiarity, and path

A Quote by Father Jeremiah Joseph Callahan on assumptions, difficulty, mind, schools, theory, thought, and path

Einstein is an analytical mathematician seeking to give a physical interpretation to the conclusions of his mathematical process. In this he is hampered by a load of contradictory and absurd assumptions of the school that he follows, which throws him in to all manner of difficulty. Einstein has such a faculty for embracing both sides of a contradiction that one would have to be of the same frame of mind to follow his thought, it is so peculiarly his own. The whole Relativity theory is as easy to follow as the path of a bat in the air at night.

Faith will turn any course, light any path, relieve any distress, bring joy out of sorrow, peace out of strife, friendship out of enmity, heaven out of hell. Faith is God at work.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on birth, children, control, destruction, devil, family, fatherhood, home, people, politics, rebellion, women, words, and path

And so today, the undermining of the home and family is on the increase, with the devil anxiously working to displace the father as the head of the home and create rebellion among the children. [Isaiah] describes the condition when [he] states, "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them." and then these words follow-and consider these words seriously when you think of those political leaders who are promoting birth control and abortion: "O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12 KJV

A Quote by Ernest R.. on cities, dance, dreams, friendship, home, reflection, and path

I know a road that leads into a city, Also a lane that finds a cooling stream, Where ferns may look down at their green reflection And sway with the winds and dream- and dream. I know a path that leads into a forest, Lined with purple shadows of the night, While poplars bend somewhere along a hilltop Ringing their silver bells in quick delight. I know a trail that dances over hill-tops Reaching high for clouds that sail the blue, But best I know a path that leads me homeward- A lane that takes me home to friends- and you.

A Quote by Ernest Dowson on dreams, wine, and path

They are not long, the days of wine and roses: Out of a misty dream Our path emerges for a while, then closes Within a dream.
