A Quote by David Hume on learning, life, mankind, and path

The sweetest path of life leads through the avenues of learning, and whoever can open up the way for another, ought, so far, to be esteemed a benefactor to mankind.

A Quote by David Hume on learning, life, mankind, science, and path

The sweetest and most inoffensive path of life leads through the avenues of science and learning; and whoever can either remove any obstruction in this way, or open up any new prospect, ought, so far, to be esteemed a benefactor to mankind.

A Quote by Daniel H. Wells on blessings, charity, dependence, direction, god, hunger, independence, and path

You may give a piece of bread to a hungry person, and when the cravings of hunger return some one else must administer to his wants again; to put that person in a position to earn his own subsistence is true charity; in this way you direct his feet in the path of true independence, he is then only dependent on his own exertions and on the blessings of his God.

A Quote by Peter "Dale" Wimbrow, Sr. on army, beginning, church, goals, god, good, honor, men, religion, virtue, and path

My Church, and My Creed You ask me "what is my religion"? Now what if I say I have None? You'll be wrongly impressed, And unduly distressed So wait - I have only begun. My creed in the sense that you mean it, Has no single symbol, or sign. Big, impressive, or small, There is good in them all, So perhaps Your religion is mine. My doctrine is any that stands for The honor and virtue of men. For whatever we preach, We're all striving to reach A mutual goal in the end. My church is the one that is nearest Wherever I happen to be. The place where men go Their devotion to show, Is good - and sufficient for me. What matters the Name on the mileposts That stand by the path you have trod? If the pathway leads UP Then at last you shall sup With the infinite army of God.

A Quote by Confucius on business, corruption, effort, politicians, time, taoism, and path

But if you do not have the Tao yourself, what business have you spending your time in vain efforts to bring corrupt politicians into the right path?

A Quote by Charlotte Elliott on darkness, day, fatherhood, friendship, god, grief, guests, heart, home, life, loneliness, prayer, resignation, rest, spirit, yielding, and path

My God, my Father, while I stray Far from home, on life's rough way, O teach me from my heart to say, "Thy will be done." Though dark my path and sad my lot, Let me be still and murmur not; But breathe the prayer divinely taught, "Thy will be done." What though in lonely grief I sigh For friends beloved no longer nigh, Submissive still, would I reply, "Thy will be done." If thou shouldst call me to resign What most I prize-it ne'er was mine, I only yield Thee what was Thine; "Thy will be done." If but my fainting heart be blest With thy sweet spirit for its guest, My God, to Thee I leave the rest; "Thy will be done." Renew my will from day to day; Blend it with Thine, and take away All that now makes it hard to say, "Thy will be done."

As half in shade and half in sun This world along its path advances, May that side the sun 's upon Be all that e'er shall meet thy glances!

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on good, heart, questions, and path

A path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you. Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself alone, one question. Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't it is of no use.

Carlos Castaneda (1931 -)
