A Quote by Bernard Mannes Baruch on adoption, america, belief, clothes, custom, maturity, people, and path

America has never forgotten - and will never forget - the nobler things that brought her into being and that light her path - the path that was entered upon only one hundred and fifty years ago. . . . How young she is! It will be centuries before she will adopt that maturity of custom - the clothing of the grave - that some people believe she is already fitted for.

Bernard Baruch (1870 - 1965)

A Quote by Ayn Rand on chance, destruction, kindness, mountains, world, and path

Yes . . . Yes, I feel that there's no chance for me to exist, if they do . . . no chance, no room, no world I can cope with. . . . I don't want to feel it, I keep pushing it back, but it's coming closer and I know I have no place to run. . . . I can't explain what it feels like, I can't catch hold of it - and that's path of the terror, that you can't catch hold of anything - it's as if the whole world were suddenly destroyed, but not by an explosion - an explosion is something hard and solid - but destroyed by . . . by some horrible kind of softening . . . as if nothing were solid, nothing held any shape at all, and you could poke your finger through stone walls and the stone would give, like jelly, and mountains would slither, and buildings would switch their shapes like clouds - and that would be the end of the world, not fire and brimstone, but goo.

A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery on liberty, freedom, meaning, and path

There is no liberty except the liberty of some one making his way towards something.  Such a man can be set free if you will teach him the meaning of thirst, and how to trace a path to a well.  Only then will he embark upon a course of action that will not be without significance.  You could not liberate a stone if there were no law of gravity - for where will the stone go, once it is quarried?

A Quote by Anne Raver on friendship, garden, imagination, and path

A garden is like the self. It has so many layers and winding paths, real or imagined, that it can never be known, completely, even by the most intimate of friends.

A Quote by Anne Brontë on losing, power, respect, self-reliance, self-respect, world, and path

I would not send a poor girl into the world, . . . ignorant of the snares that beset her path; nor would I watch and guard her, till, deprived of self-respect and self-reliance, she lost the power or the will to watch and guard herself .

A Quote by Angel Abrea on betrayal, criticism, faith, fatherhood, friendship, impatience, journeys, life, patience, travel, and path

When on life's journey it becomes our lot to travel with criticism of skeptics, the hate of some, the rejection of others, the impatience of many, or a friend's betrayal, we must be able to pray in such a manner that an abiding faith and a strong testimony that the Lord will be with us to the end, will compel us to say, "Nevertheless, Father, Thy will be done, and with Thy help, in patience I will follow firmly on the path that takes me back to Thee."

Angel Abrea (1933 -)
