A Quote by Grenville Kleiser on balance, business, interest, laughter, leisure, personality, personality, play, rest, and work

You were intended not only to work, but to rest, laugh, play, and have proper leisure and enjoyment. To develop an all-around personality you must have interest outside of your regular vocation that will serve to balance your business responsibilities.

A Quote by Grenville Kleiser on character, ideas, influence, justice, life, mind, personality, personality, and wishes

Just as you are unconsciously influenced by outside advertisement, announcement, and appeal, so you can vitally influence your life from within by auto-suggestion. The first thing each morning, and the last thing each night, suggest to yourself specific ideas that you wish to embody in your character and personality. Address such suggestions to yourself, silently or aloud, until they are deeply impressed upon your mind.

A Quote by George Eliot on mind, personality, and personality

But most of us are apt to settle within ourselves that the man who blocks our way is odious, and not to mind causing him a little of the disgust which his personality excites in ourselves.

A Quote by Gary Zukav on anger, compassion, creativity, experience, fear, heart, illusions, impulses, learning, love, personality, personality, power, purpose, sorrow, soul, spirit, present, and words

Illusion holds power over you when you are not able to remember that you are a powerful spirit that has taken on the physical experience for the purpose of learning. It has power over you when you are compelled by wants and impulses and values of your personality. It holds power over you when you fear and hate and sorrow and fester in anger or strike out in rage. It has NO power over you when you LOVE, when compassion opens your heart to others, when your creativity flows unimpeded joyously into the present moment. In other words, the illusion had no power over a personality that is fully aligned with the soul.

A Quote by Frederick Ward Kates on christianity, eternity, existence, fatherhood, god, history, jesus, knowledge, life, love, meaning, men, obedience, personality, personality, understanding, and virtue

The Christian clearly understands that Jesus does not reveal all that is signified by the word "God," but only as much as could be revealed through a perfect human personality living in absolute obedience to God's will. The knowledge of God that men have by virtue of Jesus' revelation is quite enough for men to live by in this life, and to live gloriously and thankfully by, Christians maintain - the knowledge that God the Creator, the Almighty and Eternal, the Lord of history, is man's Heavenly Father, and that love might well be, and indeed is, the ultimate meaning of human existence.

A Quote by Erich Fromm on birth, effort, life, personality, and personality

Man's main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality.

A Quote by Emil Brunner on belief, buddhism, character, christ, christianity, communication, direction, divinity, faith, god, history, indifference, islam, jesus, life, personality, personality, philosophy, practice, prophets, questions, religion, soul,

For the Platonic or Aristotelian philosophy, it is of no importance whether Plato or Aristotle ever lived. For the mystical practice of an Indian, Persian, Chinese, or Neo-Platonic mystic it is a matter of indifference whether Rama, Buddha, Laotse, or Porphyrius are myths or not. The mystic has no personal relation to them. It is not here a question of somebody telling me the truth which of myself I cannot find, but of my finding an access to the depths of the world in the depths of my soul. And everywhere the tendency is to eliminate personality. Even where religion does not have this mystical character, it has no relation to an historical person, who communicates himself to me. That is the characteristic essence of the Christian faith alone. Even where a prophet plays the role of a mediator of divine truth, as for example in Islam, the religious act is not directed toward him but toward his teaching or message. But the Christian does not believe in the teachings of Jesus - which would not be Christian faith, but general religion - he believes in Christ Himself as being the Word of God.
