A Quote by unknown on jobs, money, play, politicians, and politics

Why are we surprised when politicians play politics? It's not like they are supposed to be real adults . . . they are, after all, politicians and don't have real jobs and aren't playing around with their money.

A Quote by unknown on heart, play, secrets, work, world, and worth

Nobody knows what a boy is worth, a boy at his work or play; a boy who whistles around the place or laughs in an artless way. Nobody knows what a boy is worth, and the world must wait and see, for every man in an honored place is a boy that used to be. Nobody knows what a boy is worth, a boy with a face aglow, for hid in his heart there are secrets deep not even the wisest know. Nobody knows what a boy is worth, a boy with his bare, white feet, so have a smile and a kindly word for every boy you meet.

A Quote by unknown on beginning, character, gold, honesty, justice, play, time, and wealth

Man's measurement A man's no bigger than the way he treats his fellow man! This standard has his measure been since time itself began. He's measured not by tithes or cruet, high sounding though they be; Nor by the gold that's put aside; nor by his sanctity. He's measured not by social rank, when character's the test; Nor by his earthly pomp and show, displaying wealth possessed. He's measured by his justice, right, his fairness at his play, His squareness in all dealings made, his honest upright way. These are his measures, ever near to serve him when they can; For man's no bigger than the way he treats his fellow man!

A Quote by unknown on books, defeat, friendship, kindness, laughter, leisure, play, simplicity, spirit, time, and trying

You tell on yourself by the friends you seek, By the very manner in which you speak, By the way you employ your leisure time, By the use you make of dollar and dime. You tell what you are by the things you wear, By the spirit in which you your burdens bear, By the kind of things at which you laugh, By the records you play on your phonograph. You tell what you are by the way you walk, By the things of which you delight to talk, By the manner in which you bear defeat, By so simple a thing as how you eat. By the books you choose from a well-filled shelf- In these ways, and more, you tell on yourself. So really there's not a grain of sense In trying to keep up a false pretense.

A Quote by unknown on awareness, day, dreams, earth, future, gifts, god, happiness, laughter, love, music, opportunity, play, power, quiet, selfishness, soul, success, time, wisdom, work, and youth

Take Time Take time to think- It is the source of all power. Take time to read- It is the fountain of wisdom. Take time to play- It is the source of perpetual youth. Take time to be quiet- It is the opportunity to seek God. Take time to be aware- It is the opportunity to help others. Take time to love and be loved- It is God's greatest gift. Take time to laugh- It is the music of the soul. Take time to be friendly- It is the road to happiness. Take time to dream- It is what the future is made of. Take time to pray- It is the greatest power on earth. Take time to give- It is too short a day to be selfish. Take time to work- It is the price of success. There is a time for everything. . . .

A Quote by unknown on day, deception, god, grace, heart, life, play, and work

You don't have to tell how you live each day, You don't have to say if you work or you play, A tried, true barometer serves in the place, However you live, it will show in your face. The false, the deceit that you bear in your heart Will not stay inside where it first got a start; For sinew and blood are a thin veil of lace- What you wear in your heart, you wear in your face. If your life is unselfish, if for others you live, For not what you get, but how much you can give; If you live close to God in his infinite grace- You don't have to tell it, it shows in your face.

A Quote by unknown on animals, balance, birds, earth, nature, plants, play, and world

There are 8,600 species of birds in the world today. They are found everywhere. Birds play a vital role in the balance of nature. They eat insects, pests and small animals. Fruit eating birds are best for scattering seeds for these plants. Seed eating birds digest seeds and in so doing keep millions of weeds from the earth. . . . Birds have between 1,000 and 25,000 feathers.

A Quote by unknown on balance, control, disease, garden, life, nature, play, and seriousness

Bats are in serious decline nearly everywhere. Worldwide, there are almost a thousand different kinds of bats which comprise nearly one fourth of all mammal species. Of the 43 species living in the U.S. and Canada, nearly 40 percent are endangered or are candidates for such status. . . . Bats may eat their own weight in insects in a single night. They also control such garden pests such as ants, beetles and disease carrying mosquitoes. As the primary predator of night-flying insects, bats play an important role in this balance of nature.
