A Quote by Gordon MacDonald on absence, confusion, direction, emptiness, encouragement, garden, god, growth, guidance, metaphor, order, peace, potential, quiet, sharing, spirit, spirituality, tranquility, and wisdom

For me the appropriate metaphor for the inner spiritual centre is a garden, a place of potential peace and tranquility. This garden is a place where the Spirit of God comes to make self-disclosure to share wisdom, to give affirmation or rebuke, to provide encouragement, and to give direction and guidance. When this garden is in proper order, it is a quiet place, and there is an absence of busyness, of defiling noise, of confusion. The inner garden is a delicate place, and if not properly maintained it will be quickly overrun by intrusive under-growth. God does not often walk in disordered gardens. And that is why inner gardens that are ignored are said to be empty.

A Quote by George C. Scott on potential, presidency, and statistics

General Turgidson rants about the tremendous 'overkill' potential of the nuclear offensive while minimizing the Soviet retaliatory counter-attack casualty statistics: "Mr. President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed, but I do say no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops, uh, depending on the breaks."

A Quote by Dr. Rufus E. Clement on education, force, opportunity, potential, power, and suffering

Race tensions thrive on the restricted educational opportunities for Southern Negroes. When earning power is limited or foreshortened by lack of education, whole populations suffer. A potential great producing force, as well as a large possible market for goods, is thus being ignored.

A Quote by Dan Brent Burt on feeling, ideas, information, meaning, potential, and words

Selling is communicating and communicating is a complex activity. It requires the exchange of information, ideas and feelings with minimal distortion. The meanings of the words and thoughts conveyed to and from your potential customers must be received exactly as conceived.

A Quote by Bruce Bliven on danger, future, hope, learning, lies, mankind, nature, past, potential, and world

Perhaps the most important lesson the world has learned in the past fifty years is that it is not true that "human nature is unchangeable." Human nature, on the contrary, can be changed with the greatest ease and to the utmost possible extent. If in this lies huge potential danger, it also contains some of the brightest hopes that we have for the future of mankind.

A Quote by Bill Lee on awareness, belief, body, change, death, difficulty, love, mortality, potential, reality, and universe

During those moments on the pitching rubber, when you have every pitch at your command working to its highest potential, you are your own universe. For hours after the game, this sense of completeness lingers. Then you sink back to what we humorously refer to as reality. Your body aches and your muscles cry out. You feel your mortality. That can be a difficult thing to handle. I believe pitchers come in touch with death a lot sooner than other players. We are more aware of the subtle changes taking place in our body and are unable to overlook the tell-tale hints that we are not going to last on this planet forever. Every pitcher has to be a little bit in love with death. There's a subconscious fatalism there.

A Quote by Bill Blackman on people and potential

When we won't consider suggestions, we reject our own potential - but we have a right to expect people to be tactful.

A Quote by Aldous Leonard Huxley on potential, sculpture, silence, wisdom, and wit

Silence is as full of potential wisdom and wit as the unhewn marble of great sculpture. The silent bear no witness against themselves.
