A Quote by William George Jordan on ideas, life, preparation, and speech

The man who is slipshod and thoughtless in his daily speech, whose vocabulary is a collection of anemic commonplaces, whose repetitions of phrases and extravagance of interjections act but as feeble disguises to his lack of ideas, will never be brilliant on an occasion when he longs to outshine the stars. Living at one's best is constant preparation for instant use.

William Jordan

Soul Gathers Force It is possible, when the future is dim, when our depressed faculties can form no bright ideas of the perfection and happiness of a better world,-it is possible still to cling to the conviction of God's merciful purpose towards His creatures, of His parental goodness even in suffering, still to feel that the path of duty, though trodden with a heavy heart, leads to peace; still to be true to conscience; still to do our work, to resist temptation, to be useful, though with diminished energy, to give up our wills when we cannot rejoice under God's mysterious providence. In this patient, though uncheered obedience, we become prepared for light. The soul gathers force.

William Ellery Channing (1780 - 1842)

A Quote by William Arthur Ward on achievement, belief, decisions, listening, persistence, preparation, sleep, study, and work

A Winner's Blueprint for Achievement BELIEVE while others are doubting. PLAN while others are playing. STUDY while others are sleeping. DECIDE while others are delaying. PREPARE while others are daydreaming. BEGIN while others are procrastinating. WORK while others are wishing. SAVE while others are wasting. LISTEN while others are talking. SMILE while others are frowning. COMMEND while others are criticizing. PERSIST while others are quitting.

William Arthur Ward

It is better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.

A Quote by Wendell Lewis Wilkie on agreement, colors, freedom, and preparation

Freedom is an indivisible word. If we want to enjoy it, and fight for it, we must be prepared to extend it or everyone, whether they are rich or poor, whether they agree with us or not, no matter what their race or the color of their skin.

Wendell Lewis Wilkie (1892 - 1944)

A Quote by Walter Lippmann on achievement, authority, cleverness, cynicism, destruction, duty, freedom, heroism, indifference, liberty, life, men, order, preparation, sacrifice, spirit, thought, tragedy, weakness, world, and elightenment

Without order or authority in the spirit of man the free way of life leads through weakness, disorganization, self-indulgence, and moral indifference to the destruction of freedom itself. The tragic ordeal through which the Western world is passing was prepared in the long period of easy liberty, during which men . . . forgot that their freedom was achieved by heroic sacrifice. . . . They forgot that their rights were founded on their duties. . . . They thought it clever to be cynical, enlightened to be unbelieving, and sensible to be soft.

Walter Lippmann (1889 - 1974)

A Quote by Victor L. Brown on attitude, bitterness, circumstances, eternity, faith, family, good, hope, injustice, knowledge, life, optimism, pity, preparation, trying, and words

What bitterness could have enveloped them. They could have taken the attitude that the Lord was unjust. They had lived good lives. Why did this have to happen to a boy with such bright prospects? But rather, this was their attitude, in their own words: "We shall be eternally grateful for the thirteen wonderful years that we were privileged to have him in our midst. We know that we are blessed in the knowledge that we are sealed as an eternal family. We know that Carl was preparing to fill a mission. We know that he was prepared for that mission and that he is now filling it." No self-pity here, but rather an attitude of faith and hope and optimism, even under the most trying of circumstances!

Victor L. Brown (1914 - 1995)
