preparation

A Quote by Richard Cobden on education, fear, freedom, hope, liberty, men, people, preparation, thought, and war

Let it never be forgotten that it is not by means of war that states are rendered fit for the enjoyment of constitutional freedom; on the contrary, whilst terror and bloodshed reign in the land, involving men's minds in the extremities of hopes and fears, there can be no process of thought, no education going on, by which alone can a people be prepared for the enjoyment of rational liberty.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on doubt, duty, fear, life, performance, preparation, and work

Don't waste life in doubts and fears; spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour's duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.

A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on difficulty, love, preparation, proof, and work

For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of our tasks; the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.

A Quote by Francesco Petrarca Petrarch on books, death, desires, humor, melancholy, nature, past, preparation, questions, readiness, secrets, soul, suffering, present, and wit

Books come at my call and return when I desire them; they are never out of humor and they answer all my questions with readiness. Some present in review before me the events of past ages; others reveal to me the secrets of Nature. These teach me how to live, and those how to die; these dispel my melancholy by their mirth, and amuse me by their sallies of wit. Some there are who prepare my soul to suffer everything, to desire nothing, and to become thoroughly acquainted with itself. In a word, they open the door to all the arts and sciences.

Petrarca Petrarch (1304 - 1374)

Since we live in an age of innovation, a practical education must prepare a man for work that does not yet exist and cannot yet be clearly defined.

A Quote by Pearl Mae Bailey on anticipation, cooking, facts, good, preparation, and spontaneity

The fact is that it takes more than ingredients and technique to cook a good meal. A good cook puts something of himself into the preparation - he cooks with enjoyment, anticipation, spontaneity, and he is willing to experiment.

Pearl Bailey (1918 - 1990)
