A Quote by Walt Mason on anguish, present, and worth

It's hard to look pleasant when anguish is present, and yet it is strictly worth while; Not all of your scowling and fussing and growling can show off your grit like a smile.

Walt Mason

A Quote by Walt Whitman on divinity, effort, originality, people, poets, religion, present, and time

Perhaps the efforts of the true poets, founders, religions, literatures, all ages, have been, and ever will be, our time and times to come, essentially the same - to bring people back from their present strayings and sickly abstractions, to the costless, average, divine, original concrete.

Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892)

A Quote by W. Beran Wolfe on fiction, future, habits, life, men, men and women, opportunity, present, unhappiness, and women

One important source of unhappiness is the habit of putting off living to some fictional future date. Men and women are constantly making themselves unhappy because in deferring their lives to the future they lose sight of the the present and its golden opportunities for rich living.

A Quote by unknown on bitterness, certainty, day, people, and present

Certain cereals and pulses (legumes) were domesticated in very ancient times. In about 8000 BC in the Fertile Crescent of the Near and Middle East (present-day Syria, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Jordan, Israel), wheats, barley, lentil, pea, bitter vetch, chick-pea, and possibly faba bean, were brought into cultivation by the Neolithic people. These crops spread from the point of origin. Archaeological evidence indicates that the wheats, and some of the legumes, had reached Greece by 6000 BC and evidence of their presence within that millennium has been found in the Danube Basin, the Nile valley, and the Indian subcontinent (Pakistan). Dispersal continued throughout Europe, the crops reaching Britain and Scandinavia in 4,000-2,000 BC.

A Quote by unknown on beginning, day, learning, opportunity, people, present, time, and work

A great lesson, which people should learn, is to do their work at the beginning of the day when they have the time before them, instead of at the end of the day when most of the time is gone beyond recall. If we wait, our opportunities may be gone; the present is the hour for improving privileges which, once gone, will return no more.

A Quote by unknown on future, language, life, money, problems, schools, present, and wisdom

She taught English in high school when a great deal of emphasis was placed upon the mechanics of the grammar of the language. We remember her best, however, for her keen wisdom in facing life with its problems. She used to say: "A money-lender serves you in the present tense; lends to you in the conditional mood; keeps you in the subjunctive; and ruins you in the future."
