A Quote by Heraclitus on character, choice, colors, contentment, day, destiny, guidance, integrity, principles, and soul

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way.

Heraclitus (c.540 - c.475 BC)

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on balance, emotion, family, limitations, needs, principles, solution, and work

As a principle-centered person you try to stand apart from the emotion of the situation and from other factors that would act on you, and evaluate the options. Looking at the balanced whole--the work needs, the family needs, the other needs that may be involved, and the possible implications of the various alternatives -- you'll try to come up with the best solution taking all factors into consideration. We are limited but we can push back the borders of our limitations.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on apologies, character, heart, order, pity, principles, security, and strength

It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on belief, character, ethics, experience, happiness, learning, life, people, principles, and success

The character ethic, which I believe to be the foundation of success, teaches that there are basic principles of effective living, and that people can only experience true success and enduring happiness as they learn and integrate these principles into their basic character.

A Quote by Zimmermann on ambition, egotism, good, imagination, indolence, luxury, nature, pride, principles, and rest

If you ask me which is the real hereditary sin of human nature, do you imagine I shall answer pride, or luxury, or ambition, or egotism? No; I shall say indolence. Who conquers indolence will conquer all the rest. Indeed all good principles must stagnate without mental activity.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on discovery, freedom, honor, justice, manners, passion, principles, science, and sharing

Our inheritance of well-founded, slowly conceived codes of honor, morals and manners, the passionate convictions which so many hundreds of millions share together of the principles of freedom and justice, are far more precious to us than anything which scientific discoveries could bestow.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on certainty, life, and principles

There is always much to be said for not attempting more than you can do, and for making a certainty of what you try. But this principle, like others in life, has its exceptions.

A Quote by William Tyler Page on adoption, america, belief, constitution, country, democracy, duty, enemies, equality, fortune, freedom, government, humanity, justice, laws, life, love, nations, people, principles, respect, sacrifice, and support

The American's Creed adopted by the House of Representatives, April 3, 1918 I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect Union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom; equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend if against all enemies.

William Tyler Page (1868 - 1942)
