A Quote by J. B. Phillips on books, christianity, controversy, practice, projects, sacred, study, thought, work, and worship

It is a singularly unpleasant thought that a book about Holy Communion is more likely to produce disagreement and controversy than one written on almost any other Christian subject. It seems a truly terrible thing that this Sacred Appointment, which was surely meant to unite, in actual practice divides Christians more sharply than any other part of their worship. Christians of various denominations may, and frequently do, work together on social projects, they may study the Scripture together, and they may ... pray together. But the moment attendance at the Lord's Table is suggested, up go the denominational barriers...

J. B. Phillips (1906 - 1982)

A Quote by Ivy Lee on advice, day, order, presidency, projects, secrets, and worry

If you want to know the secret to getting the most from your day . . . then simply refer to the advice given to Charles Schwab, the president of US Steel, at the early part of this century: "Write down the most important things you have to do tomorrow. Now, number them in the order of their true importance. The first thing tomorrow morning, start working on an item Number 1, and stay with it until completed. Then take item Number 2 the same way. Then Number 3, and so on. Don't worry if you don't complete everything on the schedule. At least you will have completed the most important projects before getting to the less important ones."

A Quote by Gary Zukav on awareness, guidance, projects, soul, and teachers

The number of teachers and guides that a soul has depends upon what it seeks to accomplish and its level of awareness. Souls that take upon themselves projects of more magnitude bring to themselves more assistance.

A Quote by Cus D'Amato on cowardice, fear, heroism, and projects

The hero and the coward both feel the same thing, but the hero uses his fear, projects it onto his opponent, while the coward runs. It's the same thing, fear, but it's what you do with it that matters.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on fear, projects, and understanding

Because the European does not know his own unconscious, he does not understand the East and projects it into everything he fears and despises in himself.
