A Quote by Fyodor Dostoevsky on paradise, purity, nature, gifts, and life

Look around you at the gifts of God, the clear sky, the pure air, the tender grass, the birds; nature is beautiful and sinless, and we, only we, are godless and foolish, and we don't understand that life is a paradise, for we have only to understand that and it will at once be fulfilled in all its beauty, we shall embrace each other and weep.

Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821 - 1881)

A Quote by Marian Wright Edelman on teach, love, give, life, purity, responsibility, generation, hope, and obligation

If you as parents cut corners, your children will too. If you lie, they will too. If you spend all your money on yourselves and tithe no portion of it for charities, colleges, churches, synagogues, and civic causes, your children won't either. And if parents snicker at racial and gender jokes, another generation will pass on the poison adults still have not had the courage to snuff out.

Marian Wright Edelman (1939 -)

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on flower, beauty, sweetness, courage, purity, strength, and smell

So behave that the odor of your actions may enhance the general sweetness of the atmosphere, that when we behold or scent a flower, we may not be reminded how inconsistent your deeds are with it; for all odor is but one form of advertisement of a moral quality, and if fair actions had not been performed, the lily would not smell sweet. The foul slime stands for the sloth and vice of man, the decay of humanity; the fragrant flower that springs from it, for the purity and courage which are immortal.

Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

A Quote by Tama J. Kieves on spiritual marketing, purity, integrity, inspiration, do what you love, follow your bliss, and law of attraction

Don't pressure yourself to target a market.  Hit the mark instead.  Pay homage to your own connection.  Quantity flocks to quality and quality comes from purity.   Purity wails.  Integrity taps a nerve.  Inspiration slips beneath the skin of yoru skin and turns disinterested strangers into warm-bodied kin.

Tama Kieves

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on virtue, wisdom, and purity

On life's journey faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter, wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life, nothing can destroy him.

A Quote by Mother Teresa on joy, purity, and love

These are very unskillful comparisons to represent so precious a thing, but I am not clever enough to think out any more: the real truth is that joy makes the soul so forgetful of itself, and of everything, that it is conscious of nothing, and able to speak of nothing, save of that which proceeds from its joy… Let us join with this soul, my daughters all. Why should we want to be more sensible than she? What can give us greater pleasure than to do as she does? And may all the creatures join with us for ever and ever. Amen, amen, amen.

Mother Teresa (1910 - 1998)

A Quote by Leonardo da Vinci on inaction, mind, purity, water, and weather

Iron rusts from disuse; stagnant water loses its purity and in cold weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigor of the mind.

Leonardo da Vinci (1452 - 1519)
