A Quote by Emily Saliers on children, doctors, mountains, and questions

I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain There's more than one answer to these questions pointing me in a crooked line. The less I seek my source for some definitive The closer I am to fine.

A Quote by unknown on birds, god, home, life, questions, and seasons

The question, "Which is the happiest season of life?" was asked of an aged man. And he replied: "When spring comes, and in the soft air the buds are breaking on the trees, and they are covered with blossoms, I think, 'How beautiful is spring'; and when summer comes and covers the trees with its heavy foliage, and singing birds are among the branches, I think, 'How beautiful is summer.' When autumn loads them with golden fruit, and their leaves bear the gorgeous tint of frost, I think, 'How beautiful is autumn.' And when it is severe winter, and there is neither foliage nor fruit, then I look up through the leafless branches as I never could until now, and see the stars shine in God's home."

A Quote by unknown on caring, friendship, home, and questions

There are many who wait for their ships to come in, For their ships to come in from the sea. This question they ask as they watch and wait: "Will a ship come home to me?" The answer comes swift from a voyager old, A voyager weathered and gray: "Have you sent forth a craft with a cargo, friend? A craft that might some in today?" There are many who long for their ships to come in, That they from their cares may be free; But how could a ship come home to them When they've sent no craft to sea?

A Quote by unknown on choice, clothes, deception, duty, effort, enemies, friendship, immortality, justice, labor, life, energy, mind, people, pleasure, popularity, questions, sacrifice, self-sacrifice, society, vices, women, and path

According to the ancient Greeks, when Hercules was a boy, just reaching the period of life when there was a question in his mind which path he should pursue, he went forth by himself and sat down and meditated. There came to him someone in the form of a beautiful young woman. "Hercules, I know what you want," she said "the path that I will point out to you will bring pleasure, will bring you constant place in society, will bring you the choice things of life, to eat and to drink and clothing to wear. You shall be popular in the society in which you shall move, and your whole life will be one constant round of pleasure." "What is your name?" Hercules asked. "My enemies call me Vice, but my friends call me Pleasure," she replied. Then there appeared to him another beautiful woman and she said: "Hercules, I shall not deceive you; the path I shall point out to you will be a path of labor, a path of toil, a path of self-sacrifice, a path in which you must devote a great deal of your effort and energy; you will have to forget yourself; you will have to serve your friends; you will have to serve the people of Greece; but if you will take this path and pursue it, although it may bring to you much toil and privation and many sacrifices, you shall become immortal." Hercules asked: "What is your name?" She replied: "My name is Duty."

A Quote by Joe Darion on bravery, chastity, courage, dreams, heart, hell, impossibility, lies, love, peace, purity, questions, rest, sorrow, and world

To dream the impossible dream To fight the unbeatable foe To bear with unbearable sorrow To run where the brave dare not go To right the unrightable wrong To love pure and chaste from afar To try when your arms are too weary To reach the unreachable star This is my quest, to follow the star No matter how hopeless, no matter how far To fight for the right without question or pause To be willing to pass into hell for a heavenly cause And know if I'll only be true to the glorious quest That my heart lies peaceful and calm When I'm laid to my rest And the world will be better for this That one man scorned and covered in scars Still strove with his last ounce of courage To reach the unreachable star This is my quest, to follow the star No matter how hopeless, no matter how far To fight for the right without question or pause And to dream the impossible dream.

Whoever fears to submit any question to the test of free discussion, loves his own opinion more that the truth.

A Quote by unknown on confidence, fatherhood, jokes, life, motherhood, parenthood, questions, respect, and secrets

To give the white-haired father or mother not only respect, but confidence, to tell the joke and the secret to them first, to accord them cordially the central place in the merrymaking, may seem trivial matters, yet they are not trivial to those who, in the twilight of life, begin to think they are useless or forgotten, and to question whether they shall be missed when they shall go out into the nearing night. Courtesy is but a little thing and costs nothing, and if it is due to any one, it is surely due to the aged among us, especially when these are our parents.
