A Quote by unknown on day, relaxation, and time

Someone asked an executive one day why he kept a bowl of goldfish on his desk. I find it relaxing to have something around here that doesn't complain or ask for a raise every time it opens its mouth.

A Quote by Robyn Davidson on freedom, gambling, habits, impossibility, learning, energy, manufacturing, needs, relaxation, security, and struggle

To be free one needs constant and unrelenting vigilance over one's weaknesses. A vigilance which requires a moral energy most of us are incapable of manufacturing. We relax back into the moulds of habit. They are secure, they bind us and keep us contained at the expense of freedom. To break the moulds, to be heedless of the seductions of security is an impossible struggle, but one of the few that count. To be free is to learn, to test yourself constantly, to gamble.

A Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson on belief, change, devil, generosity, justice, mind, politics, and relaxation

These are my politics: to change what we can; to better what we can; but still to bear in mind that man is but a devil weakly fettered by some generous beliefs and impositions; and for no word however sounding, and no cause however just and pious, to relax the stricture on these bonds.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on death, life, people, relaxation, solitude, sorrow, and spirit

The sorrowful spirit finds relaxation in solitude. It abhors people, as a wounded deer deserts the herd and lives in a cave until it is healed or dead.

A Quote by Jean de La Bruyére on chance, day, facts, justice, life, mistakes, mountains, people, relaxation, time, and trouble

If I had my life to live over I'd like to make more mistakes next time. I'd relax. I would limber up. I would be sillier than I have been this trip. I would take fewer things seriously. I would take more chances. I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would perhaps have more actual trouble, but I'd have fewer imaginary ones. You see, I'm one of those people who live sensibly and sanely hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I've had my moments, and if I had to do it over again, I'd have more of them. In fact, I'd try to have nothing else. Just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of each day.

Jean de La Bruyere (1645 - 1696)

A Quote by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis on day, home, husbands, life, relaxation, and work

I think the best thing I can do is to be a distraction. A husband lives and breathes his work all day long. If he comes home to more table thumping, how can the poor man ever relax?

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
