A Quote by Ayn Rand on belief, life, obsession, religion, and songs

If a life could have a theme song - and I believe every worthwhile one has - mine is a religion, an obsession, a mania or all of these expressed in one word - individualism. I was born with that obsession, and I've never seen and do not know now a cause more worthy, more misunderstood, more seemingly hopeless and tragically needed.

Ayn Rand (1905 - 1982)

A Quote by Austin Farrar on charity, common sense, death, fanaticism, kindness, knowledge, life, peace, power, religion, virtue, and wisdom

'Knowledge, without common sense,' says Lee, is 'folly; without method, it is waste; without kindness, it is fanaticism; without religion, it is death.' But with common sense, it is wisdom with method, it is power; with charity, it is beneficence; with religion, it is virtue, and life, and peace.

A Quote by Arthur Paul Patterson on appreciation, decisions, dependence, diversity, life, religion, spirituality, time, variety, vision, water, and work

The physical rhythm of life established through sensitivity to qualitative time mirrors the ebb and flow of water. Maintaining rhythm is dependent on our daily decisions concerning vocation, recreation and work. Using the image of water roots Watershed Spirituality in diversity and pluralism. Life in a "variety of forms" implies an emphasis on inter-religious appreciation and the universalist vision.

A Quote by Arthur H. Compton on courage, deed, discipline, faith, good, hope, lies, life, meaning, nature, needs, religion, science, scientists, thinking, vision, and world

Faith gives the courage to live and do. Scientists, with their disciplined thinking, like others, need a basis for the good life, for aspiration, for courage to do great deeds. They need a faith to live by. The hope of the world lies in those who have such faith and who use the methods of science to make their visions become real. Visions and hope and faith are not part of science. They are beyond the nature that science knows. Of such is the religion that gives meaning to life.

A Quote by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov on birth, change, death, love, politics, religion, and world

I still lack a political, religious and philosophical world view - I change it every month - and so I'll have to limit myself to descriptions of how my heroes love, marry, give birth, die, and how they speak.
