A Quote by R. Palmer on age, eternity, hope, melancholy, reward, world, and youth

A comfortable old age is the reward of a weII-spent youth. Instead of its bringing sad and melancholy prospects of decay, it should give us hopes of eternal youth in a better world.

A Quote by R. H. Cabell on adventure, business, day, deed, hypocrisy, mistakes, reform, reward, selfishness, sentimentality, thinking, and words

I like business because it is competitive, because it rewards deeds rather than words. I like business because it compels earnestness and does not permit me to neglect today's task while thinking about tomorrow. I like business because it undertakes to please, not reform; because it is honestly selfish, thereby avoiding hypocrisy and sentimentality. I like business because it promptly penalizes mistakes, shiftlessness and inefficiency, while rewarding well those who give it the best they have in them. Lastly, I like business because each day is a fresh adventure.

A Quote by Princess Diana on change, consequences, day, expectation, kindness, knowledge, punishment, reward, and risk

Perhaps we're too embarrassed to change or too frightened of the consequences of showing that we actually care. But why not risk it anyway? Begin Today. Carry out a random act of seemingly senseless kindness, with no expectation or reward or punishment. Safe in the knowledge that one day, someone somewhere might do the same for you.

A Quote by Paul Elmer More on defense, god, good, humility, ignorance, indifference, laws, learning, men, reward, and virtue

We are born knowing nothing and with much striving we learn but a little; yet all the while we are bound by laws that hearken to no plea of ignorance, and measure out their rewards and punishments with calm indifference. In such a state, humility is the virtue of men, and their only defense; to walk humbly with God, never doubting, whatever befall, that His will is good, and that His law is right.

Paul Elmer More (1864 - 1937)

A Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes on ambition, fortune, gold, good, honor, indifference, learning, life, passion, reward, and youth

Through our great good fortune, in our youth our hearts were touched with fire. It was given us to learn at the outset that life is a profound and passionate thing. While we are permitted to scorn nothing but indifference, and do not pretend to undervalue the worldly rewards of ambition, we have seen with our own eyes, beyond and above the gold fields, the snowy heights of honor, and it is for us to bear the report to those who come after us.

Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809 - 1894)

A Quote by Norman H. Hansen on awards, garden, learning, nature, peace, reward, satisfaction, spirit, teachers, understanding, and path

Seek to understand what draws you to the garden. You may discover greater rewards than the blue ribbons awarded for the biggest pumpkin or the best preserves. You may find the garden becomes a teacher and crop "failures" become lessons learned. However big or small your garden is, if you allow nature to touch your spirit, gardening will bring returns of peace, satisfaction, and well-being for as long as you continue to wander the garden path.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on good, mercy, order, reward, soul, and truth

Mercy can purge the soul of sin, making room for a fresh start. Truth is vital in order that we have an unvarying standard by which to determine what we are to be and to do and what we are to rid ourselves of. All the cardinal virtues, therefore, carry their own intrinsic as well as outward reward. A merciful man does do good to his own soul.

Neal Maxwell (1926 -)

A Quote by Nathaniel Branden on achievement, belief, life, opposites, popularity, reward, and self-esteem

To preserve an unclouded capacity for the enjoyment of life is an unusual moral and psychological achievement. Contrary to popular belief, it is not the prerogative of mindlessness, but the exact opposite: It is the reward of self-esteem.
