A Quote by Prophet Muhammad on blessings, deed, earth, evil, forgiveness, god, good, and reward

He who does a good deed will have ten times the amount of blessings, and I [God] shall give more, but he who does an evil deed will have an equivalent reward of evil, or I shall grant forgiveness. If anyone draws the length of a span near Me, I shall draw the length of a cubit near him, and if anyone draws the length of a cubit near Me, I shall draw the length of a fathom near him. If anyone comes to Me walking I shall come to him at a run, and if anyone meets me with sins of the size of the earth, but has not associated anything with Me, I shall meet him a similar amount of forgiveness.

Muhammad (570 - 632)

A Quote by Michael Barach on culture, fatherhood, gifts, ideas, punishment, reward, risk, and value

My father's real gift and value to U.S. Shoe is not in 'properly segmenting the market'; rather, he has created a beautiful corporate culture which rewards risk taking, which supports rather than punishes those who have a bad year or two, which allows ideas to percolate upward.

A Quote by Thomas Babington, Lord Macaulay on duty, economics, government, idleness, improvement, intelligence, laws, nations, peace, people, punishment, rest, and reward

Our rulers will best promote the improvement of the nation by strictly confining themselves to their own legitimate duties, by leaving capital to find its most lucrative course, commodities their fair price, industry and intelligence their natural reward, idleness and folly their natural punishment, by maintaining peace, by defending property, by diminishing the price of law, and by observing strict economy in every department of the state. Let the Government do this: the People will assuredly do the rest.

A Quote by Leonardo da Vinci on art, children, cruelty, motherhood, nature, reward, and slavery

O neglectful Nature, wherefore art thou thus partial, becoming to some of thy children a tender and benignant mother, to others a most cruel and ruthless stepmother? I see thy children given into slavery to others without ever receiving any benefit, and in lieu of any reward for the services they have done for them they are repaid by the severest punishments.

College graduates who have kept on with self-education generally are the ones who reap the richest harvests of material rewards, and even more important, the great intangible satisfactions of life.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on achievement, greed, immortality, obstacles, reward, virtue, and wealth

Greed for enlightenment and immortality is no different than greed for material wealth. It is self-centered and dualistic, and thus an obstacle to true attainment. Therefore these states are never achieved by those who covet them; rather, they are the reward of the virtuous.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on behavior, conformity, expectation, nature, originality, reward, and service

The fourth (of the four cardinal virtues) is supportiveness: this manifests as service to others without expectation of reward. (Paraphrased: Such service is not a mere conforming to some external rule of behavior, but instead a manifestation of your original nature).

A Quote by Lao Tzu on evolution, freedom, gifts, reward, spirituality, understanding, and taoism

Understand this if nothing else: spiritual freedom and oneness with the Tao are not randomly bestowed gifts, but the rewards of conscious self-transformation and self-evolution.
