A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on art, happiness, learning, and rudeness

Each has his own happiness in his hands, as the artist handles the rude clay he seeks to reshape it into a figure; yet it is the same with this art as with all others: only the capacity for it is innate; the art itself must be learned and painstakingly practiced.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

A Quote by I Corinthians 13:4-8 on anger, boasts, envy, evil, failure, hope, kindness, love, patience, rudeness, and truth

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

A Quote by Henry Giles on certainty, machines, rudeness, soul, and work

Man must work. That is certain as the sun. But he may work grudgingly or he may work gratefully; he may work as a man, or he may work as a machine. There is no work so rude, that he may not exalt it; no work so impassive, that he may not breathe a soul into it; no work so dull that he may not enliven it.

A Quote by Harry Emerson Fosdick, D.D. on age, atoms, blessings, christianity, courage, day, failure, faith, god, hope, men, nations, patience, and rudeness

It is going to be a long, hard haul; it will require patience, courage, faith that hangs on when hope fails, if we are to tame the rude barbarity of man, so that the atomic age becomes a blessing, not a curse. There never was such a day for the Christian gospel. God help us all in these years ahead to make that gospel live in men and nations!

A Quote by Harriet Beecher Stowe on anger, peace, rudeness, and stillness

When winds are raging o'er the upper ocean And billows wild contend with angry roar, 'T is said, far down beneath the wild commotion That peaceful stillness reigneth evermore. Far, far beneath, the noise of tempests dieth And silver waves chime ever peacefully, And no rude storm, how fierce soe'er it flyeth Disturbs the Sabbath of that deeper sea.

Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811 - 1896)

A Quote by Elizabeth Wordsworth on cleverness, good, people, rudeness, thought, and world

If all the good people were clever And all the clever people were good The world would be nicer than ever We thought that it possibly could. But somehow, 'tis seldom or ner The two hit it off as they should The good are so harsh to the clever The clever so rude to the good!

A Quote by Bartolomé de Las Casas on good, kindness, life, love, men, order, persuasion, rudeness, and world

It clearly appears that there are no races in the world, however rude, uncultivated, barbarous, gross, or almost brutal they may be, who cannot be persuaded and brought to a good order and way of life, and made domestic, mild and tractable, provided . . . the method that is proper and natural to men is used; that is, love and gentleness and kindness.

Bartolome de Las Casas (1474 - 1566)
