A Quote by Newell Dwight Hillis on leadership, politicians, secrets, self-reliance, solitude, time, world, and youth

Self-reliance can turn a salesman into a merchant; a politician into a statesman; an attorney into a jurist; an unknown youth into a great leader. All are to be tomorrow's big leaders - those who in solitude sit above the clang and dust of time, with the world's secret trembling on their lips.

A Quote by Louis (Lajos) Kossuth on humility, men, quality, rest, self-reliance, and wisdom

Humility is the part of wisdom, and is most becoming in men. But let no one discourage self-reliance; it is, of all the rest, the greatest quality of true manliness.

A Quote by H. L. Mencken on courage, facts, inferiority, liberty, lies, love, mind, quality, resolution, self-reliance, and wonder

The fact is that liberty, in any true sense, is a concept that lies quite beyond the reach of the inferior man's mind. And no wonder, for genuine liberty demands of its votaries a quality he lacks completely, and that is courage. The man who loves it must be willing to fight for it; blood, said Jefferson, is its natural manure. Liberty means self-reliance, it means resolution, it means the capacity for doing without . . . the average man doesn't want to be free. He wants to be safe.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on circumstances, crisis, economics, future, learning, needs, preparation, principles, reason, self-reliance, spirituality, unemployment, and welfare

More than ever before, we need to learn and apply the principles of economic self-reliance. We do not know when the crisis involving sickness or unemployment may affect our own circumstances. We do know that the Lord has decreed global calamities for the future and has warned and forewarned us to be prepared. For this reason the Brethren have repeatedly stressed a 'back to basics' program for temporal and spiritual welfare.

A Quote by Douglas Jerrold on conformity, love, names, self-reliance, and virtue

The virtue in most request is conformity. Self-reliance is its aversion. It loves not realities and creators, but names and customs.

A Quote by Anne Brontë on losing, power, respect, self-reliance, self-respect, world, and path

I would not send a poor girl into the world, . . . ignorant of the snares that beset her path; nor would I watch and guard her, till, deprived of self-respect and self-reliance, she lost the power or the will to watch and guard herself .
