A Quote by Thomas Henry Huxley on certainty, courage, evil, life, pain, and sharing

I cannot but think that he who finds a certain proportion of pain and evil inseparably woven up in the life of the very worms, will bear his own share with more courage and submission.

A Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on fate, joy, sharing, trouble, and world

Trouble is the next best thing to enjoyment; there is no fate in the world so horrible as to have no share in either its joy or sorrows.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on concern, criticism, experience, fiction, imagination, kindness, life, sharing, tragedy, and work

However intense my experience, I am conscious of the presence and criticism of a part of me, which, as it were, is not a part of me, but a spectator, sharing no experience, but taking note of it, and that is no more I than it is you. When the lay, it may be the tragedy, of life is over, the spectator goes his way. It was a kind of fiction, a work of the imagination only, so far as he was concerned.

Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

A Quote by Henry D. Moyle on belief, charity, children, christianity, dependence, direction, family, fatherhood, home, hope, improvement, life, love, motherhood, parenthood, progress, responsibility, sharing, and virtue

Charity is not a virtue to expect in others only. It is the all-important Christian attribute to be found in ourselves. . . . We believe that charity must begin at home. Can we hope to be charitable to the stranger if love does not abound in the family? A sure step in the direction of improvement and progress in our own lives comes when we share with mother or father in their dependence as they shared with us in their productive years.... We cannot as children ignore our obligations to our parents by passing responsibility for their care to others. . . .

Henry D. Moyle (1889 - 1963)

A Quote by Henri Nouwen on advice, caring, confusion, despair, friendship, giving, grief, life, pain, reality, sharing, silence, and solution

When we honestly ask ourselves which persons in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate now knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

Much violence is based on the illusion that life is a property to be defended and not to be shared.

A Quote by H. Kellogg on diligence, facts, honesty, philosophy, sharing, time, work, and world

My share of the work of the world may be limited, but the fact that it is work makes it precious. Darwin could work only half an hour at a time; but in many diligent half-hours he laid anew the foundations of philosophy. Green, the historian, tells us that the world is moved not only by the mighty shoves of the heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.
