sharing

A Quote by Claude I. Taylor on clarity, commitment, communication, enthusiasm, leadership, needs, sharing, value, and vision

Certainly a leader needs a clear vision of the organization and where it is going, but a vision is of little value unless it is shared in a way so as to generate enthusiasm and commitment. Leadership and communication are inseparable.

A Quote by Christopher Columbus on belief, fear, giving, losing, love, and sharing

It is true that after they have been reassured and have lost this fear, they are so artless and so free with all they possess, that no one would believe it without having seen it. Of anything they have, if you ask them for it, they never say no; rather they invite the person to share it, and show as much love as if they were giving their hearts. This letter, the first and rarest of all printed Americana, describes the scenery and the natives of Hispaniola.

Christopher Columbus (1451 - 1506)

A Quote by Charlie Haden on day, experience, life, love, music, pain, people, sharing, sorrow, and worth

I think life is really hard sometimes. It's not easy to wake up every day and go through what you go through. But the beautiful moments that you share with people that you love, or even experience alone, are worth all of the pain and sorrow. Those moments should be cherished, and I think that's what music is all about-to remind people of the beautiful moments that are in everybody's life

A Quote by Charles Horton Cooley on affection, age, children, evil, home, impulses, morality, nature, power, sharing, simplicity, success, tact, understanding, usefulness, and world

Simplicity is a pleasant thing in children, or at any age, but it is not necessarily admirable, nor is affectation altogether a thing of evil. To be normal, to be at home in the world, with a prospect of power, usefulness, or success, the person must have that imaginative insight into other minds that underlies tact and savoir-faire, morality and beneficence. This insight involves sophistication, some understanding and sharing of the clandestine impulses of human nature. A simplicity that is merely the lack of this insight indicates a sort of defect.

A Quote by Carl G. Hempel on bachelors, certainty, contentment, information, mathematics, and sharing

The propositions of mathematics have, therefore, the same unquestionable certainty which is typical of such propositions as "All bachelors are unmarried," but they also share the complete lack of empirical content which is associated with that certainty: The propositions of mathematics are devoid of all factual content; they convey no information whatever on any empirical subject matter.

Carl G. Hempel

A Quote by C. Smith Sumner on ability, automobiles, beauty, boldness, children, confusion, danger, environment, fatherhood, garden, god, indecision, life, pollution, and sharing

The Bee Story I want to share something with you. A few days ago, I was stopped at a large, busy intersection waiting for a long light. Not really looking at anything in particular, my eyes moved about until I noticed a honey bee on the street alongside the car. It was near a bold white line which was between my lane and the left turn lane. The bee was not flying in a lush garden among beautiful flowers and shrubs and trees, in the cool clean air with quietness and beauty all around it. Instead, it had lowered itself to walk on the hot pavement surrounded by noise, pollution, heat and great threats to its very life. It crawled onto the line and seemed to be pulled toward the other side. But then it resisted and wandered back. Back and forth it went, indecisive about whether it would cross over or not. The traffic was now moving in the left turn lane and presented a grave danger. Finally the little bee, perhaps confused, being in an environment to which it was not accustomed, and not using the abilities that God had given it, drifted over the line and headed directly into foreign territory. Two tires went by quickly without harming the bee although ruffling its wings a bit. It could see that it could stand up to any danger so it carried on. Then came a bus and, in a split second, its life was snuffed out. It perished on the wrong side of the line. This is a true story about one unfortunate bee. It has been acted out, set in different environments, in the lives of many of the children of our Heavenly Father.

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

A Quote by Bryan R. Hirst on culture, generosity, god, life, energy, myth, play, and sharing

Fountains indicate and signal well-being to all. Not only that, they share their Karmic energy with all who see, hear, smell, taste and touch them. They are, and always have been, necessary for permanent settlements. We use them when ever we turn on a tap. Fountains have come to symbolize the generosity of a god, an institution or a person. They indicate abundance and ingenuity. In every culture they play a part in the mythology of life.

A Quote by Brooks Atkinson on art, facts, ideas, life, mind, people, sharing, theater, and trying

It seems to me that the thing that makes the theater worthwhile is the fact that it attracts so many people with ideas who are constantly trying to share them with the public. Real art is illumination. It gives a man an idea he never had before or lights up ideas that were formless or only lurking in the shadows of his mind. It adds stature to life.
