simplicity

A Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning on earth, heaven, hospitals, saints, and simplicity

I think it frets the saints in heaven to see How many desolate creatures on the earth Have learnt the simple dues of fellowship And social comfort, in a hospital.

A Quote by Eli Stanley Jones on death, doctors, facts, faith, fear, god, mind, needs, reality, simplicity, soul, and worry

A Johns Hopkins doctor says that "we do not know why it is that the worriers die sooner than the non-worriers, but that is a fact." But I, who am simple of mind, think I know; we are inwardly constructed, in nerve and tissue and brain cell and soul, for faith and not for fear. God made us that way. Therefore, the need of faith is not something imposed on us dogmatically, but it is written in us intrinsically. We cannot live without it. To live by worry is to live against Reality.

A Quote by Edwin T. Morris on agriculture, civilization, contempt, country, divinity, feeling, life, nobility, simplicity, and traditions

In Europe, the word peasant was a term of contempt used by the nobility, but the Chinese scholars used to fancy themselves rustics. Agriculture was viewed as a noble occupation; buying and selling, by contrast were considered nonproductive. One of the founders of the Chinese civilization was said to have been the venerable She Nung, the "Divine Farmer." A scholar often affected to be nothing more than an "old farmer" or a "simple fisherman" and referred to his elegant villa as "my thatched hut." This Rosseau-like feeling for the country life is an important undercurrent in the scholarly tradition.

A Quote by Edwin Hubble Chapin on duty, life, loyalty, simplicity, and theater

No more important duty can be urged upon those who are entering the great theater of life than simple loyalty to their best convictions.

A Quote by Edward Everett Hale on america, children, country, eternity, generations, glory, good, gratitude, humility, life, love, memory, nobility, peace, simplicity, and work

No gilded dome swells from the lowly roof to catch the morning or evening beam; but the love and gratitude of united America settle upon it in one eternal sunshine. From beneath that humble roof went forth the intrepid and unselfish warrior, the magistrate who knew no glory but his country's good; to that he returned, happiest when his work was done. There he lived in noble simplicity, there he died in glory and peace. While it stands, the latest generations of the grateful children of America will make this pilgrimage to it as to a shrine; and when it shall fall, if fall it must, the memory and the name of Washington shall shed an eternal glory on the spot.

A Quote by Edgar Albert Guest on cleverness, duty, effort, errors, friendship, glory, honesty, justice, labor, money, needs, neighbors, people, pity, simplicity, trying, wishes, and youth

Be a friend. You don't need money: Just a disposition sunny; Just the wish to help another Get along some way or other; Just a kindly had extended Out to one who's unbefriended; Just the will to give or lend, This will make you someone's friend. Be a friend. You don't need glory. Friendship is a simple story. Pass by trifling errors blindly, Gaze on honest effort kindly, Cheer the youth who's bravely trying, Pity him who's sadly sighing; Just a little labor spend On the duties of a friend. Be a friend. The pay is bigger (Though not written by a figure) Tan is earned by people clever In what's merely self-endeavor. You'll have friends instead of neighbors For the profits of your labors; You'll be richer in the end Than a prince, if you're a friend.

A Quote by Edgar Watson "Ed" Howe on beginning, body, exercise, experience, facts, feeling, improvement, intelligence, inventions, joy, mind, reflection, simplicity, study, time, work, and world

The joy of feeling fit physically is reflected in a clearer and more useful mind. You may read and study forever, but you come to no more important truthful conclusions than these two: 1. Take care of your body (eat and exercise properly), and your mind will improve. 2. Work hard, and be polite and fair, and your condition in the world will improve. No pills, tablets, lotions, philosophies, will do as much for you as this simple formula I have outlined. The formula is not of my invention. Every intelligent man of experience since time began has taught it as a natural fact.

Ed Howe (1853 - 1937)

A Quote by Earl Clement Richard Attlee on action, communism, democracy, failure, fascism, judgment, people, power, simplicity, and world

The criterion by which these people judge their action is a simple one. If in any part of the world the Communist Party, by no matter what means, is in power, that is democracy. If anywhere the Communists fail, then, however fair the conditions, it is regarded as Fascism.
