A Quote by William A. Foster on accidents, achievement, choice, direction, effort, execution, experience, idealism, intelligence, intention, necessity, quality, satisfaction, sincerity, and usefulness

Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives, the cumulative experience of many masters of craftsmanship. Quality also marks the search for an ideal after necessity has been satisfied and mere usefulness achieved.

A Quote by Thomas S. Monson on journeys, language, life, perfection, simplicity, sincerity, and spirit

Gracias, danke, merci - whatever language is spoken, "thank you" frequently expressed will cheer your spirit, broaden your friendships, and lift your lives to a higher pathway as you journey toward perfection. There is a simplicity - even a sincerity - when "thank you" is spoken.

A Quote by Thomas Paine on good, habits, hypocrisy, men, mind, and sincerity

Panics, in some cases, have their uses; they produce as much good as hurt. Their duration is always short; the mind soon grows through them and acquires a firmer habit than before. But their peculiar advantage is, that they are the touchstone of sincerity and hypocrisy, and bring things and men to light, which might have lain forever undiscovered.

A Quote by Shui-ch'ing Tzu on action, knowledge, progress, sincerity, teachers, and taoism

If you are sincere in seeking this knowledge, you must look for a teacher and humbly ask your teacher to show you the opening of the Mysterious Gate. From then on, if your actions follow the Tao, you will progress. If your actions stray from the Tao, your progress will be halted.
