sincerity

A Quote by Marquise Magdeleine de Sablé on belief, deception, goals, honesty, people, sincerity, and path

Honest and sincere acts mislead the wicked and cause them to lose their path to their own goals, because mean-spirited people usually believe that people never act without deceit.

A Quote by Marquise Magdeleine de Sablé on people, sincerity, and trying

It is a very trying task for deceitful people, always to have to cover up their lack of sincerity and to repair the breaking of their word.

A Quote by Louis Ruthenburg on ability, accuracy, art, management, patience, persistence, progress, reflection, and sincerity

The technical progress of industry has been a reflection of our ability to apply increasingly accurate methods of measurement to material things. The art of measuring psychological human dimensions is relatively undeveloped. To all of the complexities of management we must bring to bear infinite patience and persistence, consistency and complete sincerity.

A Quote by John Dryden on boasts, death, journeys, joy, life, mind, sincerity, and world

Since every man who lives is born to die, And none can boast sincere felicity, With equal mind, what happens, let us bear, Nor joy nor grieve too much for things beyond our care. Like pilgrims to the' appointed place we tend; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end.

A Quote by James Montgomery on angels, christianity, death, deed, desires, earth, fatherhood, god, jesus, life, mind, music, prayer, saints, sincerity, songs, sons, soul, speech, spirit, truth, and path

Prayer is the soul's sincere desire, Uttered or unexpressed, The motion of a hidden fire That trembles in the breast. Prayer is the burden of a sigh, The falling of a tear, The upward glancing of an eye When none but God is near. Prayer is the simplest form of speech That infant lips can try; Prayer, the sublimest strains that reach The Majesty on high. Prayer is the Christian's vital breath, The Christian's native air, His watchword at the gates of death; He enters heav'n with prayer. Prayer is the contrite sinner's voice, Returning from his ways, While angels in their songs rejoice And cry, "Behold, he prays!" The Saints in prayer appear as one In word and deed and mind, While with the Father and the Son Their fellowship they find. Nor prayer is made on earth alone: The Holy Spirit pleads, And Jesus at the Father's throne For sinners intercedes. O thou by whom we come to God, The Life, the Truth, the Way! The path of prayer thyself hast trod; Lord, teach us how to pray. Music: George Careless, 1839-1932, #145

A Quote by James Russell Lowell on character, impossibility, and sincerity

Sincerity is impossible unless it pervades the whole being, and the pretense of it saps the very foundation of character.
