A Quote by Diogenes on enemies, friendship, good, perfection, and sincerity

To arrive at perfection, a man should have very sincere friends or inveterate enemies; because he would be made sensible of his good or ill conduct, either by the censures of the one or the admonitions of the other.

A Quote by David Viscott on beauty, cruelty, pain, past, relationships, sharing, sincerity, struggle, time, wishes, and world

There comes a time in some relationships when no matter how sincere the attempt to reconcile the differences or how strong the wish to recreate a part of the past once shared, the struggle becomes so painful that nothing else is felt and the world and all its beauty only add to the discomfort by providing cruel contrast.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on blessings, fatherhood, heart, language, prayer, sincerity, soul, spirit, virtue, words, and work

Prayer is the yearning of the spirit. It is the message of the soul sent directly to a loving father. The language is not mere words, but a loving heart in tune with the infinite. Sincere praying implies that when we ask for any blessing or virtue we should work for the blessing and cultivate the virtue.

A Quote by Confucius on anger, caring, chance, consequences, diligence, doubt, information, kindness, sincerity, words, and work

The gentleman has nine cares. In seeing he is careful to see clearly; in hearing he is careful to hear distinctly; in his looks he is careful to be kind, in his manner to be respectful, in his words to be sincere, in his work to be diligent. When in doubt he is careful to ask for information; when angry he has a care for the consequences; and when he sees a chance for gain, he thinks carefully whether the pursuits of it would be right.

A Quote by Confucius on principles, sincerity, and weakness

There are three sorts of friendships which are advantageous, and three which are injurious. Friendships with the upright, friendships with the sincere, and friendships with the well informed are advantageous. Friendships with those who flatter, friendships with those of weak principles, and friendships with those who talk cleverly are injurious.

A Quote by Christopher Columbus on certainty, charity, death, god, honesty, honor, hope, justice, lies, purpose, sincerity, truth, wealth, and zeal

Weep for me, whoever has charity, truth and justice! I did not come on this voyage for gain, honor or wealth, that is certain; for then the hope of all such things was dead. I came to Your Highnesses with honest purpose and sincere zeal; and I do not lie. I humbly beseech Your Highnesses that, if it please God to remove me hence, you will help me to go to Rome and on other pilgrimages.

Christopher Columbus (1451 - 1506)
