Spirit

A Quote by Charles Michael Schwab on approval, criticism, effort, spirit, and work

I have yet to find the man, however exalted his station, who did not do better work and put forth greater effort under a spirit of approval than under a spirit of criticism.

A Quote by Charles Lamb on death, devil, holidays, inventions, spirit, and work

Who first invented work, and bound the free And holiday-rejoicing spirit down . . . . To that dry drudgery at the desk's dead wood? . . . . Sabbathless Satan!

A Quote by Charles Lamb on darkness, hope, mortality, prayer, silence, soul, spirit, world, and worship

As down in the sunless retreats of the ocean Sweet flowers are springing no mortal can see, So deep in my soul the still prayer of devotion, Unheard by the world, rises silent to Thee. As still to the star of its worship, though clouded, The needle points faithfully o'er the dim sea, So dark when I roam in this wintry world shrouded, The hope of my spirit turns trembling to Thee.

A Quote by Charles Kingsley on admiration, dreams, fatherhood, gifts, god, good, grace, heaven, life, men, power, religion, saints, sermons, spirit, thought, and worth

One good man, one man who does not put on his religion once a week with his Sunday coat, but wears it for his working dress, and lets the thought of God grow into him, and through and through him, till everything he says and does becomes religious, that man is worth a thousand sermons - he is a living Gospel - he comes in the spirit and power of Elias - he is the image of God. And men see his good works, and admire them in spite of themselves, and see that they are Godlike, and that God's grace is no dream, but that the Holy Spirit is still among men, and that all nobleness and manliness is His gift, His stamp, His picture: and so they get a glimpse of God again in His saints and heroes, and glorify their Father who is in heaven.

A Quote by Charles Dickens on angels, brothers, chance, darkness, death, friendship, grief, heart, hope, impulses, justice, losing, love, mercy, needs, prayer, purity, sorrow, spirit, timidity, truth, work, and youth

things that never die The pure, the bright, the beautiful That stirred our hearts in youth, The impulses to wordless prayer, The streams of love and truth, The longing after something lost, The spirit's yearning cry, The striving after better hopes- These things can never die. The timid hand stretched forth to aid A brother in his need; A kindly word in grief's dark hour That proves a friend indeed; The plea for mercy softly breathed, When justice threatens high, The sorrow of a contrite heart- These things shall never die. Let nothing pass, for every hand Must find some work to do, Lose not a chance to waken love- Be firm and just and true. So shall a light that cannot fade Beam on thee from on high, And angel voices say to thee- "These things shall never die."

A Quote by Charles Alexander Eastman on nature and spirit

Nearness to nature . . . keeps the spirit sensitive to impressions not commonly felt and in touch with the unseen powers.

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on balance, belief, body, earth, life, luxury, mind, science, spirit, and survival

I believe that for permanent survival, man must balance science with other qualities of life, qualities of body and spirit as well as those of mind - qualities he cannot develop when he lets mechanics and luxury insulate him too greatly from the earth to which he was born.

A Quote by Celia Thaxter on beauty, darkness, earth, god, lies, spirit, and universe

Of all the wonderful things in the wonderful universe of God, nothing seems to me more surprising than the planting of a seed in the blank earth and the result thereof. Take that Poppy seed, for instance: it lies in your palm, the merest atom of matter, hardly visible, a speck, a pin's point in bulk, but within it is imprisoned a spirit of beauty ineffable, which will break its bonds and emerge from the dark ground and blossom in a splendor so dazzling as to baffle all powers of description.

A Quote by Carol L. Banks on children, fatherhood, fear, feeling, heart, justice, peace, prayer, quiet, spirit, and trust

She crept up to her father's knee to sit there quite contentedly. No word needing to be said, Laying his hand upon her head, and looking down, he gently smiled upon his treasured trusting child. 'tis thus with me approaching prayer, feeling father's spirit there. In quiet peace all fears are fled, heart so warmed, so fully fed, That, oh, it's just as though he'd smiled on me, his blessed, joyous child.
