A Quote by Lisa Velthouse on love, waiting, and standards

Don't let yourself fall in love with somebody just to say that you've falling in love.  Wait and hope for the kind of guy you dream of.

Don't let your age or your circumstances diminish the way you dream.  Wait and hope.

Don't lower your standard just to have a guy in your arms or a vase full of flowers in your dresser.  Wait and hope.

Don't let your fear make you ignore the deepest dreams in your heart.  Wait and hope.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, character, self-respect self-esteem, and standards

Only once one has understood the aristic ethos will one comprehend that there are many ways of mistreating or abusing another person that one cannot permit oneself, not merely because the other has rights (in his limited status, and specific to that status) and long-term needs to be properly taken care of, but also because oneself is an aristos and absolutely has to be above all such intemperate and myopic behavior. We are talking about something incomprehensible to most moderns, an ethics of character: an autonomous ethics, enforced out of one's sense of shame and guilt at not being true to oneself--not a heteronomous banausic or slavish sense of shame in the eyes of others' opinions about oneself. To have higher expectations of oneself is the decisive thing.

A Quote by Anthony (Tony) Robbins on standards, life, quality of life, and deserve

If you don't set a baseline standard for what you'll accept in life, you'll find it's easy to slip into behaviors and attitudes or a quality of life that's far below what you deserve.

A Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on standards, opinion, feedback, objective, and expert

Some individuals have developed such strong internal standards that they no longer need the opinion of others to judge whether they have performed a task well or not. The ability to give objective feedback to oneself is in fact the mark of the expert.
