struggle

A Quote by Elder Anthony of Optina on god, sacred, spirit, struggle, troubles, spirituality, rewards, victory, enlightenment, and laziness

Of course it would be easier to get to paradise with a full stomach, all snuggled up in a soft feather-bed, but what is required is to carry one's cross along the way, for the Kingdom of God is not attained by enduring one or two troubles, but many!

A Quote by St. Tikhon of Zadonsk on god, christianity, spirituality, truth, temptations, struggle, cleansing, heart, and knowledge

"Many flatter themselves and consider themselves to be good, humble, and meek, but they will discover the contrary under temptation.  Do not not become despondent in temptations, then, but give all the more thanks to God that He thus brings you to what is hidden in your heart - the knowledge of yourself - and wishes you to be corrected and be saved.

A Quote by Cecelia Ahern on struggle, darkness, fear, contradiction, bravery, and strength

My darkest moments, my most fearful times, when faced, became my bravest.  At your weakest, you end up showing more strength; at your lowest you are suddenly lifted higher than you've ever been.  They all border one another, these opposites, and show how quickly we can be altered.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on suffering, dreams, defeats, struggle, and life

But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it's better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you're fighting for.

Paulo Coelho

A Quote by Osho Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh on moment, fighting, fuss, violence, ambition, conflict, hatred, struggle, anger, train, politics, and gone

One moment it was there, another moment it is gone. One moment we are here, and another moment we have gone. And for this simple moment, how much fuss we make! How much violence, ambition, struggle, conflict, anger, hatred, just for this small moment! Just waiting for the train in a waiting room on a station, and creating so much fuss: fighting, hurting each other, trying to possess, trying to boss, trying to dominate - all that politics. And then the train comes and you are gone forever.

Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on vision, value, principles, goals, mission, conscience, direction, time management, compass, clock, and struggle

Our struggle to put first things first can be characterized by the contrast between two powerful tools that direct us: the clock and the compass.  The clock represents our commitments, appointments, schedules, goals, activities -- what we do with, and how we manage our time.  The compass represents our vision, values, principles, mission, conscience, direction -- what we feel is important and how we lead our lives.  In an effort to close the gap between the clock and the compass in our lives, many of us turn to the field of "time management."

Stephen Covey (1932 -)

A Quote by Mr. on prophet, demons, personal demons, struggle, overcoming demons, and mr prophet

Some believe that just because I am a prophet, I don't struggle with any personal demons. To be human is to struggle with your own personal demons. The difference between me and many others is I have overcome my demons.
