trouble

A Quote by unknown on power, trouble, and words

I opened the old, old Bible, And looked at a page of Psalms, Till the wintry sea of my troubles Was soothed as by summer calms; For the words that have helped so many; And the ages have made more dear, Seemed new in their power to comfort, As they brought me their word of cheer.

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on forgiveness, men, mistakes, thought, and trouble

Point out to the men working with you and around you that we forgive thoughtful mistakes - that it is only the thoughtless mistakes that cause trouble. Tell them first to be sure they have thought about each proposition, then to go ahead.

A Quote by Thomas Paine on approval, bravery, business, conscience, death, heart, love, principles, reflection, strength, and trouble

I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.
