A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on challenge, choice, ethics, good, imperfection, life, names, pain, problems, struggle, trying, work, and world

We all faced painful ethical challenges before we even knew how to spell our names. There were tough choices. Tradeoffs. Confusing signals regarding how to live one's life. And here we are now, today, still struggling. Still trying to sort things out. Still trying to work our way through life effectively. About the only thing that has changed is the scope of the problem. There's more at stake now. And we're in a position, as grownups, to do a lot more-good or bad-for ourselves, our organization, our world. But we still must wrestle with our imperfect ethics.

A Quote by Pablo Ruiz Picasso on art, god, inventions, justice, style, and trying

God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant, and the ant. He has no real style. He just goes on trying other things.

A Quote by Orson Scott Card on computers, friendship, love, personality, personality, trying, and wives

Isn't it possible, he wondered, for one person to love another without trying to own each other? Or is that buried so deep in our genes that we can never get it out? Territoriality. My wife. My friend. My lover. My outrageous and annoying computer personality who's about to be shut off at the behest of a half-crazy girl with OCD on a planet that I never heard of and how will I live without [her] when she's gone?

A Quote by Ogden Nash on justice and trying

Linguistics becomes an ever eerier area, like I feel like I'm in Oz, Just trying to tell it like it was.

A Quote by Norman R. Augustine on cities, daughters, driving, family, logic, perception, problems, solution, technology, and trying

Too often technology is perceived as the problem rather than the solution; as something to be avoided rather than embraced. This is about as logical as my daughter's observing, while our family was driving through an unfamiliar city, "Trying to read a map while driving causes all the traffic lights to turn green."

Norman R. Augustine (1935 -)

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on exploring, faith, and trying

Some find it easier to bend their knees than their minds. Exciting exploration is preferred to plodding implementation; speculation seems more fun than consecration, and so is trying to soften the hard doctrines instead of submitting to them. Worse still, by not obeying, these . . . lack real knowing. Lacking real knowing, they cannot defend their faith and may become critics instead of defenders!

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on endurance, experience, god, life, needs, observation, past, purpose, soul, time, trying, and value

There are also flat periods in life which may well be the periods during which-before new lessons come- the past lessons of life are allowed to seep, quietly and deeply, into the marrow of the soul. These outwardly flat periods, when enduring well may not seem very purposeful,, are probably the times when needed attitudinal alignments are quietly occurring. Trying to observe the slow shift from self-centeredness to empathy is like trying to watch grass grow. An experience is thus not only endured but also absorbed and perused, almost unconsciously, for its value. Such a process takes time. Therefore it is we, not God, who need more time.

A Quote by Nadia Boulanger on life and trying

Life is denied by lack of attention, whether it be to cleaning windows or trying to write a masterpiece.
