trying

A Quote by Monte L. Bean on business, facts, success, and trying

If there is any one axiom that I have tried to live up to in trying to become successful in business, it is the fact that I have tried to surround myself with associates that know more about business than I do. This policy has always been very successful and is still working for me.

A Quote by Milton R. Hunter on achievement, body, church, clothes, corruption, earth, entertainment, eternity, food, heart, heaven, home, jesus, learning, lies, money, needs, possessions, service, spirituality, taxes, time, trying, and worth

I have learned as I have become older that worldly goods and things are of minor importance. One needs only sufficient food to sustain his body, a reasonable amount of clothing to wear, and sufficient comforts of home, and probably some money for entertainment, cultural things, church service, taxes, and traveling. The man with worldly riches cannot use more. He cannot wear two shirts comfortably at one time, nor can he eat two meals at one time. (Of course I know some who try.) I do not mean that one should cease trying to achieve; but what I am trying to say is that one should put first things first. The things of greater worth lie in the realm of the spiritual. They really constitute our eternal possessions of untold worth. Remember the admonition Jesus gave: Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust cloth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust cloth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6 :19-21.

A Quote by Michael Van Biesbrouck on corruption, dance, life, people, politics, trying, and war

Again, we must ask ourselves why the people that brought war, plane crashes, political corruption, lap dancing and serial killers to our breakfast tables and into our living rooms are trying to sooth us with futuristic Web browsers, all buttons and spinning logos

A Quote by Merry Browne on people and trying

Expect people to be better than they are; it helps them to become better. But don't be disappointed when they are not; it helps them to keep trying.

A Quote by Meredith Willson on appreciation, dignity, gifts, justice, kindness, listening, love, motherhood, needs, people, problems, respect, struggle, time, trying, understanding, and vision

Seven gifts my mother gave me: 1. The gift of right: if mamma saw a wrong she righted it. 2. The gift of friendliness: making people happier than they were before 3. The gift of rose-colored vision: mamma liked for the flowers, not the weeds. 4. The gift of fun: mamma gave us the best gift a mother can - her time. 5. The gift of understanding: she was always trying to solve people's problems or at least listen to them. 6. The gift of thoughtfulness: she didn't wait for something special, she just did kind acts any time she saw the need. 7. The gift of respect: when you help to inch your fellow man along on that struggle to dignity, he loves you for it. Seven gifts? I could list seven hundred gifts my mother gave me. Gifts not boxed and ribboned. Not always noticed or even appreciated at the time. But a part of us. Forever.

A Quote by Marvin J. Ashton on achievement, awareness, belief, brothers, children, church, criticism, destruction, devil, doubt, failure, family, flaws, friendship, giving, hatred, hope, love, men, needs, neighbors, patience, progress, sister, success, s

None of us need one more person bashing or pointing out where we have failed or fallen short. Most of us are already well aware of the areas in which we are weak. What each of us does need is family, friends, employers, and brothers and sisters who support us, who have the patience to teach us, who believe in us, and who believe we're trying to do the best we can, in spite of our weaknesses. What ever happened to giving each other the benefit of the doubt? What ever happened to hoping that another person would succeed or achieve? What ever happened to rooting for each other? [Satan's] tactic is stirring up hatred among the children of men. He loves to see us criticize each other, make fun or take advantage of our neighbor's known flaws, and generally pick on each other. There will always be those in the days ahead who will be inclined to bash ourselves and others, but we cannot allow a heavy, crushing blow to destroy us or deter our personal or church progress.
