A Quote by Monica Diaz on otheresteem, value, compassion, and greatness

Otheresteem is--quite simply--a word to describe the view you have of another person. Even more, the feeling that view brings out in you. The value you can find in that person. Otheresteem is high when you like what you see in the other, both in the present and the imaginable future. You find that person to be capable of improvement, worthy of it.

A Quote by Monica Diaz on compassion, self, other, relatoinships, value, and worth

There is a space between self and other where the boundaries melt. Where being myself means being attuned to others. Where being in sync with those around me means finding my self of worth.

A Quote by Jeanette Winterson on play, win, lose, love, risk, and value

You play, you win, you play, you lose. You play. It’s the playing that’s irresistible. Dicing from one year to the next with the things you love, what you risk reveals what you value.

A Quote by William Shakespeare on adversity, truth, value, sermons, and stones

Sweet are the uses of adversity
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head; 
And this our life, exempt from human haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, 
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.
I would not change it

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

A Quote by Mother Teresa on love, success, loving, and value

The success of love is in the loving - it is not in the result of loving. Of course it is natural in love to want the best for the other person, but whether it turns out that way or not does not determine the value of what we have done.

Mother Teresa (1910 - 1998)

A Quote by Bertrand Arthur William Russell on greatness, soul, happiness, fate, value, and joy

A man who has once perceived, however temporarily and however briefly, what makes greatness of soul, can no longer be happy if he allows himself to be petty, self-seeking, troubled by trivial misfortunes, dreading what fate may have in store for him. The man capable of greatness of soul will open wide the windows of his mind, letting the winds blow freely upon it from every portion of the universe.

He will see himself and life and the world as truly as our human limitations will permit; realizing the brevity and minuteness of human life, he will realize also that in individual minds is concentrated whatever of value the known universe contains. And he will see that the man whose mind mirrors the world becomes in a sense as great as the world. In emancipation from the fears that beset the slave of circumstance he will experience a profound joy, and through all the vicissitudes of his outward life he will remain in the depths of his being a happy man.

Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)
