A Quote by Joel Barker on action, change, dreams, justice, time, vision, and world

Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.

A Quote by Janice Emily Bowers on day, friendship, garden, life, seasons, vision, and worth

Finally, I realized what makes my garden exciting is me. Living in it every day, participating minutely in each small event, I see with doubled and redoubled vision. Where friends notice a solitary hummingbird pricking the salvia flowers, I recall a season's worth of hummingbird battles.

A Quote by James Henry Leigh Hunt on angels, boldness, books, dreams, god, gold, love, men, names, peace, rest, vision, and writing

Abou Ben Adhem (may his tribe increase!) Awoke one night from a deep dream of peace, And saw, within the moonlight in his room, Making it rich, and like a lily in bloom, An angel writing in a book of gold:- Exceeding peace had made Ben Adhem bold, And to the presence in the room he said, "What writest thou?" -The vision raised its head, And with a look made all of sweet accord, Answered, "The names of those who love the Lord." "And is mine one?" said Abou. "Nay not so." Replied the angel, Abou spoke more low, But clearly still, and said, "I pray thee, then, Write me as one that loves his fellow-men." The angel wrote and vanished. The next night It came again with a great wakening light, And showed the names whom love of God had blessed. And lo! Ben Adhem's name led all the rest!

A Quote by James Henry Leigh Hunt on dreams, eternity, thought, and vision

It flows through old hushed Egypt and its sands, Like some grave mighty thought threading a dream, And times and things, as in that vision, seem Keeping along it their eternal stands.

A Quote by James Allen on control, desires, environment, idealism, present, and vision

Whatever your present environment may be, you will fall, remain, or rise with your thoughts, your Vision, your Ideal. You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration.

A Quote by James Allen on beauty, environment, heart, idealism, mind, music, vision, and world

Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.

A Quote by J. Wilbur Chapman on christ, christianity, difficulty, life, prayer, study, vision, and work

Anything that dims my vision for Christ, or takes away my taste for Bible study, or cramps me in my prayer life, or makes Christian work difficult, is wrong for me; and I must, as a Christian turn away from it.

A Quote by J. B. Phillips on achievement, body, books, christianity, concern, difficulty, enthusiasm, god, imagination, individuality, leadership, life, patience, people, philosophy, quiet, study, truth, understanding, value, vision, and work

In his enthusiasm, the evangelist often finds it difficult seriously to imagine that anyone could be called not to be an evangelist. The man of vision and imagination finds it difficult to see the value of those who do no more than plod on faithfully along a well-tried road. The man whose concern is in personal dealing with people and leading them to understand God better finds it difficult to be patient with the theologian or the Christian philosopher whose work is in the quiet of a book-lined study. Yet the truth is that the wholeness which God is working to achieve is never complete in an individual, but through individuals living together as one body, each supplying the deficiencies of the others.

A Quote by Isadora Duncan on art, beauty, immortality, love, purity, soul, and vision

The artist is the only lover; he alone has the pure vision of beauty, and love is the vision of the soul when it is permitted to gaze upon immortal beauty.
