A Quote by Irving Fisher on boldness, economics, effort, mathematics, mind, vision, and world

The effort of the economist is to "see," to picture the interplay of economic elements. The more clearly cut these elements appear in his vision, the better; the more elements he can grasp and hold in his mind at once, the better. The economic world is a misty region. The first explorers used unaided vision. Mathematics is the lantern by which what before was dimly visible now looms up in firm, bold outlines. The old phantasmagoria disappear. We see better. We also see further.

A Quote by Abu Bakr Muhammad Ibn al-`Arabi on beginning, death, direction, divinity, faith, knowledge, spirituality, vision, and world

When the Divine Being is epiphanized to the believer in the form of his faith, this faith is true. He professes this faith in this world. But when the veil is lifted in the other world, the knot ('aqd), that is to say, the dogma ('aqida) which binds him to his particular faith, is untied; dogma gives way to knowledge by direct vision (mushahada). For the man of authentic faith, capable of spiritual vision, this is the beginning of an ascending movement after death.

A Quote by Howard Schultz on belief, day, future, life, luck, people, responsibility, and vision

I believe life is a series of near misses. A lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all. It's seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future. It's seeing what other people don't see And pursuing that vision.

A Quote by Henry Miller on culture, destruction, earth, learning, lies, tragedy, and vision

Until he [man] has become fully human, until he learns to conduct himself as a member of the earth, he will continue to create gods who will destroy him. The tragedy of Greece lies not in the destruction of a great culture but in the abortion of a great vision.

A Quote by Henry Miller on acceptance, beauty, defeat, discipline, evil, joy, life, mind, pain, strength, and vision

Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to,everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate, or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil,can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.

A Quote by Helen Adams Keller on achievement, ambition, character, inspiration, quiet, soul, success, suffering, and vision

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.

A Quote by Harold E. Stassen on corruption, courage, goals, god, greed, selfishness, vision, wisdom, and world

There will be selfishness and greed and corruption and narrowness and intolerance in the world tomorrow and tomorrow's tomorrow. But pray God we may have the courage and the wisdom and the vision to raise a definite standard that will appeal to the best that is in man, and then strive mightily toward that goal.

A Quote by Harold B. Lee on christ, death, faith, gloom, god, jesus, life, mortality, pain, sorrow, tears, understanding, victory, and vision

The heavy hand of death becomes lighter; the pall of gloom is pierced and throbbing wounds are soothed as faith lifts us beyond the sordid trials and sorrows of mortal life and gives a vision of brighter days and more joyous prospects, as has been revealed, when "God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away (Rev. 21:4) through the atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ. With such faith and understanding you who may be called upon to mourn can sing as it has been written, "Death is swallowed up in victory. O Death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" (1 Cor. 15:54-55.)
