A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on body, conviction, decisions, feeling, kindness, logic, mind, power, uncertainty, vision, and weather

Wind, weather, power, load - gradually these elements stop churning in my mind. It's less a decision of logic than a feeling, the kind of feeling that comes when you gauge the distance to be jumped between two stones across a brook. Something within you disengages itself from your body and travels ahead with your vision to make the test. You can feel it try the jump as you stand looking. Then uncertainty gives way to the conviction that it can or can't be done.

Charles Lindbergh (1902 - 1974)

A Quote by Catherine M. Prostak on beauty, garden, god, love, nature, vision, and wisdom

God in his wisdom created these places And made them accessible to those of all races Rare visions of beauty, and fragrant perfume Distributed freely for all to consume. While Enjoying Nature, confessions and pardons Sincerely flow forth, as love grows in God's Gardens

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on clarity, dreams, heart, and vision

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. . . . Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

A Quote by C. W. De Kiewiet on acting, challenge, chance, experience, future, history, life, men, progress, and vision

A vision of the future has been one of the sustaining marks of the American experience. Without that vision and without the men who devote themselves to realizing that vision, there can be no true American way of life. We must beware of the thoughtless men who proclaim that a particular stage of our social development, or any special set of conditions, is the best that progress can offer. These men would immobilize us in the great stream of history. They would let its great challenges and chances pass us by, . . . forgetting that the American way of life is a way of acting, not a state of inactivity.

A Quote by Bruce Lee on ambition, confidence, creativity, determination, faith, force, spirituality, and vision

As long as I can remember I feel I have had this great creative and spiritual force within me that is greater than faith, greater than ambition, greater than confidence, greater than determination, greater than vision. It is all these combined. My brain becomes magnetized with this dominating force which I hold in my hand.

A Quote by Bruce Barton on action, change, errors, fear, hope, life, progress, and vision

Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change - this is the rhythm of living. Out of our overconfidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress.

A Quote by Bodhidharma on mind, opposites, reality, study, understanding, vision, and world

If you use your mind to study reality, you won't understand either your mind or reality. If you study reality without using your mind, you'll understand both. . . . The mind and the world are opposites, and vision arises where they meet. When your mind doesn't stir inside, the world doesn't arise outside. When the world and the mind are both transparent, this is true vision. And such understanding is true understanding.

A Quote by Bertrand Arthur William Russell on effort, experience, influence, laughter, secrets, universe, and vision

William James describes a man who got the experience from laughing-gas; whenever he was under its influence, he knew the secret of the universe, but when he came to, he had forgotten it. At last, with immense effort, he wrote down the secret before the vision had faded. When completely recovered, he rushed to see what he had written. It was 'A smell of petroleum prevails throughout'.

A Quote by Bernard de Voto on generosity, kindness, life, men, men and women, vision, water, and women

The water of life was given to us to make us see for a while that we are more nearly men and women, more nearly kind and gentle and generous, pleasanter and stronger than without its vision there is any evidence we are.
