A Quote by Abbot Nikon on god, salvation, enlightenment, repentence, work, freedom, hope, christianity, tomorrow, and life

You have every opportunity, both eternal and external, for repentence and salvation, which is so rare in this day and age.  If you do not take advantage of this now, but keep putting off the work of salvation, you may easily fool yourself.  We cannot be certain that tomorrow belongs to us.  The Lord warns us all: be ready each minute, for you know not what day or what hour they will come for you.

A Quote by Brenda Ueland on work, love, passion, writing, and difficulty

Know that it is good to work. Work with love, and think of liking it when you do it. It is easy and interesting. It is a privilege. There is nothing hard about it but your anxious vanity and fear of failure.

A Quote by Karl Lagerfeld on waiting, inspiration, and work

Yes, and I can sit down on a white piece of paper and work because I don't believe too much into inspiration, only I'm waiting for inspiration, work and then inspiration may come. It's a little too easy to say that.

In a mood of faith and hope my work goes on. A ream of fresh paper lies on my desk waiting for the next book. I am a writer and I take up my pen to write.

A Quote by John Lennon on love, nurturing, and work

We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.

John Lennon (1940 - 1980)
