#1. The men who have succeeded are men who have chosen one line and stuck to it. - Author: Andrew Carnegie
Commitment quotes by Andrew Carnegie
#2. I suspect, however, that the thing that confuses you about Ian is that he's half Scot. In many ways he's more Scot than English, which accounts for what you're calling a ruthless streak. He'll do what he pleases, when he pleases, and the devil fly with the consequences. He always has. He doesn't care what anyone thinks of him or of what he does."
Pausing, Jordan glanced meaningfully at the couple who'd paused to look at a shrubbery on the front lawn. Ian was listening to Elizabeth intently, an expression of tenderness on his rugged face. "The other night, however, he cared very much what people thought of your lovely friend. In fact, I don't like to think what he might have done had anyone actually dared to openly insult her in front of him. You're right when you aren't deceived by Ian's civilized veneer. Beneath that he's a Scot, and he has a temper to go with it, though he usually keeps it in check."
"I don't think you're reassuring me," Alex said shakily.
"I should be. He's committed himself completely to her. That commitment is so deep that he even reconciled with his grandfather and then appeared with him in public, which I know was because of Elizabeth."
"What on earth makes you think that?"
"For one thing, when I saw Ian at the Blackmore he had no plans for the evening until he discovered what Elizabeth was going to do at the Willingtons'. The next I knew, he was walking into that ball with his grandfather at his side. And that, my love, is wha - Author: Judith McNaught
Commitment quotes by Judith McNaught
#3. With courage, confident and commitment, the dream is possible. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Commitment quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#4. It's been hard for me at times ... the responsibility and expectation that comes with being a leader. I'm not always the one I wish I could be, that I should be, but nonetheless, it is my place. If I were to ever show a commitment to something other than my leadership, which could jeopardize the function I have, I would be risking too many lives. I couldn't live with that. - Author: Jessica Shirvington
Commitment quotes by Jessica Shirvington
#5. It is dangerous to be so busy that you have no time to wait on God. - Author: Aiden Wilson Tozer
Commitment quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#6. Courage is a heart word. The root of the word courage is cor - the Latin word for heart. In one of its earliest forms, the word courage meant "To speak one's mind by telling all one's heart." Over time, this definition has changed, and today, we typically associate courage with heroic and brave deeds. But in my opinion, this definition fails to recognize the inner strength and level of commitment required for us to actually speak honestly and openly about who we are and about our experiences
good and bad. Speaking from our hearts is what I think of as "ordinary courage. - Author: Brene Brown
Commitment quotes by Brene Brown
#7. My shipmates and I only grasped our roles on the very superficial level we were taught. We were fighting the bad guys. They were the bad guys because we were told that they were the bad guys. We had to control, infiltrate, and shove our authority around the world because we were its greatest nation. We had the shiniest ships, the biggest guns, the deadliest weapons, and the cockiest egos. And if we thought otherwise, we were vicious traitors. The military condemns rebels, thinkers, and doubt. The military loves obedience, loyalty, and oblivion. Its core values are, after all, "Honor, Courage, and Commitment. - Author: Maggie Young
Commitment quotes by Maggie Young
#8. There's not a lot of room anymore for what I call 'made-up' drama. The drama comes from real places now - marriage takes work and focus, the kid stuff takes patience and commitment. And if you don't grow as people and as a couple, within all of that, then you've got some real drama. - Author: Jeremy Sisto
Commitment quotes by Jeremy Sisto
#9. Your commitment to Jesus is a beautiful thing, but it will eventually dwindle down, unless you fully understand His commitment to you. - Author: Carlos A. Rodriguez
Commitment quotes by Carlos A. Rodriguez
#10. The doxology moves then to assert that Israel is forever and Yahweh's commitment to Israel is also forever. We had better approach any such doxology suspiciously.
The word "forever" is a clue word, because when it occurs we are likely dealing with state truth.23 That point would perhaps not be noticeable if Yahweh were forever. But it is the people Israel who are said to be "forever." By such a rhetorical move, the main jeopardy from the dreaded God has been removed for the dynasty. Yahweh has now been claimed as a friendly and reliable patron for the regime.
When doxology is used in the context of state truth, it has a political function. Ostensibly it enhances God, but when used as it is used here, it has a political function. Praise of God is by necessary implication praise of and legitimization of the regime. So the "foreverness" is processed as a dynastic claim. The - Author: Walter Brueggemann
Commitment quotes by Walter Brueggemann
#11. It cannot bring back and make whole those who suffered and died by a racist's criminal hand. But it can at least reaffirm our nation's commitment to seek the truth and make equal justice a reality. - Author: Christopher Dodd
Commitment quotes by Christopher Dodd
#12. Back when I was dating, the dreaded C word was Commitment. As soon as most men found out I had a child, they ran. If I ever got close enough to say the words, 'I love you,' they ran faster. - Author: Regina Brett
Commitment quotes by Regina Brett
#13. sex has a price tag. What price will you write on the tag? Is it something cheap, that can be given away with no commitment and short-term fulfilment. Or is it a precious, intimate gift, to be shared with one person under the covenant of marriage? - Author: Sarah Coleman
Commitment quotes by Sarah Coleman
#14. The love, support, and respect the members of the theater community have for one another is unparalleled. Say what you want about us wacky drama-types, but one thing that makes our business special is our loyalty, our fierce commitment to one another, and our mutual respect. - Author: Monica Raymund
Commitment quotes by Monica Raymund
#15. You can't escape from a prison until you recognize you are in one. People who have chosen to live within the limits of their old beliefs continue to have the same experiences. It takes effort and commitment to break old patterns - Author: Bob Proctor
Commitment quotes by Bob Proctor
#16. The trouble with deep belief is that it costs something And there is something inside me, some selfish beast of a subtle thing that doesn't like the truth at all because it carries responsibility, and if I actually believe these things I have to do something about them. It is so, so cumbersome to believe anything. And it isn't cool. - Author: Donald Miller
Commitment quotes by Donald Miller
#17. you have to be willing to give your customer-service staff the freedom to work without a script or specific instructions. If you don't dare do this, you have to ask yourself why they were hired in the first place if you don't trust their judgement. And if you don't show them that level of confidence, you shouldn't expect much commitment from them in return. - Author: Lars Kolind
Commitment quotes by Lars Kolind
#18. Hundreds of people who've never written before send in 'Dr. Who' scripts. They may have good ideas, but what they fail to realise is that writing for TV is incredibly complicated. They have no idea how difficult it is and what the financial commitment is. - Author: Douglas Adams
Commitment quotes by Douglas Adams
#19. There is no silver bullet in sales success. It takes hard work, commitment, and skill savvy. - Author: Timi Nadela
Commitment quotes by Timi Nadela
#20. When the passion goes away, it's the practice that sustains us. This is the fruit of commitment, the reason it's worth the hardship. When you commit to something, anything, it allows you to practice what you love. - Author: Jeff Goins
Commitment quotes by Jeff Goins
#21. I suspect that these traits-desire, commitment, and good work habits-are important in all facets of our lives ... - Author: LaVell Edwards
Commitment quotes by LaVell Edwards
#22. When I write, I don't allow the fear of consequences to interfere with the writing process. I have in the past paid for my commitment to the truth and the way I live my life. I am prepared to pay more if I have to. - Author: Taslima Nasrin
Commitment quotes by Taslima Nasrin
#23. To congratulate oneself on one's warm commitment to the environment, or to peace, or to the oppressed, and think no more is a profound moral fault. - Author: Robert Conquest
Commitment quotes by Robert Conquest
#24. You must be more committed to the truth of God's word and what is right than the flaws in our society. - Author: Sunday Adelaja
Commitment quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#25. You make your own kinds of mistakes, and I'm sure you'll have your share of regrets in life. But commitment was never your problem, sweetie. You have a better chance of making this work than most forty-year-olds I know. My little middle-aged child. Luckily, you seem to have found another old soul. - Author: Stephenie Meyer
Commitment quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#26. The merits of leadership are so ingrained that it's natural to say, "I'll take the lead."
Sometimes, though, it may make more sense to take the follow. Leading when you don't know where to go, when you don't have the commitment or the passion, or worst of all, when you can't overcome your fear- that sort of leading is worse than none at all.
It takes guts to acknowledge that perhaps this time, right now, you can't lead. So get out of the way and take the follow instead. - Author: Seth Godin
Commitment quotes by Seth Godin
#27. The commitment of marriage can frequently arouse some rather peculiar behaviour in men and women alike, but the bizarre notion that one can change the character of one's mate seems to occur more often to women than to men. - Author: Alan Jay Lerner
Commitment quotes by Alan Jay Lerner
#28. We take the hamburger business more seriously than anyone else. - Author: Ray Kroc
Commitment quotes by Ray Kroc
#29. It is now, more than ever, necessary that political leaders be outstanding for honesty, integrity and commitment to the common good. - Author: Pope Francis
Commitment quotes by Pope Francis
#30. I do believe I am special. My special gift is my vision, my commitment, and my willingness to do whatever it takes. - Author: Anthony Robbins
Commitment quotes by Anthony Robbins
#31. In a dispassionate comparison of the relative values of human and robotic spaceflight, the only surviving motivation for continuing human spaceflight is the ideology of adventure. But only a tiny number of Earth's six billion inhabitants are direct participants. For the rest of us, the adventure is vicarious and akin to that of watching a science fiction movie. At the end of the day, I ask myself whether the huge national commitment of technical talent to human spaceflight and the ever-present potential for the loss of precious human life are really justifiable. - Author: James Van Allen
Commitment quotes by James Van Allen
#32. He didn't need a psychiatrist to point out that writing had its autoerotic side - you beat a typewriter instead of your meat, but both acts depended largely on quick wits, fast hands and a heartfelt commitment to the art of the farfetched. - Author: Stephen King
Commitment quotes by Stephen King
#33. When we fail to open the closed-minded consumers of racist ideas, we blame their closed-mindedness instead of our foolish decision to waste time reviving closed minds from the dead. When our vicious attacks on open-minded consumers of racist ideas fail to transform them, we blame their hate rather than our impatient and alienating hate of them. When people fail to consume our convoluted antiracist ideas, we blame their stupidity rather than our stupid lack of clarity. When we transform people and do not show them an avenue of support, we blame their lack of commitment rather than our lack of guidance. When the politician we supported does not change racist policy, we blame the intractability of racism rather than our support of the wrong politician. When we fail to gain support for a protest, we blame the fearful rather than our alienating presentation. When the protest fails, we blame racist power rather than our flawed protest. When our policy does not produce racial equity, we blame the people for not taking advantage of the new opportunity, not our flawed policy solution. The failure doctrine avoids the mirror of self-blame. The failure doctrine begets failure. The failure doctrine begets racism. - Author: Ibram X. Kendi
Commitment quotes by Ibram X. Kendi
#34. Loving someone is a full time commitment. Use that time wisely. Cherish the high points and fight hard to conquer the challenges. No one said love would be easy, but it is dam sure worth it. - Author: Carlos Wallace
Commitment quotes by Carlos Wallace
#35. I have nothing but the highest regard for 'Salon' and its commitment to independent and provocative journalism. - Author: Glenn Greenwald
Commitment quotes by Glenn Greenwald
#36. When we give it all, we can live with ourselves - regardless of the results. - Author: Zig Ziglar
Commitment quotes by Zig Ziglar
#37. Commitment in relationship, has today resurrected into an experienced Goliath, in a land where David is already dead and buried. Show me anyone who may be willing to face the new experienced Goliath? - Author: Francis Otieno
Commitment quotes by Francis Otieno
#38. I view every film as a commitment to undertake a long journey. I suppose this has to do with my need to leave no stone unturned, and sometimes to even dig deeper into the mine. - Author: Arnon Goldfinger
Commitment quotes by Arnon Goldfinger
#39. Much as you would like, you are not going to change people who feel it's part of their religious commitment to 'save' you. - Author: Jeanne Phillips
Commitment quotes by Jeanne Phillips
#40. Falling in love was simple; one had only to yield. Digesting another person, however, and sustaining love, was bloody work, and not a soft job. - Author: Hanif Kureishi
Commitment quotes by Hanif Kureishi
#41. Some people want everything to be perfect before they're willing to commit ... But commitment always precedes achievement. - Author: John C. Maxwell

Commitment quotes by Daniel Snyder
#44. They could have fought against it, begged for another way or gone off the path in hopes of finding an easier passage. Instead, they looked upon the trail ahead, the rough ridge, now bound by thick snow, and they accepted the path they had chosen. - Author: Sage Steadman
Commitment quotes by Sage Steadman
#45. A formal period in life where there isn't the worry of another person's dramas and insecurities can be of great advantage, especially when used for growing into the full and wholesome beings we intended to be when choosing to come to this material manifestation.
"Even after ending a long relationship or a marriage, it seems normal to have some alone-time to reflect, meditate, explore areas of interest, find meaning in one's suffering and try to placate the void felt in the heart before attempting to enter into new relationships, otherwise the same old mistakes will surely re-emerge.
"Once we're at the stage of life where we can stand our own silence, where we've made peace with our past, where we've accepted and grown from its lessons, and we would like to share our independence without becoming dependent on someone else for love and affection, then we can choose to commit to a two bodied intimate relationship. - Author: Nityananda Das
Commitment quotes by Nityananda Das
#46. He had never thought in his wildest imagination of marriage as an option for
him. Never believed there was a woman out there that would make him sign up for that particular brand of madness. And, in the abstract at least, it still sounded like madness but this wasn't about marriage, it was about Riley. With her, he knew that boyfriend-girlfriend shit wasn't going to be enough. He had to have her locked down. - Author: Nia Forrester
Commitment quotes by Nia Forrester
#47. To be an artist means to invite an occupation into your life that requires commitment and hard work, but the rewards and satisfaction you'll get make the work seem like play. But you have to do it every day. - Author: Veronica Lawlor
Commitment quotes by Veronica Lawlor
#48. To walk out of His will is to walk into nowhere. - Author: C.S. Lewis

Commitment quotes by Kishore Bansal
#52. One has to devote oneself to a particular pursuit. To be successful at anything, you have to make a total commitment to it. - Author: Donald Johanson
Commitment quotes by Donald Johanson
#53. Natural science, economics, and politics depend on literature, philosophy, and religion for educating the imagination... we cannot oppose facts to values, but... all facts are integrated into meaningful wholes through a personal commitment to some kind of vision of how things ought to be. If this universal hermeneutic claim is true, then the shaping of our imagination through historical, philosophical, and literary texts in the humanities is indeed paramount. - Author: Jens Zimmermann
Commitment quotes by Jens Zimmermann
#54. In a market economy, a main determinant of social standing is participation in the labor market and the associated willingness to 'self-commodify' (e.g., Esping-Andersen 1999), the latter term nicely emphasizing how market economies render all forms of worth, even self-worth, a function of market valuation. When individuals fail to self-commodify, they fall outside the most fundamental institutions of the society, thereby reducing them to nonentities and social ciphers. This is why a mere transfer of income to the underclass... is inconsequential in relieving feelings of social exclusion. If anything, such a transfer only draws attention to the initial failure to self-commodify. although a class map also embodies distinctions of social standing among those who have an enduring commitment to the labor market, the social divide between the underclass and all other classes looms especially large because it captures this fundamental insider-outsider distinction. - Author: Ravi Kanbur
Commitment quotes by Ravi Kanbur

negligence that makes discipline precious,
and confusion that makes order precious. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Commitment quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#56. However, for equity to create commitment rather than conflict, you must allocate it very carefully. Giving everyone equal shares is usually a mistake: every individual has different talents and responsibilities as well as different opportunity costs, so equal amounts will seem arbitrary and unfair from the start. On the other hand, granting different amounts up front is just as sure to seem unfair. Resentment at this stage can kill a company, but there's no ownership formula to perfectly avoid it. - Author: Peter Thiel
Commitment quotes by Peter Thiel
#57. Marriage is a total commitment and a total sharing of the total person with another person until death. - Author: Wayne Mack
Commitment quotes by Wayne Mack
#58. You don't need expensive classes and all kinds of weird equipment if you really want to be in shape. There are great ways to do it that are very economical, it just takes a time commitment, even if it means waking up a half hour a day before the rest of the household gets up because that's the only time you have. - Author: Padma Lakshmi
Commitment quotes by Padma Lakshmi
#59. Commercials are also any opportunity to meet new crew and work with new kind of rigs. You can explore working with different people without having to make the full commitment of having to do an entire feature film with them and see whether you like them. Also it's great for testing out new equipment, like on the last spot we just did, I used a lot of drone technology, really cutting edge drone stuff, more than I've ever done before, and it worked out really really well. - Author: Paul W. S. Anderson
Commitment quotes by Paul W. S. Anderson
#60. Without a sharp turnaround toward democracy and equality in the United States, Europe will be virtually alone in its commitment to social democracy. The pressures of low-wage immigrant labor, cheap imports from Eastern Europe and Asia, and free-market practices of governments are already threatening once secure areas of employment and causing right-wing populism to pop up in various Western European countries. Surprising numbers of middle-class and working-class voters have supported ultranationalist, neofascist parties throughout Europe because, like white male workers in the United States, they see their status slipping. - Author: Steve Brouwer
Commitment quotes by Steve Brouwer
#61. Let's not kid ourselves, we find mutual love only when we know how to love. And the best place to start practicing the art of love is with the self--that body, mind, heart, and soul that we can most know and change.
The one person who will never leave us, whom we will never lose, is ourselves. Learning to love our female selves is where our search for love must begin....rather than embracing faulty thinking that encourages us to believe that females are inherently loving, we make the choice to become loving. Choosing love, we affirm our agency, our commitment to personal growth, our emotional openness. - Author: Bell Hooks
Commitment quotes by Bell Hooks
#62. Compassion can be roughly defined in terms of a state of mind that is nonviolent, nonharming, and nonaggressive. It is a mental attitude based on the wish for others to be free of their suffering and is associated with a sense of commitment, responsibility, and respect towards others. - Author: Dalai Lama
Commitment quotes by Dalai Lama
#63. I saw soda pop for $1.20 a six pack. That price messes with your head. You start thinking you're gonna sell soda pop. Suddenly I've got packs of pop with me. "Looking to buy some pop? 50 cents a can. It's not refrigerated because this is a half-assed commitment!" - Author: Mitch Hedberg
Commitment quotes by Mitch Hedberg
#64. The picket line is the best place to train organizers. One day on the picket line is where a man makes his commitment. The longer on the picket line, the stronger the commitment. A lot of workers think they make their commitment by walking off the job when nobody sees them. But you get a guy to walk off the field when his boss is watching and, in front of the other guys, throw down his tools and march right to the picket line, that is the guy who makes our strike. The picket line is a beautiful thing because it makes a man more human. - Author: Cesar Chavez
Commitment quotes by Cesar Chavez
#65. It's often the case that teams working in agile processes do not actually go back to improve the user interface of the software. But, as the saying goes, "it's not iterative if you only do it once." Teams need to make a commitment to continuous improvement, and that means not simply refactoring code and addressing technical debt but also reworking and improving user interfaces. Teams must embrace the concept of UX debt and make a commitment to continuous improvement of the user experience. - Author: Jeff Gothelf
Commitment quotes by Jeff Gothelf
#66. If we move away from the American tradition of lawyers defending those with whom they vehemently disagree
as we temporarily did during the McCarthy period
we weaken our commitment to the rule of law ... So beware of an approach which limits advocacy to that which is approved by the standards of political correctness. - Author: Alan Dershowitz
Commitment quotes by Alan Dershowitz
#67. I believe that there are certain attributes in a woman that give her some advantages over a man. Women are usually more honest, more sensitive to issues and bring a stronger sense of commitment and dedication to what they do. Maybe because they were mothers, and being a mother you have that special attention for the family, for the young, for children. - Author: Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
Commitment quotes by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
#68. Great things happen through great commitments. Our commitment to the next generation is a pollution-free, toxic chemical-free, nuclear weapons-free, clean world. - Author: Amit Ray
Commitment quotes by Amit Ray
#69. I wasn't thinking of marriage, just commitment.
I wasn't thinking of forever, just reveling in now.
We don't know yet how long we're meant to be-
there are so many obstacles down the road.
But there is also possibility; the ring marks the realm of possibility. - Author: David Levithan
Commitment quotes by David Levithan
#70. Our Nation's founding commitment is still our deepest commitment: In our world, and here at home, we will extend the frontiers of freedom. - Author: George W. Bush
Commitment quotes by George W. Bush
#71. Every decision we make has to be evaluated in light of our life-changing commitment to being a servant of Christ and His kingdom. - Author: David Jeremiah
Commitment quotes by David Jeremiah
#72. But what was between them went further than a mating ceremony or a back carving or a witnessed exchange of commitment. He couldn't put his finger on the why of it ... but she was his missing puzzle piece, the twelfth in his dozen, the first and the last pages of his book. And at some level that was all he needed. - Author: J.R. Ward
Commitment quotes by J.R. Ward
#73. The all American work ethic, destructive enough by itself, also packs a gender double standard that strip-mines the natural resources of both parents. It has taught us that as their earnings and success increase, men become "more manly," while women become "less feminine." This perverse cultural dynamic gives fathers an incentive to stay away from their families and kill themselves at work, while coercing mothers to limit their career commitment, which in turn limits their wages and shortchanges their families. - Author: Letty Cottin Pogrebin
Commitment quotes by Letty Cottin Pogrebin
#74. The primary ambition of Nietzsche's critique of knowledge is ... to demonstrate that 'truths' are fictions masking moral commitments. - Author: John Carroll
Commitment quotes by John Carroll
#75. You may not be able to help whom you are attracted to, but you can choose to whom you love and how. That is to say that love is a commitment that your heart and your mind make. It is an active and ever-evolving process, a conscious choice that takes effort and maintenance. - Author: Niecy Nash
Commitment quotes by Niecy Nash
#76. I think live-in relations are for people who are not sure, and to an extent commitment phobic. - Author: Sonam Kapoor
Commitment quotes by Sonam Kapoor
#77. Allow your relationship to progress at its own pace. Enjoy each moment of each date, the courtship, the friendship, and the natural progression to commitment. If it is meant to be, it will happen. - Author: Pamela Cummins
Commitment quotes by Pamela Cummins
#78. Your business is based upon your commitment! - Author: John Di Lemme
Commitment quotes by John Di Lemme
#79. Im more keen on the person Im involved with showing me his commitment rather than going through a marriage to display commitment to the world. - Author: Greta Scacchi
Commitment quotes by Greta Scacchi
#80. It was not until I had graduated from college that I made a professional commitment to it. Frankly, I didn't think it wise. I was my own interior parental force, and it's very difficult to justify a profession as a dancer. - Author: Twyla Tharp
Commitment quotes by Twyla Tharp
#81. Even to be impaled by a happy fate makes you jerk against the knowledge of inevitability, of final commitment. - Author: Lynne Reid Banks
Commitment quotes by Lynne Reid Banks
#82. Humanity may destroy the possibilities for life on earth unless the freedom and power that we have acquired are channeled in new creative directions by a spiritual awareness and moral commitment that transcend nationalism, racism, sexism, religious sectarianism, anthropocentrism, and the dualism between human culture and nature. This is the great issue for the 1990s and the twenty-first century. - Author: Steven Clark Rockefeller
Commitment quotes by Steven Clark Rockefeller
#83. It is the Muslim's conception of himself as the khulifa of Allah on the earth that makes him the vortex of human history. Only as God's khulifa, and hence only in proper commitment to the vision of Islam, may man act responsibly in the totality of space-time. - Author: Ismail Al-Faruqi
Commitment quotes by Ismail Al-Faruqi
#84. The only parts that really matter and take commitment in wedding vows are; worse, sickness and poorer. Better, richer and healthy is pretty easy to deal with. - Author: Rob Liano
Commitment quotes by Rob Liano
#85. I love you in the future tense: I will love you, tomorrow and the day after and the day after that until there are no more days left for us. - Author: Chuck Wendig
Commitment quotes by Chuck Wendig
#86. All too often women believe it is a sign of commitment, an expression of love, to endure unkindness or cruelty, to forgive and forget. In actuality, when we love rightly we know that the healthy, loving response to cruelty and abuse is putting ourselves out of harm's way. - Author: Bell Hooks
Commitment quotes by Bell Hooks
#87. He wasn't a carrier of commitment-phobia or other notable boy diseases and he used expensive moisturizer. That's about all it takes to bang my gong. - Author: Diablo Cody
Commitment quotes by Diablo Cody
#88. To work with a director that has emotional commitment and passion toward the characters, and the piece, and the experiences, it only enriches your work. - Author: Jessica Lange
Commitment quotes by Jessica Lange
#89. Not really. I'm tired and I'd like to go to bed."
"At last, we agree on something." He moved toward her.
"Oh, no, you don't. I'm saving myself for my future husband."
"Thank you."
"It won't be you," she told him doggedly. "I'm not crazy enough to think that. You aren't a marrying man, remember? You don't want commitment."
"I don't know what I want anymore," he muttered.
"Well, I do," she said. "I want to go home."
"To a lonely apartment in Chicago?"
"It won't be lonely long," she assured him. "I'm going to start my very own lonely hearts chapter."
"Over my dead body."
"Nobody would want to meet over your old dead body. - Author: Diana Palmer

Commitment quotes by Vicci Martinez
#93. Our goal is to turn solar electric technologies into a commodity business like computer chips, and make them ubiquitous in the built environment. I'd couple this with a huge commitment to fundamental research in nanostructure to goose the next generation of more efficient, cheaper, dematerialized cells. And if I'm truly czar, I'd emphasize silicon technologies, as that approach is the one least likely to encounter material constraints in supplying an explosive global demand. - Author: Denis Hayes
Commitment quotes by Denis Hayes
#94. You are a paintbrush in hands of the Artist. - Author: Heidi Baker
Commitment quotes by Heidi Baker
#95. The corporation is the dominant and dominating institution of our time.

Commitment quotes by Oscar Auliq-Ice
#97. Contemplating the goodness within ourselves is a classical meditation, done to bring light, joy, and rapture to the mind. In contemporary times this practice might be considered rather embarrassing, because so often the emphasis is on all the unfortunate things we have done, all the disturbing mistakes we have made. Yet this classical reflection is not a way of increasing conceit. It is rather a commitment to our own happiness, seeing our happiness as the basis for intimacy with all of life. It fills us with joy and love for ourselves and a great deal of self-respect. Significantly, when we do metta practice, we begin by directing metta toward ourselves. This is the essential foundation for being able to offer genuine love to others - Author: Sharon Salzberg
Commitment quotes by Sharon Salzberg

Commitment quotes by Jeffrey Nielsen
#100. Despite all of the ghastliness in the world, human beings are made for goodness. The ones that are held in high regard are not militarily powerful, nor even economically prosperous. They have a commitment to try and make the world a better place. - Author: Desmond Tutu
Commitment quotes by Desmond Tutu
#101. Because right now, he is staring at me with these blue eyes. Not the usual blue. Not like my Mister-Know-It-All-blue. My mister has turquoise-blue eyes. This guy has a more sophisticated version of turquoise. His eyes are teal. Teal signifies trustworthiness and reliability. It promotes spiritual advancement and commitment. - Author: Ritika Chhabra
Commitment quotes by Ritika Chhabra
#102. Our Father's commitment to us, His children, is unwavering. Indeed He softens the winters of our lives, but He also brightens our summers. - Author: Thomas S. Monson
Commitment quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#103. In psychologist Robert Sternberg's triangular theory of love, he identifies three characteristics: passion, intimacy, and commitment. Passion is defined as physical attraction and sexual connection, intimacy as the sense of being close and bonded, and commitment as the decision to be together exclusively. As a romantic relationship moves through time, one of these three characteristics is carrying the most weight. Accordingly, although romantic love offers both intimacy and passion/sex, commitment is needed to complete the triangle. - Author: Susan Shapiro Barash
Commitment quotes by Susan Shapiro Barash
#104. I'm just shallow and self-interested, and don't get out much because I'm afraid of real commitments. - Author: Henry Rollins
Commitment quotes by Henry Rollins
#105. Serving my country was a life-changing experience for me. It was during those years that I realized the importance of commitment, dedication, honor, and discipline. I have never laughed so much; nor have I ever prayed so much. I made life-long friends. The leaders and heroes I served with helped shape me into the man I am today. I feel honored to have been a part of such a great tradition and grateful to others who have walked the same path. Thank you! - Author: Steve Maraboli
Commitment quotes by Steve Maraboli
#106. You'll never know everything about the person you've chosen to marry. But the more information you have before entering into this commitment, the less chance you will be confronted with unfulfillable expectations. - Author: Jerry Hardin
Commitment quotes by Jerry Hardin
#107. Godly fear is loving and trusting in Him. As we fear God more completely, we love Him more perfectly. And "perfect love casteth out all fear." I promise the bright light of godly fear will chase away the dark shadows of mortal fears as we look to the Savior, build upon Him as our foundation, and press forward on His covenant path with consecrated commitment. - Author: David A. Bednar
Commitment quotes by David A. Bednar
#108. I go through a loop in which I notice all the ways I am - for just an example - self-centered and careerist and not true to standards and values that transcend my own petty interests, and feel like I'm not one of the good ones; but then I countenance the fact that here at least I am worrying about it; so then I feel better about myself (I mean, at least this stuff is on my mind, at least I'm dissatisfied with my level of integrity and commitment); but this soon becomes a vehicle for feeling superior to (imagined) Others ... It has to do with God and gods and a basic sense of trust in the universe v. fear that the universe must be held at bay and micromanaged into giving me some smidgen of some gratification I feel I simply can't live without. It's all very confusing. I think I'm very honest and candid, but I'm also proud of how honest and candid I am - so where does that put me. - Author: D.T. Max
Commitment quotes by D.T. Max

Commitment quotes by Thad Cochran
#110. It is hope in this wider sense which enabled my father to build, from scratch, one of India's largest modern enterprises. His was an undertaking powered by hard work, initiative, self-belief but, above all else, the capacity, as he would often say, "to dream with your eyes wide open". - Author: Anil Ambani
Commitment quotes by Anil Ambani
#111. Merely exhorting people to be more committed to God - "just have more faith" - seldom produces greater confidence and dedicated trust in God. Rather, what is needed is a realistic picture of a flourishing life lived deeply in tune with God 's kingdom - a life that is so utterly compelling that failure to exercise greater commitment to life in that kingdom will feel like a foolish, tragic missed opportunity for entering into something truly dramatic and desirable. - Author: J.P. Moreland
Commitment quotes by J.P. Moreland
#112. The most prepared are the most dedicated. - Author: Raymond Berry
Commitment quotes by Raymond Berry
#113. A two-parent family based on love and commitment can be a wonderful thing, but historically speaking the "two-parent paradigm" has left an extraordinary amount of room for economic inequality, violence and male dominance. - Author: Stephanie Coontz
Commitment quotes by Stephanie Coontz
#114. Paying people a fair wage is a sign of respect and acknowledgement of the value of people's contributions to the business. When people are treated fairly and with respect, they will provide unparalleled levels of support and commitment inside the business, and to clients and customers. Everyone is more successful when people are paid a living wage. - Author: Amy B. Lyman
Commitment quotes by Amy B. Lyman

Commitment quotes by Jack Kornfield
#116. If we are going to solve the challenges we face, you need a President who will pursue genuine solutions day in and day out. And that is my commitment to you. We need immigration reform that will secure our borders, and punish employers who exploit immigrant labor; reform that finally brings the 12 million people who are here illegally out of the shadows by requiring them to take steps to become legal citizens. We must assert our values and reconcile our principles as a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws. That is a priority I will pursue from my very first day. - Author: Barack Obama
Commitment quotes by Barack Obama

Commitment quotes by Rhonda Abrams
#118. I believe that when we treat homosexual people as pariahs and push them outside our communities and churches; when we blame them for who they are; when we deny them our blessing on their commitment to lifelong, faithful relationships, we make them doubt whether they are children of God, made in his image. - Author: Steve Chalke
Commitment quotes by Steve Chalke
#119. To work with someone you love is something special, an incredible experience. But it could be a negative. You have to make a strong commitment to be honest; you're not just being polite, like strangers on an airplane; you're working. - Author: Diane Ladd
Commitment quotes by Diane Ladd
#120. As many political writers have pointed out, commitment to political equality is not an empirical claim that people are clones. - Author: Steven Pinker
Commitment quotes by Steven Pinker
#121. The story also pointed out that most big cities and towns have chambers of commerce and economic development offices, but what makes Itasca unique, participants say, is a commitment to hard data and McKinsey-style analysis, as well as a willingness to depart from the script that drives many private sector lobbies. - Author: Thomas L. Friedman
Commitment quotes by Thomas L. Friedman

#123. I've made a commitment that state spending in Vermont won't grow any more than the rate of inflation plus population growth. - Author: James Douglas
Commitment quotes by James Douglas
#124. Any relationship beyond acquaintanceship is composed of one to three qualities: passion, intimacy, and commitment. Simple friendship has one: intimacy. You can have other friends and you do not feel passionately about one another, or we are dealing with another animal. Most romantic relationships begin with a dollop of passion, often to the exclusion of anything else. The person in your arms is the best in the world, though you barely know him or her. You have never felt this way. Any gaps or deficits are temporarily puttied over by passion. When most people envision romantic love, this is where they stop. Romantic comedies but only rarely deal with washing your lover's dishes because they must be up early for work. No one wants to see the mundane when they can flip the channel to a desperate, emotionally-stunted frottage. The passion of infatuation triggers the release of addictive chemicals. We would rather get another hit than cope with the relative dullness of intimacy and commitment. - Author: Thomm Quackenbush
Commitment quotes by Thomm Quackenbush
#125. The beauty and the tragedy of the modern world is that it eliminates many situations that require people to demonstrate a commitment to the collective good. - Author: Sebastian Junger
Commitment quotes by Sebastian Junger
#126. The more clearly we recognize how deep our commitment to self-protection operates in our relational style and the more courageously we face the ugliness of protecting ourselves rather than loving others, the more we'll shift our direction. - Author: Larry Crabb
Commitment quotes by Larry Crabb

Commitment quotes by Andrea Jung
#128. I have to say that oil and gas revenues make up a large part of the Russian budget revenue. This is a serious component for us in addressing economic development, budget funding for our development programmes and, of course, and meeting of our social commitments to our citizens. - Author: Vladimir Putin
Commitment quotes by Vladimir Putin
#129. I knew that most people would consider us too young to talk about lifelong commitments or marriage, but I couldn't imagine taking her to bed without that promise. Even if it meant never being with her, I didn't want to have one desperate, hurried, hidden night. I wanted to put a ring on her finger. I wanted a future - or nothing. I knew, in her heart, that she would want that, too - Author: Beth Fantaskey
Commitment quotes by Beth Fantaskey
#130. I also do my own processing, so it means a big commitment in lab time. - Author: Leonard Nimoy
Commitment quotes by Leonard Nimoy
#131. Increasingly, there's much better material on television, but there's not always the time and money to make it, so you've got to make sure you make it in the right place. It also depends on time commitment; a lot of directors will make a pilot, but a series is just a whole other level of involvement. - Author: Cary Fukunaga
Commitment quotes by Cary Fukunaga
#132. Lack of interest in mission is not fundamentally caused by an absence of compassion or commitment, nor by lack of information or exhortation. And lack of interest in mission is not remedied by more shocking statistics, more gruesome stories or more emotionally manipulative commands to obedience. It is best remedied by intensifying peoples' passion for Christ, so that the passions of his heart become the passions that propel our hearts. - Author: Tim A. Dearborn
Commitment quotes by Tim A. Dearborn
#133. Old as I am in age, I have no feeling that I have ceased to grow inwardly or that my growth will stop at the dissolution of the flesh. What I am concerned with is my readiness to obey the call of Truth, my God, from moment to moment, no matter how inconsistent it may appear. My commitment is to Truth, not to consistency. - Author: Mahatma Gandhi
Commitment quotes by Mahatma Gandhi

Commitment quotes by Elbert Hubbard
#136. All the vital components that make a relationship successful, without any of the emotional messiness to drag it down. It's about respect, caring, and commitment. Shared goals and compatible priorities. It's about treating marriage like a partnership instead of some romantic fantasy. It's about two people liking each other. - Author: Mira Lyn Kelly
Commitment quotes by Mira Lyn Kelly

Commitment quotes by Wes Fesler
#140. There is a strong religious commitment to the sanctity of human life, but, paradoxically, some of the most fervent protectors of microscopic stem cells are the most ardent proponents of the death penalty. - Author: Jimmy Carter
Commitment quotes by Jimmy Carter
#141. Instead of running from what you don't want, walk with commitment toward what you desire. Focus on where you are going rather than being obsessed with where you have been. - Author: Iyanla Vanzant
Commitment quotes by Iyanla Vanzant
#142. I am President of the UN created University for Peace, which has a strong commitment to the relationship between peace, security and the environment. I meet with young people around the world and I always come away enthused and encouraged. - Author: Maurice Strong
Commitment quotes by Maurice Strong
#143. Our commitment should be to leave our environment in better shape than when we found it, our nation's fiscal house in better order, our public infrastructure in better repair, and our people better educated and healthier. To indulge in immediate gratification and exploitation is an insult to previous generations, who sacrificed for us, and thievery from the next generation, who depend on our virtue. - Author: Eric Liu
Commitment quotes by Eric Liu
#144. In order for us to live within this finely balanced constellation of complex systems, in order for the Earth to show resilience and last for centuries into the future as an environment of human life, we have to embody three things: a respect for Earth systems and their details in balance; a commitment to discovering and sharing the truth and only the truth at all times about all things; and a commitment to doing no harm. - Author: Robert David Steele
Commitment quotes by Robert David Steele
#145. Far too often, the best thing I can have in my hand when someone makes a promise is a really big broom so that I can sweep up the broken pieces. - Author: Craig D. Lounsbrough
Commitment quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#146. a pianist, I can't say I was always a big fan of contemporary music. The challenge of late Beethoven, or Mozart, or Schubert seemed to me to be somehow greater or more worthwhile than that of learning difficult, ill-placed notes. To me, the kind of transcendence in the older pieces really was more interesting. That's not to say I didn't love the contemporary pieces I did play. I became very attached to the ones I learned, and I played them with pleasure and absolute commitment. It may be terrible to say this, but playing some of that music is like having a handicapped child. You love it all the more for the problems that it gives you. - Author: Leon Fleisher
Commitment quotes by Leon Fleisher
#147. Good and safe" are all I have been during my romantic career, keeping myself virtuous outside of relationships never putting out before I had a commitment and a half dozen dates under my belt. - Author: Valentine Glass
Commitment quotes by Valentine Glass
#148. Love is the only emotion strong enough to sweep us off our feet, but remain unmoved when we are knocked to our knees. And if I am willing to embrace the former but flee from the latter, I've confused love with infatuation. - Author: Craig D. Lounsbrough
Commitment quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#149. Our detachments move us toward freedom and death. - Author: Mason Cooley
Commitment quotes by Mason Cooley

Commitment quotes by John C. Maxwell
#151. Behind great men, children, companies or homes are some extraordinary women! Take time today and always to acknowledge the women in your life with a show of gratitude. Love compels a woman's heart. Appreciation drives her commitment. Kindness fuels her strength. Compassion gives her courage. God gives her to you. - Author: Carlos Wallace
Commitment quotes by Carlos Wallace
#152. I like Jackie [Chan] because I've been a fan of Jackie's forever. He's broken every bone in his body for his commitment and dedication to doing his own stunts. So he's the real deal. - Author: Jason Statham
Commitment quotes by Jason Statham
#153. This is not (as you have charged) to paint religion with a broad brush. I am very quick to distinguish gradations of bad ideas; some clearly have no consequences at all (or at least not yet); some put civilization itself in peril. The problem with dogmatism, however, is that one can never quite predict how terrible its costs will be. To use one of my favorite examples, consider the Christian dogma that human life begins at the moment of conception: On its face, this belief seems likely to only improve our world. After all, it is the very quintessence of a life-affirming doctrine.

Enter embryonic stem-cell research. Suddenly, this "life begins at the moment of conception" business becomes the chief impediment to medical progress. Who would have thought that such an innocuous idea could unnecessarily prolong the agony of tens of millions of people? This is the problem with dogmatism, no matter how seemingly benign: it is unresponsive to reality. Dogmatism is a failure of cognition (as well as a commitment to such failure); it is the state of being closed to new evidence and new arguments. And this frame of mind is rightly despised in every area of culture, on every subject, except where it goes by the name of "religious faith." In this guise, parading its most grotesque faults as virtues, it is granted a special dispensation, even in the pages of Nature. - Author: Sam Harris
Commitment quotes by Sam Harris
#154. Do anything totally and it is finished; you will not carry a psychological memory of it. Do anything incompletely and it hangs with you. - Author: Osho

Commitment quotes by Abdul Kalam
#156. So I hope to stretch my acting skills. I got to a point in my dancing where I felt like I did so much hard work and I achieved a lot of great things, and I wanted to try something else and put that same kind of commitment that I did into my dancing into something that I was also passionate about. I had so many opportunities with my dance and now I'm just excited to get better as an actress. - Author: Julianne Hough
Commitment quotes by Julianne Hough
#157. Build a strong faith in God through daily commitment in reading and obeying God's word. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Commitment quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#158. The marriage relationship is one of God's creations for building up people. It gives husbands and wives the chance to minister to an immortal human being in a uniquely intimate fashion. To enjoy the meaningfulness of marriage, then, requires a once-made but ongoing commitment of mutual ministry to our mates and the more we seize them, the more meaning our marriage will have. - Author: Larry Crabb
Commitment quotes by Larry Crabb
#159. Prayer is commitment. We don't merely co-operate with God with certain things held back within. We, the total person, co-operate. This means that co-operation equals committment. - Author: E. Stanley Jones
Commitment quotes by E. Stanley Jones
#160. Jase and I made a deliberate decision while we were dating to remain sexually pure until we were married. Keeping that commitment was not easy, but we did it. We decided to trust God, and we were determined to honor His Word no matter how much of a struggle it was. The important thing is we made it! Two years, ten months, and two days, but who was counting? The first sexual experience either one of us ever had took place with each other on our wedding night. Jase often says it was more like an exploratory biological experiment! We have remained faithful to one another and our marriage vows since that day. - Author: Missy Robertson
Commitment quotes by Missy Robertson

Commitment quotes by John McCain
#164. A promise must never be broken. - Author: Alexander Hamilton
Commitment quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#165. If we want to make sense of the possibility of successful inductive inference, and if we want to explain the possibility of laws of nature, we will need to appeal to something like natural kinds. This is, to be sure, a metaphysical commitment, but it is a metaphysical commitment that is implicit in science, as I see it. - Author: Hilary Kornblith
Commitment quotes by Hilary Kornblith
#166. Any goal, regardless of how much it's cherished or how earnestly it's developed, will make little progress unless it is supported by commitment. Without commitment, the goals we set for ourselves are mere dreams - ideas that don't have the footing to be realized. Just as motivation provides the energy to set goals and begin the journey, commitment provides the power to stick with it over time so that goals can be actualized. - Author: Heidi Reeder
Commitment quotes by Heidi Reeder
#167. A novel can educate to some extent, but first a novel has to entertain. That's the contract with the reader: you give me ten hours and I'll give you a reason to turn every page. I have a commitment to accessibility. I believe in plot. I want an English professor to understand the symbolism while at the same time I want the people I grew up with - who may not often read anything but the Sears catalog - to read my books. - Author: Barbara Kingsolver
Commitment quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#168. Discipleship is crucial to our ultimate destiny, but its cost is total commitment. - Author: David Jeremiah
Commitment quotes by David Jeremiah
#169. In sharp contrast with our culture, the Bible teaches that the essence of marriage is a sacrificial commitment to the good of the other. That means that love is more fundamentally action than emotion. But in talking this way, there is a danger of falling into the opposite error that characterized many ancient and traditional societies. It is possible to see marriage as merely a social transaction, a way of doing your duty to family, tribe and society. Traditional societies made the family the ultimate value in life, and so marriage was a mere transaction that helped your family's interest. By contrast, contemporary Western societies make the individual's happiness the ultimate value, and so marriage becomes primarily an experience of romantic fulfillment. But the Bible sees GOD as the supreme good - not the individual or the family - and that gives us a view of marriage that intimately unites feelings AND duty, passion AND promise. That is because at the heart of the Biblical idea of marriage is the covenant. - Author: Timothy J. Keller
Commitment quotes by Timothy J. Keller

Commitment quotes by Marvin J. Ashton
#177. You let your motivation shine, and other people are attracted to your passion and commitment. - Author: Lodro Rinzler
Commitment quotes by Lodro Rinzler
#178. Jesus said, "Any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple" (Luke 14:33). We must honestly face the question, "Am I willing to give up a certain practice or habit that is keeping me from holiness?" It is at this point of commitment that most of us fail. We prefer to dally with sin, to try to play with it a little without getting too deeply involved. - Author: Jerry Bridges
Commitment quotes by Jerry Bridges
#179. But there's something to be said for truly caring. For making a commitment and sticking to it. For having the strength of character to decide what you think is important and then going out and making it happen no matter how hard or crazy or unpopular it might seem. - Author: Michael Baron
Commitment quotes by Michael Baron
#180. Women are often belittled for trying to resurrect these men and bring them back to life and to love. They are in a world that would be even more alienated and violent if caring women did not do the work of teaching men who have lost touch with themselves how to love again. This labor of love is futile only when the men in question refuse to awaken, refuse growth. At this point it is a gesture of self-love for women to break their commitment and move on. - Author: Bell Hooks
Commitment quotes by Bell Hooks
#181. The second is that some things become true simply by being spoken. When she said to the little girl "I'm here for you", the architecture of her mind, her definition of herself, shifted and reconfigured around that statement. She became committed, or maybe just acknowledged a commitment. It has nothing to do with guilt for earlier crimes (although she has a pretty fair understanding of what she deserves), or any hope of redemption. It's just the outermost point on an arc. She's risen as far as she can, and now she's falling again, no longer in control (if she ever was to start with) of her own movements. - Author: M.R. Carey
Commitment quotes by M.R. Carey
#182. It iscrucial that we understand lesbian/feminism in the deepest, most radical sense: as that love for ourselves and other women, that commitment to the freedom of all of us, which transcends the category of "sexual preference" and the issue of civil rights, to become a politics of asking women's questions, demanding a world in which the integrity of all women
not a chosen few
shall be honored and validated in every respect of culture. - Author: Adrienne Rich
Commitment quotes by Adrienne Rich
#183. Because God is faithful, He can be trusted fully to completely carry out His commitments to us in Christ. - Author: Jimmy Swaggart
Commitment quotes by Jimmy Swaggart
#184. I have great respect for the LDS church - their commitment to family and taking care of each other is exemplary. I just don't believe the tenets of the faith that they believe. - Author: Kyrsten Sinema
Commitment quotes by Kyrsten Sinema
#185. Thankfully, President Obama has stood firmly behind women's health care issues by supporting coverage for contraception and reaffirming commitment to organizations like Planned Parenthood. - Author: Felicity Huffman

Commitment quotes by Beth Moore
#192. I will always tell the truth and do what I said I would do. - Author: Ted Cruz
Commitment quotes by Ted Cruz
#193. The only perfect love to be found on earth is not sexual love, which is riddled with hostility and insecurity, but the wordless commitment of families, which takes as its model mother-love. This is not to say that fathers have no place, for father-love, with its driving for self-improvement and discipline, is also essential to survival, but that uncorrected father-love, father-love as it were practiced by both parents, is a way to annihilation. - Author: Germaine Greer
Commitment quotes by Germaine Greer
#194. When you write things down, you commit to doing them. If you simply tell me what you want to do, there is really no commitment to getting it done. - Author: David Cottrell
Commitment quotes by David Cottrell
#195. Laughing,Savannah jumped from her precarious perch on the boulder into the safety of Gregori's arms.
He caught her,crushing her against his chest, sheer elation, exhilaration, rushing through his veins. To feel again was beyond his comprehension, to feel like this, to have such joy in him, was totally unbelievable. He whispered to her in the ancient language, words of love and commitment that he could not find a way to express in any other language. She was more than she could ever know to him; she was his life,the very air he breathed. You worry about the most ridiculous things, he said gruffly, burying his face for just a moment against her neck,inhaling her scent.
"Do I?" she asked aloud,her eyes dancing at him. "You're the one always concerned I'm going to do something wild."
"You do wild things," he answered complacently. "I never know what you are going to do next. It is a good thing I reside in your mind, ma petite, or I would have to be locked up in the nearest asylum."
Her lips brushed his chin, feathered along his jaw, then nibbled enticingly at the edge of his mouth. "I think you should be locked up.You're postively lethal to women."
"Not to women,only to you. - Author: Christine Feehan
Commitment quotes by Christine Feehan
#196. The violence in the Executioner books is merely stage-dressing for dramatizing the commitment and dedication Bolan has to his ideals and the lengths to which he will go to honor them. We can learn this message of love and commitment and carry it into our own lives without the violence and bloodshed, and of course it is this wish that fuels the writing. I do not want my readers to pick up a gun and follow Bolan's example; I want them to be stirred by his commitment and to find ways to meet the same challenges without resort to violent means. - Author: Don Pendleton

#197. In the secular world, women are also credited with having a sense of good that is intrinsically female, a sense of good that men do not have. This is a frequent feature of contemporary environmentalist or antimilitarist movements. Women are seen to have an inborn commitment to both clean air and peace, a moral nature that abhors pollution and murder. Being good or moral is viewed as a particular biological capacity of women and as a result women are the natural guardians of morality: a moral vanguard as it were. Organizers use this appeal to women all the time. Motherhood is especially invoked as biological proof that women have a special relationship to life, a special sensitivity to its meaning, a special, intuitive knowledge of what is right. Any political group can appropriate the special moral sensibility of women to its own ends: most groups do, usually in place of offering substantive relief to women with respect to sexism in the group itself. Women all along the male-defined political spectrum give special credence to this view of a female biological nature that is morally good. - Author: Andrea Dworkin

#200. Just because the road ahead is long, is no reason to slow down. Just because there is much work to be done, is no reason to get discouraged. It is a reason to get started, to grow, to find new ways, to reach within yourself and discover strength, commitment, and determination. The road ahead is long and difficult, but it's filled with opportunity. Start what needs starting. Finish what needs finishing. Get on the road. Stay on the road. Don't give up. - Author: Ralph Marston
