#1. A half-hearted spirit has no power. Tentative efforts lead to tentative outcomes. Average people enter into their endeavors headlong and without care. - Author: Epictetus
Endeavors quotes by Epictetus
#2. It is this unification and simplification of knowledge that gives us hope for the future of our culture. To the extent that we encourage future generations to understand deeply, to see previously unseen connections, and to follow their conviction that such endeavors are noble undertakings of the human spirit, we will have contributed to a brighter future. - Author: Carver Mead
Endeavors quotes by Carver Mead
#3. Nor was civil society founded merely to preserve the lives of its members; but that they might live well: for otherwise a state might be composed of slaves, or the animal creation ... nor is it an alliance mutually to defend each other from injuries, or for a commercial intercourse. But whosoever endeavors to establish wholesome laws in a state, attends to the virtues and vices of each individual who composes it; from whence it is evident, that the first care of him who would found a city, truly deserving that name, and not nominally so, must be to have his citizens virtuous. - Author: Aristotle.
Endeavors quotes by Aristotle.
#4. Idleness and timidity often despair without being overcome, and forbear attempts for fear of being defeated; and we may promote the invigoration of faint endeavors, by showing what has already been performed. - Author: Samuel Johnson
Endeavors quotes by Samuel Johnson
#5. There is a beginning and end to all life - and to all human endeavors. Species evolve and die off. Empires rise, then break apart. Businesses grow, then fold. There are no exceptions. I'm OK with all that. Yet it pains me to bear witness to the sixth great extinction, where we humans are directly responsible for the extirpation of so many wonderful creatures and invaluable indigenous cultures. It saddens me to observe the plight of our own species; we appear to be incapable of solving our problems. - Author: Yvon Chouinard
Endeavors quotes by Yvon Chouinard
#6. It is the right of a free individual to be unhindered in their liberty!
Especially to fail in their endeavors!
Only in this manner are they truly free. - Author: Keith Parfitt
Endeavors quotes by Keith Parfitt

Endeavors quotes by Bill Bryson
#9. Public opinion takes no offense at the endeavors of farmers, workers, clerks, teachers, doctors, ministers, and people from many other callings to earn as much as they can. But it censures the capitalists and entrepreneurs for their greed. - Author: Ludwig Von Mises
Endeavors quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#10. In all thy undertakings, let a reasonable assurance animate thy endeavors if thou despairest of success, thou shalt not succeed. - Author: Akhenaton
Endeavors quotes by Akhenaton

Endeavors quotes by William J. Clinton
#13. We see not because everything is visible, but because something always defies the eye, persisting beyond the remit of mere representation. This something, which Pasolini endeavors to situate at the heart of filmmaking, is preceisely 'that which always escapes from the grasp of that form of vision that is satisfied with itself in imagining itself as consicousness' (Lacan, 1998). - Author: Fabio Vighi
Endeavors quotes by Fabio Vighi
#14. All true cultural creativity happens at the edges of the horizons of the possible, so by definition our most culturally creative endeavors have a high risk of failure. - Author: Andy Crouch
Endeavors quotes by Andy Crouch
#15. There was more to modern mining than logic. The best engineers had feel. It was a sensitivity born of experience, of talent, and even of something like love, with which they commanded, not only the mountains, but the machine they rode and directed. Now this too was added to the list of man's endeavors for which some special talent was needed. - Author: Gordon R. Dickson
Endeavors quotes by Gordon R. Dickson
#16. I think our science is a marvelous tool. Of course it has its politics, its failings, its mistakes, like all other human endeavors, but I think the methodology of our science - using it to postulate and to use the proper approach of creating falsifiable hypotheses and then testing them to see if they ring true, and then progressing by finding the anomalies to our theoretical structure, and then improving our theoretical structure to take care and test the anomalies - is the way to go, because that helps us discover what the universe.is all about and our relationship to it. - Author: Edgar Mitchell
Endeavors quotes by Edgar Mitchell
#17. Align your feelings and endeavors with the highest vibration in the universe - love - and success will always be yours. - Author: Donna Labermeier
Endeavors quotes by Donna Labermeier
#18. True Godliness doesn't turn men out of the world, but enables them to live better in it, and excites their endeavors to mend it ... We have nothing that we can call our own; no, not our selves: for we are all but Tenants, and at Will, too, of the great Lord of our selves, and the rest of this great farm, the World that we live upon. - Author: William Penn
Endeavors quotes by William Penn
#19. We develop a hopeful mind-set when we understand that some worthy endeavors will be difficult and time consuming and not enjoyable at all. Hope also requires us to understand that just because the process of reaching a goal happens to be fun, fast, and easy doesn't mean that it has less value than a difficult goal. If we want to cultivate hopefulness, we have to be willing to be flexible and demonstrate perseverance. Not every goal will look and feel the same. Tolerance for disappointment, determination, - Author: Brene Brown
Endeavors quotes by Brene Brown
#20. December 16, 1846, the fifteen composing the "Forlorn Hope," left Donner Lake. January 17, 1847, as they reached Johnson's ranch; and February 5th Capt. Tucker's party started to the assistance of the emigrants. This first relief arrived February 19th at the cabins; the second relief, or Reed's party, arrived March 1st; the third, or Foster's, about the middle of March; and the fourth, or Fallon's, on the seventeenth of April. Upon the arrival of Capt. Fallon's company, the sight presented at the cabins beggars all description. Capt. R. P. Tucker, now of Goleta, Santa Barbara County, Cal., endeavors, in his correspondence, to give a slight idea of the scene. - Author: C.F. McGlashan
Endeavors quotes by C.F. McGlashan
#21. In our blessed and mostly peaceful society we're not as familiar with courage as we once were. We ascribe the virtue to all manner of endeavors that only really require skill, fortitude and a little daring, the qualities Pat Tillman showed on the football field. Pat's best service to his country was to remind us all what courage really looks like, and that the purpose of all good courage is love. - Author: John McCain
Endeavors quotes by John McCain
#22. Being a thoughtful person, I always have indulged myself in to things, life brought in my way and come-up with my own definitions and meanings of them. Somewhere deep into myself I always have been making conscious endeavors to improve my nature in order to uplift my life in a way that each moment I live enhance my interest in living the life and enjoy the beauty it encompass in itself.
I found life is always "Imperfect". Whenever, I saw flowers, I saw thorns with them as well with which they have made compromise in order to live and look beautiful. I saw butterflies with such little visual acuity that they cannot see the beauty of the garden they roam around. So I realized, these flowers and butterflies are there to beautify somebody else's world and they are not living for their selves only. This is life, that is how it works. So for me, it is interesting and beautiful when it has to do something good with somebody else as well. - Author: Amna Farooq
Endeavors quotes by Amna Farooq
#23. We are not asking for something spectacular but rather for our sisters to find real self-fulfillment through wise self-development in the pursuit of righteous and worthy endeavors. - Author: Spencer W. Kimball
Endeavors quotes by Spencer W. Kimball
#24. In short, if we adhere to the standard of perfection in all our endeavors, we are left with nothing but mathematics and the White Album. - Author: Daniel M. Gilbert
Endeavors quotes by Daniel M. Gilbert
#25. When is there a boy, even in these materialistic times, to whom the call of the wild and the open road does not appeal? Maybe it is the primitive instinct, anyway it is there. With that key a great door may be unlocked, if it is only to admit fresh air and sunshine into lives that were otherwise grey.
The heroes of the wild, the frontiersmen and explorers, the rovers of the seas, the airmen of the clouds, are pied pipers to the boys. Where they lead the boys will follow and these will dance to their tune when it sings the song of manliness and pluck, of adventure and high endeavors of efficiency and skill, of cheerful sacrifice of self for others. There's meat in this for the boy. There's soul in it. - Author: Baden-Powell Robert Baden-Powell
Endeavors quotes by Baden-Powell Robert Baden-Powell
#26. Lord, behold our family here assembled. We thank You for this place in which we dwell, for the love accorded us this day, for the hope with which we expect the morrow; for the health, the work, the food and the bright skies that make our lives delightful; for our friends in all parts of the earth. Give us courage and gaiety and the quiet mind. Spare us to our friends, soften us to our enemies. Bless us, if it may be, in all our innocent endeavors; if it may not, give us strength to endure that which is to come that we may be brave in peril, constant in tribulation, temperate in wrath and in all changes of fortune and down to the gates of death, loyal and loving to one another. We beseech of you this help and mercy for Christ's sake. - Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
Endeavors quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#27. Our first endeavors are purely instinctive prompting of an imagination vivid and undisciplined. As we grow older reason asserts itself and we become more and more systematic and designing. But those early impulses, though not immediately productive, are of the greatest moment and may shape our very destinies. Indeed, I feel now that had I understood and cultivated instead of suppressing them, I would have added substantial value to my bequest to the world. But not until I had attained manhood did I realize that I was an inventor. - Author: Nikola Tesla
Endeavors quotes by Nikola Tesla
#28. Most people spend their lives on their endeavors, and I get the privilege to have been doing this since I was five. I get to go play and have fun and entertain people. - Author: Drake Bell
Endeavors quotes by Drake Bell
#29. CeNation. Wwe reports that last night at approximatley 9pm est. It terminated its contract with cousin of john cena, juan. The wwe wishes juan the best of luck in his future endeavors. - Author: John Cena

Endeavors quotes by Wade Boggs
#31. When a woman endeavors to free herself, all social mechanisms conspire to keep her enslaved. - Author: Marty Rubin
Endeavors quotes by Marty Rubin
#32. Successful people got to where they did because they did something, and all successful endeavors exist because of those who acted. - Author: Stephen Richards
Endeavors quotes by Stephen Richards
#33. Fourth, leading is the most effective action to take to succeed in all of life's endeavors. If you are not leading, you cannot be sure you are going in the direction you want to go. - Author: W. Anton
Endeavors quotes by W. Anton
#34. Organization doesn't really accomplish anything. Plans don't accomplish anything, either. Theories of management don't much matter. Endeavors succeed or fail because of the people involved. Only by attracting the best people will you accomplish great deeds. - Author: Colin Powell
Endeavors quotes by Colin Powell
#35. The most meaningful endeavors are the ones that come without an end. - Author: Chris Matakas
Endeavors quotes by Chris Matakas
#36. The dilemma felt by science fiction writers will be perceived in other creative endeavors. - Author: Vernor Vinge
Endeavors quotes by Vernor Vinge
#37. World peace, true love, and happily-ever-afters amount to wasted wishes, failed endeavors, and most precious dreams. - Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
Endeavors quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#38. The spirit of life relates to what has been described by the word "heaven"; the phenomenal world around us to what is described by the word "earth." Heaven and earth are one. Only man, in his foolishness, endeavors to separate them. To the extent that he is successful in this it becomes hell in his own experience. Hell is simply the absence of the experience of heaven; it is the absence of the experience of life, in whatever degree. The experience of life as it really is, is heaven. - Author: Martin Cecil
Endeavors quotes by Martin Cecil
#39. The true measure of a career is to be able to be content, even proud, that you succeeded through your own endeavors without leaving a trail of casualties in your wake. - Author: Alan Greenspan
Endeavors quotes by Alan Greenspan
#40. Life is too short to waste on unproductive endeavors - Author: Blake L. Higginbotham
Endeavors quotes by Blake L. Higginbotham
#41. Happy indeed is the scientist who not only has the pleasures which I have enumerated, but who also wins the recognition of fellow scientists and of the mankind which ultimately benefits from his endeavors. - Author: Irving Langmuir
Endeavors quotes by Irving Langmuir
#42. If everything you do needs to work on a three-year time horizon, then you're competing against a lot of people. But if you're willing to invest on a seven-year time horizon, you're now competing against a fraction of those people ... Just by lengthening the time horizon, you can engage in endeavors that you could never otherwise pursue - Author: Jeff Bezos
Endeavors quotes by Jeff Bezos
#43. May life continue to inspire you for good works and an, inevitable, outcome. May wisdom never fail your endeavors . . . - Author: King Davis
Endeavors quotes by King Davis
#44. Though Jones had formerly believed himself in the very prime of youth and vigor, his first encounter with Lady Bellaston both vexed and puzzled him. For though his own youthful appetites were quickly sated, hers were ravenous and almost beyond his power to satisfy. Her kisses and caresses were a source of inexpressible delight; yet when all was over it was he who collapsed into the most profound slumber. Early the next morning she took him shopping, her manner fresh and cheerful. Jones could not fathom her spritely behavior. And in spite of all his best endeavors, he could scarcely keep his eyes open. - Author: Henry Fielding
Endeavors quotes by Henry Fielding
#45. If you can forget the stultifying concept that there are appropriate years for certain endeavors (like getting married) and appropriate days for being gay and merry (like Saturday nights) and use these times without embarrassment or self-pity to do something creative and constructive, I believe half your single girl battle is over. - Author: Helen Gurley Brown
Endeavors quotes by Helen Gurley Brown
#46. What is called economic progress is the joint effect of the activities of the three progressive groups-or classes-of the savers, the scientist-inventors, and the entrepreneurs, operating in a market economy as far as it is not sabotaged by the endeavors of the nonprogressive majority of the routinists and the public policies supported by them. - Author: Ludwig Von Mises
Endeavors quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#47. Let us each day search from the scriptures and from the prophets ... . The scriptures that are never read will never help us. If read, the words of God will nourish our souls and carry us to great heights in our endeavors. - Author: L. Tom Perry
Endeavors quotes by L. Tom Perry
#48. Before cruelly vilifying them from a great height, the mudslingers at newspapers and journals should bear in mind that all artistic endeavors were by and large a mixture of effort and imagination, the embodiment of a solitary endeavor, of a sometimes long-nurtured dream, when they were not a desperate bid to give life meaning. - Author: Felix J. Palma
Endeavors quotes by Felix J. Palma
#49. In all human endeavors that deal with what is unthinkable, too terrible to be dealt with squarely, we turn to what is familiar and regimented: funerals, wakes, and even wars. Now, in this trial, we had gone beyond our empathy with the pain of the victims and our niggling realization that the defendant was a fragmented personality. He knew the rules, he even knew a great deal about the law, but he did not seem to be cognizant of what was about to happen to him. He seemed to consider himself irrefragable. And what was about to happen to him was vital for the good of society. I could not refute that. It had to be, but it seemed hollow that none of us understood that his ego, our egos and the rituals of the courtroom itself, the jokes and the nervous laughter were veiling the gut reactions that we should all be facing. We were all on "this railroad train running … - Author: Ann Rule
Endeavors quotes by Ann Rule
#50. The philosophical study of nature endeavors, in the the vicissitudes of phenomena, to connect the present with the past. - Author: Alexander Von Humboldt
Endeavors quotes by Alexander Von Humboldt
#51. A form of government that is not the result of a long sequence of shared experiences, efforts, and endeavors can never take root. - Author: Napoleon Bonaparte
Endeavors quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#52. Dynamite, which was invented in 1867 by Swedish chemist Alfred Nobel, was a godsend for anarchists and other militants, since it was a powerful weapon that was easy to conceal. Nobel was so dismayed to see his invention used for violent purposes - he had intended it to be used for peaceful endeavors such as construction - that he left millions of dollars in his will to establish the annual Nobel Prizes, including the Nobel Peace Prize. - Author: Jeffrey D. Simon
Endeavors quotes by Jeffrey D. Simon
#53. I want to demonstrate the love of God through my medical missionary endeavors, solely out of appreciation and not trying to work my way to heaven. - Author: Warren Frankel
Endeavors quotes by Warren Frankel
#54. I bear within me the seed, the rudiments, the possibility of life's capacities and endeavors. Where might I be, if I were not here? Who, what, how could I be, if I were not me, if this outward appearance that is me did not encase me, separating my consciousness from that of others who are not me? An organism - a blind, rash, pitiful eruption of the insistent assertion of the will. Far better, really, if that will were to drift free in a night without time or space, than to languish in a prison cell lit only by the flickering, uncertain flame of the intellect. - Author: Thomas Mann
Endeavors quotes by Thomas Mann
#55. Today the combat takes a different shape; instead of wishing to put man in a prison, woman endeavors to escape from one; she no longer seeks to drag him into the realms of immanence but to emerge, herself, into the light of transcendence. Now the attitude of the males creates a new conflict: it is with a bad grace that the man lets her go. - Author: Ira Levin
Endeavors quotes by Ira Levin
#56. Celia endeavors to be as helpful as she can, which consists mainly of fetching cups of tea and finding new and creative ways to assure people everything will be fine. - Author: Erin Morgenstern
Endeavors quotes by Erin Morgenstern

Endeavors quotes by Roman Coppola
#58. but because she had at once classed him in that catalogue of bipeds whom Plato endeavors to withdraw from the appellation of men, and whom Diogenes designated as animals upon two legs without feathers. Unfortunately, - Author: Alexandre Dumas
Endeavors quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#59. After years of working with missionaries, I am tempted to conclude that their endeavors merely prolong a dying race's agonies for ten or twenty years. The merciful plowman shoots a trusty horse grown too old for service. As philanthropists, might it not be our duty to likewise ameliorate the savages' sufferings by hastening their extinction? Think of your Red Indians, Adam, think on the treaties you Americans abrogate & renege on, time & time & time again. More humane, surely & more honest, just to knock the savages on the head & get it over with? - Author: David Mitchell
Endeavors quotes by David Mitchell
#60. I have about four different endeavors I'm going after right now. They all excite me in different ways. I'm all about keeping as many irons in the fire as possible. I'm writing music, trying to write a book (aren't we all?), putting a festival together, speaking ... It keeps life interesting. - Author: Kevin Griffin
Endeavors quotes by Kevin Griffin
#61. Wars of aggression are the most barbarous of all human endeavors and are, more often than not, the instruments of insane tyrants who hear voices. - Author: Rodrigue Tremblay
Endeavors quotes by Rodrigue Tremblay
#62. If cissexual academics truly believe that transsexual and intersex people can add new perspectives to existing dialogues about gender, then they should stop reinterpreting our experiences and instead support transsexual and intersex intellectual endeavors and works of art. Instead of exploiting our experiences to further their own careers, they should insist that their universities make a point of hiring transsexual and intersex faculty, and that their publishers put out books by gender-variant writers. And they should finally acknowledge the fact that they have no legitimate claim to use transsexual and intersex identities, struggles, and histories for their own purposes. - Author: Julia Serano
Endeavors quotes by Julia Serano
#63. There was a place within my imagination so fathomlessly deep that the light of the real world could never touch it. Nothing but sex had ever been able to reach it. This place within me was prehuman, almost. Certainly, it was precivilization. It was a place beyond language. Friendship could not reach it. My creative endeavors could not reach it. Awe and joy could not reach it. This hidden part of me could only be reached through sexual intercourse. - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
Endeavors quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#64. We are the guardians of a great human function. Perhaps of the greatest function among the endeavors of man. We have achieved much and we have erred often. But we are willing in all humility to make way for our heirs. We are only men and we are only seekers. But we seek for truth with the best there is in our hearts. We seek with what there is of the sublime granted to the race of men. It is a great quest. - Author: Ayn Rand
Endeavors quotes by Ayn Rand
#65. This book is cheerfully dedicated to those greatest and most heroic of all human endeavors, WAR and WARFARE; may they never cease to give us the pleasure, excitement and adrenal stimulation that we need, or provide us with the heroes, the presidents and leaders, the monuments and museums which we erect to them in the name of PEACE. - Author: James Jones
Endeavors quotes by James Jones
#66. I don't think people would climb mountains or jump off bridges with parachutes or kayak Class V rapids if those things didn't offer the brief and horrible illusion of imminent death. They would just be complicated, time-consuming endeavors that we'd steer well clear of because they got in the way of real life. - Author: Sebastian Junger
Endeavors quotes by Sebastian Junger
#67. The U.S. is looking to India as more then just a marketplace for our defense products, but as a technology, aerospace and strategic partner for our future endeavors. - Author: Kit Bond
Endeavors quotes by Kit Bond
#68. Creative Endeavors are by their nature uncertain. - Author: Robert Greene
Endeavors quotes by Robert Greene
#69. Farm country
you know, hay, horses, cattle. It's the ideal situation for me. I like the physical endeavors that go with the farm
cutting hay, cleaning out stalls, or building a barn. You go do that and then come back to the writing. - Author: Sam Shepard
Endeavors quotes by Sam Shepard
#70. It required unusual inquisitiveness to pursue the development of scientific curiosities such as charged pith balls, the voltaic cell, and the electrostatic machine. Without such endeavors and the evolution of associated instrumentation, initially of purely scientific interest, most of the investigations that lead to the basic equations of electromagnetism would have been missed ... We would have been deprived of electromagnetic machinery as well as knowledge of electromagnetic waves. - Author: Frederick Seitz
Endeavors quotes by Frederick Seitz
#71. Over the years, I've found that I either live life or write about it. I can't seem to do both simultaneously - I have to do it sequentially. When I write incessantly, I lose touch with the issues and passions that fuel the work. But when I get too involved in organizations or movement endeavors, I almost forget that I'm a writer. It's a constant struggle to find a balance between these two worlds - the solitary writing life and the life of a social justice activist. - Author: Letty Cottin Pogrebin
Endeavors quotes by Letty Cottin Pogrebin
#72. I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves
this critical basis I call the ideal of a pigsty. The ideals that have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth. Without the sense of kinship with men of like mind, without the occupation with the objective world, the eternally unattainable in the field of art and scientific endeavors, life would have seemed empty to me. The trite objects of human efforts
possessions, outward success, luxury
have always seemed to me contemptible. - Author: Albert Einstein
Endeavors quotes by Albert Einstein
#73. Believing that the happiness of mankind is best promoted by the useful pursuits of peace, that on these alone a stable prosperity can be founded, that the evils of war are great in their endurance, and have a long reckoning for ages to come, I have used my best endeavors to keep our country uncommitted in the troubles which afflict Europe, and which assail us on every side. - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Endeavors quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#74. The first time with artistic endeavors is, if it's working, it was your idea, and if it's not, it's somebody else's idea. - Author: Tom T. Hall
Endeavors quotes by Tom T. Hall
#75. In interpreting a work of art, we draw upon our own aims and endeavors, inform it with a meaning that has its origin in our own ways of life and thought. In a word, any art that really affects us becomes to that extent modern art. - Author: Arnold Hauser
Endeavors quotes by Arnold Hauser
#76. Helping save other children of humanity ... should always weigh greater than all the world politics, religions and business endeavors. We either help save each other or watch our demise. It won't get better by itself! - Author: Timothy Pina
Endeavors quotes by Timothy Pina
#77. In childbirth, as in other human endeavors, fashions start with the rich, are then adopted by the aspirant middle class with an assist from the ever-watchful media, and may or may not eventually filter down to the poor. - Author: Jessica Mitford
Endeavors quotes by Jessica Mitford
#78. An idea is an amazing creation of the human mind, which comes either as
a result of one's continuous endeavors for solving a certain problem or just
as a spark that lights up the considered problem. - Author: Eraldo Banovac
Endeavors quotes by Eraldo Banovac
#79. Our practices - our most spiritual practices - are hanging laundry on the line, raising children, building strong relationships, practicing kindness as much as we can, striving for excellence in the workplace, and developing deeper self-knowledge. I wrote The Four Purposes of Life to assist in these endeavors. - Author: Dan Millman
Endeavors quotes by Dan Millman
#80. I did my acting performance in 'Roger Rabbit.' I think I did a voice-over also in 'Osmosis Jones' and I directed an episode of my show years ago, 'Tales from the Crypt' and that's my endeavors in the non-producer oriented ranks. - Author: Joel Silver
Endeavors quotes by Joel Silver
#81. Unlike any other sport, the objective in boxing is chillingly simple: One man purposefully endeavors to inflict bodily harm on another man. - Author: Howard Cosell
Endeavors quotes by Howard Cosell
#82. ...only the dreamers of a dream are capable of translating their dreams into worthy practical endeavors that are devoid of haunting errors. After all, they are the ones who carefully observed the link between their dreams and reality; they are the ones who worked consciously to blend them into one. - Author: Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Endeavors quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#83. That thing we call a place is the intersection of many changing forces passing through, whirling around, mixing, dissolving, and exploding in a fixed location. To write about a place is to acknowledge that phenomena often treated separately - ecology, democracy, culture, storytelling, urban design, individual life histories and collective endeavors - coexist. They coexist geographically, spatially, in place, and to understand a place is to engage with braided narratives and sue generous explorations. - Author: Rebecca Solnit
Endeavors quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#84. The democrat is a young conservative; the conservative is an old democrat. The aristocrat is the democrat ripe, and gone to seed,
because both parties stand on the one ground of the supreme value of property, which one endeavors to get, and the other to keep. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Endeavors quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#85. The more one endeavors to sound the depths of his ignorance the deeper the chasm appears. - Author: Amos Bronson Alcott
Endeavors quotes by Amos Bronson Alcott
#86. Lost, I am Lost! My fates have doomed my death.
The more I strive, I love; the more I love,
The less I hope. I see my ruin, certain.
What judgement or endeavors could apply
To my incurable and restless wounds
I throughly have examined, but in vain.
Oh, that it were not in religion sin
To make our love a god and worship it!
I have even wearied heaven with prayers, dried up
The spring of my continual tears, even starved
My veins with daily fasts; what wit or art
Could counsel, I have practiced. But, alas,
I find all these but dreams and old men's tales
To fright unsteady youth; I'm still the same.
Or I must speak or burst. Tis not, I know,
My lust, but tis my fate that leads me on.
Keep fear and low fainthearted shame with slaves!
I'll tell her that I love her, through my heart
Were rated at the price of that attempt. - Author: John Ford
Endeavors quotes by John Ford
#87. Algebra reverses the relative importance of the factors in ordinary language. It is essentially a written language, and it endeavors to exemplify in its written structures the patterns which it is its purpose to convey. The pattern of the marks on paper is a particular instance of the pattern to be conveyed to thought. The algebraic method is our best approach to the expression of necessity, by reason of its reduction of accident to the ghostlike character of the real variable. - Author: Alfred North Whitehead
Endeavors quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
#88. There were nights when I left the sessions physically and emotionally drained after hearing the anguish pour out like blood from a gaping wound. Don't let anyone ever tell you different – psychotherapy is one of the most taxing endeavors known to mankind; I've done all sorts of work, from picking carrots in the scorching sun to sitting on national committees in paneled board rooms, and there's nothing that compares to confronting human misery hour after hour and bearing the responsibility for easing that misery using only one's mind and mouth. At its best it's tremendously uplifting as you watch the patient open up, breathe, let go of the pain. At its worst is like surfing in a cesspool struggling for balance while being slapped with wave after putrid wave. - Author: Jonathan Kellerman
Endeavors quotes by Jonathan Kellerman
#89. Even the self-assured truth-finders and self-proclaimed freedom-fighters reject Truth. As admirable as such endeavors may be, they still only really want it so long as it to some extent confirms what they had already presumed to be true. - Author: Criss Jami
Endeavors quotes by Criss Jami
#90. My dad's supportive of all my endeavors. - Author: Georgia Jagger
Endeavors quotes by Georgia Jagger
#91. Government is the great fiction, through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else. - Author: Frederic Bastiat
Endeavors quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#92. True godliness does not turn men out of the world, but enables them to live better in it and excites their endeavors to mend it. - Author: William Penn
Endeavors quotes by William Penn
#93. I would have to say the novel 'War and Peace' influenced me more than any other book. This greatest of novels demonstrated to me the enormous power of literature and fired me up with a desire to become a writer, to participate in what I considered then to be the greatest of all endeavors. - Author: Douglas Preston
Endeavors quotes by Douglas Preston
#94. It is necessary to go through all the daily tasks and bring perfection to them, to learn to be perfect in your meditation, and to win in all your endeavors so that one day you will complete again. - Author: Frederick Lenz
Endeavors quotes by Frederick Lenz
#95. ...the vague thought passed through my mind that all of us, probably, would die like that: unexpectedly, in the middle of something we wanted to do, instead of at the end of our endeavors, as we always fondly believe. - Author: Kenneth Roberts
Endeavors quotes by Kenneth Roberts
#96. Consider that it is not failing in this or that attempt to come to Christ, but a giving-over of your endeavors, that will be your ruin. - Author: John Owen
Endeavors quotes by John Owen
#97. This year I will be more thoughful of my fellow man, expect more effort in each of my endeavors professionally as well as personally, take love wherever I find it, and offer it to everyone who will take it. In this coming year I will seek knowledge from those wiser than me and try to teach those who wish to learn from me. I love being alive and I will be the best man I possibly can - Duane Allman - Author: Duane Allman
Endeavors quotes by Duane Allman
#98. If your endeavors result in success of the company in a continuity of at
least a few years, you are a successful manager. If other companies follow
your business approach, you are certainly an important manager with
leader characteristics. - Author: Eraldo Banovac
Endeavors quotes by Eraldo Banovac
#99. In the pain, the agony, and the heroic endeavors of life, we pass through a refiner's fire, and the insignificant and the unimportant in our lives can melt away like dross and make our faith bright, intact, and strong. - Author: James E. Faust
Endeavors quotes by James E. Faust
#100. There are but few talents requisite to become a popular preacher; for the people are easily pleased if they perceive any endeavors in the orator to please them. The meanest qualifications will work this effect if the preacher sincerely sets about it. - Author: Oliver Goldsmith
Endeavors quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#101. The savage deals largely with crude stimuli; we have weighted stimuli. Prior human efforts have made over natural conditions. As they originally existed they were indifferent to human endeavors. Every domesticated plant and animal, every tool, every utensil, every appliance, every manufactured article, every esthetic decoration, every work of art means a transformation of conditions once hostile or indifferent to characteristic human activities into friendly and favoring conditions. Because the activities of children today are controlled by these selected and charged stimuli, children are able to traverse in a short lifetime what the race has needed slow, tortured ages to attain. The dice have been loaded by all the successes which have preceded. - Author: John Dewey
Endeavors quotes by John Dewey
#102. Freedom cannot be achieved unless women have been emancipated from all forms of oppression ... Our endeavors must be about the liberation of the woman, the emancipation of the man and the liberty of the child. - Author: Nelson Mandela
Endeavors quotes by Nelson Mandela
#103. Farming takes root in you and crowds out other endeavors, makes them seem paltry. Your acres become a world. And maybe you realize that it is beyond those acres or in your distant past, back in the realm of TiVo and cubicles, of take-out food and central heat and air, in that country where discomfort has nearly disappeared, that you were deprived. Deprived of the pleasure of desire, of effort and difficulty and meaningful accomplishment. - Author: Kristin Kimball
Endeavors quotes by Kristin Kimball
#104. These people look upon inequality as upon an evil. They do not assert that a definite
degree of inequality which can be exactly determined by a judgment free of any
arbitrariness and personal evaluation is good and has to be preserved unconditionally.
They, on the contrary, declare inequality in itself as bad and merely contend that a
lower degree of it is a lesser evil than a higher degree in the same sense in which a
smaller quantity of poison in a man's body is a lesser evil than a larger dose. But if
this is so, then there is logically in their doctrine no point at which the endeavors
toward equalization would have to stop. Whether one has already reached a degree of
inequality which is to be considered low enough and beyond which it is not necessary
to embark upon further measures toward equalization is just a matter of personal
judgments of value, quite arbitrary, different with different people and changing in the
passing of time. As these champions of equalization appraise confiscation and
"redistribution" as a policy harming only a minority, viz., those whom they consider
to be "too" rich, and benefiting the rest - the majority - of the people, they cannot
oppose any tenable argument to those who are asking for more of this allegedly
beneficial policy. As long as any degree of inequality is left, there will always be
people whom envy impels to press for a continuation of the equalization - Author: Ludwig Von Mises
Endeavors quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#105. A secret dependence upon our prayers, tears, resolutions, repentance and endeavors, prevents us from looking solely and simply to the Savior, so as to ground our whole hope for acceptance upon his obedience unto death, and his whole mediation. - Author: John Newton
Endeavors quotes by John Newton
#106. I realized, suddenly and quite shockingly, that her answered mattered to me - for a number of reasons...
I would be without a valuable companion and counterpart for my adventures, and I discovered, to my surprise, that that realization did not sit well with me at all. For all her weaknesses, Evaline Stoker was also a significant force to be reckoned with in her own way. We did complement each other, and I would miss having her by my side on any future endeavors. - Author: Colleen Gleason
Endeavors quotes by Colleen Gleason
#107. Of all the ships that have been devoted to biological explorations of the sea, none has surpassed the endeavors conducted on board the U. S. Bureau of Fisheries steamer Albatross, during her 39 years of service from 1882 to 1921. - Author: Paul Bartsch
Endeavors quotes by Paul Bartsch
#108. Many Christians live their lives as though Jesus finished His work in the first century. They seem to think that being a Christian is simply accepting the finished work of Christ, going to church every Sunday to express their worship, and waiting for His second coming. No, no, no. Jesus is working today, just as He did 2,000 years ago, to accomplish His cosmic mission... Some people can grasp the idea that Jesus goes to work every day, just like we do. Or conversely, and more correctly, we go to work every day, just like Jesus does. He told His disciples, "My father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working" (John 5:17). He still is.

The central task of the universe today is extending the kingdom of God into every corner of human life, one follower at a time, one conversation at a time. That's what Jesus is concentrating on, and that's what we should be spending the best part of our time and energy doing. You may have assumed that the most important thing you could be doing with your life is selling carpet... raising kids... governing... discovering a cure for cancer... or pastoring the second-largest church in a small town. Those are all worthwhile endeavors, but each one of those tasks is only significant when it is a subtask of the grand objective: building the kingdom of God. - Author: D. Michael Henderson
Endeavors quotes by D. Michael Henderson
#109. Without trying, I seem to write about these poor boys who are absolutely mad for girls who are otherwise engaged in perilous endeavors. - Author: Lauren DeStefano
Endeavors quotes by Lauren DeStefano
#110. You are not called to believe in your love to God, but in God's love to you! Do not argue, 'I cannot love God! I have striven to my uttermost to do so, but have failed in all my endeavors, until in despair I have abandoned the thought and relinquished the attempt.' Be it so- no effort of your own can strike a spark of love to God from your heart. Nor does God demand the task at your hands. All that He requires of you is faith in His love, as embodied and expressed in Jesus Christ to poor sinners. - Author: Octavius Winslow
Endeavors quotes by Octavius Winslow
#111. I am certain that a solution of the general problem of peace must rest on broad and basic understanding on the part of its peoples. Great single endeavors like a League of Nations, a United Nations, and undertakings of that character, are of great importance and in fact absolutely necessary, but they must be treated as steps toward the desired end. - Author: George C. Marshall
Endeavors quotes by George C. Marshall
#112. I think making a great action movie is one of the hardest cinematic endeavors. By definition, smart characters avoid action. Smart people don't go down dark alleys, but if you're making an action movie and you want to have an action sequence, somehow you have to get that character into that dangerous situation. - Author: Doug Liman
Endeavors quotes by Doug Liman
#113. Clearly, when western cultures absorbed Christianity, they got an all-inclusive package: ancient Hebrew rituals and myths steeped in lost purpose, scantily recorded and broadly misinterpreted teachings of Jesus, revisions and distortions by Paul, twisted cosmology and superstitions supplied by priesthoods and bureaucratic/political distortions innate to man's traditional
endeavors. - Author: Thomas Daniel Nehrer
Endeavors quotes by Thomas Daniel Nehrer
#114. Few endeavors, if any at all, I find to be inherently mature or inherently immature. Maturity is neither defined by one's particular preferences nor by one's particular activities; rather, it is defined by the strength of one's character. - Author: Criss Jami
Endeavors quotes by Criss Jami
#115. If civilization is to survive, the principles of the Prince of Peace must be restored. Shattered trust between nations must be revived. Most important of all the will for peace on the part of peace loving nations must express itself to the end that nations that may be tempted to violate their agreements and the rights of others will desist from such a course. There must be positive endeavors to preserve peace. America hates war, America hopes for peace. Therefore, America actively engages in the search for peace. - Author: Franklin D. Roosevelt
Endeavors quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#116. Ideas first and last: yet it is not till these are formulated and utilized that the devotees of the common sense discern their value and advantages. The idealist is the capitalist on whose resources multitudes are maintained life long. Ideas in the head set hands about their several tasks, thus carrying forward all human endeavors to their issues. - Author: Amos Bronson Alcott
Endeavors quotes by Amos Bronson Alcott
#117. They were still quite near the ship; she saw its green side towering high above them, and people looking at her from the deck. Then, as one might have expected, Eustace clutched at her in a panic and down they both went.
When they came up again she saw a white figure diving off the ship's side. Edmund was close beside her now, treading water, and had caught the arms of the howling Eustace. Then someone else, whose face was vaguely familiar, slipped an arm under her from the other side. There was a lot of shouting going on from the ship, heads crowding together above the bulwarks, ropes being thrown. Edmund and the stranger were fastening ropes round her. After that followed what seemed a very long delay during which her face got blue and her teeth began chattering. In reality the delay was not very long; they were waiting till the moment when she could be got on board the ship without being dashed against its side. Even with all their best endeavors she had a bruised knee when she finally stood, dripping and shivering, on the deck. After her Edmund was heaved up, and then the miserable Eustace. Last of all came the stranger--a golden-headed boy some years older than herself.
"Ca--Ca--Caspian!" gasped Lucy as soon as she had breath enough. For Caspian it was; Caspian, the boy king of Narnia whom they had helped to set on the throne during their last visit. Immediately Edmund recognized him too. All three shook hands and clapped one another on the back with great del - Author: C.S. Lewis
Endeavors quotes by C.S. Lewis
#118. Success also requires the courage to risk disapproval. Most independent thought, new ideas, or endeavors beyond the common measure are greeted with disapproval, and ranging from skepticism and ridicule to violent outrage. To persevere in anything exceptional requires inner strength and the unshakable conviction that you are right. - Author: Chin-Ning Chu
Endeavors quotes by Chin-Ning Chu
#119. The system-versus-goals model can be applied to most human endeavors. In the world of dieting, losing twenty pounds is a goal, but eating right is a system. In the exercise realm, running a marathon in under four hours is a goal, but exercising daily is a system. In business, making a million dollars is a goal, but being a serial entrepreneur is a system. - Author: Scott Adams
Endeavors quotes by Scott Adams
#120. g) Time it takes to reinvent yourself: five years. Here's a description of the five years: Year One: You're flailing and reading everything and just starting to do. Year Two: You know who you need to talk to and network with. You're doing every day. You finally know what the Monopoly board looks like in your new endeavors. Year Three: You're good enough to start making money. It might not be a living yet. Year Four: You're making a good living, and you can quit your day job. Year Five: You're making wealth. Sometimes you get frustrated in years one through four. You say, "Why isn't it happening yet?" That's okay. Just keep going. Or stop and pick a new field. - Author: James Altucher
Endeavors quotes by James Altucher
#121. In the past, changing the self and changing the world were often regarded as separate endeavors and viewed in either-or terms. But in the story of the Great Turning, they are recognized as mutually reinforcing and essential to one another. - Author: Joanna Macy & Chris Johnstone
Endeavors quotes by Joanna Macy & Chris Johnstone
#122. Tending 100-year-old vines, I've been fortunate to craft highly rated, small production, estate grown wines since 1998. A labor of love, our wines are sustainably farmed, carry the story of my family in every glass and are simply the most satisfying of all my personal endeavors. - Author: Michael Chiarello
Endeavors quotes by Michael Chiarello
#123. Being myself a warm zealot for the attainment & enjoiment by all mankind of as much liberty as each may exercise without injury to the equal liberty of his fellow citizens, I have lamented that in France the endeavors to obtain this should have been attended with the effusion of so much blood. - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Endeavors quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#124. Making films has got to be one of the hardest endeavors known to humankind. - Author: Spike Lee
Endeavors quotes by Spike Lee
#125. Tentative efforts lead to tentative outcomes. Therefore, give yourself fully to your endeavors. Decide to construct your character through excellent actions and determine to pay the price of a worthy goal. The trials you encounter will introduce you to your strengths. Remain steadfast ... and one day you will build something that endures: something worthy of your potential. - Author: Epictetus
Endeavors quotes by Epictetus
#126. That we ought not to be weary of doing little things for the love of GOD, who regards not the greatness of the work, but the love with which it is performed. That we should not wonder if, in the beginning, we often failed in our endeavors, but that at last we should gain a habit, which will naturally produce its acts in us, without our care, and to our exceeding great delight. - Author: Brother Lawrence
Endeavors quotes by Brother Lawrence
#127. I am convinced that attitude is the key to success or failure in almost any of life's endeavors. Your attitude - your perspective, your outlook, how you feel about yourself, how you feel about other people-determines your priorities, your actions, your values. Your attitude determines how you interact with other people and how you interact with yourself. - Author: Carolyn Warner
Endeavors quotes by Carolyn Warner
#128. After twelve years as an NFL head coach - six with the Indianapolis Colts - I know that God has provided me with a significant platform that cannot be measured in sheer numbers alone. We are all role models to someone. Speaking to five thousand people is no more important than quietly teaching one. And as long as our hearts are right, God will honor both endeavors, accomplishing what He will in each setting. - Author: Tony Dungy
Endeavors quotes by Tony Dungy
#129. We can deal with our cultural and environmental crises only after we deal with our human crises of trauma, denial, and emotional paralysis. This will require that most difficult of all human endeavors, facing our own despair. This involves waking from our trance of denial, facing our own pain and sorrow, accepting the world as it is, adapting, and living more intentionally. - Author: Mary Pipher
Endeavors quotes by Mary Pipher
#130. The medal from an old grappling tournament will not serve me today, but the courage I developed in its acquisition will. By investing in yourself, by using all endeavors as a vehicle to shape who we are, we exist in the present moment with a lifetime of growth behind us. I have loved many vehicles throughout the years, Jiu Jitsu more than any other, but the vehicle has, and always will, be a distant second to the driver. - Author: Chris Matakas

Endeavors quotes by Debasish Mridha
#133. I've always loved reading and always loved the movies. Storytelling is one of the oldest of human endeavors, and they give us our understanding of the world and our place in it. When I discovered that there were people who professionally were involved in the creation of stories, it was game over - I knew what I wanted to do it. - Author: Stephanie Allain
Endeavors quotes by Stephanie Allain
#134. He had been content with daily labour and rough animal enjoyments, 'till Catherine crossed his path. Shame at her scorn, and hope of her approval, were his first prompts to higher pursuits; and, instead of guarding him from one and winning him to the other, his endeavors to raise himself had produced just the contrary result. - Author: Emily Bronte

#137. Everybody want to experience some form of pleasure in whatever they are doing and one of the sure ways of doing that is by seeing increase in your endeavors or results - Author: Sunday Adelaja
Endeavors quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#138. Amongst democratic nations, as well as elsewhere, the number of official appointments has in the end some limits; but amongst those nations, the number of aspirants is unlimited; it perpetually increases, with a gradual and irresistible rise in proportion as social conditions become more equal, and is only checked by the limits of the population. Thus, when public employments afford the only outlet for ambition, the government necessarily meets with a permanent opposition at last; for it is tasked to satisfy with limited means unlimited desires. It is very certain that of all people in the world the most difficult to restrain and to manage are a people of solicitants. Whatever endeavors are made by rulers, such a people can never be contented; and it is always to be apprehended that they will ultimately overturn the constitution of the country, and change the aspect of the State, for the sole purpose of making a clearance of places. The sovereigns of the present age, who strive to fix upon themselves alone all those novel desires which are aroused by equality, and to satisfy them, will repent in the end, if I am not mistaken, that they ever embarked in this policy: they will one day discover that they have hazarded their own power, by making it so necessary; and that the more safe and honest course would have been to teach their subjects the art of providing for themselves. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Endeavors quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#139. Water and stones. Those are the unpromising ingredients of two very different endeavors ... painting, because artists' pigments are made from fluids ... mixed together with powdered stones to give color ... and the other is alchemy, the stone the ultimate goal. - Author: James Elkins
Endeavors quotes by James Elkins
#140. Discipline is the highest of all virtues. Only so may strength and desire be counterbalanced and the endeavors of man bear fruit. - Author: Nikos Kazantzakis
Endeavors quotes by Nikos Kazantzakis
#141. To us, to the everyday teachers of everyday students, neither of whom is writing the book of the universe but who both have their fullest life only when they align themselves with its truths, working out our own commitment to and our own vision of agape, in however homely or personal a form, is a life long task that both guides us in our teaching endeavors and honors those endeavors at the same time. - Author: Marshall Gregory
Endeavors quotes by Marshall Gregory
#142. Golf is a game in which one endeavors to control a ball with implements ill adapted for the purpose. - Author: Woodrow Wilson
Endeavors quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#143. To believe in one's self is to take a worthwhile risk. - Author: Ogwo David Emenike
Endeavors quotes by Ogwo David Emenike
#144. All nonfiction writers, whether they like it or not, are translators. The translator is the perfect journalist. The best journalism endeavors to convey an essential idea or story to an audience that knows very little about it, and that requires translation. To do this successfully, the writer must filter the idea through the prism of his eye, and his mind, and his writing style. - Author: Ilan Stavans
Endeavors quotes by Ilan Stavans
#145. The object of man's worship, whatever it be, will naturally be his standard of perfection. He clothes it with every attribute, belonging, in his view, to a perfect character; and this character he himself endeavors to attain. - Author: Simon Greenleaf
Endeavors quotes by Simon Greenleaf
#146. Dostoevsky believed that the gods of rationalism and materialist utilitarianism had joined in conspiracy against all other ethical systems ... The accumulation of capital, or the acquisition of money, are endeavors par excellence which establish a quantifiable goal: hence they are directly amenable to maximization formulae. - Author: John Carroll
Endeavors quotes by John Carroll
#147. Parents and children seldom act in concert:
each child endeavors to appropriate
the esteem or fondness of the parents,
and the parents, with yet less temptation,
betray each other to their children. - Author: Samuel Johnson
Endeavors quotes by Samuel Johnson
#148. Embrace your journey and those who come across your path. Be gracious in your endeavors. Focus on your craft. Those who support your dreams now and feel your sincere humility and gratitude will be there 20, 30, 40 years from now, padding your old bones and time worn, weary soul. - Author: Ann Marie Frohoff
Endeavors quotes by Ann Marie Frohoff
#149. You can wear your hair long or wear a beard because you want to show that you are interested in thought, in psychological endeavors rather than appearance. - Author: Emilio Pucci
Endeavors quotes by Emilio Pucci
#150. The sooner you learn to finish things, and as a matter of course finish your creative endeavors, the better. It took me a long time to learn that. - Author: Laini Taylor
Endeavors quotes by Laini Taylor
#151. He that fails in his endeavors after wealth or power will not long retain either honesty or courage. - Author: Samuel Johnson
Endeavors quotes by Samuel Johnson
#152. No testimony is sufficient to establish a miracle, unless the testimony be of such a kind, that its falsehood would be more miraculous, than the fact, which it endeavors to establish. - Author: David Hume
Endeavors quotes by David Hume
#153. Except under dire circumstances or as a day job to support creative endeavors, a smart person is not so likely to want to wait tables, file forms, work on an assembly line, or sell shoes. It isn't that he disparages these lines of work as beneath his dignity; rather, it is that he can see clearly how his days would be experienced as meaningless if he had to spend his time not thinking. - Author: Eric Maisel
Endeavors quotes by Eric Maisel
#154. Emotional exhaustion follows fast on the footsteps of physical and mental depletion. I feel my lifeblood draining away in an oily spigot of inner turmoil. Questions abound and personal survival hinges upon sorting through possible solutions and selecting the most fitting answers. Is my pain real or simply an illusion of a frustrated ego? What do I believe in? What is my purpose? I aspire to discover a means to live in congruence with the trinity of the mind, body, and spirit. Can I discover a noble path that frees me from the shallowness of decadent physical and emotional desires? Can I surrender any desire to seek fame and fortune? Can I terminate a craving to punish other persons for their perceived wrongs? Can I recognize that forgiving persons whom offended me is a self-initiated, transformative act? Can I conquer an irrational fear of the future? Can I accept the inevitable chaos that accompanies life? Can I find a means to achieve inner harmony by steadfastly resolving to live in the moment free of angst? Can I purge egotisms that mar an equitable perception of life by renunciation of the self and all worldly endeavors? Can I live a harmonious existence devoid the panache of vanities? - Author: Kilroy J. Oldster
Endeavors quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster

Endeavors quotes by Bryce Dallas Howard
#157. The most successful endeavors in the digital age were those run by leaders who fostered collaboration while also providing a clear vision. Too often these are seen as conflicting traits: a leader is either very inclusive or a passionate visionary. But the best leaders could be both. Robert - Author: Walter Isaacson
Endeavors quotes by Walter Isaacson
#158. Unlike conventional jocks, who tend to sell aluminum siding and give canned speeches to parochial-school athletic banquets in the off-season, race drivers never shuck their image when they leave the stadium. They are supposed to be zany, nomadic soldiers of fortune who are involved in wild endeavors during every waking moment. - Author: Brock Yates
Endeavors quotes by Brock Yates
#159. That's because true travel, the kind with no predetermined end, is one of the most selfish endeavors we can possibly undertake-an act in which we focus solely on our own fulfillment, with little regard to those we leave behind. After all, we're the ones venturing out into the big crazy world, filling up journals, growing like weeds. And we have the gall to think they're just sitting at home, soaking in security and stability.
It is only when we reopen these wrapped and ribboned boxes, upon our triumphant return home, that we discover nothing is the way we had left it before. - Author: Stephanie Elizondo Griest
Endeavors quotes by Stephanie Elizondo Griest
#160. The meaning of all addictions could be defined as endeavors at controlling our life experiences with the help of external remedies. . . . Unfortunately, all external means of improving our life experiences are double-edged swords: they are always good and bad. No external remedy improves our condition without, at the same time, making it worse. - Author: Thomas Hora
Endeavors quotes by Thomas Hora
#161. The person with neurotic anxiety endeavors to run away from some elements within herself or himself. This can be accomplished only by dissociating these elements, which sets up inner contradictions. - Author: Rollo May
Endeavors quotes by Rollo May
#162. I had the intention of becoming a theologian ... but now I see how God is, by my endeavors, also glorified in astronomy, for 'the heavens declare the glory of God.' - Author: Johannes Kepler
Endeavors quotes by Johannes Kepler
#163. That was why he could not stop coming to her. She was for him what his wife was not; a nymph who craved his sexuality and seduced him with words, dress and behavior. He wondered why good women would draw in a husband and then when they married them, they would stop all erotic endeavors. It was as if the very thing that drew the man was turned off as soon as they were trapped in the marriage. It seemed that family killed the sexual drive of women. They became mothers with an inability to any longer be lovers. Men were fish caught and thrown into the boat, gills desperately sucking for the life-giving source of their simple and primal need. That was why Abishai felt it was so easy for him to go astray, because his vice seemed more primal than his virtue. - Author: Brian Godawa
Endeavors quotes by Brian Godawa
#164. If you study the root causes of business disasters, over and over you'll find this predisposition toward endeavors that offer immediate gratification. - Author: Clayton Christensen
Endeavors quotes by Clayton Christensen
#165. Once he accepts the distraction as his present problem and lays that before the Enemy and makes it the main theme of his prayers and his endeavors, then, so far from doing good, you have done harm. Anything, even a sin, which has the total effect of moving him close up to the Enemy, makes against us in the long run. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Endeavors quotes by C.S. Lewis
#166. Not basing your principles of sex based on the judgment of other or on hearsay, uphold yourself to virtues that you believe in. Before any laws created by man, religion, and culture; the universe has always held us under the principles of love in all endeavors in life, and this applies to sex as well. Sex is a very personal experience and the morals you follow under this act are a personal notion that you create yourself for the sake of your personal happiness. - Author: Forrest Curran
Endeavors quotes by Forrest Curran
#167. Athens, while remaining nominally independent, no longer commanded its lifelines or its fate. Just as it had invented many Western institutions and intellectual and artistic endeavors, so did it pioneer a less glorious tradition. In the centuries following the Peloponnesian war, Athens became the first in a long line of senescent Western empires to suffer the ignominious transformation from world power to open-air theme park, famous only for its arts, its architecture, its schools, and its past. - Author: William J. Bernstein
Endeavors quotes by William J. Bernstein
#168. My great definition of success comes from Thoreau: "If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." That always has defined my road to what you call phenomenal success. I have advanced confidently in the direction of my dreams. I have lived the life I imagined. And I have had a ball doing it. - Author: Wayne Dyer
Endeavors quotes by Wayne Dyer
#169. He who wishes to revenge injuries by reciprocal hatred will live in misery. But he who endeavors to drive away hatred by means of love, fights with pleasure and confidence; he resists equally one or many men, and scarcely needs at all the help of fortune. Those whom he conquers yield joyfully - Author: Baruch Spinoza
Endeavors quotes by Baruch Spinoza
#170. Caring about the welfare of children and shaming parents are mutually exclusive endeavors. - Author: Brene Brown
Endeavors quotes by Brene Brown
#171. The most fortunate of us, in our journey through life, frequently meet with calamities and misfortunes which may greatly afflict us; and, to fortify our minds against the attacks of these calamities and misfortunes should be one of the principal studies and endeavors of our lives. The only method of doing this is to assume a perfect resignation to the Divine will, to consider that whatever does happen, must happen; and that, by our uneasiness, we cannot prevent the blow before it does fall, but we may add to its force after it has fallen. These considerations, and others such as these, may enable us in some measure to surmount the difficulties thrown in our way; to bear up with a tolerable degree of patience under the burden of life; and to proceed with a pious and unshaken resignation, till we arrive at our journey's end. - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Endeavors quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#172. All forms of art are parallel expressions. Writing is not unlike painting or other artistic endeavors. Each artistic endeavor is an expression of the mystery of the world. The job of the artist is to deepen that mystery, express reverence for the mystery of life, and explore the enigmatic aspects of human nature. - Author: Kilroy J. Oldster
Endeavors quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#173. But the fact that the middle classes are working themselves to the bone, using their sweat and taxes to finance such pointless and pretentious research leaves me speechless. Every gray morning, day after gloomy day, secretaries, craftsmen, employees, petty civil servants, taxi drivers and concierges shoulder their burdens so that the flower of French youth, duly housed and subsidized, can squander the fruit of all that dreariness upon the altar of ridiculous endeavors. - Author: Muriel Barbery
Endeavors quotes by Muriel Barbery
#174. I always enjoyed participating in artistic endeavors, and I remember in high school participating in chorus, drama and singing madrigals, mainly because they were an easy A. I loved being in plays and musicals too, but you didn't really get credit for those. - Author: Roger Bart
Endeavors quotes by Roger Bart
#175. Too often in Washington we tend to see foreign policy as an abstraction, with little understanding of what we are committing our country to: the complications and consequences of endeavors. - Author: Chuck Hagel
Endeavors quotes by Chuck Hagel
#176. If the road behind me is not growing ever longer, then it is likely that the feet underneath me are not moving any longer. And if my feet are not moving, I have somehow, somewhere traded this most glorious journey for lesser endeavors. - Author: Craig D. Lounsbrough
Endeavors quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#177. But all the things that God would have us do are hard for us to do
remember that
and hence, he oftener commands us than endeavors to persuade. And if we obey God, we must disobey ourselves; and it is in this disobeying ourselves, wherein the hardness of obeying God consists. - Author: Herman Melville
Endeavors quotes by Herman Melville
#178. When too many conflicting ideas about your existence start crossing your mind, try to look at the positives of your past endeavors and how successfully you managed to handle a demanding situation. - Author: Prem Jagyasi
Endeavors quotes by Prem Jagyasi

Endeavors quotes by George Schaller
#180. I basically was in charge of the Jackson 5 - all their creative, when it came down to the studio, and all their musical endeavors. - Author: Deke Richards
Endeavors quotes by Deke Richards
#181. Silence is like a cradle holding our endeavors and our will; a silent spaciousness sustains us in our work and at the same time connects us to larger worlds that, in the busyness of our daily struggle to achieve, we have not yet investigated. Silence is the soul's break for freedom. - Author: David Whyte
Endeavors quotes by David Whyte
#182. I think that when you decide to dedicate yourself to creative endeavors and surround yourself with people who are creative, you very quickly learn how hard it is to survive doing those kinds of things, not to mention make a living at them. - Author: Oscar Isaac
Endeavors quotes by Oscar Isaac
#183. Truth loves nothing better than simplicity of truth: that is the lesson Columbe Josse ought to have learned from her medieval readings. But all she seems to have gleaned from her studies is how to make a conceptual fuss in the service of nothing. It is a sort of endless loop, and also a shameless waste of resources, including the courier and my own self.

. . . Granted, the young woman has a fairly efficient way with words, despite her youth. But the fact that the middle classes are working themselves to the bone, using their sweat and taxes to finance such pointless and pretentious research leaves me speechless. Every gray morning, day after gloomy day, secretaries, craftsmen, employees, petty civil servants, taxi drivers and concierges shoulder their burdens so that the flower of French youth, duly housed and subsidized, can squander the fruit of all that dreariness upon the altar of ridiculous endeavors . . .

Should you devote your time to teaching, to producing a body of work, to research, to culture? It makes no difference. The only thing that matters is your intention: are you elevating thought and contributing to the common good, or rather joining the ranks in the field of study whose only purpose is its own perpetuation, and only function the self-reproduction of the elite - for this turns the University into a sect. - Author: Muriel Barbery
Endeavors quotes by Muriel Barbery
#184. Why did these men fight? The answer is simple. We were ordinary people molded into Marines. The same can be said of those who served in the army. We all had the proper upbringings of common folk, when you have a task to do, you work hard, give it your best and get the job done. We came from different backgrounds; however, we became a team, moving and fighting as if we had known each other all of our lives. All of us have bonded for life and still keep in touch by phone, letters, and visits. If anyone of the second squad needs help you can be sure the rest of the squad would be there. All of those I have kept in touch with have been successful in the life endeavors they chose.
"Not one of them is bitter about giving up two years of their life to 'Serve Their Country'"

Endeavors quotes by James Brady
#185. He who knows himself to be profound endeavors to be clear; he who would like to appear profound to the crowd endeavors to be obscure. - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
Endeavors quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#186. Don't make your life's mission to become someone people know and loathe; there are experts already in such endeavors and the world doesn't need any more. - Author: Robert J. Braathe
Endeavors quotes by Robert J. Braathe
#187. He thinks of all he has seen and learned: that the universe is indifferent to our human endeavors, that what gives our lives meaning is the passion that invades our hearts and burns in us, and maybe even destroys us. - Author: Kiana Davenport
Endeavors quotes by Kiana Davenport
#188. Are you lonely?" Jonathan asks.
How could I tell him that my loneliness was crushing? How it felt awful to be lonely but not know how to reach out to people and fill the time I always had too much of? It wasn't that I didn't enjoy being alone, because I did, and could spend hours on solitary endeavors like reading or going for long walks without ever wishing for human companionship. I could visit the animals at the shelter or write another play for the children to perform. But sometimes I craved the presence of someone else, especially if I could be myself. - Author: Tracey Garvis Graves
Endeavors quotes by Tracey Garvis Graves
#189. The one impulse in man which cannot be erased is his impulse toward freedom, his impulse toward sanity, toward higher levels of attainment in all of his endeavors. - Author: L. Ron Hubbard
Endeavors quotes by L. Ron Hubbard
#190. In looking at our our individual classroom pedagogies and our isolated artistic endeavors, we must broaden the frame of analysis to consider historical, contextual and institutional assumptions. This means a constant awareness of how the micro-practices of interpersonal dialogue and embodied ways of knowing each other can provide an impetus fro structural change. - Author: Ann Elizabeth Armstrong
Endeavors quotes by Ann Elizabeth Armstrong
#191. I was never good at sports. For a while I played Little League baseball, but I had very little interaction with the actual ball. I heard a lot of yelling about the ball, and I occasionally sensed that something--which I assumed was the ball--had just whizzed past me. But I almost never had any direct personal contact with the ball, which turns out to be crucial to succeeding in many athletic endeavors. - Author: Dave Barry
Endeavors quotes by Dave Barry
#192. everything you do needs to work on a three-year time horizon, then you are competing against a lot of people. But if you are willing to invest on a seven-year time horizon, you are now competing against a fraction of those people, because very few companies are willing to do that. Just by lengthening the time horizon, you can engage in endeavors that you could never otherwise pursue. At Amazon we like things to work in five - Author: Gerardo Giannoni
Endeavors quotes by Gerardo Giannoni
#193. Baseball, of all sports, and maybe of all human endeavors, has no room for cynicism. - Author: Howard Frank Mosher
Endeavors quotes by Howard Frank Mosher
#194. All of my free time is made up of motor sports endeavors, be them motorcycles or off-road racing or track days. I just love anything with an engine. That is one of my main loves. Obviously, my other well-known love is Kristen Bell. - Author: Dax Shepard
Endeavors quotes by Dax Shepard
#195. If ordinary people really knew that consciousness and not matter is the link that connects us with each other and the world, then their views about war and peace, environmental pollution, social justice, religous values, and all other human endeavors would change radically. - Author: Amit Goswami
Endeavors quotes by Amit Goswami
#196. The more you participate in our common endeavors, the more successful your work in the factory, mine, wharf or village, in an economic institute or in the arts, in commerce or administration, the sooner we will be where we all want to be. - Author: Walter Ulbricht
Endeavors quotes by Walter Ulbricht
#197. He that sees another in error and endeavors not to correct it, testifies himself to be in error. - Author: Pope Leo I
Endeavors quotes by Pope Leo I
#198. The passage that he had found in the book had been riddled with ambiguities and contradictions only reserved for those most valiant in overriding their legalistic forbearance into a necessary frenzy that would allow them to suitably work up a case for one side or the other on how the Law, without the possibility of misinterpretation, states If ABC, then DEF - or for the sake of acknowledging the counterargument first as a courtroom tactic, the case might also be made that the Law states the antithesis of the aforementioned If ABC, then DEF, but gives allowance within reasonable parameters for a provisional XYZ to be granted in exceptional cases. And thus, it was a matter not so much of making one's case in a clear and logical sense, but one for the lawyers to battle out in the arena of pathos, as it was clearly the emotional pleas that could evoke a sense of sympathy in the courtroom and overturn otherwise painstaking endeavors at using the tools at hand to make pleas based upon incontrovertible facts. - Author: Ashim Shanker
Endeavors quotes by Ashim Shanker
#199. In our endeavors to recall to memory something long forgotten, we often find ourselves upon the very verge of remembrance, without being able, in the end, to remember. - Author: Edgar Allan Poe
Endeavors quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#200. There are books written by women. There are books written by men. Somehow, though, it is only books by women, or books about certain topics, that require this special "women's fiction" designation, particularly when those books have the audacity to explore, in some manner, the female experience, which, apparently, includes the topics of marriage, suburban existence, and parenthood, as if women act alone in these endeavors, wedding themselves, immaculately conceiving children, and the like. - Author: Roxane Gay
