Too much overcharges Nature, and turns more into disease than nourishment. 'Tis thought and digestion which makes books serviceable, and give health and vigor to the mind.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/18051/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/18051/ <![CDATA[It is necessary to the happiness of man that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving; it consists in professing to believe what he does not believe.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/21259/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/21259/ <![CDATA[Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thought that is forever flowing through one's head.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/23912/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/23912/ <![CDATA[What, then, is the true Gospel of consistency? Change. Who is the really consistent man? The man who changes. Since change is the law of his being, he cannot be consistent if he stick in a rut.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/8194/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/8194/ <![CDATA[Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/794/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/794/ <![CDATA[After all, most writing is done away from the typewriter, away from the desk. I'd say it occurs in the quiet, silent moments, while you're walking or shaving or playing a game, or whatever, or even talking to someone you're not vitally interested in.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42765/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42765/ <![CDATA[The true charm of pedestrianism does not lie in the walking, or in the scenery, but in the talking. The walking is good to time the movement of the tongue by, and to keep the blood and the brain stirred up and active; the scenery and the woodsy smells are good to bear in upon a man an unconscious and unobtrusive charm and solace to eye and soul and sense; but the supreme pleasure comes from the talk.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/40986/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/40986/ <![CDATA[Without poets, without artists, men would soon weary of nature's monotony. The sublime idea men have of the universe would collapse with dizzying speed. The order which we find in nature, and which is only an effect of art, would at once vanish. Everything would break up in chaos. There would be no seasons, no civilization, no thought, no humanity; even life would give way, and the impotent void would reign everywhere.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3048/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3048/ <![CDATA[Art is an experience, not the formulation of a problem.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3046/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3046/ <![CDATA[I believe entertainment can aspire to be art, and can become art, but if you set out to make art you're an idiot.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/12539/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/12539/ <![CDATA[Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/18242/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/18242/ <![CDATA[Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/5243/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/5243/ <![CDATA[Fine art, that exists for itself alone, is art in a final state of impotence. If nobody, including the artist, acknowledges art as a means of knowing the world, then art is relegated to a kind of rumpus room of the mind and the irresponsibility of the artist and the irrelevance of art to actual living becomes part and parcel of the practice of art.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3084/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3084/ <![CDATA[Art never improves, but the material of art is never quite the same.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3118/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3118/ <![CDATA[Religion and art spring from the same root and are close kin.

Looking at the balanced whole--the work needs, the family needs, the other needs that may be involved, and the possible implications of the various alternatives -- you'll try to come up with the best solution taking all factors into consideration. We are limited but we can push back the borders of our limitations.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/23997/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/23997/ <![CDATA[Live out of your imagination, not your history.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/20409/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/20409/ <![CDATA[We are not human beings on a spiritual journey.

People who do not will find that it withers until they are literally being lived. They are acting out scripts written by parents, associates and society.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/15692/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/15692/ <![CDATA[Lose/Win people bury a lot of feelings. And unexpressed feelings come forth later in uglier ways. Psychosomatic illnesses often are the reincarnation of cumulative resentment, deep disappointment and disillusionment repressed by the Lose/Win mentality. Disproportionate rage or anger, overreaction to minor provocation, and cynicism are other embodiments of suppressed emotion. People who are constantly repressing, not transcending feelings toward a higher meaning find that it affects the quality of their relationships with others.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/14891/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/14891/ <![CDATA[The character ethic, which I believe to be the foundation of success, teaches that there are basic principles of effective living, and that people can only experience true success and enduring happiness as they learn and integrate these principles into their basic character.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/12766/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/12766/ <![CDATA[In addition to self-awareness, imagination and conscience, it is the fourth human endowment-independent will-that really makes effective self-management possible. It is the ability to make decisions and choices and to act in accordance with them. It is the ability to act rather than to be acted upon, to proactively carry out the program we have developed through the other three endowments. Empowerment comes from learning how to use this great endowment in the decisions we make every day.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/10266/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/10266/ <![CDATA[Rough diamonds may sometimes be mistaken for worthless pebbles.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/31399/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/31399/ <![CDATA[What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/17202/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/17202/ <![CDATA[The Inside-Out approach to personal and interpersonal effectiveness means to start first with self; even more fundamentally, to start with the most inside part of self -- with your paradigms, your character, and your motives. The inside-out approach says that private victories precede public victories, that making and keeping promises to ourselves recedes making and keeping promises to others. It says it is futile to put personality ahead of character, to try to improve relationships with others before improving ourselves.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/33822/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/33822/ <![CDATA[The most important ingredient we put into any relationship is not what we say or what we do, but what we are. And if our words and our actions come from superficial human relations techniques (the Personality Ethic) rather than from our own inner core (the Character Ethic), others will sense that duplicity. We simply won't be able to create and sustain the foundation necessary for effective interdependence.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/33823/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/33823/ <![CDATA[People can't live with change if there's not a changeless core inside them. The key to the ability to change is a changeless sense of who you are, what you are about and what you value.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/5654/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/5654/ <![CDATA[Ineffective people live day after day with unused potential. They experience synergy only in small, peripheral ways in their lives. But creative experiences can be produced regularly, consistently, almost daily in people's lives. It requires enormous personal security and openness and a spirit of adventure.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/31406/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/31406/ <![CDATA[If you're proactive, you don't have to wait for circumstances or other people to create perspective expanding experiences. You can consciously create your own.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/6798/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/6798/ <![CDATA[Wisdom is your perspective on life, your sense of balance, your understanding of how the various parts and principles apply and relate to each other. It embraces judgment, discernment, comprehension. It is a gestalt or oneness, and integrated wholeness.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/41566/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/41566/ <![CDATA[It's easy to say no! when there's a deeper yes! burning inside.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/40775/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/40775/ <![CDATA[Private victories precede public victories.

And our attitudes and behaviors grow out of these assumptions.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/39117/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/39117/ <![CDATA[To focus on technique is like cramming your way through school. You sometimes get by, perhaps even get good grades, but if you don't pay the price day in and day out, you'll never achieve true mastery of the subjects you study or develop an educated mind.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/38494/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/38494/ <![CDATA[It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/5922/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/5922/ <![CDATA[Security represents your sense of worth, your identity, your emotional anchorage, your self-esteem, your basic personal strength or lack of it.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/35372/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/35372/ <![CDATA[The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/21918/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/21918/ <![CDATA[If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could then better judge what to do, and how to do it.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/21838/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/21838/ <![CDATA[Force is all-conquering, but its victories are short-lived.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/29666/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/29666/ <![CDATA[With the fearful strain that is on me night and day, if I did not laugh I should die.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/22518/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/22518/ <![CDATA[Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

No man resolved to make the most of himself can spare time for personal contention. Still less can he afford to take all the consequences, including the vitiating of his temper and loss of self control. Yield larger things to which you can show no more than equal right; and yield lesser ones, though clearly your own. Better give your path to a dog than be bitten by him in contesting for the right.
