ability

Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Some people are under the impression that all that is required to make a good fisherman is the ability to tell lies easily and without blushing; but this is a mistake. Mere bald fabrication is useless; the veriest tyro can manage that. It is in the circumstantial detail, the embellishing touches of probability, the general air of scrupulous -- almost of pedantic -- veracity, that the experienced angler is seen.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The ability to convert ideas to things is the secret of outward success.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist but the ability to start over.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All lovers swear more performance than they are able, and yet reserve an ability that they never perform; vowing more than the perfection of ten, and discharging less than the tenth part of one.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Twentieth-century art may start with nothing, but it flourishes by virtue of its belief in itself, in the possibility of control over what seems essentially uncontrollable, in the coherence of the inchoate, and in its ability to create its own values.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The philosopher is like a man fasting in the midst of universal intoxication. He alone perceives the illusion of which all creatures are the willing playthings; he is less duped than his neighbor by his own nature. He judges more sanely, he sees things as they are. It is in this that his liberty consists -- in the ability to see clearly and soberly, in the power of mental record.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You are wholly complete and your success in life will be in direct proportion to your ability to accept this truth about you.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Honesty is the cornerstone of all success, without which confidence and ability to perform shall cease to exist.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Americans, unhappily, have the most remarkable ability to alchemize all bitter truths into an innocuous but piquant confection and to transform their moral contradictions, or public discussion of such contradictions, into a proud decoration, such as are given for heroism on the battle field.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Man has lost the basic skill of the ape, the ability to scratch its back. Which gave it extraordinary independence, and the liberty to associate for reasons other than the need for mutual back-scratching.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are evils that have the ability to survive identification and go on for ever... money, for instance, or war.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Valor, glory, firmness, skill, generosity, steadiness in battle and ability to rule -- these constitute the duty of a soldier. They flow from his own nature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In fast-moving, progress-conscious America, the consumer expects to be dizzied by progress. If he could completely understand advertising jargon he would be badly disappointed. The half-intelligibility which we expect, or even hope, to find in the latest product language personally reassures each of us that progress is being made: that the pace exceeds our ability to follow.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every human being has hundreds of separate people living under his skin. The talent of a writer is his ability to give them their separate names, identities, personalities and have them relate to other characters living with him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Your ability to communicate is an important tool in your pursuit of your goals, whether it is with your family, your co-workers or your clients and customers.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Experience shows that success is due less to ability than to zeal. The winner is he who gives himself to his work body and soul.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The extent of your consciousness is limited only by your ability to love and to embrace with your love the space around you, and all it containsMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Genius is the ability to reduce the complicated to the simple.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our duty, as men and women, is to proceed as if limits to our ability did not exist. We are collaborators in creation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Love alone can unite living beings so as to complete and fulfill them... for it alone joins them by what is deepest in themselves. All we need is to imagine our ability to love developing until it embraces the totality of men and the earth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Of all the inventions that have helped to unify China perhaps the airplane is the most outstanding. Its ability to annihilate distance has been in direct proportion to its achievements in assisting to annihilate suspicion and misunderstanding among provincial officials far removed from one another or from the officials at the seat of government.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My most brilliant achievement was my ability to be able to persuade my wife to marry me.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I add this, that rational ability without education has oftener raised man to glory and virtue, than education without natural ability.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Change does not necessarily assure progress, but progress implacably requires change. Education is essential to change, for education creates both new wants and the ability to satisfy them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Some great men owe most of their greatness to the ability of detecting in those they destine for their tools the exact quality of strength that matters for their work.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of face within a comparatively short time, but the ability to form judgments requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience and maturity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Destiny is an absolutely definite and inexorable ruler. Physical ability and moral determination count for nothing. It is impossible to perform the simplest act when the gods say no. I have no idea how they bring pressure to bear on such occasions; I only know that it is irresistible.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Comparatively few people know what a million dollars actually is. To the majority it is a gaseous concept, swelling or decreasing as the occasion suggests. In the minds of politicians, perhaps more than anywhere, the notion of a million dollars has this accordion-like ability to expand or contract; if they are disposing of it, the million is a pleasing sum, reflecting warmly upon themselves; if somebody else wants it, it becomes a figure of inordinate size, not to be compassed by the rational mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Creativity is essentially a lonely art. An even lonelier struggle. To some a blessing. To others a curse. It is in reality the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul an idea.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The ability to get to the verge without getting into the war is the necessary art. If you try to run away from it, if you are scared to go to the brink, you are lost.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves, without any insistence that they satisfy you.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The first requisite for success is the ability to apply your physical and mental energies to one problem incessantly without growing weary.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Waste is worse than loss. The time is coming when every person who lays claim to ability will keep the question of waste before him constantly. The scope of thrift is limitless.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Humans have the ability to shift perspective. We can experience the world through our senses. Or we can remove ourselves from our senses and experience the world even less directly. We can think about our life, rather than thinking in our life. We can think about what we think about our life, and we can think about what we think about that. We can shift perceptual positions many times over.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Big jobs usually go to the men who prove their ability to outgrow small ones.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The ability to learn faster than your competitors may be only sustainable competitive advantage.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Success with money, family, relationships, health, and careers is the ability to reach your personal objectives in the shortest time, with the least effort and with the fewest mistakes. The goals you set for yourself and the strategies you choose become your blueprint or plan. Strategies are like recipes: choose the right ingredients, mix them in the correct proportions, and you will always produce the same predictable results: in this case financial success. The success strategies for managing money and building wealth are called Money Strategies. By learning to use money strategies as a part of your day-to-day life, financial frustration and failure will become a thing of the past.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Faith in the ability of a leader is of slight service unless it be united with faith in his justice.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The struggle of the male to learn to listen to and respect his own intuitive, inner prompting is the greatest challenge of all. His conditioning has been so powerful that it has all but destroyed his ability to be self-aware.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is something that is much more scarce, something rarer than ability. It is the ability to recognize ability.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The easiest thing to do, whenever you fail, is to put yourself down by blaming your lack of ability for your misfortunes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Your ability to use the principle of autosuggestion will depend, very largely, upon your capacity to concentrate upon a given desire until that desire becomes a burning obsession.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The link between ideas and action is rarely direct. There is almost always an intermediate step in which the idea is overcome. De Tocqueville points out that it is at times when passions start to govern human affairs that ideas are most obviously translated into political action. The translation of ideas into action is usually in the hands of people least likely to follow rational motives. Hence, it is that action is often the nemesis of ideas, and sometimes of the men who formulate them. One of the marks of the truly vigorous society is the ability to dispense with passion as a midwife of action the ability to pass directly from thought to action.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
