Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The California crunch really is the result of not enough power-generating plants and then not enough power to power the power of generating plants. (Jan. 2001)More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Social advance depends as much upon the process through which it is secured as upon the result itself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A man is not rightly conditioned until he is a happy, healthy, and prosperous being; and happiness, health, and prosperity are the result of a harmonious adjustment of the inner with the outer of the man with his surroundings.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All that you accomplish or fail to accomplish with your life is the direct result of your thoughts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Rhymes, meters, stanza forms, etc., are like servants. If the master is fair enough to win their affection and firm enough to command their respect, the result is an orderly happy household. If he is too tyrannical, they give notice; if he lacks authority, they become slovenly, impertinent, drunk and dishonest.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Drama is based on the Mistake. I think someone is my friend when he really is my enemy, that I am free to marry a woman when in fact she is my mother, that this person is a chambermaid when it is a young nobleman in disguise, that this well-dressed young man is rich when he is really a penniless adventurer, or that if I do this such and such a result will follow when in fact it results in something very different. All good drama has two movements, first the making of the mistake, then the discovery that it was a mistake.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What impresses men is not mind, but the result of mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Victories that are easy are cheap. Those only are worth having which come as the result of hard fighting.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most successful men in the end are those whose success is the result of steady accretion. It is the man who carefully advances step by step, with his mind becoming wider and wider -- and progressively better able to grasp any theme or situation -- persevering in what he knows to be practical, and concentrating his thought upon it, who is bound to succeed in the greatest degree.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The poverty of our century is unlike that of any other. It is not, as poverty was before, the result of natural scarcity, but of a set of priorities imposed upon the rest of the world by the rich. Consequently, the modern poor are not pitied but written off as trash. The twentieth-century consumer economy has produced the first culture for which a beggar is a reminder of nothing.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A thought which does not result in an action is nothing much, and an action which does not proceed from a thought is nothing at all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Success is often the result of taking a misstep in the right direction.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The power of a movement lies in the fact that it can indeed change the habits of people. This change is not the result of force but of dedication, of moral persuasion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most refined skills of color printing, the intricate techniques of wide-angle photography, provide us pictures of trivia bigger and more real than life. We forget that we see trivia and notice only that the reproduction is so good. Man fulfils his dream and by photographic magic produces a precise image of the Grand Canyon. The result is not that he adores nature or beauty the more. Instead he adores his camera -- and himself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The actor searches vainly for the sound of a vanished tradition, and critic and audience follow suit. We have lost all sense of ritual and ceremony -- whether it be connected with Christmas, birthdays or funerals -- but the words remain with us and old impulses stir in the marrow. We feel we should have rituals, we should do something about getting them and we blame the artists for not finding them for us. So the artist sometimes attempts to find new rituals with only his imagination as his source: he imitates the outer form of ceremonies, pagan or baroque, unfortunately adding his own trapping -- the result is rarely convincing. And after the years and years of weaker and waterier imitations we now find ourselves rejecting the very notion of a holy stage. It is not the fault of the holy that it has become a middle-class weapon to keep the children good.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Mockery is often the result of a poverty of wit.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think, we become.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Change is the end result of all true learning. Change involves three things: First, a dissatisfaction with self -- a felt void or need; second, a decision to change to fill the void or need; and third, a conscious dedication to the process of growth and change -- the willful act of making the change, doing something.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In war, events of importance are the result of trivial causes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The unconscious is the ocean of the unsayable, of what has been expelled from the land of language, removed as a result of ancient prohibitions.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Good breeding is the result of good sense, some good nature, and a little self-denial for the sake of others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The mind is the result of the torments the flesh undergoes or inflicts upon itself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
True courage is a result of reasoning. A brave mind is always impregnable.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not the simple statement of facts that ushers in freedom; it is the constant repetition of them that has this liberating effect. Tolerance is the result not of enlightenment, but of boredom.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Though man is the only beast that can write, he has small reason to be proud of it. When he utters something that is wise it is nothing that the river horse does not know, and most of his creations are the result of accident.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We can only write well about our sins because it is too difficult to recall a virtuous act or even whether it was the result of good or evil motives.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Morals are in all countries the result of legislation and government; they are not African or Asian or European: they are good or bad.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When I have fully decided that a result is worth getting I go ahead of it and make trial after trial until it comes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If men as individuals surrender to the call of their elementary instincts, avoiding pain and seeking satisfaction only for their own selves, the result for them all taken together must be a state of insecurity, of fear, and of promiscuous misery.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When we read of human beings behaving in certain ways, with the approval of the author, who gives his benediction to this behavior by his attitude towards the result of the behavior arranged by himself, we can be influenced towards behaving in the same way.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have tried to make all my acts and commercial moves the result of definite consideration and sound judgment. There were never any great ventures or risks. I practiced honest, slow-growing business methods, and tried to back them with energy and good system.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
People have been known to achieve more as a result of working with others than against them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Capital is a result of labor, and is used by labor to assist it in further production. Labor is the active and initial force, and labor is therefore the employer of capital.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Self-confidence is the result of a successfully survived risk.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Yes! To this thought I hold with firm persistence; The last result of wisdom stamps it true; He only earns his freedom and existence Who daily conquers them anew.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What is important in life is life, and not the result of life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A great number of the disappointments and mishaps of the troubled world are the direct result of literature and the allied arts. It is our belief that no human being who devotes his life and energy to the manufacture of fantasies can be anything but fundamentally inadequateMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
This is an age of intellectual sauces, of essence, of distillation. We have conclusions without deductions, abridgments of history and abridgments of science without leading facts. We have animals for literature, Cabinet Encyclopaedias, Family Libraries, Diffusion Societies, and heaven knows what else! What is all this for? Not to add knowledge to the learned, but to tell points to the ignorant, without giving them the trouble to acquire the links. Oh! it is sad work. And the result will be injurious to all classes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In history an additional result is commonly produced by human actions beyond that which they aim at and obtain -- that which they immediately recognize and desire. They gratify their own interest; but something further is thereby accomplished, latent in the actions in question, though not present to their consciousness, and not included in their design.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Many divorces are not really the result of irreparable injury but involve, instead, a desire on the part of the man or woman to shatter the setup, start out from scratch alone, and make life work for them all over again. They want the risk of disaster, want to touch bottom, see where bottom is, and, coming up, to breathe the air with relief and relish again.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The superficiality of the American is the result of his hustling. It needs leisure to think things out; it needs leisure to mature. People in a hurry cannot think, cannot grow, nor can they decay. They are preserved in a state of perpetual puerility.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Character is the result of two things: Mental attitude and the way we spend our time.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Character is the result of a system of stereotyped principals.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Mathematics may be compared to a mill of exquisite workmanship, which grinds your stuff to any degree of fineness; but, nevertheless, what you get out depends on what you put in; and as the grandest mill in the world will not extract wheat flour from peas cods, so pages of formulae will not get a definite result out of loose data.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In the fevered state of our country, no good can ever result from any attempt to set one of these fiery zealots to rights, either in fact or principle. They are determined as to the facts they will believe, and the opinions on which they will act. Get by them, therefore, as you would by an angry bull; it is not for a man of sense to dispute the road with such an animal.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our life always expresses the result of our dominant thoughts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every divorce is the result of selfishness on the part of one or the other or both parties to a marriage contract. Someone is thinking of self comforts, conveniences, freedoms, luxuries, or ease. Sometimes the ceaseless pin pricking of an unhappy, discontented, and selfish spouse can finally add up to serious physical violence. Sometimes people are goaded to the point where they erringly feel justified in doing the things that are so wrong. Nothing of course justifies sin.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We can never establish with certainty what part of our relations with others is the result of our emotions -- love, antipathy, charity, or malice -- and what part is predetermined by the constant power play among individuals.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion, you must set yourself on fire first.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
People differ in capacity, skill, health, strength; and unequal fortune is a necessary result of unequal condition. Such inequality is far from being disadvantageous either to individuals or to the community.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As a result of the feminist revolution, feminine becomes an abusive epithet.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What we do upon some great occasion will probably depend on what we already are. What we are will be the result of previous years of self-discipline.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When we have done our best, we should wait the result in peace.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It can even come about that a created will cancels out, not perhaps the exertion, but the result of divine action; for in this sense, God himself has told us that God wishes things which do not happen because man does not wish them! Thus the rights of men are immense, and his greatest misfortune is to be unaware of them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Realizing that our actions, feelings and behavior are the result of our own images and beliefs gives us the level that psychology has always needed for changing personality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The medium is the message. This is merely to say that the personal and social consequences of any medium -- that is, of any extension of ourselves -- result from the new scale that is introduced into our affairs by each extension of ourselves, or by any new technology.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The professional celebrity, male and female, is the crowning result of the star system of a society that makes a fetish of competition. In America, this system is carried to the point where a man who can knock a small white ball into a series of holes in the ground with more efficiency than anyone else thereby gains social access to the President of the United States.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
