Favorite Lifes Greatest Gifts Quotes

1. "I said that he was my superior in observation and deduction. If the art of the detective began and ended in reasoning from an armchair, my brother would be the greatest criminal agent that ever lived. But he has no ambition and no energy. He will not even go out of his way to verify his own solutions, and would rather be considered wrong than take the trouble to prove himself right."
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
2. "I guess I was a mom so late in life, my daughter was the greatest thing since sliced bread."
Author: Candice Bergen
3. "Remember, Little Ones, everything is not important all the time. Only living is important all the time. Not things. Not money. Not more things and more endless money. Spend well the quality of your time. And yes, be greedy with your hours. If only to then give those hours away as the most precious gifts you have to offer to yourself, your family, and your friends. And yes, to my Little Ones." –From The Legacy Letters–"The Everything and Nothing of Money."
Author: Carew Papritz
4. "Power. What do we mean? 'The ability to determine another man's luck.' ...how is it that some men attain mastery over others while the vast majority live and die as minions, as livestock? The answer is a holy trinity. First: God-given gifts of charisma. Second: the discipline to nurture these gifts to maturity, for though humanity's topsoil is fertile with talent, only one seed in ten thousand will ever flower -- for want of discipline. Third: the will to power."
Author: David Mitchell
5. "Since I'm not sure what you've read or been told, I'll tell you what submission is to me and probably most, if not all submissives. It's more than a sexual experience, Mr. Morrison. It's a bond so powerful that it contains the very soul of the submissive. A man's domination and acceptance of the gift of submission is the greatest expression of love I believe there to be."
Author: Ella Dominguez
6. "I suppose a great and soul filling love is perhaps the greatest experience a man may have, but it is such a rarity as to be almost negligible."

7. "Maybe it's all utterly meaningless. Maybe it's all unutterably meaningful. If you want to know which, pay attention to what it means to be truly human in a world that half the time we're in love with and half the time scares the hell out of us. Any fiction that helps us pay attention to that is religious fiction. The unexpected sound of your name on somebody's lips. The good dream. The strange coincidence. The moment that brings tears to your eyes. The person who brings life to your life. Even the smallest events hold the greatest clues."
Author: Frederick Buechner
8. "Knowing what we know, how much more do we want to give Him something? But He seems to have everything. Well, not quite. He doesn't have you with Him again forever, not yet. I hope you are touched by the feelings of His heart enough to sense how much He wants to know you are coming home to Him. You can't give that gift to Him in one day, or one Christmas, but you could show Him today that you are on the way. You could pray. You could read a page of scripture. You could keep a commandment. If you have already done these, there is still something left to give. All around you are people He loves but can help only through you and me. One of the sure signs that we have accepted the gift of the Savior's atonement is that we give gifts to others."
Author: Henry B. Eyring
9. "In this age, which believes that there is a short cut to everything, the greatest lesson to be learned is that the most difficult way is, in the long run, the easiest."
Author: Henry Miller
10. "I could put up with heartbreaks and abortions and busted romances, but I had to have something under my belt to carry on, and I wanted something nourishing, something appetizing. I felt exactly like Jesus Christ would have felt if he had been taken down from the cross and not permitted to die in the flesh. I am sure that the shock of crucifixion would have been so great that he would have suffered a complete amnesia as regards humanity. I am certain that after his wounds had healed he wouldn't have given a damn about the tribulations of mankind but would have fallen with the greatest relish upon a fresh cup of coffee and a slice of toast, assuming he could have had it."
Author: Henry Miller
11. "Even if, by some especially unfortunate fate or by the niggardly provision of stepmotherly nature, [the good will] should be wholly lacking in the power to accomplish its purpose; if with the greatest effort it should yet achieve nothing, and only the good will should remain (not, to be sure, as a mere wish but as the summoning of all the means in our power), yet would it, like a jewel, still shine by its own light as something which has its full value in itself."
Author: Immanuel Kant
12. "I was posted to China in the summer of 1988, which was the greatest time ever, I think, to have been in China."
Author: John Pomfret
13. "How mysterious it is, to be in love. For you can be in love with one who knows nothing of you. Perhpas our greatest happinesses spring from such longings-being in love with one who is oblivious of you."
Author: Joyce Carol Oates
14. "A child is owed the greatest respect; if you have ever have something disgraceful in mind, don't ignore your son's tender years."
Author: Juvenal

Author: Lao Tzu
16. "As you know, I am a novelist, and I really want to write novels.

Author: Louis Begley

22. "For Americans, Acts 16:9 is the high-fructose corn syrup of Bible verses--an all-purpose ingredient we'll stir into everything from the ink on the Marshall Plan to canisters of Agent Orange. Our greatest goodness and our worst impulses come out of this missionary zeal, contributing to our overbearing (yet not entirely unwarranted) sense of our country as an inherently helpful force in the world. And, as with the apostle Paul, the notion that strangers want our help is sometimes a delusion."
Author: Sarah Vowell
23. "The greatest temptations are not those that solicit our consent to obvious sin, but those that offer us great evils masking as the greatest goods."
Author: Thomas Merton
