Quotes About Kindness And Honesty

"It has always seemed strange to me... the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second." - Author: John Steinbeck

Quotes About Worthy Friends

"["F]or its not possible," [Socrates] said, "for anybody to experience a greater evil than hating arguments. Hatred of arguments and hatred of human beings come about in the same way. For hatred of human beings arises from artlessly trusting somebody to excess, and believing that human being to be in every way true and sound and trustworthy, and then a little later discovering that this person is wicked and untrustworthy - and then having this experience again with another. And whenever somebody experiences this many times, and especially at the hands of just those he might regard as his most intimate friends and comrades, he then ends up taking offense all the time and hates all human beings and believes theres nothing at all sound in anybody." - Author: Plato

Quotes About Standing Up For Something

"Its easy to minimize a persons hurt without understanding the nature of pain. People often like to categorize how much a person should or shouldnt hurt about things. For example, when someone is upset about something, they say, "At least youre not paralyzed, or starving in Africa." While its imperative to be grateful for what we have, I think people often mistaken the nature of pain, when they ‘categorize in this way. The criteria for how much something hurts is not dependent on the thing itself. It is dependent on 2 things:1. The strength of the attachment.2. The level of Divine help.Therefore to minimize the devastation of pain:1. Dont be attached to (dependent on) temporary things.2. Seek Divine help.And dont assign judgement for peoples pain." - Author: Yasmin Mogahed

Quotes About Identitet

"Föräldrakärlek är den enda kärleken där det slutliga målet måste vara skillsmässa. En mor som sätter värde på sonens strävan efter oberoende och uppmuntrar honom att skiljas från henne när han behöver det ger honom mycket viktiga verktyg för att handskas med livet. När modern är villig att låta sonen etablera sin egen identitet genom att låta honom ta risker på egen hand och låta honom göra sina egna misstag, och ändå finns till hands om han skulle behöva henne, bidrar hon till att skapa en människa som har förtroende för sig själv och sin förmåga.Den förkvävande modern hindrar och begränsar i stället sonens utveckling genom att styra honom för mycket och få honom att känna sig oduglig och hjälplös." - Author: Susan Forward

Quotes About Crying Out For Help

"Im not crying out for help, but I am sharing my experience in the hopes that readers will get something out of it. Im not the one who gets to decide what that is, if anything. Im just starting the "journey" if you will, so I cant possibly know yet what the "message" of my life really is. I only know what has happened so far, and how Ive felt up until this moment. I agree that reading about the pain of others is concerning when they are still hurting and in the same situation as when they wrote about it. But what can you do? You can reach out, ask how you can help and be there to listen. You cant save someone who doesnt want to be saved. You cant love someone who doesnt love themselves enough to take care of themselves and stay out of bad situations. Believe me, I know this." - Author: Ashly Lorenzana

Quotes About Following Bad Leaders

"Leaders are not, as we are often led to think, people who go along with huge crowds following them. Leaders are people who go their own way without caring, or even looking to see, whether anyone is following them. "Leadership qualities" are not the qualities that enable people to attract followers, but those that enable them to do without them. They include, at the very least, courage, endurance, patience, humor, flexibility, resourcefulness, stubbornness, a keen sense of reality, and the ability to keep a cool and clear head, even when things are going badly. True leaders, in short, do not make people into followers, but into other leaders." - Author: John Holt
