Max McKeown Quotes

"Give serious thought to why your company should care about your strategy. Specifically, find problems that the board wants to be solved. What are senior managers scared of? Part of becoming a credible strategic thinker is learning effective approaches to selling ideas for your situation. Youll know that youre getting better at selling (or pitching) strategy when managers start coming to you when there is strategic thinking to be done."

Erik H Erikson Quotes

"Hope is both the earliest and the most indispensable virtue inherent in the state of being alive. If life is to be sustained hope must remain, even where confidence is wounded, trust impaired."

Alec Guinness Quotes

James Arminius Quotes

"To explain the matter I will employ a simile, which yet, I confess is very dissimilar; but its dissimilitude is greatly in favour of my sentiments. A rich man bestows, on a poor and famishing beggar, alms by which he may be able to maintain himself and his family. Does it cease to be a pure gift, because the beggar extends his hand to receive it? Can it be said with propriety, that the alms depended partly on THE LIBERALITY of the Donor, and partly on THE LIBERTY of the Receiver, though the latter would not have possessed the alms unless he had received it by stretching out his hand? Can it be correctly said, BECAUSE THE BEGGAR IS ALWAYS PREPARED TO RECEIVE, that he can have the alms, or not have it, just as he pleases? If these assertions cannot be truly made about a beggar who receives alms, how much less can they be made about the gift of faith, for the receiving of which far more acts of Divine Grace are required!"

Vanessa Marcil Quotes

Quotes About Mouche

"Alas! replied Maître Mouche, she must be trained to take her part in the struggle of life. One does not come into this world simply to amuse oneself, and to do just what one pleases.One comes into this world, I responded, rather warmly, to enjoy what is beautiful and what is good, and to do as one pleases, when the things one wants to do are noble, intelligent, and generous. An education which does not cultivate the will, is an education that depraves the mind. It is a teachers duty to teach the pupil how to will." - Author: Anatole France

Quotes About Hatred And Forgiveness

"See, forgiveness doesnt happen all at once. Its not an event -- its a process. Forgiveness happens while youre asleep, while youre dreaming, while youre inline at the coffee shop, while youre showering, eating, farting, jerking off. It happens in the back of your mind, and then one day you realize that you dont hate the person anymore, that your anger has gone away somewhere. And you understand. Youve forgiven them. You dont know how or why. It sneaked up on you. It happened in the small spaces between thoughts and in the seconds between ideas and blinks. Thats where forgiveness happens. Because anger and hatred, when left unfed, bleed away like air from a punctured tire, over time and days and years. Forgiveness is stealth. At least, thats what I hope." - Author: Barry Lyga
