we must also be certain that there is no one true faith
or path by which it may spread.

is not the exploring of the mysteries of the outer space,

a world of freedom and brotherhood.

Sacrifice



Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice,
and is never the result of selfishness.
- Napoleon Hill

He who would accomplish much must sacrifice much.
- James Allen

Be unselfish.
That is the first and final commandment for those who
would be useful and happy in their usefulness.
If you think of yourself only, you cannot develop because
you are choking the source of development,
which is spiritual expansion through thought for others.
- Charles William Eliot

When people get caught up with that which is right
and they are willing to sacrifice for it,
there is no stopping point short of victory.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Life is a song - sing it.
Life is a game - play it.
Life is a challenge - meet it.
Life is a dream - realize it.
Life is a sacrifice - offer it.
Life is love - enjoy it.
- Sai Baba


The word "sacrifice" is an interesting word because it is usually associated with suffering - but that association is illogical. To "sacrifice" means to give up something you want in order to get something you want even more. You "sacrifice" eating deserts in order to get things that are much more valuable to you: good health and a longer life. If you didn't think those things were more important than the deserts, you wouldn't make that choice. So, trading the lesser for the greater should be a source of joy, right? But we suffer because we want the greater AND the lesser. Such is human nature.

and whose conscience approves their conduct,

- Thomas Paine

It is our choices ... that show what we truly are,
far more than our abilities.
- J. K. Rowling (Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets)

The ultimate test of a man's conscience
may be his willingness to sacrifice something today

of being into new circumstances

Embrace transformation as an opportunity.

Don't let resentments or pessimism answer for you.

- Flavia Weedn

Lives of great men all remind us, we can make our lives sublime,
and, departing, leave behind us, footprints on the sands of time.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Perspective

The beauty does not live out there;
the beauty's in my eyes.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact.
Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
- Marcus Aurelius

When a man you like switches from what
he said a year ago, or four years ago,
he is a broad-minded person who has courage enough
to change his mind with changing conditions.
When a man you don't like does it,
he is a liar who has broken his promise.
- Franklin Pierce Adams

Re-examine all that you have been told...
dismiss that which insults your soul.
- Walt Whitman

Please visit www.jlhuie.com often for quotes to inspire, motivate, comfort, or nudge you to look at life in new ways. Each day there are several new quotes on a common theme, which might be finding comfort, living life to the fullest, being of service to the less fortunate, giving thanks for your blessings, or a myriad of other topics. I hope you also like each day's picture-quote. Please let my know what you think of my Daily Quotes by emailing me at jlh @ sail7 .com
