Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you ready or not, to put this plan into action.
Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.
Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.
In dim eclipse, disastrous twilight sheds
On half the nations, and with fear of change
~John Milton, Paradise Lost (1667; 1674), Book I, line 597
Till Peter’s keys some christen’d Jove adorn,
And Pan to Moses lends his Pagan horn.
~Alexander Pope, The Dunciad (1728 to 1743), Book III, line 109
See dying vegetables life sustain,
See life dissolving vegetate again;
All forms that perish other forms supply;
(By turns we catch the vital breath and die).
~Alexander Pope, An Essay on Man (1733-34), Epistle III, line 15
A state is better governed which has few laws, and those laws strictly observed.
~René Descartes (1596–1650), French mathematician, philosopher and scientist
I became convinced that noncooperation with evil is as much a moral obligation as is cooperation with good.
~Martin Luther King Jr., The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.
177. An unjust law is itself a species of violence. Arrest for its breach is more so. Now the law of nonviolence says that violence should be resisted not by counter-violence but by nonviolence. This I do by breaking the law and by peacefully submitting to arrest and imprisonment.
~Mahatma Gandhi, Non-violence in Peace and War 1942-49
As people go
Their separate ways
May each one pause
To give God praise.
