Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Torquil Campbell
#1. Your obstacles define your achievements, and without those obstacles, you're just another bland nothing. #Quote by Torquil Campbell
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#2. When it comes to the Civil War, all of our popular understanding, our popular history and culture, our great films, the subtext of our arguments are in defiance of its painful truths. It is not a mistake that Gone with the Wind is one of the most read works of American literature or that The Birth of a Nation is the most revered touchstone of all American film. Both emerge from a need for palliatives and painkillers, an escape from the truth of those five short years in which 750,000 American soldiers were killed, more than all American soldiers killed in all other American wars combined, in a war declared for the cause of expanding "African slavery." That war was inaugurated not reluctantly, but lustily, by men who believed property in humans to be the cornerstone of civilization, to be an edict of God, and so delivered their own children to his maw. And when that war was done, the now-defeated God lived on, honored through the human sacrifice of lynching and racist pogroms. The history breaks the myth. And so the history is ignored, and fictions are weaved into our art and politics that dress villainy in martyrdom and transform banditry into chivalry, and so strong are these fictions that their emblem, the stars and bars, darkens front porches and state capitol buildings across the land to this day. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Frank Bunker Gilbreth, Sr.
#3. We're worn into grooves by Time-by our habits. In the end, these grooves are going to show whether we've been second rate or champions, each in his way in dispatching the affairs of every day. By choosing our habits, we determine the grooves into which Time will wear us; and these are grooves that enrich our lives and make for ease of mind, peace, happiness - achievement. #Quote by Frank Bunker Gilbreth, Sr.
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Charles Stanley
#4. Another way Christ affects us is by inspiring our gratitude. He left the glories of heaven in order to become our Savior, and when we recognize that sacrifice, we are filled with thankfulness and praise. #Quote by Charles Stanley
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Marguerite Yourcenar
#5. To eat fruit is to welcome into oneself a fair living object, which is alien to us but is nourished and protected like us by earth; it is to consume a sacrifice wherein we sustain ourselves at the expense of things. #Quote by Marguerite Yourcenar
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Omar Khayyam
#6. Hearts are like tapers, which at beauteous eyes Kindle a flame of love that never dies; And beauty is a flame, where hearts, like moths, Offer themselves a burning sacrifice. #Quote by Omar Khayyam
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#7. Some people do not afford a healthy diet and lifestyle because of their health insurance. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Beatriz Williams
#8. Well, nothing's a life or death struggle anymore, is it? The era of honor and sacrifice is over." I looked again at the O'Brian novels, lined up in order. "Jack Aubrey's full of human failings - so's Maturin - but they have principles, and they'd give their lives for them. Or for each other. Now it's all about money and status and celebrity. Not that people haven't always cared about those things, but it used to be considered venal, didn't it?" I shrugged. "It's like nobody bothers to grow up anymore. We just want to be kids all our lives. Collecting toys, having fun. #Quote by Beatriz Williams
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Ayn Rand
#9. He lost, for that moment, all the days and dogmas of his past; his concepts, his problems, his pain were wiped out; he knew only - as from a great, clear distance - that man exists for the achievement of his desires, and he wondered why he stood here, he wondered who had the right to demand that he waste a single irreplaceable hour of his life, when his only desire was to seize the slender figure in gray and hold her through the length of whatever time there was left for him to exist. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by John Murray
#10. Perseverance means the engagement of our persons in the most intense and concentrated devotion to those means which God has ordained for the achievement of his saving purpose. The scripture doctrine of perseverance has no affinity with the quietism and antinomianism which are so prevalent in evangelical circles. #Quote by John Murray
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Kishore Bansal
#11. Mothers are bravest and best they sacrifice themselves for the welfare of family. #Quote by Kishore Bansal
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Bill Bryson
#12. It's an unnerving thought that we may be the living universe's supreme achievement and its worst nightmare simultaneously. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Arthur Koestler
#13. Satan, on the contrary, is thin, ascetic and a fanatical devotee of logic. He reads Machiavelli, Ignatius of Loyola, Marx and Hegel; he is cold and unmerciful to mankind, out of a kind of mathematical mercifulness. He is damned always to do that which is most repugnant to him: to become a slaughterer, in order to abolish slaughtering, to sacrifice lambs so that no more lambs may be slaughtered, to whip people with knouts so that they may learn not to let themselves be whipped, to strip himself of every scruple in the name of a higher scrupulousness, and to challenge the hatred of mankind because of his love for it
an abstract and geometric love. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Victor Hugo
#14. Momentary life has its rights, and is not bound to sacrifice itself constantly to the future. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Alphonsus Liguori
#15. Before the coming of Jesus Christ, men fled away from God and, being attached to the earth, refused to unite themselves to their Creator. But the loving God has drawn them to Himself by the bonds of love, as He promised by the prophet Osee [Hosea]: "I will draw them with the cords of Adam, with the bonds of love" (11:4). These bonds are the benefits, the lights, the calls to His love, the promises of Paradise which He makes to us, but above all, the gift which He has bestowed upon us of Jesus Christ in the Sacrifice of the Cross and in the Sacrament of the Altar ... #Quote by Alphonsus Liguori
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Richard Reti
#16. It is a delight to watch a young and gifted chess player. To him have come no sinister experiences; to him continual carping care is foreign. Therefore he loves the attack and the bold sacrifice; for theirin lies the shortest way to his ultimate objective. #Quote by Richard Reti
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Bengie Molina
#17. My dad and my mom had to sacrifice so much, and had to teach us and show us the way of going about things, how to be humble, all those things. They helped us stay on track for what we wanted to do. #Quote by Bengie Molina
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Paulo Freire
#18. One of the gravest obstacles to the achievement of liberation is that oppressive reality absorbs those within it and thereby acts to submerge men's consciousness. #Quote by Paulo Freire
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#19. Woman is the embodiment of sacrifice and suffering and her advent to public life should, therefore, result in purifying it, in restraining unbridled ambition and accumulation of property. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Steven Erikson
#20. From faith,' replied Emral Lanear, 'do we not seek guidance?'
'Guidance, or the organized assembly and reification of all the prejudices you collectively hold dear?'
'You would not speak to us!'
'I grew to fear the power of words – their power, and their powerlessness. No matter how profound or perceptive, no matter how deafening their truth, they are helpless to defend themselves. I could have given you a list. I could have stated, in the simplest terms, that this is how I want you to behave, and this must be the nature of your belief, and your service, and your sacrifice. But how long, I wonder, before that list twisted in interpretation? How long before deviation yielded condemnation, torture, death?' She slowly leaned forward. 'How long, before my simple rules to a proper life become a call to war? To the slaughter of unbelievers? How long, Emral Lanear, before you begin killing in my name?'
'Then what do you want of us?' Lanear demanded.
'You could have stopped thinking like children who need to be told what's right and what's wrong. You damned well know what's right and what's wrong. It's pretty simple, really. It's all about harm. It's about hurting, and not just physical, either. You want a statement for your faith in me? You wish me to offer you the words you claim to need, the rules by which you are to live your lives? Very well, but I should warn you, every deity worthy of worship will offer you the same prescription. Here it is, then. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Cassandra Clare
#21. The love a parent had for a child, there is nothing else like it. No other love so consuming. No father-not even Valentine-would sacrifice his son for a hunk of metal, no matter how powerful." (The Inquisitor)
"You don't know my father. He'll laugh in your face and offer you some money to mail my body back to Idris." (Jace)
"Don't be absurd-"
"You're right," Jace said. "Come to think of it, he'll probably make you pay the shipping charges yourself. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by H.D.F. Kitto
#22. It is an interesting, though idle, speculation, what would be the effect on us if all our reformers, revolutionaries, planners, politicians, and life-arrangers in general were soaked in Homer from their youth up, like the Greeks. They might realize that on the happy day when there is a refrigerator in every home, and two in none, when we all have the opportunity of working for the common good (whatever that is), when Common Man (whoever he is) is triumphant, though not improved--that men will still come and go like the generations of leaves in the forest; that he will still be weak, and the gods strong and incalculable; that the quality of a man matters more than his achievement; that violence and recklessness will still lead to disaster, and that this will fall on the innocent as well as on the guilty. #Quote by H.D.F. Kitto
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Julio Alexi Genao
#23. I gave you all my secrets, and you lost them all. You lost a lot of things.
But the treasure of it was in the giving, not the keeping. #Quote by Julio Alexi Genao
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Tim Lebbon
#24. Love is harsh, and it consumes. And more than anything, it demands sacrifice. #Quote by Tim Lebbon
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Benjamin Hoff
#25. Without difficulties, life would be like a stream without rocks and curves – about as interesting as concrete. Without problems, there can be no personal growth, no group achievement, no progress of humanity. But what mattes about problems is what one does with them. #Quote by Benjamin Hoff
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#26. Power properly understood is nothing but the ability to achieve purpose. It is the strength required to bring about social, political and economic change. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Samuel Smiles
#27. The cheapest of all things is kindness, its exercise requiring the least possible trouble and self-sacrifice. Win hearts, said Burleigh to Queen Elizabeth, and you have all men's hearts and purses. #Quote by Samuel Smiles
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Ayn Rand
#28. Let's stop and think for a moment. Is sacrifice a virtue? Can a man sacrifice his integrity? His honor? His freedom? His ideal? His convictions? The honesty of his feeling? The independence of his thought? #Quote by Ayn Rand
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Trevor Treharne
#29. The entire Jesus concept, that human sacrifice should be the substratum of a moral religion of love, strikes me as incongruous. God condemned us and Jesus saved us, and they are actually the same being? Christianity is the idea that you are so abhorrent that God had to kill himself. He had to embody the human form and send himself on a bizarre suicide mission just to revoke the disgustingness of the humans he created. I balk at suggestions that these ideas dictate to the concepts of morality and love. #Quote by Trevor Treharne
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Eric Hoffer
#30. Crude absurdities, trivial nonsense, and sublime truths are equally potent in readying people for self-sacrifice if they are accepted as the sole, eternal truth #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#31. In one word, the great pillar of the Christian's hope is substitution. The vicarious sacrifice of Christ for the guilty, Christ being made sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in him, Christ offering up a true and proper expiatory and substitutionary sacrifice in the room, place, and stead of as many as the Father gave him, who are known to God by name, and are recognized in their own hearts by their trusting in Jesus
this is the cardinal fact of the gospel. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Gail Carriger
#32. Dearest Alexia,
Oh, please absolve me of this guilt I already feel squishing on my very soul! My troubled heart weeps! Oh dear, Ivy was getting flowery. My bones ache with the sin that I am about to commit. Oh, why must I have bones? I have lost myself to this transplanting love. You could not possibly understand how this feels! Yet try to comprehend, dearest Alexia, I am like a delicate bloom. Marriage without love is all very well for people like you, but I should wilt and wither. I need a man possessed of a poet's soul! I am simply not so stoic as you. I cannot stand to be apart from him one moment longer! The caboose of my love has derailed, and I must sacrifice all for the man I adore! Please do not judge me harshly! It was all for love!
~ Ivy. #Quote by Gail Carriger
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Henri Frederic Amiel
#33. Let us never be afraid of innocent joy; God is good and what he does is well done; resign yourself to everything, even happiness; ask for the spirit of sacrifice, of detachment, of renunciation, and above all, for the spirit of joy and gratitude. #Quote by Henri Frederic Amiel
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Bruce Bawer
#34. Clearly, Channing had not taught her young charges that the Declaration and Constitution, while two of the noblest documents in the history of humankind, were also, naturally, products of their time that reflected the limitations of their time (which, needless to say, is why the Constitution has been amended so many times since its ratification); no, she had taught them to revile the founding fathers - men whose vision, courage, and sacrifice made possible the freedom these students have known (and taken for granted) all their lives. These young women were incapable of grasping that the very criteria by which they presumed to judge the author of the Declaration and Constitution would not be available to them if not for those men's efforts. To say this, of course, is not to blame these students for their ignorance, but to underscore just how profoundly ill-served they are by courses of this sort. #Quote by Bruce Bawer
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Andy Irons
#35. If you dont see me on tour, its because I have found happiness away from winning, and that might be the biggest achievement I could ever accomplish. #Quote by Andy Irons
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Dick Durbin
#36. We all join the President in applauding the sacrifices made by our brave men and women in uniform. But we must continue to provide them the tools they need to accomplish the difficult tasks they face. #Quote by Dick Durbin
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#37. To blame my failures on the lack of resources is less about the lack of resources and more about my unwillingness to access those resources. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Michael Laitman
#38. A pyramid of souls exists, based on the desire to receive. At the base of the pyramid are many souls with small desires, earthly, looking for a comfortable life in an animal-like manner: food, sex, sleep. The next layer comprises fewer souls, those with the urge to acquire wealth. These are people who are willing to invest their entire lives in making money, and who sacrifice themselves for the sake of being rich.

Next are those that will do anything to control others, to govern and reach positions of power. An even greater desire, felt by even fewer souls, is for knowledge; these are scientists and academics, who spend their lives engaged in discovering something specific. They are interested in nothing but their all-important discovery.

Located at the zenith of the pyramid is the strongest desire, developed by only a small few, for the attainment of the spiritual world. All these levels are built into the pyramid. #Quote by Michael Laitman
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by J. Mack Stiles
#39. God is our Creator. He is loving, holy, and just. One day he will execute perfect justice against all sin. People are made in the image of God. We are beautiful and amazing creatures with dignity, worth, and value. But through our willful, sinful rebellion against God, we have turned from being his children to his enemies. Still, all people have the capacity to be in a restored loving relationship with the living God. Christ is the Son of God, whose sinless life gave him the ability to become the perfect sacrifice. Through his death on the cross, he ransomed sinful people. Christ's death paid for the sins of all who come to him in faith. Christ's resurrection from the dead is the ultimate vindication of the truth of these claims. The response God requires from us is to acknowledge our sin, repent, and believe in Christ. So we turn from sin, especially the sin of unbelief, and turn to God in faith, with the understanding that we will follow him the rest of our days. #Quote by J. Mack Stiles
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Gary L. Bauer
#40. When a liberal professor takes enormous intellectual liberties by openly promoting an ideological agenda to his students, the cry of academic freedom rings across the quads. But when a conservative professor is punished for publishing an article in a politically incorrect journal, there is no defense of intellectual diversity. What is billed as academic neutrality turns out to be a smoke screen for the relativistic liberal agenda.

Today's relativists could not have gotten away with their double standards in a culture that prized truth. But a gradual, sustained assault on truth has been carried out through the soft underbelly of Western culture: the arts. In film, music, and television, the themes of sensual pleasure and individual choice have drowned out the tried-and-true virtues of faith, family, self-sacrifice, duty, honor, patriotism, and fidelity in marriage. Cultural mechanics have wielded their tools to dull the public's sense of reasonable limits. In an Age of Consent, the silly and the profound are becoming indistinguishable. #Quote by Gary L. Bauer
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#41. If there is to be no loss whatever of dignity or self-respect in getting and staying on relief, then there can be no gain in dignity or self-respect in makings some sacrifices to keep off. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#42. There are stages in life that you must go through to find out the true value of your worth. I learned that nobody knows your worth but you. Nobody will value you more than yourself. People will treat you according to how much you can take.
Do you know how much can you take? Do you know your limits?
I had to go through hell and beyond to answer both questions. When I look back, I ask myself, who's to blame? #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#43. A woman lives with resentment. Resentment hurts, and it is a throbbing pain that leaves deep scars. Although some of the scars heal, the resentment lingers on. When she kneels to pray, she feels as if her prayers fall on deaf ears; the burdens are intolerable. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Achievement And Sacrifice quotes by Muhammad Ali Jinnah
#44. That freedom can never be attained by a nation without suffering and sacrifice has been amply borne out by the recent tragic happenings in this subcontinent. #Quote by Muhammad Ali Jinnah
