Commitment quotes by Kevin Chamberlin

Commitment quotes by Phil Ivey

Commitment quotes by Ted Cruz
#6. It is true that I voted against the National Defense Authorization Act, because when I campaigned in Texas I told voters in Texas that I would oppose the federal government having the authority to detain U.S. citizens permanently with no due process. I have repeatedly supported an effort to take that out of that bill, and I honored that campaign commitment. #Quote by Ted Cruz
Commitment quotes by Timothy Geithner
#7. The world is likely to view any temporary extension of the income tax cuts for the top two percent as a prelude to a long-term or permanent extension, and that would hurt economic recovery as well by undermining confidence that we're prepared to make a commitment today to bring down our future deficits. #Quote by Timothy Geithner
Commitment quotes by Jay Cassidy
#8. If you are truly involved in a film and if you are going to do any kind of good work, you have to have that full commitment to the work. If you aren't willing to do that, or if that is not in your nature, I say steer clear of it. #Quote by Jay Cassidy
Commitment quotes by Bell Hooks
#9. Love is a combination of care, commitment, knowledge, responsibility, respect and trust. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Commitment quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#10. Awakening is not a state but a process: an ethical way of life and commitment that enables human flourishing. As such, it is no longer the exclusive preserve of enlightened teachers or accomplished yogis. Likewise, nirvana-the stopping of craving-is not the goal of the path but its very source. For human flourishing first stirs in that clear, bright, empty space where neurotic self-centredness realizes that it has no ground at all to stand on. One is then freed to pour forth like sunlight. #Quote by Stephen Batchelor
Commitment quotes by Jack Canfield
#11. There is a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results. KEN BLANCHARD Chief Spiritual Officer of the Ken Blanchard Companies and coauthor of over 30 books, including the classic best seller The One Minute Manager #Quote by Jack Canfield
Commitment quotes by Peter M. Senge
#12. The practice of shared vision involves the skills of unearthing shared "pictures of the future" that foster genuine commitment and enrollment rather than compliance. In mastering this discipline, leaders learn the counterproductiveness of trying to dictate a vision, no matter how heartfelt. #Quote by Peter M. Senge
Commitment quotes by The Prophet Of Life
#13. As Oofa got closer he began to have second thoughts. He knew that the government would condemn his actions. He knew they might take their anger out on his family, He knew that his death would be a tragedy. He realized that he didn't want to die. From The Commitment in the Kindle book 9: 9 Stories of Fiction by The Prophet of life #Quote by The Prophet Of Life
Commitment quotes by Oscar De La Renta
#14. Things never happen on accident. They happen because you have a vision, you have a commitment, you have a dream. #Quote by Oscar De La Renta
Commitment quotes by Leonard Boswell
#15. As the 29th state to join the United States of America, it is our turn to show the nation what represents Iowa. Our commitment to quality education, hard work, and small-town values are all represented in the Iowa quarter. #Quote by Leonard Boswell
Commitment quotes by Russell Crowe
#16. I like villains because there's something so attractive about a committed person - they have a plan, an ideology, no matter how twisted. They're motivated. #Quote by Russell Crowe
Commitment quotes by J.I. Packer
#17. To summarize, then, it appears that Christian holiness is a number of things together. It has both outward and inward aspects. Holiness is a matter of both action and motivation, conduct and character, divine grace and human effort, obedience and creativity, submission and initiative, consecration to God and commitment to people, self-discipline and self-giving, righteousness and love. It is a matter of Spirit-led law-keeping, a walk, or course of life, in the Spirit that displays the fruit of the Spirit (Christlikeness of attitude and disposition). It is a matter of seeking to imitate Jesus' way of behaving, through depending on Jesus for deliverance from carnal self-absorption and for discernment of spiritual needs and possibilities. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Commitment quotes by Howard Coble
#18. I am appreciative of the Bush administration's commitment to fair trade by looking at the facts in this case and ruling affirmatively for the implementation of quotas in this specific category. #Quote by Howard Coble

Commitment quotes by Evangeline Lilly
#20. Saying 'no' is not hard for me; it's scarier for me to say 'yes.' I'm actually more afraid of commitment than of saying 'no.' #Quote by Evangeline Lilly
Commitment quotes by Barbara Brookes
#21. Twenty two year old Connie Jones, who had boarded in the home of charismatic Methodist and pacifist Ormond Burton, was a member of the No More War movement and the Christian Pacifist Society. She first attended the Friday night public meetings at which the pacifists argued their case in 1941. She stepped onto the podium, stating, "the Lord Jesus Christ tells us to love one another," and was promptly arrested by Wellington's chief inspector of police. Charged with obstruction under the Emergency Regulations, she was sentenced to three months' hard labour with harsh conditions at the Point Halswell Reformatory - an experience that did nothing to dampen her commitment to pacifism. #Quote by Barbara Brookes
Commitment quotes by Richard C. Lewontin
#22. Our willingness to accept scientific claims that are against common sense is the key to an understanding of the real struggle between science and the supernatural. We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.
[Billions and Billions of Demons - JANUARY 9, 1997 ISSUE] #Quote by Richard C. Lewontin
Commitment quotes by Robert M. Hutchins
#23. America's experiment with government of the people, by the people, and for the people depends not only on constitutional structure and organization but also on the commitment, person to person, that we make to each other. #Quote by Robert M. Hutchins
Commitment quotes by Jeff Manion
#24. We applaud endurance at the finish line, but those middle miles of plugging along are fairly uneventful. Commitment isn't flashy, and long devotion often goes unnoticed. #Quote by Jeff Manion
Commitment quotes by Rebecca Traister
#25. In work, it is possible to find commitment, attachment, chemistry, and connection. In fact, it's high time that more people acknowledged the electric pull that women can feel for their profession, the exciting heat of ambition and frisson of success. #Quote by Rebecca Traister
Commitment quotes by William J. Brennan
#26. While the machinery of law enforcement and indeed the nature of crime itself have changed dramatically since the Fourth Amendment became part of the Nation's fundamental law in 1791, what the Framers understood then remains true today - that the task of combating crime and convicting the guilty will in every era seem of such critical and pressing concern that we may be lured by the temptations of expediency into forsaking our commitment to protecting individual liberty and privacy. #Quote by William J. Brennan
Commitment quotes by Suzanne Woods Fisher
#27. Become Amish? If you admire our faith, strengthen yours. If you admire our sense of commitment, deepen yours. If you admire our community spirit, build your own. If you admire the simple life, cut back. If you admire deep character and enduring values, live them yourself. #Quote by Suzanne Woods Fisher
Commitment quotes by Noreena Hertz
#28. We must embrace a new agenda based on inclusiveness; a commitment to reconnecting the social and the economic; a relinking of the latter to a plausible redistributive system; and a determination to ensure that everyone has access to justice. All these things are within our reach. #Quote by Noreena Hertz
Commitment quotes by Alan Cohen
#29. After you have made your commitment to say no to what no longer serves you, you will probably be invited to demonstrate that you really mean it. #Quote by Alan Cohen
Commitment quotes by Sharon Weil
#30. Ursula, we have to talk ... ' he said, almost blurting. He couldn't believe he was in the "we have to talk" position. It was so unnerving. 'I have to ask you ... Let's be each other's emergency contact numbers.' This was his first concession towards commitment. #Quote by Sharon Weil
Commitment quotes by Emily Thorne
#31. Some say that our lives are defined by the sum of our choices. But it isn't really our choices that distinguish who we are. It's our commitment to them. #Quote by Emily Thorne
Commitment quotes by Carlos Ghosn
#32. We are still keeping, as much as we can to the one million commitment that we made, hoping that at a certain point in time, the headwinds represented by the strength of the yen will be a little bit less strong. #Quote by Carlos Ghosn
Commitment quotes by Kedar Joshi
#33. If I am convinced that I will procure the profoundest idea only by undergoing the profoundest pain, I shall beg for strength to endure that pain. #Quote by Kedar Joshi
Commitment quotes by Ian Fuhr
#34. If you do not treat people with the respect they deserve, do not expect any kind of commitment to your productivity goals and target. #Quote by Ian Fuhr
Commitment quotes by Jayni Chase
#35. We need to invest in clean energy technologies. We need to rush them to market while rebuilding our energy networks intelligently. And it's imperative that we push toward a cultural shift away from energy waste to respectful conservation with fierce commitment that will carry us to the other side. #Quote by Jayni Chase
Commitment quotes by Susan Wojcicki
#36. At the end of the day, both men and women who become CEOs have showed tenacity and hard work to succeed in their careers. It takes not just skills but also extreme dedication and commitment. And regardless of gender, CEOs are measured by the same criteria - the growth and success of the business. #Quote by Susan Wojcicki
Commitment quotes by Antonio Logan
#37. Relationships fail because of trust issues, commitment issues and communication issues. Without communication there is no relationship. Without respect there is no LOVE. Without trust there is no reason to continue. Stay grounded to the one you love. Respect him or her to the utmost. Respect the relationship. If the relationship is healthy, then keep on keeping on and never let a Hurricane, Tornado, or Tsunami tear your house down. Life's to short for broken hearts. Life's to short for betrayal or back stabbing. Life's to short to live with the thoughts of "What if's". Life's to short to waste a perfectly good heart. Adhere to the truth, if not Karma has no deadline. She could strike whenever you're in a relationship or married, then you look back on years ago wondering "What if... #Quote by Antonio Logan
Commitment quotes by Lena Dunham
#38. Positive, healthy, loving relationships in your twenties ... I don't know if anyone would disagree with it: I think they're the exception, not the norm. People are either playing house really aggressively because they're scared of what an uncertain time it is, or they're avoiding commitment altogether. #Quote by Lena Dunham
Commitment quotes by Jim George
#39. Every major accomplishment in a man's life requires a major level of commitment. #Quote by Jim George
Commitment quotes by Morgan Parker
#40. For you, you have a toolbox filled with words. If one doesn't work, you find another one. Or another one. Or another. You change your words like most people change mobile phones. There is no permanence, no commitment, nothing sexy about any word that you use. And that's what I am: I'm your words, Morgan. #Quote by Morgan Parker
Commitment quotes by Paul Young
#41. A man doesn't need to be flawless to be a perfect father, but the commitment to his family is a precious responsibility. #Quote by Paul Young
Commitment quotes by Dan Quayle
#42. We have a firm commitment to NATO, we are a part of NATO. We have a firm commitment to Europe. We are a part of Europe. #Quote by Dan Quayle
Commitment quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#43. With Lenin it was always a substantial commitment. I always have a certain admiration for people who are aware that somebody has to do the job. What I hate about these liberal, pseudo-left, beautiful soul academics is that they are doing what they are doing fully aware that somebody else will do the job for them. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Commitment quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#44. Marriage is a sacred-commitment. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Commitment quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#45. Our nettlesome task is to discover how to organize our strength into compelling power. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Commitment quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#46. The test before us as a people is not whether our commitments match our will and our courage; but whether we have the will and courage to match our commitments. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Commitment quotes by Robert Greene
#47. You must engrave deeply in your mind and never forget: your emotional commitment to what you are doing will be translated into your work.
If you go at your work with half a heart, it will show in the lackluster results and in the laggard way in which you reach the end.
If you are doing something primarily for money and without a real emotional commitment, it will translate into something that lacks a soul and that has no connection to you.
You may not see this, but you can be sure that the public will feel it and that they will receive your work in the same lackluster spirit it was created in.
If you are excited and obsessive in the hunt, it will show in the details. If your work comes from a place deep within, its authenticity will be communicated. #Quote by Robert Greene
Commitment quotes by Soledad O'Brien
#48. I look forward to beginning a relationship with Al Jazeera America, which has made a commitment to producing quality programming and pursuing underreported stories. #Quote by Soledad O'Brien
Commitment quotes by K.P. Yohannan
#49. We pretend with a spiritual life we don't live, a peace we don't experience and a holiness and commitment we don't possess ... We will never make any progress in becoming more like Jesus unless we permit God to cut us open, search our hearts, try us, know our thoughts and then change us from the inside. Only then can we become real according to the Word of God. #Quote by K.P. Yohannan
Commitment quotes by Peter Bart
#50. The major media companies are significantly reducing their financial commitment to the motion picture sector. #Quote by Peter Bart
Commitment quotes by T Jay Taylor
#51. Progress has a steep price. Success has an even steeper price. Your team won't be willing to pay it if you aren't willing to pay it. #Quote by T Jay Taylor
Commitment quotes by Iccho Itoh

Commitment quotes by Nicholas Sparks

Commitment quotes by Mark Batterson
#54. ...if you give all of yourself to God, you can ask and expect that God will give all of Himself to you because that's precisely what He wants to do. We have not because we ask not, and we ask not because we're not all in! #Quote by Mark Batterson
Commitment quotes by Al Gore
#55. The United States has an absolute, uncompromising commitment to Israel's security and an absolute conviction that Israel alone must decide the steps necessary to ensure that security. That is Israel's prerogative. We accept that. We endorse that. Whatever Israel decides cannot, will not, will never, not ever, alter our fundamental commitment to her security. #Quote by Al Gore
Commitment quotes by Roger Stark
#56. The winds of tribulation blow out some men's candles of commitment.(Maxwell) Our job in recovery is to protect our candle from those winds. #Quote by Roger Stark
Commitment quotes by Gautama Buddha
#57. The easiest beneficence is a smile. The simplest release is to have a vegetarian meal. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Commitment quotes by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
#58. This work of connecting our light to the world does not need to be done through a mass movement, or by millions of people ... The real work is always done by a small number of individuals. What matters is the level of participation: whether we dare to make a real commitment to the work of the soul. #Quote by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
Commitment quotes by Eric Shinseki
#59. You must love those you lead before you can be an effective leader, you can certainly command without that sense of commitment, but you cannot lead without it. And without leadership, command is a hollow experience, a vacuum often filled with mistrust and arrogance. #Quote by Eric Shinseki
Commitment quotes by Suzanne Farrell
#60. That the work involved, the willingness to take chances, the commitment, the opportunity to get on stage and make people happy, was more important than becoming famous, or even what I was dancing. #Quote by Suzanne Farrell
Commitment quotes by Vince Lombardi
#61. The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor. #Quote by Vince Lombardi
Commitment quotes by Ree Drummond
#62. Once the wedding gift was out of the way, Marlboro Man and I had to check one last item off our list before we entered the Wedding Zone: premarital counseling. It was a requirement of the Episcopal church, these one-hour sessions with the semiretired interim priest who led our church at the time. Logically, I understood the reasoning behind the practice of premarital discussions with a man of the cloth. Before a church sanctions a marriage union, it wants to ensure the couple grasps the significance and gravity of the (hopefully) eternal commitment they're making. It wants to give the couple things to think about, ideas to ponder, matters to get straight. It wants to make sure it's not sending two young lovers into what could be an avoidable domestic catastrophe. Logically, I grasped the concept.
Practically, however, it was an uncomfortable hour of sitting across from a sweet minister who meant well and asked the right questions, but who had clearly run out of juice in the zest-for-marriage department. It was emotional drudgery for me; not only did I have to rethink obvious things I'd already thought about a thousand times, but I also had to watch Marlboro Man, a quiet, shy country boy, assimilate and answer questions put to him by a minister he'd only recently met on the subject of love, romance, and commitment, no less. Though he was polite and reverent, I felt for him. These were things cowboys rarely talked about with a third party. #Quote by Ree Drummond
Commitment quotes by Sameh Elsayed
#63. Commitment to ourselves, our families, and our business is paramount to being successful. Human should be committed to rolling out great products, services and initiatives that impact those personal and professionals encounters which cross our path. #Quote by Sameh Elsayed
Commitment quotes by Tillie Cole
#64. I just figure I'll never let you outta my sight for a while."
Giggling, Lexi replied, "Careful, Carillo, that's sounding scarily like a declaration of commitment."
"Call it what you like, Pix. All I know is I like you. And I wanna see you more. I'm a Heighter from the boonies with a rap sheet--"
"And I'm an emo-anorexic virgin that can't be touched," she finished off.
"Match made in heaven, huh?" I said with a wink.
"What could possibly go wrong?" Lexi joked. #Quote by Tillie Cole
Commitment quotes by Santosh Kalwar
#65. Commitment is another name for relationship not the compromise. #Quote by Santosh Kalwar
Commitment quotes by Timothy Noah
#66. If we were to compile a list of the ways in which the United States has made both itself and the wider world a better place, then at or very near the top would be its commitment to universal education. #Quote by Timothy Noah
Commitment quotes by Rebecca Goldstein
#67. In fact, the answers that religion, as we have come to know it, provides to the question of human worth have played so dominant a role in the preceding centuries that believers often cannot conceive how non-believers can muster sufficient commitment to their own lives to get out of bed each morning, let alone the ethical wherewithal to regard others as deserving of moral regard. Once one "comes out" as an atheist, these are the inquisitions to which one is often subjected. #Quote by Rebecca Goldstein
Commitment quotes by John C. Broger
#68. Loving others in a biblical manner involves your thoughts, words, and actions and is a sign of your being a disciple of Christ. Loving others biblically is dependent on your commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ and is not dependent on people, circumstances, or your feelings. #Quote by John C. Broger
Commitment quotes by Ellen Fein
#69. Another common response is, "What if our marriage doesn't work out? I want to make sure I have some money of my own." We have a problem with that, too. If a woman is going into a marriage with thoughts of "what if it doesn't work out," how committed can she be? Her problem is not money, but commitment or love. #Quote by Ellen Fein
Commitment quotes by Chris   Hutchinson
#70. Leaders who listen, look for, and uncover other's strengths create capacity and commitment. #Quote by Chris Hutchinson
Commitment quotes by Leigh Greenwood
#71. I feel like a child. But I learn a little something every day. It's like a whole new way of living. It's a willingness to give up control. To make a commitment and have faith it'll work out. #Quote by Leigh Greenwood
Commitment quotes by Ben Bagdikian
#72. In the US, voters cast ballots for individual candidates who are not bound to any party program except rhetorically, and not always then. Some Republicans are more liberal than some Democrats, some libertarians are more radical than some socialists, and many local candidates run without any party identification. No American citizen can vote intelligently without knowledge of the ideas, political background, and commitments of each individual candidate. #Quote by Ben Bagdikian
Commitment quotes by Jonathan Silverman
#73. I would like to think that monogamy works: that once you make that vow, that decision in your life to stay committed, you actually get to keep that promise; you get to keep that commitment. I think that once you start to lose that, once you start to wonder, even emotionally - especially emotionally - your relationship is bound to get lost. #Quote by Jonathan Silverman
Commitment quotes by Fennel Hudson
#74. Walk free from the long shadows cast by small people. #Quote by Fennel Hudson
Commitment quotes by Gary Holland
#75. I wake up every morning excited. Rather than become complacent or overwhelmed, I've made a choice for life - and I can do something about it. #Quote by Gary Holland
Commitment quotes by Rob Lowe
#76. Television is populated with commitment-phobes. #Quote by Rob Lowe
Commitment quotes by Rhonda Britten
#77. Each moment is a moment of choice and your commitments keep you true to yourself, choice by choice. #Quote by Rhonda Britten
Commitment quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#78. When we attempt to find meaning in the pursuit of pleasure, the commitment to a job, or through plumbing intellectual depths, we all eventually find in each of these pursuits a dead end. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
Commitment quotes by M. Jeannine Coreil
#79. Social marketing is distinguished from other planning frameworks discussed in this book by four principles: (1) a commitment to create satisfying exchanges, (2) the use of marketing's conceptual framework to design interventions, (3) a data-based consumer orientation, and (4) segmentation of populations and careful selection of target audiences. #Quote by M. Jeannine Coreil
Commitment quotes by Tia Walker
#80. When you make a commitment to live a life of bliss, everyday is an opportunity to live the dream awake. #Quote by Tia Walker
Commitment quotes by John C. Maxwell
#81. Every day I will renew my commitment and think about the benefits that come from it. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Commitment quotes by John Berryman
#82. They say we have weak wills. Do you know about the two drunks who went to the film of The Lost Weekend. Came out staggering. "My God I'll never take another drink," said the first. "My God I'll never go to another movie." How's that for commitment? #Quote by John Berryman
Commitment quotes by Al Sharpton
#83. Dr. King used Gandhi's commitment to non-violence and to passive resistance. #Quote by Al Sharpton
Commitment quotes by Rick Warren
#84. Faithful servants never retire. You can retire from your career, but you will never retire from serving God. #Quote by Rick Warren
Commitment quotes by Simon Critchley
#85. Being anthropologically respectful of all faiths means being committed to none, and being left to drift without an anchor for one's most deeply held beliefs. To have such an anchor means being committed to a specific community. The only way Obama can overcome his sense of detachment and resolve his mother's dilemma is through a commitment to Christianity. #Quote by Simon Critchley
Commitment quotes by Sri Amma Bhagwan.
#86. Rebuilding relationship requires a lifelong discipline and commitment. #Quote by Sri Amma Bhagwan.
Commitment quotes by Dolly Alderton
#87. I hadn't ever thought that a man could love me in the same way that my friends love me; that I could love a man with the same commitment and care with which I love them. Maybe all this time I had been in a great marriage without even realising. #Quote by Dolly Alderton
Commitment quotes by Cathy Burnham Martin
#88. Unconditional love takes a strong and deliberate evolution. Unconditional love is way beyond emotional involvement. This is loving the person inside the person… loving their very soul. #Quote by Cathy Burnham Martin
Commitment quotes by Taya Kyle
#89. Before Chris passed away, I'd volunteered to coach Angel's soccer team in our local recreational league. It was a commitment I vowed to keep. I was determined to show those little girls how to succeed on the soccer "pitch," as the field is sometimes called.
I may have gone a little overboard. I mean, how many six-year-old girls have the misfortune of being coached by the wife of a SEAL?
Day One:
"We start by running!" I shouted enthusiastically. "Everyone run around the park. Let's go."
"The soccer field, Mrs. Kyle?" asked a player.
"No! The entire complex. Come on!"
I'm guessing it was maybe five or six times as far as they'd ever run before--or maybe ten or twenty--and a good deal farther than many teams with considerably older players ran. But the girls were good sports about it. We built endurance and worked on drills, and we had fun--you never knew when the coach might grab one the of the players and twirl her around enthusiastically for doing a good job.
"I'm taking goal," I'd say when shooting practice wasn't going well. "Anyone who can hurt me gets an extra piece of candy!"
I gave out a lot of candy that afternoon.
We were a young team and a little rough at first, but we got better as we went. It was fun to watch the transition many of the girls made over the length of the season--they not only got in better shape and learned to play soccer better, but they seemed more confident as well.
I will guarantee one thing: th #Quote by Taya Kyle
Commitment quotes by Pete Hegseth
#90. The historic nature of Israel's struggle for self-determination, freedom, and prosperity underscores the gravity of their circumstances and fortifies my commitment to America's responsibility as their ally. #Quote by Pete Hegseth
Commitment quotes by V.S. Pritchett
#91. Absolute Evil is not the kingdom of hell. The inhabitants of hell are ourselves, i.e., those who pay our painful, embarrassing, humanistic duties to society and who are compromised by our intellectually dubious commitment to virtue, which can be defined by the perpetual smear-word of French polemic: the bourgeois. (Bourgeois equals humanist.) This word has long been anathema in France where categories are part of the ruling notion of logique. The word cannot be readily matched in England or America. #Quote by V.S. Pritchett
Commitment quotes by Caitlin Stasey
#92. Unfortunately for the 'Tomorrow' series, I feel that for the actors that were in the first film, maybe our commitment to it is done. #Quote by Caitlin Stasey
Commitment quotes by George Osborne
#93. Many retailers have complained bitterly to me about the complexity of the Carbon Reduction Commitment. It's not a commitment; it's a tax. #Quote by George Osborne
Commitment quotes by Cesar Chavez
#94. Farm workers everywhere are angry and worried that we cannot win without violence. We have proved it before through persistence, hard work, faith and willingness to sacrifice. We can win and keep our own self-respect and build a great union that will secure the spirit of all people if we do it through a re-dedication and re-commitment to the struggle for justice through non-violence. #Quote by Cesar Chavez
Commitment quotes by Woodrow M. Kroll
#95. When it comes to God's commands, the issue is not clarity; it's commitment. #Quote by Woodrow M. Kroll
Commitment quotes by Bob Torres
#96. What, then, is the solution to this moral schizophrenia we have about animals? According to Francione, we only have two choices: we either continue to treat animals as we are now, by inflicting suf­fering even for unnecessary ends and recognizing our commitment to humane treatment as a farce, or we can recognize that animals have a morally significant interest in not being subjected to unnecessary suffering, and change how we approach conflicts of animal and hu­man interests. To do the latter, however, requires that we apply the principle of equal consideration to animals. This, Francione argues, is stunningly simple: in its most basic terms, we need to treat like cases alike. Though animals and humans are clearly different, they are alike in the sense that they both suffer and are both sentient. For this reason, we should extend the principle of equal consideration to animals. #Quote by Bob Torres
Commitment quotes by Paul Tsongas
#97. Journey with me to a true commitment to our environment. Journey with me to the serenity of leaving to our children a planet in equilibrium. #Quote by Paul Tsongas
Commitment quotes by Jonathan Mills
#98. But it is strange and I think quite wrong that conservative Protestantism, which used to repudiate the tradition of celibacy, is now assuming that celibacy is the right way of life for a large number of men as a matter of course simply because they aren't 'heterosexual' - that is, because they lack the commitment-phobic lust that prompts other men towards all attractive women regardless of marriage covenants. Similarly, Roman Catholic authority, which used to teach that a special grace was required for a life of celibacy, now teaches that celibacy is the right way of life for such men as a matter of course, as though they were incapable of giving and receiving the love and friendship that many women seek from marriage far more than anything else #Quote by Jonathan Mills
Commitment quotes by Kishore Bansal
#99. Extend your commitment to your family members. Have respect for elders and be nice to them.they are your soft pillow #Quote by Kishore Bansal
Commitment quotes by John Polkinghorne
#100. Hope is much more than a mood. It involves a commitment to action ... What we hope for should be what we are prepared to work for ... as far as that power lies in us. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Commitment quotes by Renee Wade
#101. When we want a man to do something for us, we are asking for his investment and commitment- however big/small ... Show our commitment first by doing something to add value to the relationship. Something he perceives as value. #Quote by Renee Wade
Commitment quotes by Ovid
#102. As the yellow gold is tried in fire, so the faith of friendship must be seen in adversity. #Quote by Ovid
Commitment quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#103. I once complained to my teacher Munindra-Ji about being unable to maintain a regular practice. 'When I sit at home and meditate and it feels good, I'm exhilarated, and I have faith and I know that it's the most important thing in my life,' I said. 'But as soon as it feels bad, I stop. I'm disheartened and discouraged so I just give up.' He gave me quite a wonderful piece of advice. 'Just put your body there, ' he said. 'That's what you have to do. Just put your body there. Your mind will do different things all of the time, but you just put your body there. Because that's the expression of commitment, and the rest will follow from that. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Commitment quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#104. Ian was a good man - honest, trustworthy, loyal, and of honorable character. His desire to keep his promise to Angelle and to be a respectable servant of Harrowbeth would always take president over any personal feelings, no matter how intense or gratifying they might be. He would never betray Harrowbeth. He would never cheat Derian or Angelle. He would never deceive his queen, even if in so doing he would find a love and happiness they both longed to share. His commitment to what he saw as right meant more. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Commitment quotes by Will Smith
#105. The road to success is through commitment. #Quote by Will Smith
Commitment quotes by Narendra Modi
#106. My entire childhood was steeped in poverty. For me, poverty, in a way, was the first inspiration of my life, a commitment to do something for the poor. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Commitment quotes by Richelle Mead
#107. Most do," she agreed. "Me? My principles are about love and doing it because there's meaning and commitment. A piece of paper doesn't always signal that. If there's any sin involved, it's doing it in a . . . I don't know. Cheap way. With people you don't care about. When it's meaningless. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Commitment quotes by Hilary Grossman
#108. Disappointment is devastating, even if it's something that you didn't really expect to occur. #Quote by Hilary Grossman
Commitment quotes by Paul Levinson
#109. I firmly believe that we who are alive and can think today-in the closing years of the 20th century-have a commitment to our species to make sure that the flicker of movement we have thus managed in space stays sufficiently kindled so that the people of the 21st century can build upon and extend the human abode from Earth to the cosmos beyond. #Quote by Paul Levinson
Commitment quotes by James Comey
#110. In that moment, something else occurred to me: The "leader of the free world," the self-described great business tycoon, didn't understand leadership. Ethical leaders never ask for loyalty. Those leading through fear – like a Cosa Nostra boss- require personal loyalty. Ethical leaders care deeply about those they lead, and offer them honesty and decency, commitment and their own sacrifice. They have a confidence that breeds humility. Ethical leaders know their own talent but fear their own limitations-to understand and reason, to see the world as it is and not as they wish it to be. They speak the truth and know that making wise decisions requires people to tell them the truth. And to get that truth, they create an environment of high standards and deep consideration – "love" is not too strong a word – that builds lasting bonds and makes extraordinary achievement possible. It would never occur to an ethical leader to ask for loyalty. #Quote by James Comey
Commitment quotes by Assegid Habtewold
#111. Everyday heroism is all about doing what we ought to on a daily basis and regardless of the tons of pressures that come on our way. #Quote by Assegid Habtewold
Commitment quotes by Roy Blunt
#112. I'm confident that the commitment of the co-chairs of the Ferguson Commission - along with the work of other local leaders and the Missouri General Assembly - will have a very positive impact as this community works to move forward. #Quote by Roy Blunt
Commitment quotes by Jack Kemp
#113. Democracy is not a mathematical deduction proved once and for all time. Democracy is a just faith fervently held, commitment to be tested again and again in the fiery furnace of history. #Quote by Jack Kemp
Commitment quotes by Abdul'Rauf Hashmi
#114. You express the truth of your character, your dedication to your goals, and your commitment to your relationships with the choice of your actions. #Quote by Abdul'Rauf Hashmi
Commitment quotes by Benjamin Netanyahu
#115. The Israeli government has proved over the past year its commitment to peace, both in words and deeds. By contrast, the Palestinians are posing preconditions for renewing the diplomatic process in a way they have not done over the course of 16 years. #Quote by Benjamin Netanyahu
Commitment quotes by Rob Brezsny
#116. Push hard to get better, become smarter, grow your devotion to the truth, fuel your commitment to beauty, refine your emotional intelligence, hone your dreams, negotiate with your shadow, cure your ignorance, shed your pettiness, heighten your drive to look for the best in people, and soften your heart
even as you always accept yourself for exactly who you are with all of your so-called imperfections. #Quote by Rob Brezsny
Commitment quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#117. Exotic names, robes, insignia of office, titles - the trappings of religion - confuse as much as they help. They endorse the assumption of the existence of an elite whose explicit commitment grants them implicit extraordinariness. #Quote by Stephen Batchelor
Commitment quotes by Pope John Paul II
#118. Lord Jesus, Who in the Eucharist make your dwelling among us and become our traveling companion, sustain our Christian communities so that they may be ever more open to listening and accepting your Word. May they draw from the Eucharist a renewed commitment to spreading in society, by the proclamation of your Gospel, the signs and deeds of an attentive and active charity #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Commitment quotes by L.G. Space
#119. Life is but a moment to moment heartbeat intertwined with the feelings of existence in a physical body. With each breathe we take we renew our commitment to stay in life. With each thought we think ... ... ... we decide what kind of life we will live. #Quote by L.G. Space
Commitment quotes by Timothy Noah
#120. Whenever a Kurd wants to measure the depth of some foreign leader's commitment to Kurdish autonomy, he listens for one particular word. That word is 'federal.' Anyone who will say he favors Kurdish federalism can be counted a friend of the Kurds. #Quote by Timothy Noah
Commitment quotes by Ayrton Senna
#121. With regard to performance, commitment, effort, dedication, there is no middle ground. Or you do something very well or not at all. #Quote by Ayrton Senna
Commitment quotes by Fredric Jameson
#122. We're all idealists, all materialists; and the final judgment or label is simply a matter of ideology, or, if you prefer, of political commitment. #Quote by Fredric Jameson
Commitment quotes by Swati Kumar
#123. We gradually accepted each other with our strengths and weaknesses. And now, I think, we have started to enjoy our differences more #Quote by Swati Kumar
Commitment quotes by Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya
#124. Everything that is loved, if it is not loved for His sake then this love is nothing but distress and punishment. Every action that is not performed for His sake then it is wasted and severed. Every heart that does not reach Him is wretched; veiled from achieving its success and happiness. #Quote by Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya
Commitment quotes by Anousheh Ansari
#125. Being an entrepreneur does require a lot of sacrifice of your personal time and personal hobbies and things that you enjoy. At least for the period of high growth that you experience at the beginning of a company's life cycle, you have to be ready to make a lot of time sacrifices and personal sacrifice. #Quote by Anousheh Ansari
Commitment quotes by Becca Ritchie
#126. The Cobalt Empire is the largest, known for their regal poise, intellectual prowess, and fierce commitment to one another. Each Cobalt is prideful and passionately unique but when push comes to shove.

They'll band together like an army of one. #Quote by Becca Ritchie
Commitment quotes by Kevin Nealon
#127. A novel is too much of a commitment. I tend to peruse Twitter - I check to see if I had any mentions and read the latest messages. #Quote by Kevin Nealon
Commitment quotes by Bob Seger
#128. You can't get a good crew and a good sound system, and a good light system if you do a small tour. If you want the best, those guys want a commitment of about 4 to 6 months. And I'd want the best people and the best stuff. #Quote by Bob Seger
Commitment quotes by Amit Ray
#129. A nuclear-weapons-free world is our commitment to the next generation. #Quote by Amit Ray
Commitment quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#130. Each additional day together is a gift. The end of the day means the end of hostilities, the recognition that the underlying shared values and commitment to the relationship trump the need for one last dig or self-righteous justification. #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Commitment quotes by DeForest Soaries
#131. The Election Assistance Commission represents a major, unprecedented commitment from the federal government to sustained freedom and vibrant democracy. I am humbled by the prospect of being one its charter members. #Quote by DeForest Soaries
Commitment quotes by Emily Henry
#132. From watching Shadi's love life, I knew how relationship-phobes like Gus Everett reacted when boundaries broke down, when things go from friendly to intimate, or from sexual to romantic. Guys like Gus were never the ones to pump the brakes when the emotional-entanglement train started moving, and they were always the ones to jump out and roll clear of the tracks once they realized they'd reached top speed. #Quote by Emily Henry
Commitment quotes by Toby Ord
#133. I realized that my money would do vastly more good for others than it could for me and decided to make a commitment to donating to the most effective charities I could find. Many people contacted me asking how they could do this as well, and so I set up giving what we can. #Quote by Toby Ord
Commitment quotes by Donald Johanson
#134. Commitment, belief and positive attitude are all important if you're going to be a success, whether you're in sports, in business or, as in my case, anthropology. #Quote by Donald Johanson
Commitment quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#135. Love doesn't mean anything if you're not willing to make a commitment, and you have to think not only about what you want, but about what he wants. Not just now, but in the future. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Commitment quotes by Calvin Coolidge
#136. In life there is nothing more common than talent and intelligence. What is missing is passion, persistence, commitment, and dedication. #Quote by Calvin Coolidge
Commitment quotes by James Hollis
#137. the task is not to find the object115 but to live the journey, with passion, and risk, and commitment, and danger. #Quote by James Hollis
Commitment quotes by Iman
#138. Looking good is a commitment to yourself and to others. Wigs, killer heels, Pilates, even fillers - whatever works for you, honey. #Quote by Iman
Commitment quotes by Oliver Jackson-Cohen
#139. I've been offered quite a few network shows, over the past couple of years, and always turned them down because I never wanted the commitment. The way that it works in America, you do a pilot and then you wait, and I just thought that wasn't really what I was interested in doing, in that moment. #Quote by Oliver Jackson-Cohen
Commitment quotes by Steve Buyer
#140. For those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, we are grateful that such men and women were among us. For those who continue to serve, we honor their commitment. For those who return to civilian life, we honor their service. #Quote by Steve Buyer
Commitment quotes by Theodore J. Nottingham
#141. Intentionality is actually the first step toward authentic spiritual awakening and the discovery of new horizons of understanding and wisdom. Intentionality is that baby step that opens the doors of perception. It requires an effort of sustained attention and commitment which is rare in our time, as our minds are distracted and reshaped by the rapid-fire stimulus of media through every possible venue. We are each responsible for reining in our attention, taking command of this power of focused awareness, and purposefully choosing how we will live the moments of our lives. We can waste and dissipate them, like leaking cisterns that can hold no water as the prophet Jeremiah said in ancient times, or we can center ourselves intentionally and live fully in the present moment which then opens a meaningful path into the future, even when our plans are not entirely clear. Intentionality calls forth the best of our human nature and all its potential. It all begins with a decision to live in such a way, a decision that we refuse to betray. We then become useful to the Universe and to our fellow human beings. That is how bliss enters our lives. #Quote by Theodore J. Nottingham
Commitment quotes by Nick Bantock
#142. Art becomes a spiritual process depending upon the degree of commitment that you bring to it. Every experience becomes direct food for your art. Then your art teaches you about life. #Quote by Nick Bantock
Commitment quotes by Louie Giglio
#143. In the end, our worship is more about what we do than what we say. #Quote by Louie Giglio
Commitment quotes by Howard Bloom
#144. From our best qualities come our worst. From our urge to pull together comes our tendency to tear each other apart. From our devotion to a higher good comes our propensity to the foulest atrocities. From our commitment to ideals comes our excuse to hate. Since the beginning of history, we have been blinded by evil's ability to don a selfless disguise. We have failed to see that our finest qualities often lead us to the actions we most abhor, murder, torture, genocide and war. #Quote by Howard Bloom
Commitment quotes by Avery Johnson
#145. In 1989 at Greater Saint Steven Full Gospel Church, I gave my life to Christ. That's pretty much where it all started for me. I was 23 years old at the time, right after my first year in the NBA. The pastor preached a message about being fully committed. That pretty much was me. I wasn't fully committed. I was kind of in and out all of the time. So I just wanted to make a commitment. #Quote by Avery Johnson
Commitment quotes by Stephen Covey
#146. The commitments we make to ourselves and to others, and our integrity to those commitments, is the essence and clearest manifestation of our proactivity. #Quote by Stephen Covey
Commitment quotes by Joshua Harris
#147. The joy of intimacy is the reward of commitment. #Quote by Joshua Harris
Commitment quotes by Elle Kennedy
#148. Brody's problem is that he has zero respect for the opposite sex.

"Does he really refuse to take selfies with a girl, or was he making that up to toy with me?" Sabrina asks.

"No, that's a real thing for him. He thinks that any pictures of him with a girl pressed up to his side would drive other potential hookups away. Selfies are a sign of commitment." He'd expounded on this topic at some length after instructing me to keep my Tinder account active and to not tell anyone I was having a kid.

"Ugh. He's so gross."

"I signed up for a fake Instagram account so I can troll him. When he posts something, I'll wait a day or so and then pop on to comment about how cool it is that he and my grandpa are rocking the same shirt. I've done that twice now and each time, I've seen him shoving the shirt down the apartment's trash compactor."

Sabrina throws back her head and cackles. "You do not."

"Hey, we all have to get our jollies somewhere, right? For me, it's negging Brody on Instagram and choking my baby mama in breathing classes. #Quote by Elle Kennedy
Commitment quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#149. Normal science, the activity in which most scientists inevitably spend almost all their time, is predicated on the assumption that the scientific community knows what the world is like #Quote by Thomas S. Kuhn
Commitment quotes by Richard Branson
#150. Values cannot be speedily forgotten if it is inconvenient or commercially expedient. Values have to have meaning and longevity; otherwise they are valueless. You cannot embrace innovation up to a point or only sometimes. Branding demands commitment; commitment to continual re-invention; striking cords with people to stir their emotions; and commitment to imagination. It is easy to be cynical about such things, much harder to be successful. #Quote by Richard Branson
Commitment quotes by Patrick Lencioni
#151. The five behavioral manifestations of teamwork: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability and results #Quote by Patrick Lencioni
Commitment quotes by Jim Rohn
#152. So, before you are tempted to give up or get
discouraged, remember all success is based on long term commitment, faith, discipline, attitude and a few stepping stones along the way. You might not like the stone you are on right now, but it's sure to be one of the stones that lead to great opportunities in the future. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Commitment quotes by Charles Stanley
#153. Each of us will eventually give away all our earthly possessions. How we choose to do so, however, is a reflection of our commitment to the kingdom of God. #Quote by Charles Stanley
Commitment quotes by Clifford Stoll
#154. The virtual community? The word virtual does not mean "virtue." It means "not." When I go to the store and they say: The shirt that you brought in is virtually done. It means it is not done, in the same way that the virtual community is not a community. There is no commitment there. When you log off, you are not a member of it anymore. My flesh and blood community, the sense of knowing my neighbor, knowing the guy across the street, having dinner with the people down the block, getting along with each other and making compromises, that's a genuine community with a commitment. #Quote by Clifford Stoll
Commitment quotes by Alfred-Maurice De Zayas
#155. It is the responsibility of all of us to remind governments of their commitments to settle disputes by peaceful means and to negotiate in good faith under the UN Charter, and to denounce war agitation particularly by the media. #Quote by Alfred-Maurice De Zayas
Commitment quotes by Rhonda Abrams
#156. Commitment to each other is critical. Let's make our deadlines and due dates mean something. For changes to occur, we have to embrace them over and over. Take it step by step
but keep moving forward
and a year from now, we'll find we've moved from here to there. #Quote by Rhonda Abrams
Commitment quotes by Patrick J. Buchanan
#157. Asked how this affected "detente," Sir Alec said the Soviets move when they see an opportunity. They always have. Like a knife, they push ahead when they hit butter, and back away when they hit steel...Soviet policy seeks a "maximum of confusion and a minimum of commitment. #Quote by Patrick J. Buchanan
Commitment quotes by Robert Dallek
#158. The nation should be able to remove by an orderly constitutional process any president with an unyielding commitment to failed policies and an inability to renew the country's hope. #Quote by Robert Dallek
Commitment quotes by Bethany Hamilton
#159. Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That's what little girls are made of; the heck with sugar and spice. #Quote by Bethany Hamilton
Commitment quotes by Alicia Cook
#160. Just because I don't trust you
doesn't mean I have trust issues.
Just because I won't commit to you
doesn't mean I have commitment issues.
Just because I watch what I eat
doesn't mean I have body image issues.
Just because people have left my life
doesn't mean I have abandonment issues.
Just because I yearn to grow and evolve
doesn't mean I have identity issues.

I know exactly who the hell I am.
(Track Fourteen) #Quote by Alicia Cook
Commitment quotes by Mark Nepo
#161. Keeping a commitment to listening has led me to my own growth, beyond any imagined dreams I may have had throughout the years. #Quote by Mark Nepo
Commitment quotes by Pope John Paul II
#162. Love is never something ready made, something merely 'given' to man and woman, it is always at the same time a 'task' which they are set. Love should be seen as something which in a sense never 'is' but is always only 'becoming', and what it becomes depends up on the contribution of both persons and the depth of their commitment. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Commitment quotes by Oriah Dreamer
#163. Tell me, can you see beauty? Can you let it renew your commitment to life, every day? I don't want to wait for death to be near to receive the beauty in my life. I want to be awed every day by the truth-pretty or painful-and let it open me to the beauty that surrounds me and draws me deeper and deeper into my own life. #Quote by Oriah Dreamer
Commitment quotes by Maria V. Snyder
#164. I stepped closer to him and lowered my voice. 'If you could change one thing, what would it be?'
He pulled the sheep pendant from his pocket. A question filled his eyes. I held out my hand. Riley placed it in my palm and I curled my finger around the necklace, pressing the metal into my skin. #Quote by Maria V. Snyder
Commitment quotes by Roxane Gay
#165. Social networks are more than just repositories for trivial, snap judgments; they are more than merely convenient outlets for mindless joy and outrage. They offer more than the common ground and the solace we may find during culturally significant moments. Social networks also provide us with something of a flawed but necessary conscience, a constant reminder that commitment, compassion, and advocacy neither can nor ever should be finite. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Commitment quotes by Lily Harlem
#166. Lewis: "It's been a tough set of matches, my focus and commitment hasn't wavered, but even so, something amazing has happened. A kind, intelligent beautiful woman has fallen in love with me. (stepping into the crowd, and reporters move out of the way) Hi honey."
Nicky: "Hi."
Lewis: "I'm in love with you, Nicky. And knowing you feel the same made this the best day of my life. #Quote by Lily Harlem
Commitment quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#167. I view the major features of my own odyssey as a set of mostly fortunate contingencies. I was not destined by inherited mentality or family tradition to become a paleontologist. I can locate no tradition for scientific or intellectual careers anywhere on either side of my eastern European Jewish background. [ ... ] I view my serious and lifelong commitment to baseball in entirely the same manner: purely as a contingent circumstance of numerous, albeit not entirely capricious, accidents. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Commitment quotes by Hilary Mantel
#168. Fear of commitment lies behind the fear of writing. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Commitment quotes by A.C. Davis
#169. One cannot go over Niagara Falls in a barrel only slightly. #Quote by A.C. Davis
Commitment quotes by Martin Freeman
#170. Organised religion, organised anything, requires commitment and requires an engagement with something. A lot of the time, we don't want to commit. #Quote by Martin Freeman
Commitment quotes by Thomas A. Harris
#171. The ritual is designed to get a group of people through the hour without having to get close to anyone. They may, but they don't have to. It is more comfortable to go to a High Church Mass than to attend a revival service where one may be asked, "Are you saved, brother?" Sexual relations are less awkward in the dark for people for whom physical intimacy has no involvement at the level of personality. There is less chance for involvement in throwing a cocktail party than in having a dinner for six. There is little commitment, therefore little fulfillment. Rituals, like withdrawal, can keep us apart. An #Quote by Thomas A. Harris
Commitment quotes by Wendy Beckett
#172. Although we cannot command it, we choose joy, making a deliberate commitment to happiness (essentially another word for peace). #Quote by Wendy Beckett
Commitment quotes by Robert Dallek
#173. In his State of the Union speech in January 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt declared America's commitment to Four Freedoms in the struggle against Nazi totalitarianism. Among them was the freedom from fear. #Quote by Robert Dallek
Commitment quotes by Anne Campbell
#174. Love means to commit yourself without guarantee. #Quote by Anne Campbell

Commitment quotes by Tina Brown
#176. It's one of the biggest fibs going that American newspapers are now being forced to give up their commitment to investigative reporting. Most of them gave up long ago as their greedy managements squeezed every cent out of the bottom line and turned their newsrooms into eunuchs. #Quote by Tina Brown
Commitment quotes by Garry Shandling
#177. Which is, I'm an optimist that two people can be together to work out their conflicts. And that commitment, I think, might be what love is, because they both grow from their relationship. #Quote by Garry Shandling
Commitment quotes by Pravin Agarwal
#178. Marriage is a commitment that requires effort and communication. Sometimes, it also requires a little creativity. Ego is the only requirement to destroy any relationship. So be the bigger person skip the 'E' and let it 'Go'. #Quote by Pravin Agarwal
Commitment quotes by Mark Batterson
#179. When we do what's right, regardless of circumstances or consequences, we set the table for God to turn the tables. All we need to do is stand up, step in, or step out. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Commitment quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#180. Never give up.
This applies to more than goals and dreams, it is a maxim for basic daily struggles. It shapes one's life, including the will to continue to live. It supports love and committed relationships; it bolsters hope, faith, and charity; it is power in every area of existence. Never give up on anything or anyone of any worth, especially yourself. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Commitment quotes by Ellen Bass
#181. Dead Butterfly
By Ellen Bass
For months my daughter carried
a dead monarch in a quart mason jar.
To and from school in her backpack,
to her only friend's house. At the dinner table
it sat like a guest alongside the pot roast.
She took it to bed, propped by her pillow.
Was it the year her brother was born?
Was this her own too-fragile baby
that had lived - so briefly - in its glassed world?
Or the year she refused to go to her father's house?
Was this the holding-her-breath girl she became there?
This plump child in her rolled-down socks
I sometimes wanted to haul back inside me
and carry safe again. What was her fierce
commitment? I never understood.
We just lived with the dead winged thing
as part of her, as part of us,
weightless in its heavy jar. #Quote by Ellen Bass
Commitment quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#182. You make your own kinds of mistakes, and I'm sure you'll have your share of regrets in life. But commitment was never your problem, sweetie. You have a better chance of making this work than most forty-year-olds I know. My little middle-aged child. Luckily, you seem to have found another old soul. #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Commitment quotes by Maurice Merleau Ponty
#183. Faith--in the sense of an unreserved commitment which is never completely justified-enters the picture as soon as we leave the realm of pure geometrical ideas and have to deal
with the existing world. Each of our perceptions is an act of faith in
that it affirms more than we strictly know, since objects are inexhaustibJe and our information limited. #Quote by Maurice Merleau Ponty
Commitment quotes by Tarryn Fisher
#184. I am not just reading a book; I am invested in the book. If George, Denver, and Stephanie Brown don't get their shit together, I am never going to read another book again. Kit enjoys my commitment to their story, but we don't talk about it in front of Della. Della was a part of the Twilight mania, and after reading one chapter of Kit's untitled manuscript she asked if there were werewolves or vampires in the story. Kit shut her down real fast after that. #Quote by Tarryn Fisher
Commitment quotes by Kasie West
#185. Oh, also, if Mr. Ortega catches me writing you this letter, I am committed to shoving it in my mouth and swallowing. I hope I can count on the same commitment from you. #Quote by Kasie West
Commitment quotes by Rick Warren
#186. The only way you can serve God is by serving other people. #Quote by Rick Warren
Commitment quotes by Hannah Black
#187. Monogamous romantic commitment, like infallible lifelong attraction to only men or only women, is surely a minority tendency expediently elevated to a general social principle #Quote by Hannah Black
Commitment quotes by Agatha Christie
#188. There was a moment when I changed from an amateur to a professional. I assumed the burden of a profession, which is to write even when you don't want to, don't much like what you're writing, and aren't writing particularly well. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Commitment quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#189. How seriously would we take person who said, "I have faith in Adolf Hitler, or in John Dilinger. I can't explain why they did the things they did, but I can't believe they would have done them without a good reason." Yet people try to justify the deaths and tragedies God inflicts on innocent victims with almost these same words.
Furthermore, my religious commitment to the supreme value of an individual life makes it hard for me to accept an answer that is not scandalized by an innocent person's pain, that condones human pain because it supposedly contributes to an overall work of esthetic value. If a human artist or employer made children suffer so that something immensely impressive or valuable could come to pass, we would put him in prison. Why then should we excuse God for causing such undeserved pain, no matter how wonderful the ultimate result may be? #Quote by Harold S. Kushner
Commitment quotes by John Dye
#190. Love and Trust God, It's a life time commitment!!! #Quote by John Dye
Commitment quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#191. They say it's impossible.
I refuse to believe it.
The journey may be difficult and the desired end unlikely. My patience and commitment may be tested by something that won't happen overnight. It may be that I veer off the path or quit before reaching my goal, but that doesn't mean it is impossible. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Commitment quotes by William J. Clinton
#192. The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, which highlights customer satisfaction, workforce empowerment, and increased productivity, has come to symbolize America's commitment to excellence. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Commitment quotes by Teddy Atlas
#193. Don't you understand anything about commitment, about being a pro, about sticking with what you say you wanna be? You don't just say it when you feel good. You don't just say it when you're not tired. You don't do it just when it's not sunny. You do it every day of your life. You do it when it hurts to do it, when it's the last thing in the world you wanna' do, when there are a million reasons not to do it. You do it because you're a professional. #Quote by Teddy Atlas
Commitment quotes by Dave Barry
#194. 'I'm sorry,' guys are always telling women, 'but I'm just not ready to make a commitment.' Guys are in a permanent state of nonreadiness. If guys were turkey breasts, you could put them in a 350-degree oven on July Fourth, and they still wouldn't be done in time for Thanksgiving. #Quote by Dave Barry
Commitment quotes by Caroline Myss
#195. Mystics knew how to channel grace through prayer and they knew the power of that. They knew how to receive guidance through reflection and contemplation; they knew how to share the gift of illumination with each other. These are great gifts of life and profound grace that we are capable of providing for each other and the world. This is what it means to be a mystic without a monastery. You make a commitment to your own interior illumination and through that discover the "sacred" part of your "contract" and the true meaning of your highest potential. #Quote by Caroline Myss
Commitment quotes by Lanford Wilson
#196. Lots of my friends and family belong to churches, and some of them are part of the so-called Christian Right. In this preacher, I wanted to show a good man struggling to reconcile his commitment to the community with the political agenda of his church. He does not see that as a dilemma, but I do. #Quote by Lanford Wilson
Commitment quotes by Jon Katzenbach
#197. What sets apart high-performance teams, however, is the degree of commitment, particularly how deeply committed the members are to one another. #Quote by Jon Katzenbach
Commitment quotes by Peter Singer
#198. Diamonds have an image of purity and light. They are given as a pledge of love and worn as a symbol of commitment. #Quote by Peter Singer
Commitment quotes by Pat Barker
#199. Ghosts everywhere. Even the living were only ghosts in the making. You learned to ration your commitment to them. This moment in this tent already had the quality of remembered experience. Or perhaps he was simply getting old. But then, after all, in trench time he was old. A generation lasted six months, less than that on the Somme, barely twelve weeks. #Quote by Pat Barker
Commitment quotes by Denis Waitley
#200. You must stick to your conviction, but be ready to abandon your assumptions. #Quote by Denis Waitley
