Tasks quotes by Peter Thiel
#5. in order to be happy, every individual needs to have goals whose attainment requires effort.

Kaczynski argued that modern people are depressed because all the world's hard problems have already been solved.

What you can do, even a child can do; what you can't do, even Einstein couldn't have done. #Quote by Peter Thiel
Tasks quotes by Ralph Fiennes

Tasks quotes by James M. Kouzes
#14. Leaders strengthen credibility by demonstrating that they are not in it for themselves, instead they have the interests of the institution, department, or team and its constituents at heart.

Kouzes
Tasks quotes by Alice Boyes
#15. If handing over tasks to others activates your difficulties in tolerating uncertainty, talk to yourself kindly about your feelings. Acknowledge that keeping a tight grip on the reins in every aspect of your life helps you feel secure but also acknowledge when that's wearing you out. Notice if being very controlling is one of those behavioral patterns that helps you feel less anxious in the short term but makes you feel more anxious in the long term. Being excessively controlling is one of those "the more you do it, the more you need to do it" anxiety patterns. #Quote by Alice Boyes
Tasks quotes by Marcia Conner

Tasks quotes by Jessica Jackley
#17. As all entrepreneurs know, you live and die by your ability to prioritize. You must focus on the most important, mission-critical tasks each day and night, and then share, delegate, delay or skip the rest. #Quote by Jessica Jackley
Tasks quotes by John Perry
#18. Task triage is the habit of making a realistic assessment of what degree of perfection is required for a task at the point of accepting it, so one doesn't need to rely on one's habit of procrastinating to lower the bar. #Quote by John Perry
Tasks quotes by Patti Smith
#19. Through it all we held fast to the concept of the clock with no hands. Tasks were completed, sump pumps manned, sandbags piled, trees planted, shirts ironed, hems stitched, and yet we reserved the right to ignore the hands that kept on turning. #Quote by Patti Smith
Tasks quotes by Paul David Tripp
#20. Even the most regular, seemingly unimportant tasks of my life must be shaped and directed by a heartfelt desire for the glory of God. #Quote by Paul David Tripp
Tasks quotes by Theodore Roosevelt

Tasks quotes by Jeff Davidson
#24. It's not that you can't get things done with the use of a cell phone; indeed you can get a lot of things done. However, the nature of what you get done is highly skewed. Just as the man with only a hammer sees everything as nails, the incessant cell phone user accomplishes a variety of tasks, understandably enough, that accrue directly to having a cell phone. #Quote by Jeff Davidson
Tasks quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#25. Our nettlesome task is to discover how to organize our strength into compelling power. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Tasks quotes by Donald Rumsfeld

#27. I never hanker after the past - I prefer to devote myself to new tasks. #Quote by Steffi Graf
Tasks quotes by Lysa TerKeurst
#28. This life is not about me. It's about joining hands with Jesus to fulfill whatever tasks He sets before me and to share His love with all He brings my way. #Quote by Lysa TerKeurst
Tasks quotes by Kevin Leman
#29. Men's brains may be bigger, but women's contain more brain cells. Also, male and female brains work differently. When men and women perform identical tasks, different areas of their brains light up in response. In addition, females use both hemispheres, while male brain activity is restricted to one side. (21) #Quote by Kevin Leman
Tasks quotes by Seneca
#30. Why do we complain of Nature? She has shown herself kindly; life, if you know how to use it, is long. But one man is possessed by an avarice that is insatiable, another by a toilsome devotion to tasks that are useless; one man is besotted with wine, another is paralyzed by sloth; one man is exhausted by an ambition that always hangs upon the decision of others, another, driven on by the greed of the trader, is led over all lands and all seas by the hope of gain; some are tormented by a passion for war and are always either bent upon inflicting danger upon others or concerned about their own; some there are who are worn out by voluntary servitude in a thankless attendance upon the great; many are kept busy either in the pursuit of other men's fortune or in complaining of their own; many, following no fixed aim, shifting and inconstant and dissatisfied, are plunged by their fickleness into plans that are ever new; some have no fixed principle by which to direct their course, but Fate takes them unawares while they loll and yawn - so surely does it happen that I cannot doubt the truth of that utterance which the greatest of poets delivered with all the seeming of an oracle: "The part of life we really live is small."5 For all the rest of existence is not life, but merely time. Vices beset us and surround us on every side, and they do not permit us to rise anew and lift up our eyes for the discernment of truth, but they keep us down when once they have overwhelmed us and we are c #Quote by Seneca
Tasks quotes by Michael Lewis
#31. In the two decades after I left, I waited for the end of Wall Street as I had known it. The outrageous bonuses, the endless parade of rogue traders, the scandal that sank Drexel Burnham, the scandal that destroyed John Gutfreund and finished off Salomon Brothers, the crisis following the collapse of my old boss John Meriwether's Long-Term Capital Management, the Internet bubble: Over and over again, the financial system was, in some narrow way, discredited. Yet the big Wall Street banks at the center of it just kept on growing, along with the sums of money that they doled out to twenty-six-year-olds to perform tasks of no obvious social utility. The rebellion by American youth against the money culture never happened. Why bother to overturn your parents' world when you can buy it and sell off the pieces? #Quote by Michael Lewis
Tasks quotes by John Piper
#32. Tasks don't have to be high-impact to be worthy of high effort. Most things we do in any given day are relatively low impact. The cumulative impact of thousands of low-impact test is huge. These tasks can be transposed into worship. #Quote by John Piper
Tasks quotes by Jens Jensen
#33. We all need the living green or we'll shrivel up inside. To make the modern city livable is the task of our times. #Quote by Jens Jensen
Tasks quotes by Dmitry Medvedev
#34. I always say that modernization is not an abstract thing; it's a very specific task. #Quote by Dmitry Medvedev
Tasks quotes by Benjamin B. Ferencz
#35. Nuremberg taught me that creating a world of tolerance and compassion would be a long and arduous task. And I also learned that if we did not devote ourselves to developing effective world law, the same cruel mentality that made the Holocaust possible might one day destroy the entire human race. #Quote by Benjamin B. Ferencz
Tasks quotes by Harvey Pekar
#36. He wasn't a man, but a tape recorder, repeating catch phrases and old slogans without any thought to the concepts behind them, a dog stuck in the training of his youth and faithfully executing his tasks long after his master had moved on. #Quote by Harvey Pekar
Tasks quotes by Robin Hobb
#37. Why can't people love one another and still remain free?" Althea demanded suddenly.
Amber paused to rub her eyes, then tug thoughtfully at her earring. "One can love that way," she conceded regretfully. "But the price on that kind of love may be the highest of all." She strung her words together as carefully as she strung her beads. "To love another person like that, you have to admit that his life is as important as yours. Harder still, you have to admit to yourself that perhaps he has needs you cannot fill, and that you have tasks that will take you far away from him. It costs loneliness and longing and doubt and ... #Quote by Robin Hobb
Tasks quotes by Haruki Murakami
#38. But I was not, in the true sense of the word, alive. I simply performed the mundane tasks that were handed to me, one after another #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Tasks quotes by Martha Beck

Tasks quotes by Winston S. Churchill

Tasks quotes by Harry S. Truman
#42. We were well aware that the end of the fighting would not automatically settle the problems arising out of the war. The establishment of peace after the fighting is over has always been a
difficult task. #Quote by Harry S. Truman
Tasks quotes by Julian Huxley
#43. There are thus two tasks for the Mass Media division of Unesco, the one general, the other special. The special one is to enlist the press and the radio and the cinema to the fullest extent in the service of formal and adult education, of science and learning, of art and culture. The general one is to see that these agencies are used both to contribute to mutual comprehension between different nations and cultures, and also to promote the growth of a common outlook shared by all nations and cultures. #Quote by Julian Huxley
Tasks quotes by Viacheslav Platonov
#44. In my opinion the teaching of volleyball technique, ... , must always be correlated with tactical tasks. #Quote by Viacheslav Platonov
Tasks quotes by Zygmunt Bauman
#45. The task for sociology is to come to the help of the individual. We have to be in service of freedom. It is something we have lost sight of. #Quote by Zygmunt Bauman
Tasks quotes by M. Scott Peck
#46. It is our task-our essential, central, crucial task-to transform ourselves from mere social creatures into community creatures. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Tasks quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#47. Emancipation of belief is the most formidable of the tasks of reform and the one on which all else depends. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Tasks quotes by Bronislaw Malinowski
#48. Magic enables man to carry out with confidence his important tasks, to maintain his poise and his mental integrity in fits of anger, in the throes of hate, of unrequited love, of despair and anxiety. The function of magic is to ritualize man's optimism, to enhance his faith in the victory of hope over fear. Magic expresses the greater value for man of confidence over doubt, of steadfastness over vacillation, of optimism over pessimism. #Quote by Bronislaw Malinowski
Tasks quotes by George Sand
#49. I know that I have found fulfillment. I have an object in life, a task ... a passion. #Quote by George Sand
Tasks quotes by Troy Hicks
#50. I argue here and throughout this book that if we engage students in real writing tasks and we use technology in such a way that it complements their innate need to find purposes and audiences for their work, we can have them engaged in a digital writing process that focuses first on the writer, then on the writing, and lastly on the technology (8). #Quote by Troy Hicks
Tasks quotes by J.K. Rowling
#51. Albus: First question. What do you know about the Triwizard tournament?
Scorpius(happy): Ooooh, a quiz! Three schools pick three champions to compete in three tasks for one cup. What's that got to do with anything?
Albus: You really are an enormous geek, you know that?
Scorpius: Ya-huh. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Tasks quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#52. The main task for us all is that of a new evangelization aimed at helping younger generations to rediscover the true face of God, who is Love. To you young people, who are in search of a firm hope, I address the very words that Saint Paul wrote to the persecuted Christians in Rome at that time: "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit" (Rom 15:13). #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Tasks quotes by Kathe Kollwitz
#53. It seems to me nowadays that the most important task for someone who is aging is to spread love and warmth whenever possible. #Quote by Kathe Kollwitz
Tasks quotes by Jim Highsmith
#54. a good set of questions to determine whether a project leader - or even an individual contributor - has an agile mindset might be, "In what specific ways and with what practices do you focus on value first and constraints last?" "In what specific ways and with what practices do you manage teams rather than tasks?" "In what specific ways and with what practices do you adapt to change rather than conform to plans?" Try these out in your organization to get a feel for your agile maturity. #Quote by Jim Highsmith
Tasks quotes by Donald A. Norman
#55. Simplicity design axiom: The complexity of the information appliance is that of the task, not the tool. The technology is invisible. #Quote by Donald A. Norman
Tasks quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#56. The Church's mission is not political in nature. Her task is to open the world to the religious sense by proclaiming Christ. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Tasks quotes by Peter Hain
#57. Our task is nothing less than the creation of a new constitutional order for a new united Europe. #Quote by Peter Hain
Tasks quotes by Francois Hollande
#58. My dear citizens, fellow citizens, French people, this 6th of May, have just chosen change by bringing me the presidency of the French republic. I feel the honor, which has been given to me and the task, the important task faced beyond - in front of you to serve my country. #Quote by Francois Hollande
Tasks quotes by Dewitt Jones
#59. I can do what I love or I can love what I do. Learn to love the task in front of you. #Quote by Dewitt Jones
Tasks quotes by Jeffrey R. Holland
#60. My concern is that you will face some delays and disappointments at this formative time in your life and feel that no one else in the history of mankind has ever had your problems or faced those difficulties. And when some of those challenges come, you will have the temptation common to us all to say, "This task is too hard. The burden is too heavy. The path is too long." And so you decide to quit, simply to give up. Now to terminate certain kinds of tasks is not only acceptable but often very wise. If you are, for example, a flagpole sitter then I say, "Come on down." But in life's most crucial and telling tasks, my plea is to stick with it, to persevere, to hang in and hang on, and to reap your reward. #Quote by Jeffrey R. Holland
Tasks quotes by Joan D. Chittister
#61. Getting to know ourselves and learning to control ourselves are the two great tasks of life. Don't make up strange and exotic 'penances.' Simply say no to yourself once a day, and you will be on the road to sanctity for the rest of your life. #Quote by Joan D. Chittister
Tasks quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#62. Conservation of our resources is the fundamental question before this nation, and that our first and greatest task is to set our house in order and begin to live within our means. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Tasks quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#63. It's interesting that the woman who wrote that treatise – the one you all practically worship in Alethkar –decided that all of the feminine tasks involve sitting around having fun while all the masculine ones involve finding someone to stick a spear in you. Telling, eh? #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Tasks quotes by L. Ron Hubbard
#64. Any of us probably could do more important things than we are doing. Any of us could use some changes in our tasks. But none of us - and still stay alive and sane - could do without something to do. #Quote by L. Ron Hubbard
Tasks quotes by Suzanne Finnamore
#65. I know my vision is impaired and cannot be trusted with even the simplest tasks, much less dating. Not that I´ve come within talon distance of a man. #Quote by Suzanne Finnamore
Tasks quotes by Guy Finley
#66. We need to see, and agree that what we seek already lives within us, and we within it. Now we know our one great task: watch for whatever promises us freedom, and then quietly, consciously refuse to see ourselves through the eyes of what we know is incomplete. Then we live wholeness itself, instead of spending our lives looking for it. #Quote by Guy Finley
Tasks quotes by Tad Williams
#67. If you are going to without trust. men tasks to do, then once they have proved themselves, you should let them get on without you standing over them. There is no point in giving responsibility wifh #Quote by Tad Williams

Tasks quotes by Samuel Johnson
#69. As he that lives longest lives but a little while, every man may be certain that he has no time to waste. The duties of life are commensurate to its duration; and every day brings its task, which, if neglected, is doubled on the morrow. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Tasks quotes by Andrew Miller
#70. Artists could never, would never, harm anybody. They're too busy painting. Same with ad drunks. They might be a bit useless at functional tasks, they may break things (small objects, precious objects, door handles, car accessories, and such), but they're too pissed to get seriously involved in anything. #Quote by Andrew Miller
Tasks quotes by Parker Palmer
#71. When I was depressed, nobody expected anything of me, nor did I expect anything of myself. I was exempt from life's demands and risks. But if I were to find new life, who knows what daunting tasks I might be required to take on? #Quote by Parker Palmer

Tasks quotes by Cynthia Hand
#75. He leaned in. This was it. His first kiss. His first k -
"BOY!" yelled a distant voice. "WHERE ARE YOU, BOY!"
Grace drew back abruptly. "Your granny is calling you."
"She can wait," he said.
"IT'S TIME FOR YOUR MEDICINE!" Gran called out.
Gracie jumped to her feet. "You should go in."
"BOY!"
She hastily brushed off her trousers. "Besides, I just remembered some chores your sister wanted me to get done. Some very important chores. Full of ... tasks."
"Tasks?" Edward said, doubtful.
"Yes, tasks. Lots of them."
"Gracie," he started as she backed away from him. "Wait."
"GET IN HERE, BOY!"
He watched helplessly as Gracie set off toward the keep, almost at a run.
"BOY!"
At the moment we should confess that Edward briefly considered murdering his dear sweet grandmother. And he might have gotten away with it too, on account of the rest of the world thinking the old lady was already dead. #Quote by Cynthia Hand
Tasks quotes by John George Nicolay
#76. The death of Mrs. Lincoln was a serious loss to her husband and children. Abraham's sister Sarah was only eleven years old, and the tasks and cares of the little household were altogether too heavy for her years and experience. #Quote by John George Nicolay
Tasks quotes by Sathya Sai Baba
#77. Willing is superfluous for Me. For grace is ever available to devotees who have steady love and faith. Since I move freely with them, talking and singing, even intellectuals are unable to grasp My Truth, My power, My glory or My real task as Avatar. #Quote by Sathya Sai Baba
Tasks quotes by Kent Hovind
#78. Did you know that the black suited organization that attacked the Koresh cult was a United Nations task force? #Quote by Kent Hovind
Tasks quotes by Brian Tracy
#79. The fact is that you can't do everything that you have to do. You have to procrastinate on something. Therefore, procrastinate on small tasks. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Tasks quotes by Roald Dahl
#80. It is preferable to incur a mild punishment than to perform an onerous task. #Quote by Roald Dahl
Tasks quotes by Herbert Hoover
#81. More than ten million women march to work every morning side by side with the men. Steadily the importance of women is gaining notonly in the routine tasks of industry but in executive responsibility. I include also the woman who stays at home as the guardian of the welfare of the family. She is a partner in the job and wages. Women constitute a part of our industrial achievement. #Quote by Herbert Hoover
Tasks quotes by Harold Holzer
#82. While attending to the customary tasks of assembling a cabinet, rewarding political loyalists with federal appointments, and drafting an inaugural address alone - he employed no speechwriters - Lincoln was uniquely forced to confront the collapse of the country itself, with no power to prevent its disintegration. Bound to loyalty to the Republican party platform on which he had run and won, he could yield little to the majority that had in fact voted against him. #Quote by Harold Holzer
Tasks quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#83. Politics are not the task of a Christian. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Tasks quotes by Kevin Leman
#84. Men tend to focus on the present and the future, and they like to present possibilities wether they're realistic or not. They are often fast moving and risk takers. Contrast that with women, who tend to focus on the present and the past due to their relational abilities, and since they use both sides of their brain, they tend to think more realistically and in detail about tasks that need to be done. As a result, they are usually more cautious and less risk taking. Put the two together and it's easy to see why you and your son will sometimes disagree or even clash. (22) #Quote by Kevin Leman
Tasks quotes by Joan Crawford
#85. Mr. Cukor is a hard task-master, a fine director and he took me over the coals giving me the roughest time I have ever had. And I am eternally grateful. #Quote by Joan Crawford
Tasks quotes by Anonymous
#86. Thall identified the things he loves most about his work - developing products and creating growth strategies - and he finds ways to outsource other tasks. The brand currently has 14 staff members working in San Diego who specialize in things like inventory management and human resources, which are aspects of the business Thall did not feel equipped to handle himself. "It's easy for a passion project to quickly turn into just another job if you are forced to perform tasks you don't enjoy every day," Thall says. #Quote by Anonymous
Tasks quotes by Misha Collins
#87. I think participating in GISHWHES is a crash course in facing our fears: people go to crowded shopping malls wearing scuba gear, order from a fast food restaurant in Shakespearean verse or jump out of airplanes among many other tasks. #Quote by Misha Collins
Tasks quotes by Richie Norton
#88. I recommend that you look at the tasks you are doing throughout your day and ask yourself if these things are bringing you closer to your goals? #Quote by Richie Norton
Tasks quotes by Abraham Joshua Heschel
#89. The time for the kingdom may be far off, but the task is plain: to retain our share in God in spite of peril and contempt. There is a war to wage against the vulgar, the glorification of the absurd, a war that is incessant, universal. Loyal to the presence of the ultimate in the common, we may be able to make it clear that man is more than man, that in doing the finite he may perceive the infinite . #Quote by Abraham Joshua Heschel
Tasks quotes by Jeannie Davide-Rivera
#90. Focusing on and sustaining life activities...jobs, budgets housekeeping etc. takes from me. It is an exhausting struggle; a desperate attempt to tread water while drowning.
Life drains my well. Special interests fill it back up. I need that time, I need that filling, that relaxing, that decompressing, in order to accomplish other tasks in my life. #Quote by Jeannie Davide-Rivera
Tasks quotes by Peter Drucker
#91. Change is the norm; unless an organization sees that its task is to lead change, that organization will not survive. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Tasks quotes by Paulo Coelho
#92. It is Easy to be a Hater. Go for the difficult Task: be a Lover! #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Tasks quotes by Alfie Kohn
#93. Rewards usually improve performance only at extremely simple - indeed, mindless - tasks, and even then they improve only quantitative performance. #Quote by Alfie Kohn
Tasks quotes by Ronald Reagan
#94. Wouldn't it be better for the human spirit and for the soul of this nation to encourage people to accept more responsibility to care for each other rather than leaving those tasks to paid bureaucrats. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Tasks quotes by Zheng Bijian
#95. In addition to achieving outside the industry, agriculture, national defense science and technology modernization, we are faced with the important task of system modernization. #Quote by Zheng Bijian
Tasks quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#96. All sciences are now under the obligation to prepare the ground for the future task of the philosopher, which is to solve the problem of value, to determine the true hierarchy of values. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Tasks quotes by Cyril Connolly
#97. The true function of a writer is to produce a masterpiece and no other task is of any consequence. #Quote by Cyril Connolly
Tasks quotes by Vivian Gornick
#98. Women occupy, in great masses, the 'household tasks' of industry. They are nurses but not doctors, secretaries but not executives, researchers but not writers, workers but not managers, bookkeepers but not promoters. #Quote by Vivian Gornick
Tasks quotes by Pope Francis
#99. One form of prayer moves us particularly to take up the task of evangelization and to seek the good of others: it is the prayer of intercession. Let us peer for a moment into the heart of Saint Paul, to see what his prayer was like. It was full of people: " ... I constantly pray with you in every one of my prayers for all of you ... because I hold you in my heart" (Phil 1:4, 7). Here we see that intercessory prayer does not divert us from true contemplation, since authentic contemplation always has a place for others. #Quote by Pope Francis
Tasks quotes by Samantha Larson
#100. When a task seems too daunting to even approach, break it up into little bits. #Quote by Samantha Larson
Tasks quotes by John Hoyt
#101. For too long we have occupied ourselves with responding to the consequences of cruelty and abuse and have neglected the important task of building up an ethical system in which justice for animals is regarded as the norm rather than the exception. Our only hope is to put our focus on the education of the young. #Quote by John Hoyt
Tasks quotes by William Ellery Channing
#102. The mind never puts forth greater power over itself when in great trials, it yields up calmly its desires, affections, and interests in God. There are seasons when to be still demands immeasurably higher strength than to act. Composure is often the highest result of power. Do you think it demands no power to calm the stormy elements of passion, to moderate the vehemence of desire, to throw off the load of dejection, to suppress every repining thought when the dearest hopes are withered, and to turn the wounded spirit from dangerous reveries and wasting grief, to the quiet discharge of ordinary duties? Is there no power put forth, when a {woman}, stripped of {her} property, of the fruits of a life's labors, quells discontent and gloomy forebodings, and serenely and patiently returns to the tasks which Providence assigns? #Quote by William Ellery Channing
Tasks quotes by Lynn Crosbie
#103. Then my outrage wandered away: never do junk if you need to finish thoughts, sentences, or simple tasks. #Quote by Lynn Crosbie
Tasks quotes by Robert J. Crane
#104. Sometimes life is not about desire, or belief. Sometimes it's about crossing the void between big moments, about putting one foot before the other as you navigate in a blighted heart. The only thing I can do for now is to keep going, to hold to my duty of fighting the battles placed before me, seeing to the tasks appointed me. You want me to believe? You want me to hope? This is hardly the first time in my life that I've been hollowed out, not the first by far that I've lost hope. In those moments, I've learned to keep walking,to keep going, to hold not to hope, but to whatever I can. I won't be the same man I was before, but I won't be like this forever, either, I doubt. The thought that I would ... doesn't bear consideration. #Quote by Robert J. Crane
Tasks quotes by Megan Miranda
#105. There were tiny moments, like this, when the grief came on strong out of nowhere. It was sneaky, and tricky, and you couldn't see it coming until it was already there. It came with the mundane, simple tasks: My mother would never be hanging pink streamers at my shower. I would never lean over to someone and conspiratorially whisper, My mother is crazy. She would never become a grandmother. Laura #Quote by Megan Miranda
Tasks quotes by Rodney Brooks
#106. So robots are good at very simple things like cleaning the floor, like doing a repetitive task. Our robots have a little tiny bit of common sense. Our robots know that if they've got something in their hand and they drop it, it's gone. They shouldn't go and try and put it down. #Quote by Rodney Brooks
Tasks quotes by Aristotle.
#107. It is also in the interests of the tyrant to make his subjects poor ... the people are so occupied with their daily tasks that they have no time for plotting. #Quote by Aristotle.
Tasks quotes by Linda M. Godwin
#108. Although I know a lot of the previous shuttle flights, in theory, had their tasks laid out; but there were still some changes that came along for them. #Quote by Linda M. Godwin
Tasks quotes by Peter Forsyth
#109. Prayer is, paradoxically, both a gift and a conquest, a grace and a duty. Does that not mean, is it not a special case of the truth, that all duty is a gift, every call on us a blessing, and that the task we often find a burden is really a boon? #Quote by Peter Forsyth
Tasks quotes by Priscilla Shirer
#110. Most of our days are filled with routine duties required for life to continue with any sort of sanity. But if we take the time look closely, we might discover that God is using these normal activities to prepare us for future tasks, each duty pointing to His blessing in our lives. #Quote by Priscilla Shirer
Tasks quotes by Scott Ginsberg
#111. Procrastination isn't task management, it's feeling management. #Quote by Scott Ginsberg
Tasks quotes by Howard W. Hunter
#112. To do one's best in the face of the commonplace struggles of life, and possibly in the face of failures, and to continue to endure and persevere with the ongoing difficulties of life - when those struggles and tasks contribute to the progress and happiness of others and the eternal salvation of one's self - this is true greatness. #Quote by Howard W. Hunter
Tasks quotes by Marsha Blackburn
#113. One of the most important tasks of the United States House of Representatives is to pass a budget resolution. #Quote by Marsha Blackburn
Tasks quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#114. If anything is evident about people who manage money, it is that the task attracts a very low level of talent, one that is protected in its highly imperfect profession by the mystery that is thought to enfold the subject of economics in general and of money in particular. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Tasks quotes by Elizabeth Alexander
#115. I have not yet learned to use our television DVR. One of the points of marriage is that you split labor. In the olden days that meant one hunted and one gathered; now it means one knows where the tea-towels are kept and the other knows how to program the DVR, for why should we both have to know? #Quote by Elizabeth Alexander
Tasks quotes by B.F. Skinner
#116. Even the mundane task of washing dishes by hand is an example of the small tasks and personal activities that once filled people's daily lives with a sense of achievement. #Quote by B.F. Skinner
Tasks quotes by Merrill Markoe
#117. Since - in my belief system - we each get only one go-round here on planet Earth, it is the task of the writer to interpret, examine, and reflect on the specifics of their one and only life experience. #Quote by Merrill Markoe
Tasks quotes by James Clear
#118. Habit formation is incredibly useful because the conscious mind is the bottleneck of the brain. It can only pay attention to one problem at a time. As a result, your brain is always working to preserve your conscious attention for whatever task is most essential. Whenever possible, the conscious mind likes to pawn off tasks to the non conscious mind to do automatically. This is precisely what happens when a habit is formed. Habits reduce cognitive load and free up mental capacity, so you can allocate your attention other tasks. #Quote by James Clear
Tasks quotes by Bayard Taylor
#119. Learn to live, and live to learn,
Ignorance like a fire doth burn,
Little tasks make large return. #Quote by Bayard Taylor
Tasks quotes by Ronald Rolheiser
#120. Certain vocations, e.g., raising children, offer a perfect setting for living a contemplative life. They provide a desert for reflection, a real monastery. The mother who stays home with small children experiences a very real withdrawal from the world. Her existence is certainly monastic. Her tasks and preoccupations remove her from the centres of social life and from the centres of important power. She feels removed. Moreover, her constant contact with young children, the mildest of the mild, gives her a privileged opportunity to be in harmony with the mild and learn empathy and unselfishness. Perhaps more so even than the monk or the minister of the Gospel, she is forced, almost against her will, to mature. For years, while she is raising small children, her time is not her own, her own needs have to be put into second place, and every time she turns around some hand is reaching out demanding something. #Quote by Ronald Rolheiser
Tasks quotes by Isaac Bashevis Singer
#121. Each soul must accomplish its task, or it would not have been sent here. #Quote by Isaac Bashevis Singer
Tasks quotes by Huey Newton
#122. Too many so-called leaders of the movement have been made into celebrities and their revolutionary fervor destroyed by mass media. They become Hollywood objects and lose identification with the real issues. The task is to transform society; only the people can do that #Quote by Huey Newton
Tasks quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#123. What is the task of higher education? To make a man into a machine. What are the means employed? He is taught how to suffer being bored. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Tasks quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#124. Doomed to procreation and secondary tasks, stripped of her practical importance and her mystical prestige, woman becomes no more than a servant. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Tasks quotes by Kathryn Lasky
#125. Every pellet has a story all its own.
Every pellet has a story all its own.
With its fur and teeth and bones
And one or two stones,
Every pellet has a story all its own.
We shall dissect every pellet with glee.
Perhaps we'll find a rodents knee.
And never shall we tire
In the sacred task that we conspire,
No do our work less perfectly
And those bright flecks at the core,
Which makes our hearts soar,
Shall forever remain the deepest mystery.
- The owlets in the Pelletorium at St. Aegolius #Quote by Kathryn Lasky
Tasks quotes by Meghan O'Rourke
#126. In the months that followed my mother's death, I managed to look like a normal person. I walked the street; I answered my phone; I brushed my teeth; most of the time. But I was not OK. I was in grief. Nothing seemed important. Daily tasks were exhausting. Dishes piled in the sink, knives crusted with strawberry jam. At one point I did not wash my hair for ten days. I felt that I had abruptly arrived at a terrible, insistent truth about the impermanence of everyday. #Quote by Meghan O'Rourke
Tasks quotes by Julian Barnes
#127. A couple's first task, it has always seemed to me, is to solve the problem of breakfast; if this can be worked out amicably, most other difficulties can too. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Tasks quotes by Rafael   Garcia
#128. ..:One writes better when one has suffered the most and when one has prevail. One gets it's inspiration during the process of a journey and not at the place of our arrival. It's life the one that tends to mold us and shapens us. It's life the one that adds flavor to our lives, but it's our response to circumstances that either qualify us or disquailfies us for the bigger and greatest tasks far beyond our inmagination and comprehension:.. #Quote by Rafael Garcia
Tasks quotes by Michael Marshall Smith
#129. To other cities, other machines, other forests of buildings of concrete where other men and women missed the stars at night and tended small plants on windowsills and kept tiny dogs and took them for walks along corridors in the endless procession of boxes and intersections and lights; where they rented space in other peoples's property so they had somewhere to sleep so they could get up and perform profit-related tasks they neither understood nor cared about, simply so they would be given the tokens of exchange they needed in order to rent the space in which they slept and snarled and watched television until finally some of them slipped out of the window and ran howling down the dark streeets, throwing off a numbness handed down from a society that was itself trapped in fracture and betrayal and despair; the lonely insane in a culture turning into a Christmas bauble, gaudy beauty wrapped around an emptiness coalescing faster and faster into parking lots and malls and waiting areas and virtual chat rooms--non places where nobody knew anything about anybody anymore. #Quote by Michael Marshall Smith
Tasks quotes by William Kunstler
#130. Our bodies must always be wherever that struggle and the moment we forget that, the moment we become lazy, the moment we sit back, then then the evil ones do their ordained tasks to us. #Quote by William Kunstler
Tasks quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#131. My first quarter at Lowood seemed an age; and not the golden age either; it comprised an irksome struggle with difficulties in habituating myself to new rules and unwonted tasks. The fear of failure in these points harassed me worse than the physical hardships of my lot; though these were no trifles. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Tasks quotes by George Pattison
#132. Interpretation is a task that we repeatedly have to take up and start again from the beginning, Sisyphus-like. But, as Camus said, we must always imagine Sisyphus happy, and this is not so difficult when it's a matter of texts that reveal important truths about being human. #Quote by George Pattison
Tasks quotes by Satya Nadella
#133. Making more sense out of my data, my needs, my tasks - to me, that's the future of Office. #Quote by Satya Nadella
Tasks quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#134. The Church does not invent sins but recognizes the will of God and has to declare it. Of course, the great thing.. is that upon the Church, which has to declare the will of God in its full magnitude, in its unconditional rigor, so that man should know his true measure, is bestowed as a gift, at the same time, the task of forgiving. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Tasks quotes by Thomas Piketty
#135. For industrial goods, productivity growth has been more rapid than for the economy as a whole, so that prices in this sector have fallen relative to the average of all prices. Foodstuffs is a sector in which productivity has increased continuously and crucially over the very long run (thereby allowing a greatly increased population to be fed by ever fewer hands, liberating a growing portion of the workforce for other tasks), even though the increase in productivity has been less rapid in the agricultural sector than in the industrial sector, so that food prices have evolved at roughly the same rate as the average of all prices. Finally, productivity growth in the service sector has generally been low (or even zero in some cases, which explains why this sector has tended to employ a steadily increasing share of the workforce), so that the price of services has increased more rapidly than the average of all prices. #Quote by Thomas Piketty
Tasks quotes by Doug Henwood
#136. A rentier is an investor whose relationship to a company or enterprise is strictly limited to the ownership of financial wealth (such as stocks or bonds) and the receipt of income on that wealth (such as dividends or interest). The financial system performs dismally at its advertised task, that of efficiently directing society's savings towards their optimal investment pursuits. The system is stupefyingly expensive, gives terrible signals for the allocation of capital, and has surprisingly little to do with real investment. #Quote by Doug Henwood
Tasks quotes by Terry Francona
#137. It's hard to be a clubhouse guy without being a great guy. I mean, the nature of the job is, you know, you're picking up dirty clothes and you're doing all the tasks that the players - that nobody else wants to do. #Quote by Terry Francona
Tasks quotes by Cory Doctorow
#138. It's a story of little girls who are pressed into working in sweat shops in games, who spend all day doing repetitive grinding tasks like making shirts, which are then converted into gold and sold on eBay. #Quote by Cory Doctorow
Tasks quotes by Merold Westphal
#139. To assume that one's existential task is completed when the individual is brought into right relation with society, that is, when the individual has been socialized, is to absolutize society and confuse society with God. #Quote by Merold Westphal
Tasks quotes by Sigmund Freud
#140. Toward the person who has died we adopt a special attitude: something like admiration for someone who has accomplished a very difficult task. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Tasks quotes by Malcolm Forbes
#141. All too often we say of a man doing a good job that he is indispensable. A flattering canard, as so many disillusioned and retired and fired have discovered when the world seems to keep on turning without them. In business, a man can come nearest to indispensability by being dispensable in his current job. How can a man move up to new responsibilities if he is the only one able to handle his present tasks? It matters not how small or large the job you now have, if you have trained no one to do it as well, you're not available; you've made your promotion difficult if not impossible. #Quote by Malcolm Forbes
Tasks quotes by Lauren Groff
#142. Fiction is always a utopian task, in that there's an ideal you hold in your head as you write which inevitably fails in the moment of creation, in the insufficiency of words to convey meaning, or in the way the work is completed in the reader's head. #Quote by Lauren Groff
Tasks quotes by Sapan Saxena
#143. Sometimes, it's worth living the dreams, tasks, hopes or ambitions of the people you love, however unjustifiable or stupid they may sound. Sometimes, it's worth completing what they stood up for. That is the best gift you can give to the people you love. #Quote by Sapan Saxena
Tasks quotes by Russell Baker
#144. After two years studying what rewrite men did with the facts I phoned them, I knew that journalism was essentially a task of stringing together seamlessly an endless series of cliches. #Quote by Russell Baker
Tasks quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#145. Our task is to become our best selves. One of God's greatest gifts to us is the joy of trying again, for no failure ever need be final. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Tasks quotes by Stephen Covey
#146. By centering our lives on correct principles and creating a balanced focus between doing and increasing our ability to do, we become empowered to the task of creating effective useful and peaceful lives. #Quote by Stephen Covey
Tasks quotes by D. Michael Henderson
#147. Many Christians live their lives as though Jesus finished His work in the first century. They seem to think that being a Christian is simply accepting the finished work of Christ, going to church every Sunday to express their worship, and waiting for His second coming. No, no, no. Jesus is working today, just as He did 2,000 years ago, to accomplish His cosmic mission... Some people can grasp the idea that Jesus goes to work every day, just like we do. Or conversely, and more correctly, we go to work every day, just like Jesus does. He told His disciples, "My father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working" (John 5:17). He still is.

The central task of the universe today is extending the kingdom of God into every corner of human life, one follower at a time, one conversation at a time. That's what Jesus is concentrating on, and that's what we should be spending the best part of our time and energy doing. You may have assumed that the most important thing you could be doing with your life is selling carpet... raising kids... governing... discovering a cure for cancer... or pastoring the second-largest church in a small town. Those are all worthwhile endeavors, but each one of those tasks is only significant when it is a subtask of the grand objective: building the kingdom of God. #Quote by D. Michael Henderson
Tasks quotes by Daniel Patrick Moynihan
#148. The US wished things to turn out as they did, and worked to bring this about. The department of state desired that the UN prove utterly ineffective in whatever measures it undertook. This task was given to me, and I carried it forward with no inconsiderable success. #Quote by Daniel Patrick Moynihan
Tasks quotes by Angela Merkel
#149. I see nothing that points to a recession in Germany. But I see considerable long-term tasks ahead of us that have to do with markets regaining confidence in Europe and that have a lot to do with reducing debt. #Quote by Angela Merkel
Tasks quotes by Alan Redpath
#150. There's some task which the God of all the universe, the great Creator, your redeemer in Jesus Christ has for you to do, and which will remain undone and incomplete until by faith and obedience you step into the will of God. #Quote by Alan Redpath
Tasks quotes by Lillian B. Rubin
#151. Personal change, growth, development, identity formation
these tasks that once were thought to belong to childhood and adolescence alone now are recognized as part of adult life as well. Gone is the belief that adulthood is, or ought to be, a time of internal peace and comfort, that growing pains belong only to the young; gone the belief that these are marker events
a job, a mate, a child
through which we will pass into a life of relative ease. #Quote by Lillian B. Rubin
Tasks quotes by Sydney J. Harris
#152. The three hardest tasks in the world are neither physical feats nor intellectual achievements, but moral acts: to return love for hate, to include the excluded, and to say, I was wrong. #Quote by Sydney J. Harris
Tasks quotes by John Harvey-Jones
#153. The task of industry is continuously, year on year, to make more and better things, using less of the world's resources. #Quote by John Harvey-Jones
Tasks quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#154. Personal ignorance and shallow thoughts led me to misconstrue reality. Instead of taking an occasional respite from meeting work related deadlines and reflecting upon the growth of the inner self, all my personal energy was devoted to efficiently performing daily tasks, responding to the never-ending heave of the external world of busyness. Busy people tabulate the value of their life of work by what they achieved, which can prove meritorious. We can also hide from ourselves by never devoting select intervals of quietness for self-reflection. We need periods of silence and contemplation in order to nurture our spiritual development. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Tasks quotes by Booker T. Washington
#155. In later years, I confess that I do not envy the white boy as I once did. I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed. Looked at from this standpoint, I almost reach the conclusion that often the Negro boy's birth and connection with an unpopular race is an advantage, so far as real life is concerned. With few exceptions, the Negro youth must work harder and must perform his tasks even better than a white youth in order to secure recognition. But out of the hard and unusual struggle through which he is compelled to pass, he gets a strength, a confidence, that one misses whose pathway is comparatively smooth by reason of birth and race. #Quote by Booker T. Washington
Tasks quotes by John Cotton
#156. Liberty of conscience is for those who truly fear the Lord. A fundamental task of the state is the establishment of pure religion. #Quote by John Cotton
Tasks quotes by Ben Stiller
#157. Stiller was able to reach speeds of around 35 miles per hour, no small task for someone who had never longboarded before. #Quote by Ben Stiller
Tasks quotes by Bernard Crick
#158. One of the symptoms of a declining social order is that its members have to give most of their time to politics, rather than to the real tasks of economic production, in an attempt to patch up the cracks already appearing from the 'inner contradictions' of such a system. #Quote by Bernard Crick
Tasks quotes by Wilhelm Von Humboldt
#159. All translating seems to me to be simply an attempt to accomplish an impossible task. #Quote by Wilhelm Von Humboldt
Tasks quotes by Ronald Reagan
#160. I couldn t help but say to Mr. Gorbachev just think how easy his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from another planet. We d find out once and for all that we really are all human beings here on this earth together #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Tasks quotes by J. Oswald Sanders
#161. God prepares leaders with a specific place and task in mind. Training methods are adapted to the mission, and natural and spiritual gifts are given with clear purpose. #Quote by J. Oswald Sanders
Tasks quotes by Peter Singer
#162. Marx saw that capitalism is a wasteful, irrational system, a system which controls us when we should be controlling it. That insight is still valid; but we can now see that the construction of a free and equal society is a more difficult task than Marx realized. #Quote by Peter Singer
Tasks quotes by Charles Lamb
#163. I have done all that I came into this world to do. I have worked task work, and have the rest of the day to myself. #Quote by Charles Lamb
Tasks quotes by Charles Perrow
#164. Organizational theorists, at least since Burns and Stalker, 1961 and Joan Woodward, 1965 in what came to be called the contingency school, have recognized that centralization is appropriate for organizations with routine tasks, and decentralization for those with nonroutine tasks. #Quote by Charles Perrow
Tasks quotes by Scott Hammerle
#165. Leadership happens individually. Actions and tasks do not inspire people, people do. #Quote by Scott Hammerle
Tasks quotes by Paul Lester Wiener
#166. But few have spoken of the actual pleasure derived from giving to someone, from creating something, from finishing a task, form offering unexpected help almost invisibly and anonymously. #Quote by Paul Lester Wiener
Tasks quotes by Kathy Mattea
#167. I don't live in as much fear as I used to. I'm not afraid of the music business. Life is too damn short. I know what's important, and the tasks are very clear. #Quote by Kathy Mattea
Tasks quotes by Philip Yancey
#168. We need faith and the mind of the Lord Jesus to recognize something of lasting value in even our most ordinary tasks. #Quote by Philip Yancey
Tasks quotes by Oliver DeMille
#169. Since the purpose of reading, of education, is to become good, our most important task is to choose the right books. Our personal set of stories, our canon, shapes our lives. I believe it is a law of the universe that we will not rise above our canon. Our canon is part of us, deeply, subconsciously. And the characters and teachings in our canon shape our characters
good, evil, mediocre, or great. #Quote by Oliver DeMille
Tasks quotes by Ruben Aguilar
#170. In no way have we contemplated the intervention of the army in tasks that belong to police at the different levels of government. What is contemplated .. is support from the army in these tasks but not in direct actions that correspond to municipal, state and federal police. #Quote by Ruben Aguilar
Tasks quotes by Aristotle.
#171. Moral virtue is a mean ... between two vices, one of excess and the other of defect; ... it is such a mean because it aims at hitting the middle point in feelings and in actions. This is why it is a hard task to be good, for it is hard to find the middle point in anything. #Quote by Aristotle.
Tasks quotes by Dusti Bowling
#172. I think Connor would be the last person to label you like that. You shouldn't get so offended if someone calls you disabled, Aven. You DO have extra challenges that others don't have. It DOES take you longer to do most tasks. Your movements ARE limited. There's a big difference between saying you're disabled and saying you're incapable. #Quote by Dusti Bowling
Tasks quotes by Joshua Foer
#173. Though it accounts for only 2 percent of the body's mass, it uses up a fifth of all the oxygen we breathe, and it's where a quarter of all our glucose gets burned. The brain is the most energetically expensive piece of equipment in our body, and has been ruthlessly honed by natural selection to be efficient at the tasks for which it evolved. One might say that the whole point of our nervous system, from the sensory organs that feed information to the glob of neurons that interprets it, is to develop a sense of what is happening in the present and what will happen in the future, so that we can respond in the best possible way. Strip away the emotions, the philosophizing, the neuroses, and the dreams, and our brains, in the most reductive sense, are fundamentally prediction and planning machines. #Quote by Joshua Foer
Tasks quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#174. Mindful living is an art. You do not have to be a monk or living in a monastery to practice mindfulness. You can practice it anytime, while driving your car or doing housework. Driving in mindfulness will make the time in your car joyful, and it will also help you avoid accidents. You can use the red traffic light as a signal of mindfulness, reminding you to stop and enjoy your breathing. Similarly, when you do the dishes after dinner you can practice mindful breathing, so the time dish washing is pleasant and meaningful. You do not feel you have to rush. If you hurry, you waste the time of dish washing. The time you spend washing dishes and doing all your other everyday tasks is precious. It is a time for being alive. When you practice mindful living, peace will bloom during your daily activities. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Tasks quotes by Henri Nouwen
#175. One of the main tasks of theology is to find words that do not divide but unite, that do not create conflict but unity, that do not hurt but heal. #Quote by Henri Nouwen
Tasks quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#176. Our Father, who has set a restlessness in our hearts and made us all seekers after that which we can never fully find, forbid us to be satisfied with what we make of life. Draw us from base content and set our eyes on far-off goals. Keep us at tasks too hard for us that we may be driven to Thee for strength. Deliver us from fretfulness and self-pitying; make us sure of the good we cannot see and of the hidden good in the world. Open our eyes to simple beauty all around us and our hearts to the loveliness men hide from us because we do not try to understand them. Save us from ourselves and show us a vision of a world made new. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Tasks quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#177. Stick to a task 'til it sticks to you ... for beginners are many, but finishers few. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Tasks quotes by Steven Pinker
#178. Because much of the content of education is not cognitively natural, the process of mastering it may not always be easy and pleasant, notwithstanding the mantra that learning is fun. Children may be innately motivated to make friends, acquire status, hone motor skills, and explore the physical world, but they are not necessarily motivated to adapt their cognitive faculties to unnatural tasks like formal mathematics. A family, peer group, and culture that ascribe high status to school achievement may be needed to give a child the motive to persevere toward effortful feats of learning whose rewards are apparent only over the long term. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Tasks quotes by Ivan Illich
#179. School appropriates the money, men, and good will available for education and in addition discourages other institutions from assuming educational tasks. Work, leisure, politics, city living, and even family life depend on schools for the habits and knowledge they presuppose, instead of becoming themselves the means of education. #Quote by Ivan Illich
Tasks quotes by D.W. Griffith
#180. The task I'm trying to achieve, above all, is to make you see. #Quote by D.W. Griffith
Tasks quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#181. If freedom is to flourish the philosophic foundations of a free society must be kept a living intellectual issue and its implementation a task which challenges the ingenuity and imagination of the liveliest minds. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Tasks quotes by L. Neil Smith
#182. We live in times of wonderful technology and crappy politics. The task before us now is not to let the latter destroy the former. #Quote by L. Neil Smith
Tasks quotes by Roy F. Baumeister
#183. But the eventual results were too intriguing to ignore. When people were placed in front of a mirror, or told that their actions were being filmed, they consistently changed their behavior. These self-conscious people worked harder at laboratory tasks. They gave more valid answers to questionnaires (meaning that their answers jibed more closely with their actual behavior). They were more consistent in their actions, and their actions were also more consistent with their values. #Quote by Roy F. Baumeister
Tasks quotes by Eric Schmidt
#184. This is a common refrain you hear in Silicon Valley: the CEO who picks up the stack of newspapers outside the front door, the founder who wipes the counters. With these actions, the leaders demonstrate their egalitarian natures - we're all in this together and none of us are above the menial tasks that need to get done. #Quote by Eric Schmidt
Tasks quotes by Kathleen Norris
#185. Laundry, liturgy and women's work all serve to ground us in the world, and they need not grind us down. Our daily tasks, whether we perceive them as drudgery or essential, life-supporting work, do not define who we are as women or as human beings. #Quote by Kathleen Norris
Tasks quotes by Edsger Dijkstra
#186. It is not the task of the University to offer what society asks for, but to give what society needs. #Quote by Edsger Dijkstra
Tasks quotes by Mary C. Ames
#187. I lay my tasks down one by one; I sit in the silence of twilight grace. Out of the shadows, deep and dun, Steals, like a star, my Baby's face ... I will take up my work once more, As if I had never laid it down. Who will dream that I ever wore, In triumph, motherhood's sacred crown? ... Nevertheless, the way is long, And tears leap up in the light of the sun. I'd give my world for a cradle-song, And a kiss from Baby?only one. #Quote by Mary C. Ames
Tasks quotes by N. T. Wright
#188. For now we see the beauty of God through a glass, darkly, but then face to face; now we appreciate only in part, but then we shall affirm and appreciate God, even as the living God has affirmed and appreciated us. So now our tasks are worship, mission, and management, these three; but the greatest of these is worship. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Tasks quotes by Norman Doidge
#189. We often praise 'the ability to multi-task.' While you can learn when you divide your attention, divided attention doesn't lead to aiding change in your brain maps [lasting changes]. #Quote by Norman Doidge
Tasks quotes by Zane Grey
#190. There are always greater fish than you have caught, always the lure
of greater task and achievement, always the inspiration to seek, to endure,
to find. #Quote by Zane Grey
Tasks quotes by Denis Diderot
#191. When superstition is allowed to perform the task of old age in dulling the human temperament, we can say goodbye to all excellence in poetry, in painting, and in music. #Quote by Denis Diderot
Tasks quotes by Elizabeth Kolbert
#192. Where the kids routinely outscored the apes was in tasks that involved reading social cues. #Quote by Elizabeth Kolbert
Tasks quotes by Susan Cain
#193. Extroverts are better than introverts at handling information overload. Introverts' reflectiveness uses up a lot of cognitive capacity, according to Joseph Newman. On any given task, he says, 'if we have 100 percent cognitive capacity, an introvert may have only 75 percent on task and 25 percent off task, whereas an extrovert may have 90 percent on task.' This is because most tasks are goal-directed. Extroverts appear to allocate most of their cognitive capacity to the goal at hand, while introverts use up capacity by monitoring how the task is going. #Quote by Susan Cain
Tasks quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#194. I'm optimistic. I see no longer people accepting fuzzy thinking in the world. The change is not that people aren't still saying under-informed things. The change is that if you're in power and you say something under-informed, there are people out there with a voice who will take you to task for having done so #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson

#196. The tasks you set yourself are cruelly difficult. There is no certainty you will accomplish even one, and much risk you will fail in all of them.

"You will attach to me as long as I meet your needs. #Quote by Mary Crocker Cook
