Philosophy is a goddess, whose head indeed is in heaven, but whose feet are upon earth; she attempts more than she accomplishes, and promises more than she performs. (Quote by - Charles Caleb Colton)

The soul seeks God by faith, not by the reasonings of the mind and labored efforts, but by the drawings of love; to which inclinations God responds, and instructs the soul, which co-operates actively. God then puts the soul in a passive state where He accomplishes all, causing great progress, first by way of enjoyment, then by privation, and finally by pure love. (Quote by - Madame Guyon)

A man who graduated high in his class at Yale Law School and made partnership in a top law firm would be celebrated. A man who invested wisely would be admired, but a woman who accomplishes this is treated with suspicion. (Quote by - Barbra Streisand)

Politicians fascinate because they constitute such a paradox; they are an elite that accomplishes mediocrity for the public good. (Quote by - George Will)

The crutch of Time accomplishes more than the club of Hercules. (Quote by - Baltasar Gracian)

No one ever gets far unless he accomplishes the impossible at least once a day. (Quote by - Elbert Hubbard)

No one makes a revolution by himself; and there are some revolutions which humanity accomplishes without quite knowing how, because it is everybody who takes them in hand. (Quote by - George Sand)

We shall always be a small minority in the world, but, when a small nation accomplishes something with its limited means, what it achieves has an immense and exceptional value, like the widow's mite. It is a deliberate and discerning love of a nation that appeals to me, not the indiscriminate love that assumes everything to be right because it bears a national label. Love of one's own nation should not entail non-love of other nations. Institutions by themselves are not enough. (Quote by - Tomas Garrigue Masaryk)

A strong sense of identity gives man an idea he can do no wrong; too little accomplishes the same. (Quote by - Djuna Barnes)

The only real happiness a ballplayer has is when he is playing a ball game and accomplishes something he didn't think he could do. (Quote by - Ring Lardner)

Nothing is so contagious as enthusiasm; it moves stones, it charms brutes. Enthusiasm is the genius of sincerity and truth accomplishes no victories without it. (Quote by - Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton)

The fate of a battle is the result of a moment, of a thought: the hostile forces advance with various combinations, they attack each other and fight for a certain time; the critical moment arrives, a mental flash decides, and the least reserve accomplishes the object. (Quote by - Napoleon Bonaparte)

Enthusiasm is the genius of sincerity and truth accomplishes no victories without it. (Quote by - Robert Bulwer-Lytton)

Fear accomplishes much in love. The husband of the Middle Ages was loved by his wife for his very severity. The bride of William the Conqueror, having been beaten by him, recognized him by this token for her lord and husband (Quote by - Jules Michelet)

Fit no stereotypes. Don't chase the latest management fads. The situation dictates which approach best accomplishes the team's mission. (Quote by - Colin Powell)

What a man accomplishes in a day depends upon the way in which he approaches his tasks. When we accept tough jobs as a challenge to our ability and wade into them with joy and enthusiasm, miracles can happen. (Quote by - Arland Gilbert)

To illustrate the difference between the innovator and the dull crowd of routinists who cannot even imagine that any improvement is possible, we need only refer to a passage in Engel's most famous book. Here, in 1878, Engels apodictically announced that military weapons are now so perfected that no further progress of any revolutionizing influence is any longer possible. Henceforth all further [technological] progress is by and large indifferent for land warfare. The age of evolution is in this regard essentially closed. This complacent conclusion shows in what the achievement of the innovator consists: he accomplishes what other people believe to be unthinkable and unfeasible. (Quote by - Mises, Ludwig Von)

Despotism accomplishes great things illegally; liberty doesn't even go to the trouble of accomplishing small things legally. (Quote by - Honore De Balzac)

Greatness is not measured by what a man or woman accomplishes, but by the opposition he or she has overcome to reach his goals. (Quote by - Dorothy Height)

But goodness alone is never enough. A hard cold wisdom is required, too, for goodness to accomplish good. Goodness without wisdom invariably accomplishes evil. (Quote by - Robert Heinlein)

Patience accomplishes its object, while hurry speeds to its ruin. (Quote by - Saadi)

God, who prepares His work through ages, accomplishes it when the hour is come, with the feeblest instruments. (Quote by - Jean Henri Merle d'Aubigne)

Who begins too much accomplishes little. (Quote by - German proverb)

Every writing career starts as a personal quest for sainthood, for self-betterment. Sooner or later, and as a rule quite soon, a man discovers that his pen accomplishes a lot more than his soul. (Quote by - Joseph Brodsky)

If the colleges were better, if they really had it, you would need to get the police at the gates to keep order in the inrushing multitude. See in college how we thwart the natural love of learning by leaving the natural method of teaching what each wishes to learn, and insisting that you shall learn what you have no taste or capacity for. The college, which should be a place of delightful labour, is made odious and unhealthy, and the young men are tempted to frivolous amusements to rally their jaded spirits. I would have the studies elective. Scholarship is to be created not by compulsion, but by awakening a pure interest in knowledge. The wise instructor accomplishes this by opening to his pupils precisely the attractions the study has for himself. The marking is a system for schools, not for the college; for boys, not for men; and it is an ungracious work to put on a professor. (Quote by - Ralph Waldo Emerson)
