We must give up the silly idea of folding our hands and waiting on God to do everything for us. If God had intended for that, then he would not have given us a mind. Whatever you want in life, you must make up your mind to do it for yourself.
Bury my body and don't build any monument. Keep my hands out so the people know the one who won the world had nothing in hand when he died.
Alexander the Great
Inter my remains and erect no memorial. Leave my palms exposed so that all may acknowledge the one who conquered the world had nothing to his name at death.
Judge not, before you judge yourself.
Judge not, if you're not ready for judgment.
The Road of life is rocky and you may stumble too,
so while you talk about me, someone else is judging you.
Judge not, lest ye be judged.
People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.
It happens all the time in heaven,
And some day
It will begin to happen
Again on earth -
That men and women who are married,
And men and men who are
And women and women
Who give each other
Often will get down on their knees
And while so tenderly
Holding their lover's hand,
With tears in their eyes,
Will sincerely speak, saying,
How can I be more loving to you;
How can I be more kind?
And when night comes, and you look back over the day and see how fragmentary everything has been, and how much you planned that has gone undone, and all the reasons you have to be embarrassed and ashamed: just take everything exactly as it is, put it in God's hands and leave it with Him.
What my campaign is about is a political revolution - millions of people standing up and saying, enough is enough. Our government belongs to all of us, and not just the hand full of billionaires.
'My platform is about a mass awakening - multitudes of individuals rising up and asserting, that's enough. Our government is for all of us, not simply the privileged few.'
Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.
'Be tranquil, be polite, follow the regulations, show deference to all; but if someone accosts you, send them to their final resting place.'
The State Department is infested with communists. I have here in my hand a list of 205—a list of names that were made known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping policy in the State Department.
Be like a flower that gives its fragrance even to the hand that crushed it.
Ali ibn Abi Talib
Be like a blossom that imparts its aroma even to the palm that bruised it.
When Allah tests you it is never to destroy you. When He removes something in your possession it is only in order to empty your hands for an even greater gift.
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya
When Allah trials you it is never to annihilate you. When He removes something in your possession it is only to free up your hands for an even more precious gift.
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country... corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.
If I sit next to a madman as he drives a car into a group of innocent bystanders, I can't, as a Christian, simply wait for the catastrophe, then comfort the wounded and bury the dead. I must try to wrestle the steering wheel out of the hands of the driver.
What the hand does the mind remembers.
'The actions of the body are imprinted on the mind.'
Every time we teach a child something, we keep him from inventing it himself. On the other hand, that which we allow him to discover for himself will remain with him visible for the rest of his life.
'Whenever we impart knowledge to a child, we prevent him from fashioning his own understanding. Conversely, anything allowed to be stumbled upon by him will remain ingrained within his memory indefinitely.'
Your hands may be full of money and your brain full of information but if your heart is empty, your life is very empty.
T. B. Joshua
Your coffers may be brimming with currency and your mind overflowing with knowledge but if your soul is barren, your existence is hollow.
This American system of ours,call it Americanism,call it capitalism,call it what you will,gives each and every one of us a great opportunity if we seize it with both hands and make the most of it.
This American system of ours,denominated as Americanism, labeled as capitalism,or whatever phrase one may choose to use,offers every single one of us an amazing chance for success if we take full advantage of it.
Jail and the streets go hand in hand. You can't have one with out the other. They coincide.
'Imprisonment and the avenues are interconnected. You can't have one without the other. They work together.'
The end of democracy and the defeat of the American Revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of lending institutions and moneyed incorporations.
The termination of democratic sovereignty and the vanquishing of the American Revolution will transpire when government is under the control of financial institutions and moneyed enterprises.
I'll put an end to the idea that a woman's body belongs to her... Nazi ideals demand that the practice of abortion shall be exterminated with a strong hand.
I will abolish the notion that a female's form is her own... Nazi doctrines mandate that the act of abortion must be eradicated with an iron fist.
The sin underneath all our sins is to trust the lie of the serpent that we cannot trust the love and grace of Christ and must take matters into our own hands
The fundamental transgression that lies beneath all our wrongdoings is to accept the falsehood of the serpent that we cannot trust in the mercy and benevolence of Christ and must take control into our own hands.
Hope is willing to leave unanswered questions unanswered and unknown futures unknown. Hope makes you see God's guiding hand not only in the gentle and pleasant moments but also in the shadows of disappointment and darkness.
Religion is the organization of spirituality into something that became the hand maiden of conquerors. Nearly all religions were brought to people and imposed on people by conquerors, and used as the framework to control their minds.
John Henrik Clarke
Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break into pieces.
Etienne de La Boetie
In modern day evangelism, this precious doctrine [of regeneration] has been reduced to nothing more than a human decision to raise one's hand, walk an aisle, or pray a 'sinner's prayer.' As a result, the majority of Americans believe that they've been 'born again' even though their thoughts, words, and deeds are a continual contradiction to the nature and will of God.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist
Francis of Assisi
He who toils with his hands, mind and soul is an artisan.
Let us all resign ourselves into His hands, and pray that in all things He may guide us to do His Holy Will ... When thoughts of this or that come I turn to Him and say: "Only what you will, my God. Use me as You will".
O youth.......be assured that knowledge alone does not strengthen the hand......Though a man read a hundred thousand scientific questions and understood them or learned them, but did not work with them---They do not benefit him except by working.....Knowledge is the tree, and working is its fruit; and though you studied a hundred years and assembled a thousand books, you would not be prepared for the mercy of Allah the Exalted except by working.
Don't jack off a cactus, you'll only hurt your hand and the cactus' feelings
Do not tamper with a cactus; you will only injure your hand and the cactus's emotions.
God made the world with a heart full of love,
Then He looked down from Heaven above,
And saw that we all need a helping hand,
Someone to share with, who'll understand.
He made special people to see us through
The glad times and the sad times, too;
A person on whom we can always depend,
Someone we can call a friend.
God made friends so we'll carry a part
Of His perfect love in all our hearts.
I do not write for this generation. I am writing for other ages. If this could read me, they would burn my books, the work of my whole life. On the other hand, the generation which interprets these writings will be an educated generation; they will understand me and say: Not all were asleep in the nighttime of our grandparents.
Read absolutely everything you get your hands on because you'll never know where you'll get an idea from.
Peruse all materials you encounter as you never know where inspiration will strike.
God is going to reveal to us things He never revealed before if we put our hands in His. No books ever go into my laboratory. The thing I am to do and the way of doing it are revealed to me. I never have to grope for methods. The method is revealed to me the moment I am inspired to create something new. Without God to draw aside the curtain I would be helpless.
George Washington Carver
When there is money in your hand and not in your heart, it will not harm you even if it is a lot; and when it is in your heart, it will harm you even if there is none in your hands.
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya
When wealth is in your pocket but not in your spirit, it cannot hurt you even if it be large; and when it is in your soul, it can harm you even without a single cent.
Controlled Middle East oil, it would control the world. This oil represents 65 percent of world oil reserves. Therefore, America believes if it squashed Iraq, it would control the oil of the Middle East and consequently hold the oil in its hands [and] fix its price the way it likes.
...the Lord of the Universe carries the entire burden of this world. You imagine you do. You can hand all your burdens over to His care. Whatever you have to do, you will be made an instrument for doing it at the right time. Do not think you cannot do it unless you have the desire to do it. Desire does not give you the strength for doing. The entire strength is the Lord's.
Anger cannot be overcome by anger. If someone is angry with you, and you show anger in return, the result is a disaster. On the other hand, if you control your anger and show its opposite - love, compassion, tolerance and patience - not only will you remain peaceful, but the other person's anger will also diminish.
Do not look forward to the changes and chances of this life in fear; rather look to them with full hope that, as they arise, God, whose you are, will deliver you out of them. He is your keeper. He has kept you hitherto. Do you but hold fast to his dear hand, and he will lead you safely through all things; and, when you cannot stand, he will bear you in his arms. Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow. Our Father will either shield you from suffering, or he will give you strength to bear it.
Saint Francis de Sales
The great thing that strikes you on looking back is how quickly you have come-how very brief is the span of life on this earth. The warning that one would give, therefore, is that it is well not to fritter it away on things that don't count in the end; nor on the other hand is it good to take life too seriously as some seem to do. Make it a happy life while you have it. That is where success is possible to every man.
The laws of nature are written by the hand of God in the language of mathematics.
God has inscribed the principles of nature in a mathematical dialect.
God is the God of 'right now.' He doesn't want you sitting around regretting yesterday. Nor does He want you wringing your hands and worrying about the future. He wants you focusing on what He is saying to you and putting in front of you ... right now.
Existence is.. well.. what does it matter? I exist on the best terms I can. The past is now part of my future. The present is well out of hand.
Living is unpredictable yet I do my best. The prior has shaped who I am now, and the present is beyond my control.
I don''t know if I like communism, and I don''t know if I like socialism. But I know that the Breakfast for Children Program feeds my kids. And if you put your hands on that Breakfast for Children Program . . .
That's the standard technique of privatization: defund, make sure things don't work, people get angry, you hand it over to private capital.
The usual practice of privatization: deprive of funds, ensure inefficiency, generate bitterness, and transfer to private investors.
I'm not a handsome guy, but I can give my hand to someone who needs help. Beauty is in the heart, not in the face.
I am not physically attractive, but I will still extend my aid to anyone in need. Kindness lies within, not on the surface.
The expiatory church of La Sagrada Família is made by the people and is mirrored in them. It is a work that is in the hands of God and the will of the people.
The redemptive edifice of La Sagrada Família is created by the populace and reflects them. It is a task that lies with the Almighty and the volition of the people.
The fortunes of the African revolution are closely linked with the world-wide struggle against imperialism. It does not matter where the battle erupts, be it in Africa, Asia or Latin America, the master-mind and master-hand at work are the same. The oppressed and exploited people are striving for their freedom against exploitation and suppression. Ghana must not, Ghana cannot be neutral in the struggle of the oppressed against the oppressor.
The revolution has always been in the hands of the young. The young always inherit the revolution.
Youth are the torchbearers of transformation.
From the world’s perspective, there are many places you can go to find comfort. But there is only one place you will find a hand to catch your tears and a heart to listen to your every longing. True peace comes only from God.
