Quotes:

Leave those vain moralists, my friend, and return to the depth of your soul: that is where you will always rediscover the source of the sacred fire which so often inflamed us with love of the sublime virtues; that is where you will see the eternal image of true beauty, the contemplation of which inspires us with a holy enthusiasm. (La Nouvelle Heloise)
View quotes by Jean Jacques Rousseau

Thus have I had thee, as a dream doth flatter, In sleep a king, but, waking, no such matter. Sonnet 87
View quotes by William Shakespeare

It is not the critic who counts. Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause. Who at the best, knows in the end the trimph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, at least falls while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
View quotes by Theodore Roosevelt

Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.

Thus when we fondly flatter our desires, Our best conceits do prove the greatest liars. (The Barons' Wars)
View quotes by Michael Drayton

True, we love life, not because we are used to living, but because we are used to loving. There is always some madness in love, but there is also always some reason in madness. [Thus Spoke Zarathustra from the Chapter 'Of Reading and Writing']
View quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche

When all is done and said, in the end thus shall you find, He most of all doth bathe in bliss that hath a quiet mind; And, clearfrom worldly cares, to deem can be content The sweetest time in all his life in thinking to be spent. (The Pleasures of Thinking 1576)
View quotes by Lord Vaux

Thus the metric system did not really catch on in the States, unless you count the increasing popularity of the nine-millimeter bullet.
View quotes by Dave Barry

The finest qualities of our nature, like the bloom on fruits, can be preserved only by the most delicate handling. Yet we do not treat ourselves nor one another thus tenderly.
View quotes by Henry David Thoreau

The most essential factor is persistence - the determination never to allow your energy or enthusiasm to be dampened by the discouragement that must inevitably come.
View quotes by James Whitcomb Riley

The true meaning of religion is thus, not simply morality, but morality touched by emotion.
View quotes by Matthew Arnold

Fires can't be made with dead embers, nor can enthusiasm be stirred by spiritless men. Enthusiasm in our daily work lightens effort and turns even labor into pleasant tasks.
View quotes by James Baldwin

Thus the metric system did not really catch on in the States, unless you count the increasing popularity of the nine-millimeter bullet.
View quotes by Dave Barry

Latins are tenderly enthusiastic. In Brazil they throw flowers at you. In Argentina they throw themselves.
View quotes by Marlene Dietrich

Apathy can be overcome by enthusiasm, and enthusiasm can only be aroused by two things: first, an ideal, with takes the imagination by storm, and second, a definite intelligible plan for carrying that ideal into practice.
View quotes by Arnold Toynbee

Treat those who are good with goodness, and also treat those who are not good with goodness. Thus goodness is attained. Be honest to those who are honest, and be also honest to those who are not honest. Thus honesty is attained...

View quotes by Lao Tzu

It is essential to seek out enemy agents who have come to conduct espionage against you and to bribe them to serve you. Give them instructions and care for them. Thus doubled agents are recruited and used.
View quotes by Sun Tzu

Faith is an excitement and an enthusiasm: it is a condition of intellectual magnificence to which we must cling as to a treasure, and not squander on our way through life in the small coin of empty words, or in exact and priggish argument.
View quotes by George Sand

Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.
View quotes by Arnold Schwarzenegger

Enthusiasm... the sustaining power of all great action.
View quotes by Samuel Smiles

It is energy - the central element of which is will - that produces the miracle that is enthusiasm in all ages. Everywhere it is what is called force of character and the sustaining power of all great action.
View quotes by Samuel Smiles

Art has two constant, two unending concerns: It always meditates on death and thus always creates life. All great, genuine art resembles and continues the Revelation of St John
View quotes by Boris Pasternak

Your enthusiasm will be infectious, stimulating and attractive to others. They will love you for it. They will go for you and with you.
View quotes by Norman Vincent Peale

Cushion the painful effects of hard blows by keeping the enthusiasm going strong, even if doing so requires struggle.
View quotes by Norman Vincent Peale

What another would have done as well as you, do not do it. What another would have said as well as you, do not say it; what another would have written as well, do not write it. Be faithful to that which exists nowhere but in yourself-and thus make yourself indispensable.
View quotes by André Gide

Thus Dante's motto over Inferno applies with equal force to marriage: 'Ye who enter here leave all hope behind.'

View quotes by Mary McCarthy

The liberty of the individual must be thus far limited; he must not make himself a nuisance to other people.
