Peace is not the product of a victory or a command. It has no finishing line, no final deadline, no fixed definition of #achievement. Peace is a never-ending process, the work of many decisions.
Every great work, every big accomplishment, has been brought into manifestation through holding to the vision, and often just before the big #achievement, comes apparent failure and discouragement.
Mere longevity is a good thing for those who watch Life from the side lines. For those who play the game, an hour may be a year, a single day’s work an #achievement for eternity.
Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the #achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.
Yale is a crucible in American life for the accommodation of intellectual #achievement, of wisdom, of refinement, with the democratic ideals of openness, of social justice and of equal opportunity.
Contemplation and wisdom are highest #achievements and man is not totally at home with them.
The final wisdom of life requires not the annulment of incongruity but the #achievement of serenity within and above it.
Those who improve with age embrace the power of personal growth and personal #achievement and begin to replace youth with wisdom, innocence with understanding, and lack of purpose with self-actualization.
You must accept responsibility for your actions, but not the credit for your #achievements.
If you call failures experiments, you can put them in your resume and claim them as #achievements.
It is no great art to say something briefly when, like Tacitus, one has something to say when one has nothing to say, however, and none the less writes a whole book and makes truth into a liar - that I call an #achievement.
Though men are apt to flatter and exalt themselves with their great #achievements, yet these are, in truth, very often owing not so much to design as chance.
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of #achievement.
The greatest #achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.
But the first the general public learned about the discovery was the news of the destruction of Hiroshima by the atom bomb. A splendid #achievement of science and technology had turned malign. Science became identified with death and destruction.
And I have lived since - as you have - in a period of cold war, during which we have ensured by our #achievements in the science and technology of destruction that a third act in this tragedy of war will result in the peace of extinction.
To make the moral #achievement implicit in science a source of strength to civilization, the scientist will have to have the cooperation also of the philosopher and the religious teacher.
I do think we know that a teacher who knows what he or she is doing, knows their subject matter, and knows how to impart knowledge to kids is a critical piece of closing the #achievement gap.
I believe that the testing of the student’s #achievements in order to see if he meets some criterion held by the teacher, is directly contrary to the implications of therapy for significant learning.
Badges mean nothing in themselves, but they mark a certain #achievement and they are a link between the rich and the poor. For when one girl sees a badge on a sister Scout’s arm, if that girl has won the same badge, it at once awakens an interest and sympathy between them.
Thought is the original source of all wealth, all success, all material gain, all great discoveries and inventions, and of all #achievement.
But no nation can base its survival and development on luck and prayers alone while its leadership fritters away every available opportunity for success and concrete #achievement.
Think little goals and expect little #achievements. Think big goals and win big success.
Personal relationships are the fertile soil from which all advancement, all success, all #achievement in real life grows.
Think of success as a game of chance in which you have control over the odds. As you begin to master concepts in personal #achievement, you are increasing your odds of achieving success.
#achievement is not always success, while reputed failure often is. It is honest endeavor, persistent effort to do the best possible under any and all circumstances.
A constant struggle, a ceaseless battle to bring success from inhospitable surroundings, is the price of all great #achievements.
