Sailing a boat calls for quick action, a blending of feeling with the wind and water as well as with the very heart and soul of the boat itself. Sailing teaches alertness and courage, and gives in return a joyousness and peace that but few sports afford.
George Matthew Adams
Pilots have their names painted just beneath the canopy of their aircraft. This gives the pilot a sense of ownership for his or her jet. What's more, like cars, each aircraft has its own personality, so it's important for a pilot to get to know and love his aircraft.
With Malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds.
Here is the amazing thing about Easter; the Resurrection Sunday for Christians is this, that Christ in the dying moments on the cross gives us the greatest illustration of forgiveness possible.
T. D. Jakes
Art gives people a reason to be alive.
The Italians and Spanish, the Chinese and Vietnamese see food as part of a larger, more essential and pleasurable part of daily life. Not as an experience to be collected or bragged about - or as a ritual like filling up a car - but as something else that gives pleasure, like sex or music, or a good nap in the afternoon.
We're not like robots. God promises to guide us through the Holy Spirit, but He gives us the freedom to make our own decisions.
Being smarter gives you a tailwind throughout life. People who are more intelligent earn more, live longer, get divorced less, are less likely to get addicted to alcohol and tobacco, and their children live longer.
Struggle is strengthening. Battling with evil gives us the power to battle evil even more.
A beautiful thing never gives so much pain as does failing to hear and see it.
A person, who no matter how desperate the situation, gives others hope, is a true leader.
The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.
I've always tried to explain democracy is not perfect. But it gives you a chance to shape your own destiny.
Aung San Suu Kyi
The artist makes things concrete and gives them individuality.
Military dictatorship is born from the power of the gun, and so it undermines the concept of the rule of law and gives birth to a culture of might, a culture of weapons, violence and intolerance.
Wherever you see a man who gives someone else's corruption, someone else's prejudice as a reason for not taking action himself, you see a cog in The Machine that governs us.
John Jay Chapman
Nothing gives me quite so much joy as when people tell me they've had their pets spayed or neutered.
Laying tracks gives you freedom without being too obvious.
Theatre gives you wings as an actor.
There is something vulnerable about showing your tattoos to people, even while it gives you a feeling that you are wearing a sleeve when you are naked.
Fine dining teaches you how to cook many different things, and it gives you the basic fundamentals, but these specialty restaurants, they're not teaching you the broad foundation you need to become a well-rounded cook.
Social media gives one a family to share one's life with.
He who gives what he would as readily throw away, gives without generosity; for the essence of generosity is in self sacrifice.
Corporal punishment is as humiliating for him who gives it as for him who receives it; it is ineffective besides. Neither shame nor physical pain have any other effect than a hardening one.
I meet people in my daily life, people who seem to experience some change and some growth on a personal level, and that gives me hope.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
