Wonder rather than doubt is the root of all knowledge.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
How wrong it is for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself.
Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one's own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.
John F. Kennedy
I take rejection as someone blowing a bugle in my ear to wake me up and get going, rather than retreat.
What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.
I'm convinced of this: Good done anywhere is good done everywhere. For a change, start by speaking to people rather than walking by them like they're stones that don't matter. As long as you're breathing, it's never too late to do some good.
Rather be dead than cool.
Rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love.
Neil Patrick Harris
The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in its value.
Charles Dudley Warner
For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person's life at a given moment.
Viktor E. Frankl
I invite everyone to chose forgiveness rather than division, teamwork over personal ambition.
If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.
John D. Rockefeller
I learned a long time ago that some people would rather die than forgive. It's a strange truth, but forgiveness is a painful and difficult process. It's not something that happens overnight. It's an evolution of the heart.
Sue Monk Kidd
The tragedy of life is often not in our failure, but rather in our complacency; not in our doing too much, but rather in our doing too little; not in our living above our ability, but rather in our living below our capacities.
Benjamin E. Mays
Always say 'yes' to the present moment... Surrender to what is. Say 'yes' to life - and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you.
We should not say that one man's hour is worth another man's hour, but rather that one man during an hour is worth just as much as another man during an hour. Time is everything, man is nothing: he is at the most time's carcass.
Live one day at a time emphasizing ethics rather than rules.
I would rather have been shot straight-up in cold blood-but to be set up? By people who you trusted? That's bad.
Art does not reproduce what we see; rather, it makes us see.
I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done.
My identity was a big issue when I was a teenager, and I had a lot of questions, like: 'Who am I?' 'Who do I belong to?' But when I was still quite young, I decided that belonging is a tough process in life, and I'd better say I belonged to myself and the world rather than belonging to one nationality or another.
The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.
In centering prayer, the sacred word is not the object of the attention but rather the expression of the intention of the will.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
