To achieve lasting literature, fictional or factual, a writer needs perceptive vision, absorptive capacity, and creative strength.
Lawrence Clark Powell quotes
You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.
Woodrow T. Wilson quotes
Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.
Japanese proverb quotes
When we abolish the slavery of half of humanity, together with the whole system of hypocrisy it implies, then the "division" of humanity will reveal its genuine significance and the human couple will find its true form.
Simone de Beauvoir quotes
This is the true nature of home -- it is the place of Peace; the shelter, not only from injury, but from all terror, doubt and division.
John Ruskin quotes
Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate, or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.
Henry Miller quotes
The leader has to be practical and a realist, yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
Eric Hoffer quotes
Everyone takes the limits of his own vision for the limits of the world.
Arthur Schopenhauer quotes
If you have a vision, do something with it.
Anthony J. D'Angelo quotes
Television has proved that people will look at anything rather than each other.
Ann Landers quotes
