I believe we will have better government when men and women discuss public issues together and make their decisions on the basis of their differing areas of concern for the welfare of their families and their world. Too often the great decisions are originated and given form in bodies made up wholly of men or so completely dominated by them that whatever of special value women have to offer is shunted aside without expression.
Eleanor Roosevelt quotes
To be curious about that which is not one's concern while still in ignorance of oneself is ridiculous.
My chief concern is to try to be an humble, earnest Christian.
Robert E. Lee quotes
The truly proud man knows neither superiors nor inferiors. The first he does not admit of; the last he does not concern himself about.
William Hazlitt quotes
In faith and hope the world will disagree, but all mankind's concern is charity. .
Alexander The Great quotes
We should all be concerned about the future because we will have to live the rest of our lives there.
Charles F. Kettering quotes
I would like to explain the meaning of compassion, which is often misunderstood. Genuine compassion is based not on our own projections and expectations, but rather on the rights of the other: irrespective of whether another person is a close friend or an enemy, as long as that person wishes for peace and happiness and wishes to overcome suffering, then on that basis we develop genuine concern for his or her problem. This is genuine compassion. Usually when we are concerned about a close friend, we call this compassion. This is not compassion; it is attachment. Even in marriage, those marriages that last only a short time do so because of attachment although it is generally present but because there is also compassion. Marriages that last only a short time do so because of a lack of compassion; there is only emotional attachment based on projection and expectation. When the only bond between close friends is attachment, then even a minor issue may cause ones projections to change. As soon as our projections change, the attachment disappears because that attachment was based solely on projection and expectation. It is possible to have compassion without attachment and similarly, to have anger without hatred. Therefore we need to clarify the distinctions between compassion and attachment, and between anger and hatred. Such clarity is useful in our daily life and in our efforts towards world peace. I consider these to be basic spiritual values for the happiness of all human beings, regardless of whether one is a believer or a nonbeliever.
Dalai Lama quotes
Concern should drive us into action, not into a depression.
For a community to be whole and healthy, it must be based on people's love and concern for each other.
Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.
