Money is a big part of your life, and when you learn how to get your finances under control, all areas of your life will soar.
T. Harv Eker
La, tout n’est qu’ordre et beauté Luxe, calme et volupté There, there is nothing else but grace and measure, Richness, quietness, and pleasure.
Charles Baudelaire
‘Fall Of A City’ aims to convey, in all its emotional richness, the effects of war and the toll taken on city and family by the horrors of siege.
David Farr
I breathe in the fullness and richness of life.
Louise Hay
I never in a million bazillion trillion years imagined that my life would have this many layers of love and richness.
The by-product is that they more people you help, the “richer” you become, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and definitely financially.
T. Harv Eker
It may be said that it is with our thoughts as with our flowers. Those whose expression is simple carry their seed with them; those that are double by their richness and pomp charm the mind, but produce nothing.
Joseph Joubert
We have captured a luxury and richness with our fur-free fur, which is proof to the fashion industry that killing animals for the sake of fashion is unnecessary.
Stella McCartney
Organisms are not billiard balls, propelled by simple and measurable external forces to predictable new positions on life’s pool table. Sufficiently complex systems have greater richness. Organisms have a history that constrains their future in myriad, subtle ways.
Stephen Jay Gould
It’s important for me to show my children the richness of life and be a role model. I find that my organizational and management skills are tested more at home than at work!
Susan Wojcicki
Language fails not because thought fails, but because no verbal symbols can do justice to the fullness and richness of thought. Ifwe are to continue talking about “data” in any other sense than as reflective distinctions, the original datum is always such a qualitative whole.
John Dewey
We speak continually of saving time, but time in its richness is most often lost to us when we are busy without relief.
David Whyte
We must not only learn to tolerate our differences. We must welcome them as the richness and diversity which can lead to true intelligence.
Albert Einstein
If a child never sees the stars, never has meaningful encounters with other species, never experiences the richness of nature, what happens to that child?
Richard Louv
Some people get rich studying artificial intelligence. Me, I make money studying natural stupidity.
Carl Icahn
Any experience, however, trivial in its first appearance, is capable of assuming an indefinite richness of significance by extending its range of perceived connections.
John Dewey
Sometimes at night I slipped into the studio and worked myself up into a rhythmic intoxication to come closer to the slowly rising character. I could feel how everything pointed toward a clearly defined dance figure. The richness of rhythmic ideas was overwhelming
Mary Wigman
The needs of mankind are universal. Our means of meeting them create the richness and diversity of the planet. The Montessori child should come to relish the texture of that diversity.
Maria Montessori
In my 20s, as I began to travel in Europe, I found comfort in religious paintings. Even though my own belief in Catholic dogma had been shaken and weakened, I found that the beauty and the richness of the art still held me.
Colm Toibin
Moira sacrificed all that she had and all the richness of life that still lay in front of her in order to save just one more person. Moira was killed when the south tower collapsed … Today, we choose to remember and share the joy Moira brought to all of us, and we vow that she will always live in our hearts.
James Smith
Animals! the object of insatiable interest, examples of the riddle of life, created, as it were, to reveal the human being to man himself, displaying his richness and complexity in a thousand kaleidoscopic possibilities, each of them brought to some curious end, to some characteristic exuberance.
Bruno Schulz
Being rich isn’t about money. Being rich is a state of mind. Some of us, no matter how much money we have, will never be free enough to take time to stop and eat the heart of the watermelon. And some of us will be rich without ever being more than a paycheck ahead of the game.
Harvey Mackay
Where money is an idol, to be poor is a sin.
William Stringfellow
In the life of husband and wife together, fatherhood and motherhood represent such a sublime “novelty” and richness as can only be approached “on one’s knees”.
Pope John Paul II
Acoustic phonetics, which is developing and increasing in richness very rapidly, already enables us to solve many of the mysteries of sound, mysteries which motor phonetics could not even begin to solve.
Roman Jakobson
Your richness is on your ability to share and not in how much you have.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
When a man begins to perceive the love of God in all its richness, he begins also to love his neighbor with spiritual perception. This is the love of which all the scriptures speak.
Diadochos of Photiki
Grief is the natural by-product of love. One cannot selflessly love another person and not grieve at his suffering or eventual death. The only way to avoid the grief would be to not experience the love; and it is love that gives life its richness and meaning.
Lance B. Wickman
In the ’60s when I was a student, there was this campaign to destroy 75 percent of the old buildings in Paris, replacing them with modern architecture. I realized this as a dangerous utopia. This modern vision did not understand the richness of the city. Thankfully, such destruction did not happen.
Christian de Portzamparc
People can only live fully by helping others to live. When you give life to friends you truly live. Cultures can only realize their further richness by honoring other traditions. And only by respecting natural life can humanity continue to exist.
Daisaku Ikeda
My idea of rich is that you can buy every book you ever want without looking at the price and you’re never around assholes. That’s the two things to really fight for in life.
John Waters
The number and richness of man’s signifiers always surpasses the set of defined objects that could be termed signifieds. The symbolic function must always precede its object and does not encounter reality except when it precedes it into the imaginary.
Maurice Merleau-Ponty
There’s a reason we seperate Church and State. The reason for the richness and the diversity of religion in this nation is because of the seperation of Church and State, and there are people out there who can’t wait to make this nation a nation of one religion… THEIR religion.
Phil Donahue
Lust is a poor, weak, whimpering, whispering thing compared with that richness and energy of desire which will arise when lust has been killed.
C. S. Lewis
Ethnic diversity adds richness to a society.
Gary Locke
For me, chess is at the same time a game, a sport, a science and an art. And perhaps even more than that,. There is someting hard to explain to those who do not know the game well. One must first learn to play it correctly in order to savor its richness.
Bent Larsen
Begin to build up confidence and joy in your own richness. That richness is the essence of generosity. It is the essence of resourcefulness ; that you can deal with whatever is available around you and not feel poverty stricken.
