Ability Quotes

You are educated when you have the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or self-confidence.

Robert Frost

An individual's self-concept is the core of his personality. It affects every aspect of human behavior: the ability to learn, the capacity to grow and change. A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life.

Dr. Joyce Brothers

Maturity is the ability to think, speak and act your feelings within the bounds of dignity. The measure of your maturity is how spiritual you become during the midst of your frustrations.

Samuel Ullman

Never underestimate your problem or your ability to deal with it.

Robert H. Schuller

Creativity is essentially a lonely art. An even lonelier struggle. To some a blessing. To others a curse. It is in reality the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul an idea.

Lou Dorfsman

Your ability to use the principle of autosuggestion will depend, very largely, upon your capacity to concentrate upon a given desire until that desire becomes a burning obsession.

Napoleon Hill

I choose not to place "DIS", in my ability.

Robert M. Hensel

Let us consider what we call vicious luxury. No gratification, however sensual, can of itself be esteemed vicious. A gratification is only vicious when it engrosses all a man's expense, and leaves no ability for such acts of duty and generosity as are required by his situation and fortune. The same care and toil that raise a dish of peas at Christmas would give bread to a whole family during six months.

David Hume

Fran Lebowitz

Heywood Broun

One can be a true believer in anything: psychic ability, Christianity or, as Bertrand Russell classically suggested (with irony), in the fact there is a teapot orbiting the earth.

There are people who have the ability to wake up a minute or even seconds before their alarm goes off or to know what time theyve woken up without even looking at a clock. Now, thank God, I dont have to get up in the mornings but the potential of the body to keep such accurate time is remarkable.

Derren Victor Brown

Concentration is the ability to think about absolutely nothing when it is absolutely necessary.

Ray Knight

There isnt an executioner who isnt scared of turning victim one day, nor is there the sorriest victim who would not acknowledge (if only to himself) a mental ability to become an executioner.
