Consequences Of Not Content Quotes

How much more grevious are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.

Marcus Aurelius

In nature there are neither rewards nor punishments - there are consequences.

Robert G Ingersoll 1833

Ideas have consequences, and totally erroneous ideas are likely to have destructive consequences.

Stephen Valentine Patrick William Allen

It appears that mankind in this life are not agents of trial for eternity, but that they will eternally remain agents of trial. To suppose that our eternal circumstances will be unalterably fixed in happiness or misery, in consequence of the agency or transactions of this temporary life, is inconsistent with the moral government of God, and the progressive and retrospective knowledge of the human mind. God has not put it into our power to plunge ourselves into eternal woe and perdition; human liberty is not so extensive, for the term of human life bears no proportion to eternity succeeding it; so that there could be no proportion between a momentary agency, (which is liberty of action,) or probation, and any supposed eternal consequences of happiness or misery resulting from it.

Ethan Allen

I'm a critic. I think the administration has really undermined America's power and reputation and that Iraq may go down in history as the greatest disaster in American foreign policy, which means that I think it's worse than Vietnam in its unintended consequences and for our reputation. This president, because his administration is imposing democracy, which is an oxymoron, has, I think, hurt the concept. It is not just that the administration has been unilateral but that it has been unidimensional. It has paid attention primarily to one part of the world, without enough attention being paid to other parts.

Albright, Madeleine

Submit to Islam and be safe. Or agree to the payment of the Jizya (tax), and you and your people will be under our protection, else you will have only yourself to blame for the consequences, for I bring the men who desire death as ardently as you desire life.

al-Walid, Khalid ibn

My spirit is no longer what it was. Vaguely I seek, everywhere. I must see things with all their consequences, and right to their source. Against all the chains of facts I must have long arguments to bring; and the world's chaos requires an interpretation equally terrible.

Henri Barbusse

Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things... I am tempted to think... there are no little things.

Bruce Fairchild Barton

Remember this central truth. Your enemy is there because he, too, has weighed the consequences of failure and accepts them. Play always to win, because nothing else matters

Alice Borchardt

I dont give advice. I cant tell anybody what to do. Instead I say this is what we know about this problem at this time. And here are the consequences of these actions.

Joyce Brothers

Our moral and economic system is based on individual responsibility. Its based on the idea that people have to live with the consequences of their decisions. This makes them more careful deciders. This means that society tends toward justice people get what they deserve as much as possible.

David Brooks

In magicand in lifethere is only the present moment, the now. You cant measure time the way you measure the distance between two points. Time doesnt pass. We human beings have enormous difficulty in focusing on the present; were always thinking about what we did, about how we could have done it better, about the consequences of our actions, and about why we didnt act as we should have. Or else we think about the future, about what were going to do tomorrow, what precautions we should take, what dangers await us around the next corner, how to avoid what we dont want and how to get what we have always dreamed of.

Paulo Coelho
