Resistance Quotes

When mental energy is allowed to follow the line of least resistance and to fall into easy channels, it is called weakness

James Allen

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear

Mark Twain

Our cause, then, must be intrusted to, and conducted by, its own undoubted friends-those whose hands are free, whose hearts are in the work-who do care for the result. Two years ago the Republicans of the nation mustered over thirteen hundred thousand strong. We did this under the single impulse of resistance to a common danger, with every external circumstance against us. Of strange, discordant, and even, hostile elements, we gathered from the four winds, and formed and fought the battle through, under the constant hot fire of a disciplined, proud, and pampered enemy. Did we brave all then to falter now?-now when that same enemy is wavering, dissevered, and belligerent? The result is not doubtful. We shall not fail-if we stand firm, we shall not fail. Wise councils may accelerate or mistakes delay it, but, sooner or later, the victory is sure to come

Abraham Lincoln

Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it

Nadia Boulanger

Your economy has always been about the exchange of human energy: As contrast produces a new idea within any human consciousness, the Nonphysical Energy to supply it flows forth. The economy expands proportionate to the idea. There is no shortage of anything. Those who believe there is shortage, hold themselves over in this place where they disallow the Energy from flowing to them. And so, in their resistance, they have it not. And then they say, "I am proof that there is shortage. And that man over there that is awash in money is the reason I don't have any." He has nothing to do with your shortage. He is evidence that there is an abundance.

Abraham

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance. Never settle for the path of least resistance. Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin'. Lovin might be a mistake but it's worth makin

Lee Ann Womack

Through the years of experience I have found that air offers less resistance than dirt.

Jack Nicklaus

By willing endurance we cause suffering to pass. Evil becomes a spent force when we put up no resistance. By refusing to pay back the enemy with his own coin, and preferring to suffer without resistance, the Christian exhibits the sinfulness of contumely and insult. Violence stands condemned by its failure to evoke counter-violence.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

An army ought to be ready every moment to offer all the resistance of which it is capable.

Napoleon Bonaparte

The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive

Thomas Jefferson

Suffering had struck that stage empress; and she stood before her audience neither yielding to, nor enduring, nor in finite measure, resenting it: she stood locked in struggle, rigid in resistance. She stood, not dressed, but draped in pale antique folds, long and regular like sculpture. A background and entourage and flooring of deepest crimson threw her out, white like alabaster like silver: rather, be it said, like Death.

Charlotte Bront

The force of the blow depends on the resistance. It is sometimes better not to struggle against temptation. Either fly or yield at once.

Francis Herbert Bradley

Resistance to the organized mass can be effected only by the man who is as well organized in his individuality as the mass itself.

Carl Jung

If it feels like discouragement, fear, uneasiness, frustration, if it feels like anger -- that's what it means. That scarcity feeling has all those feelings wrapped through it. They are all indicators of some resistance within you. What those feelings are actually saying is, "Ah, as I'm feeling this thing that I'm calling scarcity, I'm a vibrational mismatch to the abundance that I want. I want abundance, but I'm not vibrating there. So as I reach for the thought that feels better, reach for the thought that feels better... so that those negative emotions subside, now I'm no longer resisting. I'm allowing. I've lined up the Energy within me."

Abraham

It's the constant and determined effort that breaks down all resistance and sweeps away all obstacles.

Claude M. Bristol
