Objects Quotes

Nature cannot be tricked or cheated. She will give up to you the object of your struggles only after you have paid her price.

Napoleon Hill

George Bernard Shaw

There is no object so soft but it makes a hub for the wheeled universe.

Walt Whitman

In all human affairs there are efforts, and there are results, and the strength of the effort is the measure of the result. Chance is not. Gifts, powers, material, intellectual, and spiritual possessions are the fruits of effort; they are thoughts completed, objects accomplished, visions realized. The Vision that you glorify in your mind, the Ideal that you enthrone in your heart this you will build your life by, this you will become.

James Allen

Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis

He transforms all concepts into incommunicable, solidified objects. To refute him is to become contaminated with unreality.

Jorge Luis Borges
