ASPIRATION Quotes

Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations.
I may not reach them but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow them.
-- Louisa May Alcott

Why are we so zealous, then, about the private sector? We persist in designating a large part of the economy as private so that we can disavow public responsibility for its evils and claim individual merit for its blessings. As a civic body, we are reluctant to countenance and cure the deprivations of the poor, the damage to the environment, and the trivialization of culture that are the depressing concomitants of our advanced industrial economy. At the same time applauding the rich and powerful who claim their privileges as the fruits of their rugged and individual efforts, we sanction our positions and our aspirations
-- Albert Borgmann

 

In the globalized world that is ours, maybe we are moving towards a global village, but that global village brings in a lot of different people, a lot of different ideas, lots of different backgrounds, lots of different aspirations. I think respect and understanding will help that village function better than it does today.
-- Lakhdar Brahimi

* "If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals."
-- Albert Einstein

* "If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals."
-- Albert Einstein

Our movement is of the working people, for the working people, by the working people. . . . There is not a right too long denied to which we do not aspire in order to achieve; there is not a wrong too long endured that we are not determined to abolish.
-- Samuel Gompers

Once again a new world view is arising ... This idea is the culmination of all human history. It holds the promise of fulfilling the great aspirations of the past and heralds the advent of the next phase of our evolution. It is the idea of conscious evolution." -- Barbara Marx Hubbard

There has always been a longing in the human heart for a more just, free, loving and creative society. But it was never before possible to fulfill these aspirations, because we had neither the evolutionary drivers and global crises to force us to change, nor did we have the scientific and technological powers that can free us from the limitations of scarcity, poverty, disease, and ignorance. This is the time of awakening for the social potential movement. -- Barbara Marx Hubbard

Once again a new world view is arising ... This idea is the culmination of all human history. It holds the promise of fulfilling the great aspirations of the past and heralds the advent of the next phase of our evolution. It is the idea of conscious evolution."
-- Barbara Marx Hubbard

Your hopes, dreams and aspirations are legitimate.
They are trying to take you airborne, above the clouds, above the storms, if you only let them.
--William James

* Let us today seek to find that place within each of us where dreams are made, where our highest aspirations take shape. Let us confirm the power of our humanity by giving architecture and substance to the dreams we have for our nation, so that the promised land of social and economic justice that is within our dreams will soon be within our sight.
-- Dennis Kucinich

We need to build millions of little moments of caring on an individual level. Indeed, as talk of a politics of meaning becomes more widespread, many people will feel it easier to publicly acknowledge their own spiritual and ethical aspirations and will allow themselves to give more space to their highest vision in their personal interactions with others. A politics of meaning is as much about these millions of small acts as it is about any larger change. The two necessarily go hand in hand.
-- Rabbi Michael Lerner

"If we confuse dissent with disloyalty — if we deny the right of the individual to be wrong, unpopular, eccentric or unorthodox — if we deny the essence of racial equality then hundreds of millions in Asia and Africa who are shopping about for a new allegiance will conclude that we are concerned to defend a myth and our present privileged status. Every act that denies or limits the freedom of the individual in this country costs us the. . . confidence of men and women who aspire to that freedom and independence of which we speak and for which our ancestors fought."
-- Edward R. Murrow

* We develop our beautiful planet in such a way that we brush aside the species… we risk creating a wasteland, where our aspirations will ultimately wither and die"
-- Queen Noor of Jordan

Peace - the word evokes the simplest and most cherished dream of humanity. Peace is, and has always been, the ultimate human aspiration. And yet our history overwhelmingly shows that while we speak incessantly of peace, our actions tell a very different story.
-- Javier Perez de Cuellar

Nonviolence, pacifism, that's the greatest thing that I think the human species has to aspire to,
because otherwise it's not going to be around.
-- Martin Scorsese

“Life is short. Time is fleeting. Realize the Self.
Purity of the heart is the gateway to God. Aspire. Renounce. Meditate.
Be good; do good. Be kind; be compassionate. Inquire, know Thyself.”
-- Swami Sivananda

If a man constantly aspires is he not elevated?
-- Henry David Thoreau
