The effort to calculate exactly what the voters want at each particular moment leaves out of account the fact that when they are troubled the thing the voters most want is to be told what to want.

- Lippmann, Walter

It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.

- Roosevelt, Theodore

The abominable effort to take one's sins with one to paradise.

- Gide, Andre
6.

For the great mass of mankind, the only saving grace needed is a steady fidelity to what is nearest to hand and heart for the short moment of each human effort.

- Joseph Conrad
7.

In quiet and untroubled times it seems to every administrator that it is only by his efforts that the whole population under his rule is kept going, and in this consciousness of being indispensable every administrator finds the chief reward of his labor and efforts. While the sea of history remains calm the ruler-administrator in his frail bark, holding on with a boat hook to the ship of the people and himself moving, naturally imagines that his efforts move the ship he is holding on to. But as soon as a storm arises and the sea begins to heave and the ship to move, such a delusion is no longer possible. The ship moves independently with its own enormous motion, the boat hook no longer reaches the moving vessel, and suddenly the administrator, instead of appearing a ruler and a source of power, becomes an insignificant, useless, feeble man.

- Tolstoy, Count Leo
8.

champions know there are no shortcuts to the top. They climb the mountain one step at a time. they have no use for helicopters!

- Adler, Judi
9.

Fanaticism consists in redoubling your efforts when you have forgotten your aim.

- Santayana, George
10.

Take death for example. A great deal of our effort goes into avoiding it. We make extraordinary efforts to delay it, and often consider its intrusion a tragic event. Yet weĈd find it hard to live without it. Death gives meaning to our lives. It gives importance and value to time. Time would become meaningless if there were too much of it.

- Ray Kurzweil
11.

In the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding on the back of the tiger ended up inside.

- Kennedy, John F.
12.

Some men give up their designs when they have almost reached the goal; While others, on the contrary, obtain a victory by exerting, at the last moment, more vigorous efforts than ever before.

- Herodotus
13.

Civilization is nothing more than the effort to reduce the use of force to the last resort.

- Gasset, Jose Ortega Y
14.

You have to accept whatever comes and the only important thing is that you meet it with the best you have to give.

- Roosevelt, Eleanor
15.

Infatuated, half through conceit, half through love of my art, I achieve the impossible working as no one else ever works.

- Dumas, Alexandre
16.

It takes more time and effort and delicacy to learn the silence of a people than to learn its sounds. Some people have a special gift for this. Perhaps this explains why some missionaries, notwithstanding their efforts, never come to speak properly, to communicate delicately through silences. Although they speak with the accent of natives they remain forever thousands of miles away. The learning of the grammar of silence is an art much more difficult to learn than the grammar of sounds.

- Illich, Ivan
17.

I claim to be an average man of less than average ability. I have not the shadow of a doubt that any man or woman can achieve what I have, if he or she would make the same effort and cultivate the same hope and faith.

- Gandhi, Mahatma
18.

The grass may be greener on the other side of the fence, but you still have to mow it.

19.

The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact.

- George Orwell
20.

Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.

- Sivananda, Sri Swami
