activity

Helping is less a task-oriented activity than an indication of a way of living and being. - David A. Brandon
Beautiful is the activity that works for good, and the stillness that waits for good; blessed the self-sacrifice that waits for good; blessed the self-sacrifice of the one, and the self-forgetfulness of the other. - Robert Collyer
Only those who know the supremacy of the intellectual life - the life which has a seed of ennobling thought and purpose within it - can understand the grief of one who falls from the serene activity into the absorbing soul wasting struggle. - George Eliot, pen name of Mary Ann or Marian Evans
I am fully convinced that the soul is indestructible, and that its activity will continue through eternity. It is like the sun, which, to our eyes, seems to set at night; but it has in reality only gone to diffuse its light elsewhere. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Adoration is an activity of the loving, but still separate individuality. Contemplation is the state of union with the divine Ground of all being. The highest prayer is the most passive. Inevitably; for the less there is of self, the more there is of God. - Aldous Leonard Huxley
Deliverance is out of time into eternity, and is achieved by obedience and docility to the eternal Nature of Things. We have been given free will, in order that we may will our self-will out of existence and so come to live continuously in a “state of grace.” All our actions must be directed, in the last analysis, to making ourselves passive in relation to the activity and the being of divine Reality. We are, as it were, aeolian harps, endowed with the power either to expose themselves to the wind of the Spirit or to shut themselves away from it. - Aldous Leonard Huxley
Love is not primarily a relationship to a specific person... Love is an attitude which determines how we relate to the world... Love is an activity of our spirit... Loving others is impossible until we love ourselves. - Richard and Mary-Alice Jafolla
Sorrow is the mere rust of the soul. Activity will cleanse and brighten it. -
Life is a short day; but it is a working day. Activity may lead to evil, but inactivity cannot lead to good. - Alberto Moravia, Pen name of Alberto Pincherle
All human activity is prompted by desire. -
