Without passion, you don't have energy; without energy, you have nothing. Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion.
It is not the clear-sighted who rule the world.Great achievements are accomplished in a blessed, warm fog.Constantinus

Thus first necessity invented stools, Convenience next suggested elbow-chairs, And luxury the accomplished sofa last.william cowper
I recorded Jimmy Page and Leona Lewis performing Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin together... For me there were several moments that still seem a little unreal [like] realising just how technically and musically accomplished Leona Lewis is as an artist. I've not worked with many singers in the pop world who can discuss coloratura technique, and operas by Purcell and Bellini. [...] Leona can really sing with heart and soul, balanced with quite astounding technique.leona lewis
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.james allen
Forgetfulness, the unhistorical, is … the atmosphere, in which alone life can come into being. In order to understand it, let us imagine a youth who is seized with a passion for a woman, or a man who is swayed by a passion for his work. In both cases what lies behind them has ceased to exist and yet this state (the most unhistorical that can be imagined) is that in which every action, every great deed is conceived and accomplished.georg brandes
If anybody asks me what I have accomplished, I will say all I have accomplished is that I have written a few good sentences.Eric Hoffer
To accomplish anything whatsoever one must have standards. None have yet accomplished anything without them.mozi
For it seems that long before the first enterprising man bent some twigs into a leaky roof, many animals were already accomplished builders.Bernard Rudofsky
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.dale carnegie
I am never content with what I have [accomplished]. Jimmy reminded me of those less fortunate than I, people out there who are struggling just to survive.newton lee
I have accomplished more toward solving the Armenian problem in three months than Abdul Hamid accomplished in thirty years!mehmed talat
Lilienthal’s enthusiastic efforts to arouse others may yet prove his most valuable contribution to the solution of the problem. What one man can do himself directly is but little. If however he can stir up ten others to take up the task he has accomplished much.wilbur wright
It is not the clear-sighted who lead the world. Great achievements are accomplished in a blessed, warm mental fog.joseph conrad
Psychohistory, like psychoanalysis, is a science in which the researcher's feelings are as much or even more a part of his research equipment than his eyes or his hands. [...] Weighing of complex motives can only be accomplished by identification with human actors, the usual suppression of all feeling preached and followed by most "science" simply cripples a psychohistorian as badly as it would cripple a biologist to be forbidden the use of a microscope. The emotional development of a psychohistorian is therefore as much a topic for discussion as his or her intellectual development.lloyd demause
My life’s work has been accomplished. I did all that I could.mikhail gorbachev
Someone sits in a mountain vale A robe of clouds, rainbows for tassels The fragrant forest is the place to live The road has been long and difficult With a heart full of doubt and regret A life has passed and nothing has been accomplished Others call it failure I stand alone devoted to this Cold Mountain lifehan shan
Thus society is born, as something required by nature, and (because this nature is human nature) as something accomplished through a work of reason and will, and freely consented to. Man is a political animal, which means that the human person craves political life, communal life, not only with regard to the family community, but with regard to the civil community.jacques maritain
The major functions of the government are, as in the communist nations, operated by deeply embedded, hopelessly entangled bureaus where nothing is accomplished because the function of the bureau is to intercept every living idea and smother it.gerry spence
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.james allen
The public wants miracles. The public demands miracles; and if one source ceases to provide them, they will turn to another source which seems to accomplish the spectacular. Even while they resented and opposed the scientific attitude, they lapped up the miracles which this attitude accomplished with glee.
All exists here, no doubt, for the delight of existence , all is a game or Lila; but a game too carries within itself an object to be accomplished and without the fulfillment of that object would have no completeness of significance .
If the Purana written by Vyasa were still existing, then it would be honoured as a “Sruti”. In the absence of this Purana and the one written by Lomaharshana, the eighteen Puranas that still exist cannot all be given the same place of honour; among them, the Vishnu and the Bhagwata Purana composed by accomplished yogis are definitely more precious and we must recognise that the Markandeya Purana written by a sage devoted to spiritual pursuits is more profound in Knowledge than either the Shiva or the Agni Purana.
The mission of the Universalist church has been a double one, first to contravert the one-time prevalent idea of an endless hell . This part of the mission has practically been accomplished. … But the second and more important one awaits fulfillment … a fight which shall continue until the real, actual hells, before our very eyes, are destroyed.
Fools... You´ve accomplished nothing! (Odin´s voice in the heavens: Doom!) Odin! You can´t be free! (Odin´s voice in the heavens: Your wretched scheme is undone; and your black soul, is mine!) Nooo!!! (Odin´s voice in the heavens: An eternety of suffering is the fate of those who challenge the gods!)
Had it been published by a voice from heaven, that twelve poor men, taken out of boats and creeks, without any help of learning, should conquer the world to the cross, it might have been thought an illusion against all reason of men; yet we know it was undertaken and accomplished by them.
