Testing Quotes

We hope you find inspiration in these Testing Quotes from our large collection of quotes.

When does a belief bring out the best in you?
When does a belief hold you prisoner to yesterday
and limit your options for designing a great future?
Test your beliefs with as much objectivity
as you can bring to the subject.
Be willing to let go of those beliefs
that represent your parents' opinions,
or your communities opinions, rather than your own.
Those beliefs that withstand rigorous testing,
should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Testing oneself is best when done alone.
- Jimmy Carter

Building technical systems involves a lot of hard work

languages and protocols,
coding and debugging, testing and refactoring.

Eternity:
I am drawn to the wild edge of the ocean of my being
My curiosity unbound, I test the limits

I walk the path - the way - the way of ways -
to the end which is not an end.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life is a journey. It is not a race to test

as the days slowly move past in dress review.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The difference between school and life?

Real love is never a selfish emotion.
If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.
True love is about wanting happiness for the person you love -
and not about seeking happiness for yourself.
Fortunately, in most cases our own loving presence
is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It is not our place to know the mind of God.
Spirit knows what is best in the long run -
best for each of us individually,

when we see war and disease in the world
and experience physical and emotional suffering
in ourselves, our family, and our friends.
I consider this belief in God's infinite power
and ultimate wisdom to be the true test of faith.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

we just need to maintain our goodness to regain it.

brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.
