Artist's Description

ON SACRIFICE:

Gentleness, self-sacrifice and generosity are the exclusive possession of no one race or religion.
Mohandas Gandhi

The progress of an artist is a continual self-sacrifice, a continual extinction of personality.
T. S. Eliot

For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice – no paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.
John Burroughs

Artists must be sacrificed to their art. Like bees, they must put their lives into the sting they give.
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Loyalty and devotion lead to bravery. Bravery leads to the spirit of self-sacrifice. The spirit of self-sacrifice creates trust in the power of love.
Morihei Ueshiba

“Whatever you do, make it an offering to me — the food you eat, the sacrifices you make, the help you give, even your suffering.”
Bhagavad Gita quotes

The sacrifice which causes sorrow to the doer of the sacrifice is no sacrifice. Real sacrifice lightens the mind of the doer and gives him a sense of peace and joy. The Buddha gave up the pleasures of life because they had become painful to him.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Peace demands the most heroic labor and the most difficult sacrifice. It demands greater heroism than war. It demands greater fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect purity of conscience.”
Thomas Merton

“Forgivness is The ultimate sacrifice.
Eloquence belongs, To the conqueror.”
AmazinM Serj Tankian quotes

“Sacrifice, which is the passion of great souls, has never been the law of societies.”
Henri Frederic Amiel

The world will never have lasting peace so long as men reserve for war the finest human qualities. Peace, no less than war, requires idealism and self-sacrifice and a righteous and dynamic faith.
John Foster Dulles

As soon as sacrifice becomes a duty and necessity to mankind. I see no limit to the horizon which opens before him.
Author: Ernest Renan

In this world it is not what we take up, but what we give up, that makes us rich.
Author: Henry Ward Beecher

Self-sacrifice is never entirely unselfish, for the giver never fails to receive.
Dolores E. Mcguire
