Citações Edward Everett Hale

„Sou um só, mas sou um. Não posso realizar tudo, mas posso fazer alguma coisa. E, por ser incapaz de tudo, não vou recusar o pouco que posso fazer.“

—  Edward Everett Hale

I am only one ; But still I am one. I cannot do everything ; But still I can ... I will not refuse to do something that I can do.
citado em "Essentials of English Composition‎" - Página 269, de Horace Sumner Tarbell, Martha Tarbell - Publicado por Ginn & company, 1902 - 281 páginas

„Every day from that day was festival, — century after century. So soon as the world once learned the infinite blessing of Active Love, and stayed it by Faith, and enjoyed it in Hope, there was no danger that the world should unlearn that lesson.
That lesson — if this vision of a possibility prove true — comes to the world by no change of law; by no new revelation, nor other gospel than the world has now. It comes simply as man after man and woman after woman lead such unselfish lives, as all of us see sometimes, as all would be glad to live…“

—  Edward Everett Hale

Ten Times One is Ten (1870)
Contexto: That day the whole world held festival. All schools were dismissed, — all banks and workshops and factories closed, — all "unnecessary labor suspended," as the great salutes and the great chimes came booming out, which announced the agreement of a world of self-forgetting men. That day, do I say? Every day from that day was festival, — century after century. So soon as the world once learned the infinite blessing of Active Love, and stayed it by Faith, and enjoyed it in Hope, there was no danger that the world should unlearn that lesson.

„No matter what happens to you, no matter who flatters you or who abuses you, never look at another flag, never let a night pass but you pray God to bless that flag.“

—  Edward Everett Hale, livro The Man Without a Country

Contexto: No matter what happens to you, no matter who flatters you or who abuses you, never look at another flag, never let a night pass but you pray God to bless that flag. Remember, boy, that behind all these men you have to do with, behind officers, and government, and people even, there is the Country Herself, your Country, and that you belong to Her as you belong to your own mother. Stand by Her, boy, as you would stand by your mother, if those devils there had got hold of her to-day.

„It is the part which contains all that is worth reading.“

—  Edward Everett Hale

Fonte: How To Do It (1871), Ch. IV : How To Write
Contexto: You may divide literature into two great classes of books. The smaller class of the two consists of the books written by people who had something to say. They had in life learned something, or seen something, or done something, which they really wanted and needed to tell to other people. They told it. And their writings make, perhaps, a twentieth part of the printed literature of the world. It is the part which contains all that is worth reading. The other nineteen-twentieths make up the other class.

„Can it be possible that all human sympathies can thrive, and all human powers be exercised, and all human joys increase, if we live with all our might with the thirty or forty people next to us, telegraphing kindly to all other people, to be sure?“

—  Edward Everett Hale, livro The Brick Moon

Contexto: Can it be possible that all human sympathies can thrive, and all human powers be exercised, and all human joys increase, if we live with all our might with the thirty or forty people next to us, telegraphing kindly to all other people, to be sure? Can it be possible that our passion for large cities, and large parties, and large theatres, and large churches, develops no faith nor hope nor love which would not find aliment and exercise in a little "world of our own"?

Statement published in A Year of Beautiful Thoughts‎ (1902) by Jeanie Ashley Bates Greenough, p. 172, Third statement for June 11. This has often been misattributed to Helen Keller in some published works since at least 1980, perhaps because she somewhere quoted it.
Variant:
I am only one,
But still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
The Book of Good Cheer : A Little Bundle of Cheery Thoughts‎ (1909) by Edwin Osgood Grover, p. 28; also in Masterpieces of Religious Verse (1948) by James Dalton Morrison, p. 416, where it is titled "Lend a Hand"
Variante: I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.

„Look up and not down, look forward and not back, look out and not in, and lend a hand!“

—  Edward Everett Hale

Variants of "the Four Mottos":
Look up and not down;
Look out and not in.
Look forward and not back;
Lend a hand!
As used in Our New Crusade (1884)
Look up and not down;
Look forward and not back;
Look out and not in; —
Lend a hand!

„Do you pray for the Senators, Dr. Hale?“

—  Edward Everett Hale

someone asked the chaplain. "No, I look at the Senators and pray for the country."
Reported in Van Wyck Brooks, New England: Indian Summer, 1865–1915 (1940), p. 418, footnote. Another source states: "The celebrated anecdote... is not so unambiguous as it appears... There is no reason to doubt the authenticity of Hale's reply, but it should be understood within a framework of respect for the senators as well as concern for the country. He knew every one of them personally and regarded them, as he said in his preface to Prayers in The Senate (1904), as 'intelligent men, in very close daily intimacy with each other, in the discharge of a common duty of the greatest importance.'" John R. Adams, Edward Everett Hale (1977), pp. 100–101.

„If you have accomplished all that you have planned for yourself, you have not planned enough.“

—  Edward Everett Hale

In Quote, Unquote (1977) by Lloyd Cory, p. 6, this statement was simply attributed to the Meggido Message which is the name of a publication by the Meggido Church http://www.megiddo.com/, but immediately following a quote by Hale. This may have led to it being attributed to Hale in The Quotable Manager : Inspiration for Business and Life (2006) by Joel J. Weiss, p. 128; a similar expression "If you have achieved all you have planned for yourself, you have not planned enough" occurs in two works by John Mason: Let Go of Whatever Makes You Stop (1994), p. 79, and Know Your Limits — Then Ignore Them (2000), p. 123

„Together — one of the most inspiring words in the English language. Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.“

„He loved his country as no other man has loved her; but no man deserved less at her hands.“
