Famous quotes containing the word competence:

    Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are competent of ourselves to claim anything as coming from us; our competence is from God, who has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of letter but of spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
    Bible: New Testament, 2 Corinthians 3:4-6.

    It is undeniable that a woman’s ability to stretch and pursue her total competence outside the home and get paid what she’s worth for it makes for happier and more fulfilled women.
    Kyle D. Pruett (20th century)

    Love and work are viewed and experienced as totally separate activities motivated by separate needs. Yet, when we think about it, our common sense tells us that our most inspired, creative acts are deeply tied to our need to love and that, when we lack love, we find it difficult to work creatively; that work without love is dead, mechanical, sheer competence without vitality, that love without work grows boring, monotonous, lacks depth and passion.
