It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
The good deed you do today For a brother or sister in need Will come back to you some day For humanity's a circle in deed.
Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well
From the body of one guilty deed a thousand ghostly fears and haunting thoughts proceed.
Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well. There is nothing more potent than thought. Deed follows word and word follows thought. The word is the result of a mighty thought, and where the thought is mighty and pure the result is always mighty and pure.
He that is proud eats up himself; pride in his glass, his trumpet, his chronicle; and whatever praises itself but in the deed, devours the deed in the praise
Now different races and nationalities cherish different ideals of society that stink in each other's nostrils with an offensiveness beyond the power of any but the most monstrous private deed.
Guilt is present in the very hesitation, even though the deed be not committed
Beside one deed of guilt, how blest is guiltless woe!
Guilt is present in the very hesitation, even though the deed be not committed.
Every good deed is charity whether you come to your brother's assistance or just greet him with a smile.
A little water clears us of this deed
Tis e'er the wont of simple folk to prize the deed and overlook the motive, and of learned folk to discount the deed and lay open the soul of the doer.
No baseness or cruelty of treason so deep or so tragic shall enter our human world, but that loyal love shall be able in due time to oppose to just that deed of treason its fitting deed of atonement.
The last temptation is the greatest treason: to do the right deed for the wrong reason.
The world, as transformed by this creative deed, is better than it would have been had all else remained the same, but had that deed of treason not been done at all.
Be noble in every thought And in every deed!
Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.
Try to make at least one person happy every day. If you cannot do a kind deed, speak a kind word. If you cannot speak a kind word, think a kind thought. Count up, if you can, the treasure of happiness that you would dispense in a week, in a year, in a lifetime!
He who boasts of his descent, praises the deed of another.
A good deed is never lost. He who sows courtesy, reaps friendship; he who plants kindness, gathers love; pleasure bestowed on a grateful mind was never sterile, but generally gratitude begets reward.
It is a kind of good deed to say well; and yet words are not deeds.
Taking the first footstep with a good thought the second with a good word and the third with a good deed I entered Paradise.
Sin is commitable in thought, word or deed; so is virtue.
