Deeds Quotes

The worst men often give the best advice; our thoughts are better sometimes than our deeds.

F. Lee Bailey

We live in deeds, not years: In thoughts not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.

Philip James Bailey

Let a man avoid evil deeds as a man who loves life avoids poison.

Buddha

Don't listen to their words, fix your attention on their deeds.

Albert Einstein

Kind hearts are the gardens, Kind thoughts are the roots, Kind words are the flowers, Kind deeds are the fruits, Take care of your garden And keep out the weeds, Fill it with sunshine Kind words and kind deeds.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If you really think about it, everything is wonderful in this world, everything except for our thoughts and deeds when we forget about the loftier goals of existence, about our human dignity.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

Verily your deeds will be brought back to you, as if you yourself were the creator of your own punishment.

Muhammad

Let your intentions be good - embodied in good thoughts, cheerful words, and unselfish deeds - and the world will be to you a bright and happy place in which to work and play and serve.

Grenville Kleiser

It is requisite for the relaxation of the mind that we make use, from time to time, of playful deeds and jokes.

Thomas Aquinas

To do good is difficult. One who does good first does something hard to do. I have done many good deeds, and, if my sons, grandsons and their descendants up to the end of the world act in like manner, they too will do much good. But whoever amongst them neglects this, they will do evil. Truly, it is easy to do evil.

Ashoka the Great

Whatever good deeds have been done by me, those the people accept and those they follow. Therefore they have progressed and will continue to progress by being respectful to mother and father, respectful to elders, by courtesy to the aged and proper behavior towards Brahmans and ascetics, towards the poor and distressed, and even towards servants and employees.

Ashoka the Great

The ancients had a taste, let us say rather a passion, for the marvellous, which caused them to forget even the sacred duties of gratitude. Observe them, for example, grouping together the lofty deeds of a great number of heroes, whose names they have not even deigned to preserve, and investing the single personage of Hercules with them. The lapse of ages has not rendered us wiser in this respect. In our own time the public delight in blending fable with history. In every career of life, in the pursuit of science especially, they enjoy a pleasure in creating Herculeses.

Franois Jean Dominique Arago

In battle, in the forest, at the precipice in the mountains, On the dark great sea, in the midst of javelins and arrows, In sleep, in confusion, in the depths of shame, The good deeds a man has done before defend him.

Bhagavad Gita

Deeds are fruits, words are leaves.

English Proverb

What old people say you cannot do, you try and find that you can. Old deeds for old people, and new deeds for new.

Henry David Thoreau

Great acts are made up of small deeds.

Lao Tzu

Fashion your life as a garland of beautiful deeds.

Buddha

It is not deeds or acts that last: it is the written record of those deeds and acts.

Elbert Hubbard

A strong and secure man digests his experiences (deeds and misdeeds alike) just as he digests his meat, even when he has some bits to swallow.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Noble deeds that are concealed are most esteemed.

Blaise Pascal

Out of our beliefs are born deeds; out of our deeds we form habits; out of our habits grows our character; and on our character we build our destiny.

Henry Hancock

Keeping away from all evil deeds, cultivation of life by doing good deeds and purification of mind from mental impurities.

Buddha

Those who aim at great deeds must also suffer greatly.

Plutarch

It is a kind of good deed to say well; and yet words are not deeds.

William Shakespeare
