Deeds Quotes

Our sins are more easily remembered than our good deeds.

Ralph Venning

It is by translating your fine sense of aspiration into actual lofty deeds that you grow toward your ideal.

William Congreve

We plan, we toil, we suffer - in the hope of what? A camel-load of idol's eyes? The title deeds of Radio City? The empire of Asia? A trip to the moon? No, no, no, no. Simply to wake just in time to smell coffee and bacon and eggs.

J.B. Priestly

A gentleman would be ashamed should his deeds not match his words.

John Webster

We have sworn, and not lightly. This oath we will keep. We are threatened with many evils, and treason not least; but one thing is not said: that we shall suffer from cowardice, from cravens or the fear of cravens.
