Deeds Quotes

The one who keeps the stars in their place can keep us in our place. There is no depression for good deeds, and that is all that business consists of, and that is our real business.

Henry N. Kost

Little deeds of kindness, little words of love, help to make earth happy, like heaven above.

Julia Fletcher Carney 1823

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, 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; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt

I like business because it is competitive, because it rewards deeds rather than words. I like business because it compels earnestness and does not permit me to neglect today's task while thinking about tomorrow. I like business because it undertakes to please, not reform; because it is honestly selfish, thereby avoiding hypocrisy and sentimentality. I like business because it promptly penalizes mistakes, shiftlessness and inefficiency, while rewarding well those who give it the best they have in them. Lastly, I like business because each day is a fresh adventure.

R. H. Cabell

Little deeds of kindness, little words of love, help to make earth happy, like heaven above.

Julia Fletcher Carney

Stern fate and time Will have their victims; and the best die first, Leaving the bad still strong, though past their prime, To curse the hopeless world they ever curs'd Vaunting vile deeds, and vainest of the worst.

Ebenezer Elliott

The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.

Harriet Beecher Stowe

Still others commit all sorts of evil deeds, claiming karma doesn’t exist. They erroneously maintain that since everything is empty, committing evil isn’t wrong. Such persons fall into a hell of endless darkness with no hope of release. Those who are wise hold no such conception.

Bodhidharma

Noble deeds and hot baths are the best cures for depression.

Dodie Smith

Best of all, Christmas means a spirit of love, a time when the love of God and the love of our fellow men should prevail over all hatred and bitterness, a time when our thoughts and deeds and the spirit of our lives manifest the presence of God.

George F. McDougall

Blessings ever wait on virtuous deeds, and though a late, a sure reward succeeds

William Congreve

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.

Buddha

I would give all the wealth of the world, and all the deeds of all the heroes, for one true vision.

Henry David Thoreau

Our deeds determine us, as much as we determine our deeds.

George Eliot (Mary Evans) 1819

Little deeds of kindness, little words of love, help to make earth happy, like heaven above.

Blessed is the man who always kept the life after death in his view, who remembered the Day of Judgment through all his deeds, who led a contented life and who was happy with the lot that God had destined for him.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

One who hopes inordinately, impairs his deeds.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

Endurance is composed of four attributes: eagerness, fear, piety and anticipation (of death). So whoever is eager for Paradise will ignore temptations; whoever fears the fire of Hell will abstain from sins; whoever practises piety will easily bear the difficulties of life and whoever anticipates death will hasten towards good deeds.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

If someone's deeds lower his position, his pedigree cannot elevate it.

Ali bin Abu-Talib
