Virtue Quotes

Genuine morality is preserved only in the school of adversity; a state of continuous prosperity may easily prove a quick sand to virtue.

Friedrich von Schiller

Every day confirms my opinion on the superiority of a vicious life - and if Virtue is not its own reward I don't know any other stipend annexed to it.

Lord Byron

As far as I'm concerned, I prefer silent vice to ostentatious virtue.

Albert Einstein

Men imagine that they communicate their virtue or vice only by overt actions, and do not see that virtue or vice emit a breath every moment.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man's indebtedness is not virtue; his repayment is. Virtue begins when he dedicates himself actively to the job of gratitude.

Ruth Benedict

Tenderness is a virtue.

Oliver Goldsmith

There can be no richer man or woman than the individual who has found his or her labor of love. Personal fulfillment through the virtue of work is the highest form of desire. Work is the conduit between the supply and the demand of all human needs, the forerunner of human progress, and the medium by which the imagination is given the wings of action. A labor of love is exalted because it provides joy and self-expression to those who perform it.

Dennis Kimbro

The resistance of a woman to a mans advances is not always a sign of virtue. Sometimes its just a sign of experience.

Ninon de Lenclos

High birth is an accident, not a virtue.

Pietro Metastasio

Suspicion is not less an enemy to virtue than to happiness; he that is already corrupt is naturally suspicious, and he that becomes suspicious will quickly become corrupt.

Samuel Johnson

Suspicion is far more to be wrong than right; more often unjust than just. It is no friend to virtue, and always an enemy to happiness.

Hosea Ballou

Sympathy is a virtue unknown in nature.

Paul Eipper

I prefer an accommodating vice to an obstinate virtue.

Moliere

Education must have two foundations --morality as a support for virtue, prudence as a defense for self against the vices of others. By letting the balance incline to the side of morality, you only make dupes or martyrs; by letting it incline to the other, you make calculating egoists.

S├ębastien-Roch Nicolas De Chamfort

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.
