Fidelity Quotes

True happiness...is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

Helen Keller

Do not let loyalty and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.

Bible

There is something in the unselfish and self-sacrificing love of a brute which goes directly to the heart of him who has had frequent occasion to test the paltry friendship and gossamer fidelity of mere man.

Edgar Allan Poe

People who love only once in their lives are. . . shallow people. What they call their loyalty, and their fidelity, I call either the lethargy of custom or their lack of imagination.

Oscar Wilde

They spoil every romance by trying to make it last forever.

Oscar Wilde

Fidelity. A virtue peculiar to those who are about to be betrayed.

Ambrose Bierce

Constancy... that small change of love, which people exact so rigidly, receive in such counterfeit coin, and repay in baser metal.

Lord Bryon

An ideal wife is one who remains faithful to you but tries to be just as charming as if she weren't.

Sacha Guitry

Not observation of a duty but liberty itself is the pledge that assures fidelity.

Ellen Key

Constancy has nothing virtuous in itself, independently of the pleasure it confers, and partakes of the temporizing spirit of vice in proportion as it endures tamely moral defects of magnitude in the object of its indiscreet choice.

Percy Bysshe Shelley

People who love only once in their lives are shallow people. What they call their loyalty, and their fidelity, I call either the lethargy of custom or their lack of imagination. Faithfulness is to the emotional life what consistency is to the life of the intellect -- simply a confession of failures.

Oscar Wilde

What a fuss people make about fidelity! Why, even in love it is purely a question for physiology. It has nothing to do with our own will. Young men want to be faithful, and are not; old men want to be faithless, and cannot: that is all one can say.

Oscar Wilde

The only difference between a caprice and a life-long passion is that the caprice lasts a little longer.

Oscar Wilde

No man can mortgage his injustice as a pawn for his fidelity.

Edmund Burke

The fidelity of most men is merely an invention of self-love to win confidence; a method to place us above others and to render us depositaries of the most important matters.

François de la Rochefoucauld
