John AdamsPublic virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honor, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.
Hannah ArendtThe law of progress holds that everything now must be better than what was there before. Don’t you see if you want something better, and better, and better, you lose the good. The good is no longer even being measured.
Harry BrowneYou can't give the government the power to do good without also giving it the power to do bad - in fact, to do anything it wants.
BuddhaGood men and bad men differ radically. Bad men never appreciate kindness shown them, but wise men appreciate and are grateful. Wise men try to express their appreciation and gratitude by some return of kindness, not only to their benefactor, but to everyone else.
New Hampshire ConstitutionThe doctrine of non-resistance against arbitrary power and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.
William CowperBut slaves that once conceive the glowing thought\\
Of freedom, in that hope itself possess\\
All that the contest calls for; spirit, strength,\\
The scorn of danger, and united hearts,\\
The surest presage of the good they seek.
Leonardo da VinciThe desire to know is natural to good men.
Emile de LaveleyeThere is in human affairs one order which is best. That order is not always the one which exists; but it is the order which should exist for the greatest good of humanity. God knows, it and will it: man's duty it is to discover and establish it.
Albert EinsteinI have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves - such an ethical basis I call more proper for a herd of swine.  The ideals which have lighted me on my way and time after time given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Truth, Goodness, and Beauty.
Dwight D. EisenhowerI developed a practice which, so far as I know, I have never violated. The practice is to avoid public mention of any name unless it can be done with favorable intent and connotation; reserve all criticism for the private conference; speak only good in public.
William FaulknerDon't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.
Arthur FreedDon't try to be different. Just be good. To be good is different enough.
Milton FriedmanConcentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it.
IsaiahLoose the bands of wickedness, undo the bundles that oppress, let those who are broken go free, and break asunder every burden. Share your bread with the hungry, welcome into your house the afflicted and homeless; when you see a naked man, clothe him, and do not turn your back on your own flesh. Then your light will arise like the dawn, and your wound will quickly be healed. Your justice shall go before you, the glory of the Lord will closely follow you
Immanuel KantEveryone may seek his own happiness in the way that
seems good to himself, provided that he infringe not such freedom
of others to strive after a similar end as is consistent with
the freedom of all according to a possible general law.
Martin LutherThe man who has the will to undergo all labor may win to any good.
James MadisonThe eyes of the world being thus on our Country, it is put the more on its good behavior, and under the greater obligation also, to do justice to the Tree of Liberty by an exhibition of the fine fruits we gather from it.
Christopher MarloweGoodness is beauty in the best estate.
Dr. Ron PaulWe have a lot of goodness in this country. And we should promote it, but never through the barrel of a gun. We should do it by setting good standards, motivating people and have them want to emulate us. But you can't enforce our goodness, like the neocons preach, with an armed force. It doesn't work.
Mary RenaultIn all men is evil sleeping; the good man is he who will not awaken it, in himself or in other men.
Lucius Annaeus SenecaOnce again prosperous and successful crime goes by the name of virtue; good men obey the bad, might is right and fear oppresses law.
Lucius Annaeus SenecaToward good men God has the mind of a father, he cherishes for them a manly love, and he says, "Let them be harassed by toil, by suffering, by losses, in order that they may gather true strength." Bodies grown fat through sloth are weak, and not only labour, but even movement and their very weight cause them to break down. Unimpaired prosperity cannot withstand a single blow; but he who has struggled constantly with his ills becomes hardened through suffering; and yields to no misfortune; nay, even if he falls, he still fights upon his knees.
Adam SmithBeneficence is always free, it cannot be extorted by force.
Joseph StoryA good government implies two things; first, fidelity to the objects of the government; secondly, a knowledge of the means, by which those objects can be best attained.
Henry David ThoreauGoodness is the only investment that never fails.
John WesleyDo all the good you can.
By all the means you can.
In all the ways you can.
In all the places you can.
At all the times you can.
To all the people you can.
As long as ever you can.
