Honor is like an island, rugged and without a beach; once we have left it, we can never return.
more Nicolas Boileau-Despraux quotes
There are only two forces in the world, the sword and the spirit. In the long run the sword will always be conquered by the spirit.
more Napoleon Bonaparte quotes
Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds.
more Buddha quotes
If you wish to be loved, show more of your faults than your virtues.
more Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton quotes
Tell me what are the prevailing sentiments that occupy the minds of your young peoples, and I will tell you what is to be the character of the next generation.
more Edmund Burke quotes
There never was a bad man that had ability for good service.
more Edmund Burke quotes
It is not what a lawyer tells me I may do; but what humanity, reason, and justice tell me I ought to do.
more Edmund Burke quotes
All that is necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing.
more Edmund Burke quotes
The age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists and calculators has succeeded.
more Edmund Burke quotes
Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
more Edmund Burke quotes
When we regard a man as morally responsible for an act, we regard him as a legitimate object of moral praise or blame in respect of it. But it seems plain that a man cannot be a legitimate object of moral praise or blame for an act unless in willing the act he is in some important sense a ‘free’ agent. Evidently free will in some sense, therefore, is a precondition of moral responsibility.
more C. Arthur Campbell quotes
Integrity has no need of rules.
more Albert Camus quotes
All honor's wounds are self-inflicted.
more Andrew Carnegie quotes
The decision to attack the entire nation [of Yugoslavia] has been counterproductive, and our destruction of civilian life has now become senseless and excessively brutal. ... The United States' insistence on the use of cluster bombs, designed to kill or maim humans, is condemned almost universally and brings discredit on our nation (as does our refusal to support a ban on land mines). Even for the world's only superpower, the ends don't always justify the means.
more Jimmy Carter quotes
Liberty is one of the choicest gifts that heaven hath bestowed upon man, and exceeds in value all the treasures which the earth contains within its bosom, or the sea covers. Liberty, as well as honor, man ought to preserve at the hazard of his life, for without it life is insupportable.
more Cervantes quotes
The spirit of liberty is not merely, as multitudes imagine, a jealousy of our own particular rights, but a respect for the rights of others, and an unwillingness that any man, whether high or low, should be wronged and trampled under foot.
more William Ellery Channing quotes
No more duty can be urged upon those who are entering the great theater of life than simple loyalty to their best convictions.
more Edwin Hubbel Chapin quotes
The peak of tolerance is most readily achieved by those who are not burdened by convictions.
more Alexander Chase quotes
In the end it will not matter to us whether we fought with flails or reeds. It will matter to us greatly on what side we fought.
more Gilbert Keith Chesterton quotes
Every human being has, like Socrates, an attendant spirit; and wise are they who obey its signals. If it does not always tell us what to do, it always cautions us what not to do.
more Lydia M. Child quotes
If you stand straight, do not fear a crooked shadow.
more Chinese Proverb quotes
Laws control the lesser man. Right conduct controls the greater one.
more Chinese Proverb quotes
Today we may say aloud before an awe-struck world: 'We are still masters of our fate. We are still captain of our souls.'
more Sir Winston Churchill quotes
The men who administer public affairs must first of all see that everyone holds onto what is his, and that private men are never deprived of their goods by public men.
more Marcus Tullius Cicero quotes
When you are aspiring to the highest place, it is honorable to reach the second or even the third rank.
more Marcus Tullius Cicero quotes
Of all the properties which belong to honorable men, not one is so highly prized as that of character.
more Henry Clay quotes
I can find no warrant for such appropriation in the Constitution.
more Grover Cleveland quotes
Honor lies in honest toil.
more Grover Cleveland quotes
A truly American sentiment recognizes the dignity of labor and the fact that honor lies in honest toil.
more Grover Cleveland quotes
All our liberties are due to men who, when their conscience has compelled them, have broken the laws of the land.
more William Kingdon Clifford quotes
Tolerance implies a respect for another person, not because he is wrong or even because he is right, but because he is human.
more John Cogley quotes
But what is Freedom? Rightly understood, A universal licence to be good.
more Hartley Coleridge quotes
Our own heart, and not other men's opinions form our true honor.
more Samuel Taylor Coleridge quotes
While the people have property, arms in their hands, and only a spark of noble spirit, the most corrupt Congress must be mad to form any project of tyranny.
more Rev. Nicholas Collin quotes
The right of no person to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person and property, or in aid of the civil power when thereto legally summoned, shall be called in question; but nothing herein contained shall be construed to justify the practice of carrying concealed weapons.
more Colorado Constitution quotes
He that is good, will infallibly become better, and he that is bad, will as certainly become worse; for vice, virtue and time are three things that never stand still.
more Charles Caleb Colton quotes
If language is not correct, then what is said is not what is meant; if what is said is not what is meant, then what must be done remains undone; if this remains undone, morals and art will deteriorate; if justice goes astray, the people will stand about in helpless confusion. Hence there must be no arbitrariness in what is said. This matters above everything.
more Confucius quotes
The superior man cannot be known in little matters, but he may be entrusted with great concerns. The small man may not be entrusted with great concerns, but he may be known in little matters.
more Confucius quotes
You can’t, in sound morals, condemn a man for taking care of his own integrity. It is his clear duty.
more Joseph Conrad quotes
No duty, however, binds us to these so-called laws, whose corrupting influence menaces what is noblest in our being...
more Benjamin Constant quotes
The right is general. It may be supposed from the phraseology of this provision that the right to keep and bear arms was only guaranteed to the militia; but this would be an interpretation not warranted by the intent. The militia, as has been explained elsewhere, consists of those persons who, under the law, are liable to the performance of military duty, and are officered and enrolled for service when called upon. . . . [I]f the right were limited to those enrolled, the purpose of the guarantee might be defeated altogether by the action or the neglect to act of the government it was meant to hold in check. The meaning of the provision undoubtedly is, that the people, from whom the militia must be taken, shall have the right to keep and bear arms, and they need no permission or regulation of law for that purpose.
more Thomas Cooley quotes
No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.
more Calvin Coolidge quotes
Do your duty, and leave the rest to heaven.
more Pierre Corneille quotes
The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.
more Steven R. Covey quotes
As our president bears no resemblance to a king so we shall see the Senate has no similitude to nobles. First, not being hereditary, their collective knowledge, wisdom, and virtue are not precarious. For by these qualities alone are they to obtain their offices, and they will have none of the peculiar qualities and vices of those men who possess power merely because their father held it before them.
more Tench Coxe quotes
To be nobody but yourself -- in a world which is doing it's best, night and day, to make you like everybody else -- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.
more e. e. cummings quotes
You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man's freedom. You can only be free if I am free.
more Clarence S. Darrow quotes
The fruit derived from labor is the sweetest of pleasures.
more Luc de Clapiers quotes
Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed.
more Étienne de la Boétie quotes
A wise man neither suffers himself to be governed, nor attempts to govern others.
