#1. I can accomplish far more than I have, and I will, for why should the miracle that produced me end with my brith? Why can I not extend that miracle to my deeds of today? - Author: Og Mandino
Deeds quotes by Og Mandino
#2. You had an image of life inside you, a belief or an ideal, that you were ready to do good deeds, to suffer, and to sacrifice – and by degrees you noticed that the world had no need of your good deeds, or sacrifices, and such like; that life was not an heroic tale, with roles for heroes, and such like, but a comfortable bourgeois parlour, where one is perfectly satisfied with eating and drinking, coffee and knitted stockings, tarot readings and music on the radio. And he who wants otherwise and has the heroic and the beautiful inside him, the veneration of great poets or the adoration of saints inside him, he is a fool and a knight errant, a latter day Don Quixote? - Author: Hermann Hesse
Deeds quotes by Hermann Hesse
#3. Soft you; a word or two before you go. I have done the state some service, and they know't. - No more of that. - I pray you, in your letters, When you shall these unlucky deeds relate, Speak of me as I am; nothing extenuate, Nor set down aught in malice: then must you speak Of one that loved not wisely, but too well; Of one not easily jealous, but, - Author: William Shakespeare
Deeds quotes by William Shakespeare
#4. When a man remains over after death,
His deeds are set beside him as treasure, And being yonder lasts forever.
A fool is who does what they reprove! - Author: Miriam Lichtheim
Deeds quotes by Miriam Lichtheim

Deeds quotes by Faramir
#7. This world,people around is a mirror where you see your deeds,your life and your behavior reflected back as you behave. - Author: Kunal Narayan Uniyal
Deeds quotes by Kunal Narayan Uniyal
#8. Courage is a heart word. The root of the word courage is cor - the Latin word for heart. In one of its earliest forms, the word courage meant "To speak one's mind by telling all one's heart." Over time, this definition has changed, and today, we typically associate courage with heroic and brave deeds. But in my opinion, this definition fails to recognize the inner strength and level of commitment required for us to actually speak honestly and openly about who we are and about our experiences
good and bad. Speaking from our hearts is what I think of as "ordinary courage. - Author: Brene Brown
Deeds quotes by Brene Brown
#9. Sacrifice is at the heart of repentance. Without deeds, your apology is worthless. - Author: Bryan Davis
Deeds quotes by Bryan Davis
#10. Every one may know that to will and not to do, when there is opportunity, is in reality not to will; and that to love what is good and not to do it, when it is possible, is in reality not to love it. Will, which stops short of action, and love, which does not do the good that is loved, is a mere thought separate from will and love, which vanishes and comes to nothing. - Author: Emanuel Swedenborg
Deeds quotes by Emanuel Swedenborg
#11. The majority of men are more capable of great actions than of good ones. - Author: Baron De Montesquieu
Deeds quotes by Baron De Montesquieu
#12. Evil men rarely convince others to their side by asking them to perform dark deeds for no good reason. They will always start with the lightest shade of gray. They so often use what seems like a good cause."

"You don't think it's possible that a little gray is what's needed, sometimes?" asked Davian.

Raleth snorted.

"No," he said severely. "Gray is the color of cowardice and ignorance and sheer laziness, Davian--never let anyone tell you otherwise. If something is not clearly right or wrong then it bears actually *figuring out* which one it is, not dismissal into some nebulous third category. If you have a basis for your morality, a foundation for it, then there will always be an answer--and if you do not, then trying to decide whether *anything* is right or wrong is an exercise in futility and irrelevance. - Author: James Islington
Deeds quotes by James Islington
#13. It isn't the words we speak that make us who we are. Or even the deeds we do. It is the secrets buried in our hearts. - Author: Thrity Umrigar
Deeds quotes by Thrity Umrigar
#14. Relationship builders, on the other hand, try to help other people first. They don't keep score. They're aware that many good deeds get reciprocated, but they're not calculated about it. And they think about their relationships all the time, not just when they need something. - Author: Reid Hoffman
Deeds quotes by Reid Hoffman
#15. Nature, machine-like, works definitely and heartlessly, if in the main beautifully. Hence, if we, as individuals, do not make this dream of a god or what he stands for us real in our thoughts and deeds, then he is not real or true. - Author: Theodore Dreiser
Deeds quotes by Theodore Dreiser
#16. A scholar's weapon is his pen;
a sage's weapon, his deeds. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Deeds quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#17. Oscar Wilde was born in Dublin, on the 15th October, 1856, so that he is now about twenty-six years of age, but brief as has been his career, it has been full of promise for the future. The son of highly intellectual parents, he has had an exceptional education, has travelled much in wild and remote, through classic lands, and in the course of these journeys has learnt to appreciate the beauties of the old authors, in whose works whilst at college he attained exceptional proficiency. But his naturally enthusiastic temperament teaches him to hope for better in the future than has been achieved in the past, and to see how vast will be the influence of Art and Literature on the coming democracy of Intellect, when education and culture shall have taught men to pride themselves on what they have done, and not alone on the deeds of their ancestors. - Author: Walter Hamilton
Deeds quotes by Walter Hamilton
#18. Our individual well-being is intimately connected both with that of all others and with the environment within which we live ... Our every action, our every deed, word, and thought, no matter how slight or inconsequential it may seem, has an implication not only for ourselves, but for all others, too. - Author: Dalai Lama
Deeds quotes by Dalai Lama
#19. To do an evil action is base; to do a good action without incurring danger is common enough; but it is the part of a good man to do great and noble deeds, though he risks every thing. - Author: Plutarch
Deeds quotes by Plutarch
#20. We don't need to be perfect to do good deeds in the world, but we need to be sincere in our efforts. - Author: Gudjon Bergmann
Deeds quotes by Gudjon Bergmann
#21. When a noble deed is done, who is likely to appreciate it? They who are noble themselves. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Deeds quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#22. We should be remembered for the things we do. The things we do are the most important things of all. They are more important than what we say or what we look like. The things we do outlast our mortality. The things we do are like monuments that people build to honour heroes after they've died. They're like the pyramids that the Egyptians built to honour the Pharaohs. Only instead of being made out of stone, they're made out of the memories people have of you. That's why your deeds are like your monuments. Built with memories instead of with stone. - Author: R.J. Palacio
Deeds quotes by R.J. Palacio
#23. The world judges you by your color, the universe judges you by your deeds. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Deeds quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#24. God desires his people to be abounding in love and good works. To be people of integrity and honor. People who reflect his character. But we are human - sinful people capable of evil deeds. - Author: Karen Witemeyer
Deeds quotes by Karen Witemeyer
#25. Our house was an old Tudor mansion. My father was very particular in keeping the smallest peculiarities of his home unaltered. Thus the many peaks and gables, the numerous turrets, and the mullioned windows with their quaint lozenge panes set in lead, remained very nearly as they had been three centuries back. Over and above the quaint melancholy of our dwelling, with the deep woods of its park and the sullen waters of the mere, our neighborhood was thinly peopled and primitive, and the people round us were ignorant, and tenacious of ancient ideas and traditions. Thus it was a superstitious atmosphere that we children were reared in, and we heard, from our infancy, countless tales of horror, some mere fables doubtless, others legends of dark deeds of the olden time, exaggerated by credulity and the love of the marvelous. ("Horror: A True Tale") - Author: John Berwick Harwood
Deeds quotes by John Berwick Harwood
#26. The real meaning of the spoken word has to be demonstrated by practical deeds - Author: Nelson Mandela
Deeds quotes by Nelson Mandela
#27. Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are immorality, impurity, sensuality. - Author: Galatians
Deeds quotes by Galatians
#28. The loss of sex polarity is part and parcel of the larger disintegration, the reflex of the soul's death, and coincident with the disappearance of great men, great deeds, great causes, great wars, etc. - Author: Henry Miller
Deeds quotes by Henry Miller
#29. If God rewards us on earth for good deeds - the Old Testament suggests it's so, and the Puritans certainly believed it - then maybe Satan rewards us for evil ones. - Author: Stephen King
Deeds quotes by Stephen King
#30. It's often the most frightened of folk who do the greatest deeds. - Author: Richard A. Knaak
Deeds quotes by Richard A. Knaak
#31. Gratitude is a Beautiful Virtue but don't get offended when ingratitude is shown or your good deeds. - Author: Jaachynma N.E. Agu
Deeds quotes by Jaachynma N.E. Agu
#32. Ironically, as some people become harder, they use softer words to describe dark deeds. This, too, is part of being sedated by secularism. Needless abortion, for instance, is a "reproductive health procedure, ... " "Illegitimacy" gives way to the wholly sanitized words "non-marital birth" or "alternative parenting." - Author: Neal A. Maxwell
Deeds quotes by Neal A. Maxwell
#33. Whatever you sow, you shall reap. It is better to sow good deeds; love, goodness and kindness. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Deeds quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#34. Though justice be Thy plea, consider this: That in the course of justice none of us should see salvation. We do pray for mercy, And that same prayer doth teach us all to render The deeds of mercy. - Author: George Bernard Shaw
Deeds quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#35. ...It would hardly be a waste of time if sometimes even the most advanced students in the cognitive sciences were to pay a visit to their ancestors. It is frequently claimed in American philosophy departments that, in order to be a philosopher, it is not necessary to revisit the history of philosophy. It is like the claim that one can become a painter without having ever seen a single work by Raphael, or a writer without having ever read the classics. Such things are theoretically possible; but the 'primitive' artist, condemned to an ignorance of the past, is always recognizable as such and rightly labeled as naïf. It is only when we consider past projects revealed as utopian or as failures that we are apprised of the dangers and possibilities for failure for our allegedly new projects. The study of the deeds of our ancestors is thus more than an atiquarian pastime, it is an immunological precaution. - Author: Umberto Eco
Deeds quotes by Umberto Eco
#36. Gaining energy is accomplished by meditating, by right actions, right thoughts, right deeds, by studying with a real teacher or by just studying the teachings, by creating happiness in your life, and by never giving up. - Author: Frederick Lenz
Deeds quotes by Frederick Lenz
#37. Regret, to no end, in every hour
Of a long life. What beautiful work
Will redeem the heartbeats of a living creature
And what use to confess deeds that last forever? - Author: Czesław Miłosz
Deeds quotes by Czesław Miłosz
#38. In marriage for example, you say 'Yes' on the day you get married, 'I do', but each day you implicitly if not explicitly, also say 'Yes', by every act that one performs in a marriage, one is saying 'Yes', making a cup of coffee for one's wife or husband is a form of saying 'Yes' to the marriage vow that one is continuing the marriage by affirming it in one's deeds. And exactly the same in the religious life. - Author: Kevin Hart
Deeds quotes by Kevin Hart
#39. Wicked words are the prelude to wicked deeds. - Author: Samuel Richardson
Deeds quotes by Samuel Richardson
#40. In that we say he [Christ] made whole the lame, the paralytic, and those born blind, we seem to say what is very similar to the deeds said to have been done by Esculapius. - Author: Justin Martyr
Deeds quotes by Justin Martyr
#41. Do you mortify; do you make it your daily work; be always at it whilst you live; cease not a day from this work; be killing sin or it will be killing you. - Author: John Owen
Deeds quotes by John Owen
#42. Man and his deed are two distinct things. Whereas a good deed should call forth approbation and a wicked deed disapprobation, the doer of the deed, whether good or wicked, always deserves respect or pity as the case may be. "Hate the sin and not the sinner" is a precept which, though easy enough to understand, is rarely practiced, and that is why the poison of hatred spreads in the world. - Author: Mahatma Gandhi
Deeds quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#43. Far back in the mists of ancient time, in the great and glorious days of the former Galactic Empire, life was wild, rich and largely tax free. Mighty starships plied their way between exotic suns, seeking adventure and reward among the furthest reaches of Galactic space. In those days spirits were brave, the stakes were high, men were real men, women were real women and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri. And all dared to brave unknown terrors, to do mighty deeds, to boldly split infinitives that no man had split before
and thus was the Empire forged.
... In these enlightened days, of course, no one believes a word of it. - Author: Douglas Adams
Deeds quotes by Douglas Adams
#44. My words have an origin. My deeds have a sovereign. Truly, because people do not understand this, they do not understand me. - Author: Laozi
Deeds quotes by Laozi
#45. With a nearly desperate sense of isolation and a growing suspicion that I lived in an alien land, I took to the road in search of places where change did not mean ruin and where time and men and deeds connected. - Author: William Least Heat-Moon
Deeds quotes by William Least Heat-Moon
#46. How beggarly appear arguments before a defiant deed! - Author: Walt Whitman
Deeds quotes by Walt Whitman
#47. The only measure of your worth and your deeds will be the love you leave behind when you're gone. - Author: Fred Small
Deeds quotes by Fred Small
#48. Arise now, arise, Riders of Théoden!
Dire deeds awake, dark is it eastward.
Let horse be bridled, horn be sounded!
Forth Eorlingas! - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
Deeds quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#49. Alas! They were so young, so beautiful, so lonely, loving, helpless, and the hour was that in which the heart is always full, annd, having o'er itself no further power, prompts deeds eternity can not annul. - Author: George Gordon Byron
Deeds quotes by George Gordon Byron
#50. All your wounds from craving love
Exist because of heroic deeds. - Author: Hafez
Deeds quotes by Hafez
#51. We nurture kind souls with kind deeds. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Deeds quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#52. For every life and every act consequence of good and evil can be shown and as in time results of many deeds are blended so good and evil in the end become confounded. - Author: T. S. Eliot
Deeds quotes by T. S. Eliot
#53. I am not one of your repentant sinners, Kenneth. I have lived my life - God, what a life! - and as I have lived I shall die, unflinching and unchanged. Dare one to presume that a few hours spent in whining prayers shall atone for years of reckless dissoluteness? 'Tis a doctrine of cravens, who, having lacked in life the strength to live as conscience bade them, lack in death the courage to stand by that life's deeds. I am no such traitor to myself. - Author: Rafael Sabatini
Deeds quotes by Rafael Sabatini
#54. How wholesome winter is, seen far or near; how good, above all mere sentimental, warm-blooded, short-lived, soft-hearted, moral goodness, commonly so called. Give me the goodness which has forgotten its own deeds,
which God has seen to be good, and let be. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Deeds quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#55. People are all alike in their promises. It is only in their deeds that they differ. - Author: Moliere
Deeds quotes by Moliere
#56. It is better to study how to live rather than how to die; ... it is better to have a religion of deeds rather than a religion of creeds; ... it is better to work for humanity than for God. - Author: Voltairine De Cleyre
Deeds quotes by Voltairine De Cleyre
#57. Europe is equal to its historical task. Against the anti-spiritual, anti-heroic 'ideals' of America-Jewry, Europe pits its metaphysical ideas, its faith in its Destiny, its ethical principles, its heroism. Fearlessly, Europe falls in for battle, knowing it is armed with the mightiest weapon ever forged by History: the superpersonal Destiny of the European organism. Our European Mission is to create the Culture-State-Nation-Imperium of the West, and thereby we shall perform such deeds, accomplish such works, and so transform our world that our distant posterity, when they behold the remains of our buildings and ramparts, will tell their grandchildren that on the soil of Europe once dwelt a tribe of gods. - Author: Francis Parker Yockey
Deeds quotes by Francis Parker Yockey
#58. On Yom Kippur, it is not enough for one to feel sorry for the foul deeds one has done. To achieve forgiveness, one must go to the injured parties and make amends. - Author: Daniel Silva
Deeds quotes by Daniel Silva
#59. Let mercy be your mosque, faith your prayer-mat, and honest living your Koran. Make modesty your circumcision, and good conduct your fast. In this way, you shall be a true Muslim. Let good conduct be your Kaabaa, Truth your spiritual guide, and the karma of good deeds your prayer and chant. Let your rosary be that which is pleasing to His Will. - Author: Sant Singh
Deeds quotes by Sant Singh
#60. Every good deed is acceptable goodness. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Deeds quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#61. If you correct your hidden deeds subsequently, Allaah will correct your outward deeds. - Author: Ibn Taymiyyah
Deeds quotes by Ibn Taymiyyah
#62. Since it was true that study, even when done properly, can only teach us what wisdom, right conduct and determination consist in, they wanted to put their children directly in touch with actual cases, teaching them not by hearsay but by actively assaying them, vigorously molding and forming them not merely by word and precept but chiefly by deeds and examples, so that wisdom should not be something which the soul knows but the soul's very essence and temperament, not something acquired but a natural property. - Author: Michel De Montaigne
Deeds quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#63. The "good deeds" done outside trusting the gospel will make a soul go sour. - Author: Timothy Keller
Deeds quotes by Timothy Keller
#64. For there are three ways of performing an act of mercy: the merciful word, by forgiving and by comforting; secondly, if you can offer no word, then pray - that too is mercy; and thirdly, deeds of mercy. And when the Last Day comes, we shall be judged from this, and on this basis we shall receive the eternal verdict. - Author: Mary Faustina Kowalska
Deeds quotes by Mary Faustina Kowalska
#65. Then they'd be wrong. It's only our deeds that make us evil, Tanner; they're what define us, nothing else, not our intentions or feelings. But what are a few bad deeds compared to a life, especially the kinds of lives we can live now? - Author: Alastair Reynolds
Deeds quotes by Alastair Reynolds
#66. Hope shouldn't increase with good deeds and decrease with sin. In good deeds, my hope is for Allah to accept. In sin, my hope is for Allah to forgive. - Author: Yasmin Mogahed
Deeds quotes by Yasmin Mogahed
#67. Madam Yennefer, Forgive me. I'm riding to Hirundum because I want to see Geralt. I want to see him before I start school. Forgive my disobedience, but I must. I know you'll punish me, but I don't want to regret my indecision and hesitation. If I'm to have regrets, let them be for deeds and actions. I'm an enchantress. I seize life by the scruff of the neck. I'll return when I can. - Ciri - Author: Andrzej Sapkowski
Deeds quotes by Andrzej Sapkowski
#68. Can you hold a red-hot iron rod in your hand merely because some one wants you to do so? Then, will it be right on your part to ask others to do the same thing just to satisfy your desires? If you cannot tolerate infliction of pain on your body or mind by others' words and actions, what right have you to do the same to others through your words and deeds?
Do unto others as you would like to be done by. Injury or violence done by you to any life in any form, animal or human, is as harmful as it would e if caused to your own self. - Author: Mahavira
Deeds quotes by Mahavira
#69. I know not whence I came,
I know not whither I go;
But the fact stands clear that I am here
In this world of pleasure and woe.
And out of the mist and murk,
Another truth shines plain.
It is in my power each day and hour
To add to its joy or its pain.
I know that the earth exists,
It is none of my business why.
I cannot find out what it's all about,
I would but waste time to try.
My life is a brief, brief thing,
I am here for a little space.
And while I stay I would like, if I may,
To brighten and better the place. - Author: Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Deeds quotes by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
#70. A husband should always try to treat his wife with the greatest courtesy and respect, holding her in the highest esteem. He should speak to her in a kind and a soft manner, showing his love by word and deed. As she feels this love and tenderness she will mirror it and return it tenfold. - Author: James E. Faust
Deeds quotes by James E. Faust
#71. Miracles are unforgettable deeds. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Deeds quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#72. The stream of Time, irresistible, ever moving, carries off and bears away all things that come to birth and plunges them into utter darkness, both deeds of no account and deeds which are mighty and worthy of commemoration; as the playwright [Sophocles] says, it 'brings to light that which was unseen and shrouds from us that which was manifest.' Nevertheless, the science of History is a great bulwark against this stream of Time; in a way it checks this irresistible flood, it holds in a tight grasp whatever it can seize floating on the surface and will not allow it to slip away into the depths of Oblivion.
... I, having realized the effects wrought by Time, desire now by means of my writings to give an account of my father's deeds, which do not deserve to be consigned to Forgetfulness nor to be swept away on the flood of Time into an ocean of Non-Remembrance; I wish to recall everything ... - Author: Anna Comnena
Deeds quotes by Anna Comnena
#73. The desire for sudden change and the thought of their realization by force often appears among men like a disease and gains ground mainly in young brains; only these brains do not think as they should, do not amount to anything in the end and the heads that think thus do not remain long on their shoulders. For it is not human desires that dispose and administer the things of this world. Desire is like a wind, it sifts the dust from one place to another, sometimes darkens the whole horizon, but in the end calms down and leaves the old and eternal picture of the world. Lasting deeds are realized on this earth only by God's will, and man is only His humble and blind tool. - Author: Ivo Andric
Deeds quotes by Ivo Andric
#74. Bu is a word that cools many a warm impulse, stifles many a kindly thought, puts a dead stop to many a brotherly deed. No one would ever love his neighbor as himself if he listened to all the Buts that could be said. - Author: Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Deeds quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#75. Life is filled with all goods and bads around each one of us,It's our rights to choose the path and we are responsible of all our deeds and consequences. - Author: OctavE Life
Deeds quotes by OctavE Life
#76. I always hope that young people will think for themselves and also most importantly, understand that they should judge themselves on their own merit, their good deeds, however simple, to not judge themselves by what they have materially, by what other people think of them, through social media. - Author: Patti Smith
Deeds quotes by Patti Smith
#77. It is easy to understand that the best deed is well done: and so well as the best deed is done - the highest - so well is the least deed done; and all thing in its property and in the order that our Lord hath ordained it to from without beginning. For there is no doer but He. - Author: Julian Of Norwich
Deeds quotes by Julian Of Norwich
#78. Noble words, but words were easy. Deeds were hard. - Brienne - Author: George R R Martin
Deeds quotes by George R R Martin
#79. Mind is a forerunner of all actions.
All deeds are led by mind, created by mind.
If one speaks or acts with corrupt mind,
suffering follows,
As the wheel follows the hoof of an ox pulling a cart.

Mind is the forerunner of all actions.
All deeds are led by mind, created by mind.
If one speaks or acts with a serene mind,
happiness follows,
As surely as one's shadow.

'He abused me, he mistreated me, defeated me, robbed me.'
Harboring such thoughts keeps hatred alive.

'He abused me, he mistreated me, defeated me, robbed me.'
Releasing such thoughts banishes hatred for all time.

Animosity does not eradicate animosity.
Only by loving kindness is animosity dissolved.
This law is ancient and eternal. - Author: Dhammapada
Deeds quotes by Dhammapada
#80. Who wants to hear about brave deeds when he's ashamed of his own, and who likes an open, honest tale from someone he's deceiving? - Author: Richard Adams
Deeds quotes by Richard Adams
#81. Our enemies are our evil deeds and their memories, our pride, our selfishness, our malice, our passions, which by conscience or by habit pursue us with a relentlessness past the power of figure to express. - Author: George A. Smith
Deeds quotes by George A. Smith
#82. Our democracy is not a product but a continual process. It is preserved not by monuments but deeds. Sometimes it needs refining; sometimes it needs amending; sometimes it needs defending. Always, it needs improving. - Author: Lee H. Hamilton
Deeds quotes by Lee H. Hamilton
#83. Life is short and if you're looking for extension, you had best do well. 'Cause there's good deeds and then there's good intentions. They are as far apart as Heaven and Hell. - Author: Ben Harper
Deeds quotes by Ben Harper
#84. Trexler knew what he wanted, and what, in general, all men wanted; and he was glad, in a way, that it was both inexpressible and unattainable, and that it wasn't a wing. He was satisfied to remember that it was deep, formless, enduring and impossible of fulfillment, and that it made men sick, and that when you sauntered along Third Avenue and looked through the doorways into the dim saloons, you could sometimes pick out from the unregenerate ranks the ones who had not forgotten, gazing steadily into the bottoms of their glasses on the long chance that they could get another little peek at it. Trexler found himself renewed by the remembrance that what he wanted was at once great and microscopic, and that although it borrowed from the nature of large deeds and of youthful love and of old songs and early intimations, it was not any one of these things, and that it had not been isolated or pinned down, and that a man who attempted to define it in the privacy of a doctor's office would fall flat on his face. - Author: E.B. White
Deeds quotes by E.B. White
#85. It's not a sense of justice. Figuring out difficult cases is my hobby. If you measured good and evil deeds by current laws, I would be responsible for many crimes. The same way you all like to solve mysteries and riddles, or clear video games more quickly. For me too, its simply prolonging something I enjoy doing. It's not justice at all. And if it means being able to clear a case, I don't play fair, I'm a dishonest, cheating human being who hates losing in truth. - Author: L Lawliet
Deeds quotes by L Lawliet
#86. Three essential virtues are patient, loyalty and kindness. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Deeds quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#87. She never indulged in reveries or tried to be clever in her conversation; she seemed to have drawn a line in her mind beyond which she never went. It was quite obvious that feelings, every kind of relationship, including love, entered into her life on equal terms with everything else, while in the case of other women love quite manifestly takes part, if not in deeds, then in words, in all the problems of life, and everything else is allowed in only in so far as love leaves room for it. The thing this woman esteemed most was the art of living, of being able to control oneself, of keeping a balance between thought and intention, intention and realization. You could never take her unawares, by surprise, but she was like a watchful enemy whose expectant gaze would always be fixed on you, however hard you tried to lie in wait for him. High society was her element, and therefore tact and caution prompted her every thought, word, and movement. - Author: Ivan Goncharov
Deeds quotes by Ivan Goncharov
#88. A word that has been said may be unsaid-it is but air. But when a deed is done, it cannot be undone, nor can our thoughts reach out to all the mischiefs that may follow. - Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Deeds quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#89. Sin so contaminates every area of our being that deeds done in religious service are tainted with self-love, self-seeking, self-worship...Not only do our evil deeds comdemn us, even our moral deeds damn us. - Author: Dan Phillips
Deeds quotes by Dan Phillips
#90. One cannot do justice to Marx without recognizing his sincerity. His open-mindedness, his sense of facts, his distrust of verbiage, and especially of moralizing verbiage, made him one of the world's most influential fighters against hypocrisy and pharisaism. He had a burning desire to help the oppressed, and was fully conscious of the need for proving himself in deeds, and not only in words. His main talents being theoretical, he devoted immense labour to forging what he believed to be scientific weapons for the fight to improve the lot of the vast majority of men. His sincerity in his search for truth and his intellectual honesty distinguish him, I believe, from many of his followers (although unfortunately he did not altogether escape the corrupting influence of an upbringing in the atmosphere of Hegelian dialectics, described by Schopenhauer as 'destructive of all intelligence'). Marx's interest in social science and social philosophy was fundamentally a practical interest. He saw in knowledge a means of promoting the progress of man. - Author: Karl Popper
Deeds quotes by Karl Popper
#91. Passion impels our deeds; ideology supplies the explanations. - Author: Mason Cooley
Deeds quotes by Mason Cooley
#92. We shall not weary, we shall not rest, as we stand guard at the entrance gates and the exit gates of life, and at every step along way of life, bearing witness in word and deed to the dignity of the human person-of every human person ... - Author: Richard John Neuhaus
Deeds quotes by Richard John Neuhaus
#93. The genius-in work and in deed-is necessarily a squanderer: the fact that he spends himself constitutes his greatness. - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
Deeds quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#94. You understand, don't you, Mrs. Mackenzie?" Blackwell murmured, his hard mouth barely moving as the intensity of his regard pinned her to her seat. "The deeds of a willful youth."
A thrill of danger kissed her spine.
"Horseshit!" Morley roared.
Dorian turned back to face him, and Farah was able to let out a breath she hadn't been aware she'd been holding as the black spell he'd woven over her suddenly dissipated.
"For shame, Morley," he mockingly chided. "Such language in front of a lady."
"She is my employee," Sir Morley gritted through clenched teeth. "And I'll thank you not to bother about her if you want to keep the vision in the eye you have left."
"I can hardly help myself. She's such a ripe piece of skirt. - Author: Kerrigan Byrne
Deeds quotes by Kerrigan Byrne
#95. He didn't know whether we created God in our own image or whether God created us without quite knowing what he was doing. He believed that God, or whatever brought us here, lives in each of our deeds, in each of our words, and manifests himself in all those things that show us to be more than mere figures of clay. - Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Deeds quotes by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
#96. The first matter that the slave will be brought to account for on the Day of Judgment is the prayer. If it is sound, then the rest of his deeds will be sound. And if it is bad, then the rest of his deeds will be bad. - Author: Al-Tabarani
Deeds quotes by Al-Tabarani

Deeds quotes by Ashok Kallarakkal
#98. Base not your joy on the deeds of others. For what has been given can be taken away. - Author: Peter Steele
Deeds quotes by Peter Steele
#99. If you find that somebody is not grateful for all that you have done for him, then do not get disappointed because often you will find that someone else feels under your obligation though you have done nothing for him and thus your good deeds will be compensated, and Allah will reward you for your goodness. - Author: Ali Ibn Abi Talib
Deeds quotes by Ali Ibn Abi Talib
#100. Like small seeds, small deeds can make a big difference. - Author: Seth Adam Smith
Deeds quotes by Seth Adam Smith
#101. A nation's character is the sum of its splendid deeds; they constitute one common patrimony, the nation's inheritance. They awe foreign powers, they arouse and animate our own people. - Author: Henry Clay
Deeds quotes by Henry Clay
#102. The gospels are not, nor were they ever meant to be, a historical documentation of Jesus's life. These are not eyewitness accounts of Jesus's words and deeds recorded by people who knew him. They are testimonies of faith composed by communities of faith and written many years after the events they describe. Simply put, the gospels tell us about Jesus the Christ, not Jesus the man. - Author: Reza Aslan
Deeds quotes by Reza Aslan
#103. By doing you shall know What it is you have to do. - Author: Thomas Lynch
Deeds quotes by Thomas Lynch
#104. It takes time and deeds, and this involves trust, it involves making ourselves vulnerable to each other…to become sitting ducks for each other----and if one of the ducks is shamming, then the sincere duck will pay in pain---but the deceitful duck, I feel, will be the loser. - Author: Eldridge Cleaver
Deeds quotes by Eldridge Cleaver
#105. Mercy is God's loving response to sinners; and mercy is our loving response to others - and to ourselves - in circumstances of need. To this I would add that mercy, as an experience of love, has an unexpected quality - something unforeseen or unanticipated. We talk about mercy when we feel or offer forgiveness, when we find or give help and assistance, but we also speak about "mercy" when we are surprised by good deeds that catch us unawares and transform our lives for the better. - Author: Mathew N. Schmalz
Deeds quotes by Mathew N. Schmalz
#106. And on this dirty night there were appropriately dirty deeds that not even the rain could wash away. - Author: Terry Pratchett
Deeds quotes by Terry Pratchett
#107. The pain comes from more than the facts of circumstance, or the deeds of others. It comes from within. From understanding what we lost. It comes from knowing how foolish we were - vain, arrogant children - when we thought ourselves happy. It comes from knowing how fragile and doomed the old ways were, just when we thought them and ourselves, secure!. The pain comes from knowing we have never been safe, and therefore will never be safe again. It comes from knowing we can never be children again. - Author: John Jakes
Deeds quotes by John Jakes

Deeds quotes by Christopher Smart
#113. She believed that people born to low caste families were meant to suffer. That was their karma. She had learnt that those who indulge in sinful activities in their previous birth, especially those who humiliated others, would be reborn to low caste families. She firmly believed also that one has to suffer until the sin was paid for through suffering and good deeds. - Author: Swarnakanthi Rajapakse
Deeds quotes by Swarnakanthi Rajapakse
#114. An evil deed is not redeemed by an evil deed in retaliation. - Author: Coretta Scott King
Deeds quotes by Coretta Scott King
#115. Each action we take is an act of self-expression. We often think of large-scale or important deeds as being indications of our real selves, but even how we sharpen a pencil can reveal something about our feelings at that moment. Do we sharpen the pencil carefully or nervously so that it doesn't break? Do we bother to pay attention to what we're doing? How do we sharpen the same pencil when we're angry or in a hurry? Is it the same as when we're calm or unhurried?
Even the smallest movement discloses something about the person executing the action because it is the person who's actually performing the deed. In other words, action doesn't happen by itself, we make it happen, and in doing so we leave traces of ourselves on the activity. The mind and body are interrelated. - Author: H.E. Davey
Deeds quotes by H.E. Davey
#116. I am a Muslim and ... my religion makes me be against all forms of racism. It keeps me from judging any man by the color of his skin. It teaches me to judge him by his deeds . - Author: Malcolm X
Deeds quotes by Malcolm X
#117. A church must be more deeply and practically committed to deeds of compassion and social justice than traditional liberal churches and more deeply and practically committed to evangelism and conversion than traditional fundamentalist churches. This kind of church is profoundly counter-intuitive to American observers. It breaks their ability to categorize (and dismiss) it as liberal or conservative. Only this kind of church has any chance in the non-Christian west. - Author: Timothy Keller
Deeds quotes by Timothy Keller

Deeds quotes by Edmund Spenser
#121. A good deed is a good deed. - Author: John Lee Hancock
Deeds quotes by John Lee Hancock
#122. There can be, if I forebode aright, no power, short of the Divine mercy, to disclose, whether by uttered words, or by type or emblem, the secrets that may be buried with a human heart. The heart, making itself guilty of such secrets, must perforce hold them, until the day when all hidden things shall be revealed. Nor have I so read or interpreted the Holy Writ, as to understand that the disclosure of human thoughts and deeds, then to be made, is intended as part of the retribution. That, surely, were a shallow view of it. No; these revelations, unless I greatly error, are meant merely to promote the intellectual satisfaction of all intelligent beings, who will stand waiting, on that day, to see the dark problem of this life made plain. A knowledge of men's hearts will be needful to the completest solution of that problem. And I conceive, moreover, that the hearts holding such secrets as you speak of will yield them up, at that last day, not with reluctance, but with a joy unutterable. - Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne
Deeds quotes by Nathaniel Hawthorne
#123. And wherever men are fighting against barbarism, tyranny, and massacre, for freedom, law, and honour, let them remember that the fame of their deeds, even though they themselves be exterminated, may perhaps be celebrated as long as the world rolls round. - Author: Winston S. Churchill
Deeds quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#124. We plan, we toil, we suffer - in the hope of what? A camel-load of idol's eyes? The title deeds of Radio City? The empire of Asia? A trip to the moon? No, no, no, no. Simply to wake just in time to smell coffee and bacon and eggs. - Author: J.B. Priestley
Deeds quotes by J.B. Priestley
#125. Deed done is well begun. - Author: Dante Alighieri
Deeds quotes by Dante Alighieri
#126. The deeds of love are less questionable than any action of an individual can be, for, it being founded on the rarest mutual respect, the parties incessantly stimulate each other to a loftier and purer life, and the act in which they are associated must be pure and noble indeed, for innocence and purity can have no equal. In this relation we deal with one whom we respect more religiously even than we respect our better selves, and we shall necessarily conduct as in the presence of God. What presence can be more awful to the lover than the presence of his beloved? - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Deeds quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#127. O may I join the choir invisible of those immortal dead who live again in minds made better by their presence; live in pulses stirred to generosity, in deeds of daring rectitude, in scorn for miserable aims that end with self, in thoughts sublime that pierce the night like stars, and with their mild persistence urge men's search to vaster issues. - Author: George Eliot
Deeds quotes by George Eliot

#129. Santa Claus is anyone who loves another and seeks to make them happy; who gives himself by thought or word or deed in every gift that he bestows; who shares his joys with those who are sad; whose hand is never closed against the needy; whose arm is ever outstretched to aid the week; whose sympathy is quick and genuine in time of trouble; who recognizes a comrade and brother in every man he meets upon life's common road; who lives his life throughout the entire year in the Christmas spirit. - Author: Edwin Osgood Grover

Deeds quotes by Julia Abigail Fletcher Carney
#133. You didn't really hold back on Braga so Pickering could kill him, did you?" Royce asked after the two were left alone in the hallway.
"Of course not. I held off because it's death for a commoner to kill a noble."
"That's what I thought." Royce sounded relieved. "For a minute, I wondered if you'd gone from jumping on the good-deed wagon to leading the whole wagon train. - Author: Michael J. Sullivan

#135. A Human Face I love to view and trace the passions of the soul. On it the spirit writes anew each thought and feeling on a scroll.

Lose all their virtue, lest bad men should boast
Their specious deeds on earth which glory excites,
Or close ambition varnished o'er with zeal. - Author: John Milton
Deeds quotes by John Milton
#140. You don't have to be famous or rich to do a good deed. No matter how small it may seem, each kind deed sends a rippling action of kindness to humanity.

Deeds quotes by Pierce Brown
#147. If experience be consulted, it will be found there is no action, however abominable, that has not received the applause of some people. Parricide - the sacrifice of children - robbery - usurpation - cruelty - intolerance - prostitution, have all in their turn been licensed actions, and have been deemed laudable and meritorious deeds with some nations of the earth. Above all, Religion has consecrated the most unreasonable, the most revolting customs. - Author: Baron D'Holbach
Deeds quotes by Baron D'Holbach

Deeds quotes by Clare Boothe Luce
#151. As soon as men live entirely in accord with the law of love natural to their hearts and now revealed to them, which excludes all resistance by violence, and therefore hold aloof from all participation in violence - as soon as this happens, not only will hundreds be unable to enslave millions, but not even millions will be able to enslave a single individual. Do not resist the evil-doer and take no part in doing so, either in the violent deeds of the administration, in the law courts, the collection of taxes, or above all in soldiering, and no one in the world will be able to enslave you. - Author: Mahatma Gandhi

Deeds quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#157. Kind thoughts are rarer than either kind words or deeds. They imply a great deal of thinking about others. This in itself is rare. But they also imply a great deal of thinking about others without the thoughts being criticisms. This is rarer still. - Author: Frederick William Faber
Deeds quotes by Frederick William Faber
#158. So behave that the odor of your actions may enhance the general sweetness of the atmosphere, that when we behold or scent a flower, we may not be reminded how inconsistent your deeds are with it; for all odor is but one form of advertisement of a moral quality, and if fair actions had not been performed, the lily would not smell sweet. The foul slime stands for the sloth and vice of man, the decay of humanity; the fragrant flower that springs from it, for the purity and courage which are immortal. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Deeds quotes by Henry David Thoreau

I will offer to Thee the sacrifice of Let my heart and my tongue praise Thee; yea, let all my bones say, O Lord, who is like unto Thee? Let them say, and answer Thou me, and say unto my soul, I am thy salvation. Who am I, and what am I? What evil have not been either my deeds, or if not my deeds, my words, or if not my words, my will? But Thou, O Lord, are good and merciful, and Thy right hand had respect unto the depth of my death, and from the bottom of my heart emptied that abyss of corruption. And this Thy whole gift was, to nill what I willed, and to will what Thou willedst. - Author: Augustine Of Hippo

Deeds quotes by Edwin Gaustad
#170. If we no longer talk freely and openly about faith, we won't understand the language or the significance of faith, we'll misinterpret the religious words and deeds of others, and we'll underestimate the power faith can have in the lives of those deeply committed to their spiritual beliefs. This may present a serious risk to a generation whose most troubling conflicts promise to involve people who are primarily motivated by a very different faith. If we don't understand the faith roots of our American culture, how will we be able to defend it against theirs? - Author: Ben Carson
Deeds quotes by Ben Carson

#172. The whole universe was stilled as if listening for a voice. For the space of one heartbeat there was peace on earth. For one fraction of a moment there was no deed of violence wrought on earth, no hatred, no fire, no whirlwind, no pain, no fear. Existence rested against the heart of God, then sighed and journeyed again. - Author: Elizabeth Goudge
Deeds quotes by Elizabeth Goudge
#173. Soldiers in arms! Defenders of our soil!

Deeds quotes by George Crabbe
#174. The realities of the world affected me as visions, and as visions only, while the wild ideas of the land of dreams became, in turn, - not the material of my every-day existence
but in very deed that existence utterly and solely in itself. - Author: Edgar Allan Poe
Deeds quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#175. It's sad that in a world of billions, people can still feel isolated and alone. Sometimes all it takes to brighten up someone's day is a smile or kind word, or the generous actions of a complete stranger. Small things, the tiny details, these are the things that matter in life - the little glint in the eye, curve of a lip, nod of a head, wave of a hand - such minuscule movements have huge ripple effects. - Author: Shaun Hick
Deeds quotes by Shaun Hick
#176. True love of others, according to Jesus, flows out of a love of God. The service of our lives flow out of the loving relationship we have with God. Too often we desire our service to create a loving relationship with God. Yet God does not seek after us because of any good deeds we have done. - Author: Tyler Braun
Deeds quotes by Tyler Braun

Deeds quotes by Mike Pence
#178. As a man cannot lift a mountain, and as a kindly man cannot kill an infant, so a man living the Christian life cannot take part in deeds of violence. Of what value then to him are arguments about the imaginary advantages of doing what is morally impossible for him to do? - Author: Leo Tolstoy
Deeds quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#179. Describe for me, if you can, the nature of this wisdom.'

Anomander snorted impatiently. 'Wisdom is surrender.'

'To what?'

'Complexity.'

'To what end?'

'Swallow it down, spit it out in small measures, to make palatable what many may not otherwise comprehend.'

'An arrogant pose, First Son.'

'I do not claim it, Azathanai, just as I refuse for myself the notion of rule. And, in the name of worship, I am lost in doubt, if not outright disbelief.'

'And why is that?'

'Power does not confer wisdom, nor rightful authority, nor faith in either of the two. If it offers a caress, so too can it by force make one kneel. The former is by nature suspect, while the latter - well, it can at least be said that it does not disguise its truth.'

'You learn for liberty.'

'If I do, then I am the greater fool, because liberty is not in itself a virtue. It wins nothing but the false belief in one's own utterly unassailable independence. even the beasts will not plunge to that depth. No, if I yearn for anything, it is for responsibility. An end to the evasions, the lies spoken in the mind and the lies spoken to others, the endless game of deeds without blame, and all the causes of seeming justice behind which hide venal desires. I yearn for the coward's confession, and understand me well here, Caladan: we are all cowards. - Author: Steven Erikson
Deeds quotes by Steven Erikson

Deeds quotes by Matt Hardy
#191. Let no one out of laziness or continuous worldly occupations miss these holy Sunday gatherings, which God Himself handed down to us, lest he be justly abandoned by God ... If you are detained and do not attend on one occasion, make up for it the next time, bringing yourself to Christ's Church. Otherwise you may remain uncured, suffering from unbelief in your soul because of deeds or words, and failing to approach Christ's surgery to receive ... holy healing. - Author: Gregory Palamas
Deeds quotes by Gregory Palamas
#192. Imperishable moments and immortal deeds, death itself and love stronger than death, will be as though they had never been. The energies of our system will decay, the glory of the sun will be dimmed and the earth tideless and inert, will no longer tolerate the race which has for the moment disturbed its solitude. Man will go down into the pit and all his thoughts will perish. The uneasy consciousness, which in this obscure corner has for a brief space broken the contented silence of the universe, will be at rest. - Author: Arthur Balfour
Deeds quotes by Arthur Balfour
#193. Over-attachment for one's close relatives is simply born of ignorance. Every creature in the world is born alone and dies alone. He experiences the results of his own good and evil deeds and in the end leaves the present body to accept another. The belief that one person is the relation of another is nothing more than illusion. - Author: Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa

#198. Stories start in all sorts of places. Where they begin often tells the reader of what to expect as they progress. Castles often lead to dragons, country estates to deeds of deepest love (or of hate), and ambiguously presented settings usually lead to equally as ambiguous characters and plot, leaving a reader with an ambiguous feeling of disappointment. That's one of the worst kinds. - Author: Rebecca McKinsey
Deeds quotes by Rebecca McKinsey
