deed

A Quote by Henry Clay on character, deed, nations, and people

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.

A Quote by Helen Adams Keller on blindness, church, deed, doubt, emptiness, faith, god, good, life, love, purpose, resignation, and sacrifice

Sick or well, blind or seeing, bond or free, we are here for a purpose and however we are situated, we please God better with useful deeds than with many prayers or pious resignation. The temple or church is empty unless the good of life fills it . . . holy if only . . . we offer the only sacrifices ever commanded-the love that is stronger than hate and the faith that overcometh doubt.

A Quote by Helen Adams Keller on deed, happiness, heart, humanity, knowledge, life, and progress

Knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge - broad deep knowledge - is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low. To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man's progress is to feel the great heart-throbs of humanity through the centuries; and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life.

A Quote by Grenville Kleiser on appreciation, circumstances, day, deed, faults, forgiveness, friendship, generosity, sacrifice, sympathy, present, and time

There are many fine things which you mean to do some day, under what you think will be more favorable circumstances. But the only time that is surely yours is the present, hence this is the time to speak the word of appreciation and sympathy, to do the generous deed, to forgive the fault of a thoughtless friend, to sacrifice self a little more for others.

A Quote by George Matthew Adams on character, deed, goodwill, kindness, memory, understanding, and worth

It's what each of us sows, and how, that gives to us character and prestige. Seeds of kindness, goodwill, and human understanding, planted in fertile soil, spring up into deathless friendships, big deeds of worth, and a memory that will not soon fade. . . .
