deed

A Quote by David Elmore on bravery, commitment, confidence, death, deed, justice, murder, nations, punishment, reward, and vengeance

The death penalty is not about vengeance or deterrence. It is about justice. It is a measure of a nations's civility and moral backbone that it rewards and punishes in due measure for great deeds and heinous crimes. So, along with Nobel prizes for great accomplishments, humans must also be brave enough and morally confident enough to exact severe penalties for those who commit the worst deed known to humankind: murder.

A Quote by David B. Haight on deed, justice, love, and thinking

Someone has written, "Love is a verb." It requires doing - not just saying and thinking. The test is in what one does, how one acts, for love is conveyed in word and deed.

A Quote by Clare Boothe Luce on creativity, deed, egotism, facts, idealism, lies, nature, nobility, romance, speech, and words

Lying increases the creative faculties, expands the ego, lessens the friction of social contacts. . . . It is only in lies, wholeheartedly and bravely told, that human nature attains through words and speech the forebearance, the nobility, the romance, the idealism, that-being what it is-it falls so short of in fact and in deed.
