A Quote by Alfred Armand Montapert on compassion, deed, goodness, and love

Alfred Montapert (1906 -)

A Quote by Alexander Pope on action, deed, and judgment

Judge not of actions by their mere effect; Dive to the center, and the cause detect. Great deeds from meanest springs may take their course, And smallest virtues from a mighty source.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on abuse, deed, humanity, imagination, jesus, money, nobility, purity, selfishness, wealth, and world

I am absolutely convinced that no amount of wealth in the world can help humanity move forward, even in the hands of the most devoted worker. The example of great and pure individuals is the only thing that can lead us to noble thoughts and deeds. Money only appeals to selfishness and irresistably invites abuse. Can anyone imagine Moses, Jesus or Ghandi armed with the money-bags of Carnegie?

A Quote by Albert Camus on beginning, deed, and restaurants

All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door.

A Quote by Adelaide Love on age, deed, direction, doubt, evolution, faith, god, learning, men, power, science, and scientists

Beyond Electrons The new believers of our age are they, The men of science, who have come to learn There is a will that points the cosmic ray, A power that directs what they discern In atmosphere, in star and wave and sod; Beyond electrons they discover-God. From microscope and tube evolves a faith Of modern days, sustaining ancient creeds; It is the scientist who makes a wraith Of doubt, and find a God behind His deeds.
