deed

A Quote by William Morris on complaints, darkness, day, deed, fear, gold, love, wonder, and world

Love is Enough Love is enough: though the world be a-waning, And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining, Though the skies be too dark for dim eyes to discover The gold-cups and daisies fair blooming thereunder, Though the hills be held shadows, and the sea a dark wonder, And this day draw a veil over all deeds passed over, Yet their hands shall not tremble, their feet shall not falter: The void shall not weary, the fear shall not alter These lips and these eyes of the loved and the lover.

William Morris (1834 - 1896)

For blessings ever wait on virtuous deeds,  And though late, a sure reward succeeds.

A Quote by W. E. B. Du Bois on deed, thought, vision, women, and world

When in this world a man comes forward with a thought, a deed, a vision, we ask not how does he look, but what is his message?. . . The world still wants to ask that a woman primarily be pretty. . . .

We can discover this meaning in life in three different ways: (1) by doing a deed; (2) by experiencing a value; and (3) by suffering.

A Quote by unknown on deed, questions, and responsibility

RESPONSIBILITY Can you put the spider's web in its place, that once has been swept away? Can you put the apple again on the bough, which fell at our feet today? Can you put the lily-cup back on the stem, and cause it to live and grow? Can you mend the butterfly's broken wing, that you crushed with a hasty blow? Can you put the bloom again on the grape, or the grape again on the vine? Can You put the dewdrops back on the flower, and make them sparkle and shine? Can you put the petals back on the rose? If you could, would it smell as sweet? Can you put the flour again in the husk, and show me the ripened wheat? Can you put the kernel back in the nut or the broken egg in its shell? Can you put the honey back in the comb, and cover with wax each cell? Can you put the perfume back in the vase, when once it has sped away? Can you put the corn-silk back on the corn, or the down on the catkins-say? You think that my questions are trifling, well, let me ask you another one: Can a hasty word ever be unsaid, or a deed unkind undone? -Anon.
