A Quote by Philip James Bailey on beginning, deed, feeling, god, heart, life, and time

We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best. Life 's but a means unto an end; that end Beginning, mean, and end to all things, - God.

A Quote by Orson Hyde on art, deed, doubt, life, and painting

No doubt many of you have had your portraits penciled upon the canvas by an artist, and after he had drawn the outlines, without filling it up or embellishing at all, you looked at it and said, "That is not myself, it does not look like me, it belongs to some else." But when it came to be filled up and embellished, perhaps you were ready to own it. Will you be willing to own the lasting picture of yourself which you are daily painting by your thoughts and deed? Will you be ready to own the self- portrait created by your life?

Whatever our creed, we feel that no good deed can by any possibility go unrewarded, no evil deed unpunished.

A Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes on deed, food, heaven, hunger, immortality, labor, life, men, and words

These are the hands whose sturdy labor brings The peasant's food, the golden pomp of kings; This is the page whose letters shall be seen, Changed by the sun to words of living green; This is the scholar whose immortal pen Spells the first lesson hunger taught to men; These are the lines that heaven-commanded Toil Shows on his deed, - the charter of the soil!

A Quote by Nicholas Grimald on deed, endurance, glory, life, pain, pleasure, and shame

In working well, if travail you sustain, Into the wind shall lightly pass the pain; But of the deed the glory shall remain, And cause your name with worthy wights to reign. In working wrong, if pleasure you attain, The pleasure soon shall fade, and void as vain; But of the deed throughout the life the shame Endures, defacing you with foul defame.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on babies, darkness, deed, facts, life, potential, and words

When we don't like to face up to hard facts, we use soft words. We do not speak about killing a baby within the womb, but about "termination of potential life." Words are often multiplied to try to cover dark deeds.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on birth, darkness, deed, health, parenthood, people, and words

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."
