deed

A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on deed, justice, and life

Just as the sand-dunes, heaped one upon another, hide each the first, so in life the former deeds are quickly hidden by those that follow after.

A Quote by Malcolm X on behavior, colors, deed, islam, judgment, laws, nature, racism, and religion

I am a Muslim and . . . my religion makes me be against all forms of racism. It keeps me from judging any man by the color of his skin. It teaches me to judge him by his deeds and his conscious behavior. And it teaches me to be for the rights of all human beings, but especially the Afro-American human being, because my religion is a natural religion, and the first law of nature is self-preservation.

A Quote by Marquise Magdeleine de Sablé on action, deed, glory, grace, indifference, principles, vanity, and virtue

It is better that great peoples should seek out glory, or even vanity, in their deeds, than that they should remain indifferent . For even if they are not incited to act upon virtuous principles, at least there is the saving grace that they will do things they might not have done had not vanity prompted their actions.

A Quote by Marquise Magdeleine de Sablé on behavior, deed, enemies, good, and gratitude

Often our good deeds make enemies for us, and the ungrateful person despises us on two counts; for he is not only unwilling to acknowledge the gratitude he owes us: he does not want to have his benefactor as witness to his thankless behavior.

Know ye the land where the cypress and myrtle Are emblems of deeds that are done in their clime? Where the rage of the vulture, the love of the turtle, Now melt into sorrow, now madden to crime!

I know that age to age succeeds, Blowing a noise of tongues and deeds, A dust of systems and of creeds.

A Quote by Lloyd Cassel Douglas on deed, faith, justice, possessions, value, and worth

Faith is not like a deed to a house in which one may live with full rights of possession. It is more like a kit of tools with which a man may build him a house. The tools will be worth just what he does with them. When he lays them down, they will have no value until he takes them up again.
