A Quote by Lecomte Du Nouy on curiosity, deed, influence, intelligence, prophets, sacrifice, and saints

Man is not merely a combination of appetites, instincts, passions and curiosity. Something more is needed to explain great human deeds, virtues, sacrifices, martyrdom. There is an element in the great mystics, the saints, the prophets, whose influence has been felt for centuries, which escapes mere intelligence.

A Quote by Konosuke Matsushita on achievement, behavior, clarity, conscience, courage, deed, heart, integrity, justice, leadership, needs, order, strength, and thought

A person who sins neither in thought nor deed, and is fair and just, gains enormous courage and strength. As a leader, you need courage born of integrity in order to be capable of powerful leadership. To achieve this courage, you must search your heart, and make sure your conscience is clear and your behavior is beyond reproach.

A Quote by John Greenleaf Whittier on beauty, children, deed, duty, faith, fatherhood, god, good, humility, justice, legends, life, mercy, nature, needs, praise, prayer, purity, reason, sacrifice, service, slavery, tenderness, and trust

We live by faith; but Faith is not the slave Of text and legend. Reason's voice and God's, Nature's and Duty's, never are at odds. What asks our Father of His children, save Justice and mercy and humility, A reasonable service of good deeds, Pure living, tenderness to human needs, Reverence and trust, and prayer for light to see The Master's footprints in our daily ways? No knotted scourge nor sacrificial knife, But the calm beauty of an ordered life Whose very breathing is unworded praise! - A life that stands as all true lives have stood Firm-rooted in the faith that God is Good.
