A Quote by Baha'u'llah on oneness, concourse of light, light, detachment, one soul, mouth, feet, deeds, inmost being, and actions

Since We have created you all from one same substance it is incumbent on you to be even as one soul, to walk with the same feet, eat with the same mouth and dwell in the same land, that from your inmost being, by your deeds and actions, the signs of oneness and the essence of detachment may be made manifest. Such is My counsel to you, O concourse of light!

Baha'u'llah (1817 - 1892)

A Quote by St. Thérèse de Lisieux on love, deeds, and flowers

"Love proves itself by deeds, so how am I to show my love? Great deeds are forbidden me. The only way I can prove my love is by scattering flowers and these flowers are every little sacrifice, every glance and word, and the doing of the least actions for love."

St. Thérèse de Lisieux

A Quote by John Ruskin on nations, history, and deeds

Great nations write their autobiographies in three manuscripts, the book of their deeds, the book of their words and the book of their art. Not one of these books can be understood unless we read the two others, but of the three the only trustworthy one is the last.

John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

A Quote by unknown on deeds, labor, roles, construction, and destruction

I watched them tearing a building down
A gang of men in a busy town.
With a Ho-Heave-Ho, a lusty yell
They swung a beam - and a side wall fell.
I asked the foreman, "Are these men skilled
And the men you'd hire if you had to build?"
"For the most part," he said, "No indeed.
Just common labor is all I need.
I can easily wreck in a day or two
What builders have taken a year to do."
And I thought to myself, as I went away,
Which of these roles have I tried to play?
Am I a builder, who works with care,
Measuring life by the rule and square?
Am I shaping my deeds to a well made plan?
Patiently doing the things I can?
Or, am I a wrecker, who walks the town
Content with the labor of tearing down?
