fidelity

A Quote by Helen Adams Keller on fidelity and true happiness

Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

A Quote by Rev. Brian Kolodiejchuk on spirituality, love, commitment, fidelity, vulnerability, mother teresa, christ, and faith

The tendency in our spiritual life but also our more general attitude toward love is that our feelings are all that is going on. And so to us the totality of love is what we feel. But to really love someone requires commitment, fidelity and vulnerability. Mother Teresa wasn't "feeling" Christ's love, and she could have shut down. But she was up at 4:30 every morning for Jesus, and still writing to him, "Your happiness is all I want."

The lover heals the world not by a vague and abstract love for everybody and everything, but by becoming passionate and vowing fidelity to concrete relationships, persons, institutions, and places.

A Quote by Milan Kundera on ancestry, fidelity, history, inspiration, thought, and understanding

We don't know when our name came into being or how some distant ancestor acquired it. We don't understand our name at all; we don't know its history, and yet we bear it with exalted fidelity. We merge with it, we like it, we are ridiculously proud of it, as if we had thought it up ourselves in a moment of brilliant inspiration.

A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on body, fidelity, soul, and world

Take care of your body with steadfast fidelity. The soul must see through these eyes alone, and if they are dim, the whole world is clouded.

A Quote by Henry Ward Beecher on animals, dogs, fidelity, happiness, horses, judgment, life, love, and people

For fidelity, devotion, love, many a two-legged animal is below the dog and the horse. Happy would it be for thousands of people if they could stand at last before the Judgment Seat and say "I have loved as truly and I have lived as decently as my dog." And yet we call them "only brutes"!

A Quote by Harry Emerson Fosdick, D.D. on accuracy, change, courage, cowardice, ethics, facts, falsehood, fidelity, honesty, life, love, loyalty, persistence, science, theft, and truth

Granted the endless variations of moral customs, still the essential standards persist. As in a scientific laboratory, all else may change but the standards are unalterable- disinterested love of truth, fidelity to facts, accuracy in measurement, exactness of verification-so, in life as a whole, the towering ethical criteria remain unshaken. Falsehood is never better than truth, theft better than than honesty, treachery better than loyalty, cowardice better than courage.

Harry Fosdick (1878 - 1979)
