Take responsibility for every area of your life. 19 Be bold and courageous. When you look back on your life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the ones you did. 20 Take good care of those you love. 21 Don't do anything that wouldn't make your Mom proud.

A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle; and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.

A Quote by George Orwell on commitment, defeat, impossibility, life, love, loyalty, perfection, and preparation

The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection, that one is sometimes willing to commit sins for the sake of loyalty, that one does not push asceticism to the point where it makes friendly intercourse impossible, and that one is prepared in the end to be defeated and broken up by life, which is the inevitable price of fastening one's love upon other human individuals.

A Quote by George Orwell on brothers, emotion, enemies, fear, future, good, imagination, love, loyalty, men, power, victory, and world

The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. . . . Power is not a means; it is an end . . . not power over things, but over men. . . . In our world there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement. . . . There will be no loyalty, except loyalty toward the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother. . . . Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever.

A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on boredom, earth, good, hunger, life, love, loyalty, luxury, necessity, needs, paradise, spirit, water, and wilderness

The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only paradise we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need, if only we had the eyes to see. . . . No, wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, as vital to our lives as water and good bread.

A Quote by E. B. White on communism, control, health, loyalty, needs, praise, security, testing, and thought

Security, for me, took a tumble not when I read that there were Communists in Hollywood but when I read your editorial in praise of loyalty testing and thought control. If a man is in health, he doesn't need to take anybody else's temperature to know where he is going.

E. B. White (1899 - 1985)
