A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on faith, good, kindness, nobility, and simplicity

Howe'er it be it seems to me, 'Tis only noble to be good; Kind hearts are more than coronets, And simple faith than Norman blood.

Lord Alfred Tennyson (1809 - 1892)

A Quote by Lita Bane on aim, hope, life, logic, magic, men, nobility, planning, and work

Make no little plans, they have no magic to stir men's blood and will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble and logical plan never dies, but long after we are gone will be a living thing.

A Quote by Leo J. Muir on achievement, character, facts, failure, goals, men, nature, needs, nobility, personality, personality, principles, purpose, reading, reflection, strength, struggle, weakness, and wishes

Great men are those who have had noble purposes to achieve, great tasks to perform, or mighty causes to vindicate. A high expression of self-mastery is but the reflection of these great purposes upon personality and character. The demand upon character molds the essential self-mastery; the goal forges the strength needed to achieve it. . . . In your reading you have probably found the oft-repeated syllogism: 'Great minds have purposes, others have wishes.' . . . Great purposes demand and endow strong minds; wishes need only weak minds. The soundness of this principle is found in the fact that men are not great until they have achieved great things. The strength is the product of the struggle; the endowment follows the achievement. Nature never pays an unearned account; and she never fails to pay one that is earned. In fact, earning is possessing; the two processes are simultaneous.

A Quote by Leo Calvin Rosten on fate, fulfillment, god, happiness, life, luck, nobility, purpose, and talent

The purpose of life is to matter, to be productive, to have it make some difference that you lived at all. Happiness, in the ancient, noble sense, means self-fulfillment-and is given to those who use to the fullest whatever talents God or luck or fate bestowed upon them.

A Quote by Lawrence Gould on belief, civilization, death, force, future, guidance, nobility, spirituality, and wishes

I do not believe the greatest threat to our future is from bombs or guided missiles. I don't think our civilization will die that way. I think it will die when we no longer care when the spiritual forces that make us wish to be right and noble die in our hearts.

A Quote by Lance B. Wickman on honor, justice, mind, nobility, truth, words, and world

Justice - there is an air of nobility about the word. It calls to mind other words like equity, fairness, and truth. It speaks of honor and exactness. It speaks of righteousness. But, sadly, in today's world its application is often anything but noble, honorable, or righteous.

A Quote by Kevin Costner on action, birth, death, horses, nobility, and soldiers

I have seen soldiers panic at the first sight of battle, and a wounded squire pulling arrows out from his wound to fight and save his dying horse. Nobility is not a birth right but is defined by one's action.
