reward

A Quote by James Truslow Adams on chance, children, country, dreams, individuality, labor, and reward

The whole of the American Dream has been based on the chance to get ahead, for one's self or one's children. Would this country have ever reached the point it has if the individual had always been refused the rewards of his labors and dangers?

James Adams (1878 - 1949)

A Quote by J. Hawes on action, birth, character, good, honor, parenthood, principles, reward, talent, virtue, and wealth

A good character is, in all cases, the fruit of personal exertion. It is not inherited from parents; it is not created by external advantages; it is no necessary appendage of birth, wealth, talents, or station; but it is the result of one's own endeavors-the fruit and reward of good principles manifested in a course of virtuous and honorable action.

A Quote by George Washington on existence, interest, patriotism, principles, reward, present, and war

I know [patriotism] exists, and I know it has done much in the present contest. But a great and lasting war can never be supported on this principle alone. It must be aided by a prospect of interest, or some reward.

A Quote by Eric Hoffer on action, age, books, giving, learning, life, opportunity, reward, skill, society, stability, and time

Perhaps a modern society can remain stable only by eliminating adolescence, by giving its young, from the age of ten, the skills, responsibilities, and rewards of grownups, and opportunities for action in all spheres of life. Adolescence should be a time of useful action, while book learning and scholarship should be a preoccupation of adults.
