A Quote by James Russell Lowell on bravery, cowardice, fame, justice, nobility, profit, prosperity, sharing, spirit, and truth

Then to side with Truth is noble when we share her wretched crust, Ere her cause bring fame and profit, and 't is prosperous to be just; Then it is the brave man chooses, while the coward stands aside, Doubting in his abject spirit, till his Lord is crucified.

A Quote by J. Kenfield Morley on beauty, belief, children, confidence, day, enthusiasm, friendship, good, happiness, health, justice, life, money, sharing, wives, and work

I believe the recipe for happiness to be just enough money to pay the monthly bills you acquire, a little surplus to give you confidence, a little too much work each day, enthusiasm for your work, a substantial share of good health, a couple of real friends, and a wife and children to share life's beauty with you.

A Quote by Isaiah Bowman on citizenship, clarity, conscience, education, good, maturity, nobility, respect, sharing, society, and world

Citizenship comes first today in our crowded world. . . . No man can enjoy the privileges of education and thereafter with a clear conscience break his contract with society. To respect that contract is to be mature, to strengthen it is to be a good citizen, to do more than your share under it is to be noble.
