virtue

A Quote by Vicomte de Valmont on beauty, feeling, hope, innocence, inspiration, respect, trust, virtue, and yielding

What then have I done? What, except yield to a natural feeling, inspired by beauty, sanctioned by virtue and kept at all times within the bounds of respect. It's innocent expression prompted not by hope but by trust.

A Quote by unknown on business, chastity, christ, contentment, discretion, family, fatherhood, friendship, god, happiness, hospitality, jesus, needs, providence, purity, rest, reward, saints, study, virtue, work, and world

The true gentleman is God's servant. The world's master and his own man. Virtue is his business, study his recreation. Contentment his rest and happiness his reward. God is his father, Jesus Christ his Savior, the Saints his brethren, and all that need him his friends. Devotion is his chaplain, chastity his chamberlain, sobriety his butler, temperance his work, hospitality his housekeeper, providence his steward, purity his mistress of the house, and discretion his porter, to be let in and out as most fit; thus is his whole family made up of virtue and he is the master of the house.

A Quote by unknown on bankers, good, honesty, trouble, virtue, and women

Can a woman be too virtuous? Can a bank cashier be too honest? Can a witness be too truthful ? Surely not. The trouble is that none of us is half as good as we ought to be.

A Quote by unknown on intelligence, people, virtue, and work

People don't grow wealthy or powerful through virtue or intelligence or hard work, though those things do figure in. They grow wealthy and powerful because they know how to take what's in front of them and shape it, and use it.
