Responsibility quotes
Responsibility
In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility -- I welcome it.

- Kennedy, John F.
The aim of art, the aim of a life can only be to increase the sum of freedom and responsibility to be found in every man and in the world. It cannot, under any circumstances, be to reduce or suppress that freedom, even temporarily. No great work has ever been based on hatred and contempt. On the contrary, there is not a single true work of art that has not in the end added to the inner freedom of each person who has known and loved it.

- Albert Camus
Power without responsibility -- the prerogative of the harlot throughout the ages.

- Baldwin, Stanley
When we have begun to take charge of our lives, to own ourselves, there is no longer any need to ask permission of someone.

- O'Neil, George
To decide to be at the level of choice, is to take responsibility for your life and to be in control of your life.

- Dale, Arbie M.
Forming characters! Whose? Our own or others? Both. And in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.

- Elihu Burritt
I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have ? life itself.

- Anderson, Walter
I will not surrender responsibility for my life and my actions.

- Powell, John Enoch
You must choose the thoughts and actions that will lead you on to success.

- Allen, R. C.
God, Private Enterprise and government have made me what I am, and now they have to take some of the blame.

- Baluch, Joy
In any society, the artist has a responsibility. His effectiveness is certainly limited and a painter or writer cannot change the world. But they can keep an essential margin of non-conformity alive. Thanks to them the powerful can never affirm that everyone agrees with their acts. That small difference is important.

- Bunuel, Luis
One of the annoying things about believing in free will and individual responsibility is the difficulty of finding somebody to blame your problems on. And when you do find somebody, it's remarkable how often his picture turns up on your driver's license.

- O'Rourke, P. J.
Accountability breeds response-ability.

- Covey, Stephen R.
Men must necessarily be the active agents of their own well-being and well-doing... they themselves must in the very nature of things be their own best helpers.

- Smiles, Samuel
Independence is the recognition of the fact that yours is the responsibility of judgment and nothing can help you escape it.

- Ayn Rand
I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge my duties as King as I would wish to do without the help and support of the woman I love. I now quit altogether public affairs, and I lay down my burden.

- Edward VIII
With great power comes great responsibility.

- Stan Lee
Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.

- Brown, Les
A human being's first responsibility is to shake hands with himself.

- Winkler, Henry
With Christianity came in the thought that domination meant responsibility, that responsibility demanded virtue. The words which denoted Rank came to denote, likewise, high moral excellencies. The nobilis, or man who was known, and therefore subject to public opinion, was bound to behave nobly. The gentle-man--gentile-man--who respected his own gens, or family, or pedigree, was bound to be gentle. The courtier who had picked up at court some touch of Roman civilisation from Roman ecclesiastics was bound to be courteous. He who held an "honour," or "edel" of land, was bound to be honourable; and he who held a "weorthig," or "worthy," thereof, was bound himself to be worthy.
