Virtue quotes
Virtue
If you consider what are called the virtues in mankind, you will find their growth is assisted by education and cultivation.

- Xenophon
All virtue is summed up in dealing justly.

- Aristotle
Silence is the virtue of fools.

- Sir Francis Bacon
There is a heroism in crime as well as in virtue. Vice and infamy have their altars and their religion.

- Hazlitt, William
Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice.

People who are in a fortunate position always attribute virtue to what makes them so happy.

- Galbraith, John Kenneth
Beauty, unaccompanied by virtue, is as a flower without perfume.

- Proverb, French
Hope is both the earliest and the most indispensable virtue inherent in the state of being alive. If life is to be sustained hope must remain, even where confidence is wounded, trust impaired.

- Erik H. Erikson
Jenny replied to this with a bitterness which might have surprized a judicious person, who had observed the tranquillity with which she bore all the affronts to her chastity; but her patience was perhaps tired out, for this is a virtue which is very apt to be fatigued by exercise.

- Henry Fielding
ROSTRUM, n. In Latin, the beak of a bird or the prow of a ship. In America, a place from which a candidate for office energetically expounds the wisdom, virtue and power of the rabble.

- Ambrose Bierce
Solitude cherishes great virtues and destroys little ones.

- Smith, Sydney
If we've learned anything in the past quarter century, it is that we cannot federalize virtue.

- Bush, George
The rich man is always sold to the institution which makes him rich. Absolutely speaking, the more money, the less virtue.

- Thoreau, Henry David
One ought to seek out virtue for its own sake, without being influenced by fear or hope, or by any external influence. Moreover, that in that does happiness consist.

- Diogenes Laertius
True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes. Rather the firm resolve of virtue and reason.

- Whitehead, Alfred North
Purity is the feminine, truth the masculine of honor.

- Hare, David
Being forced to work, and forced to do your best, will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues which the idle will never know.

- Kingsley, Charles
Virtue craves a steep and thorny path.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
I May therefore venture to say that the air of reality seems to me to be the supreme virtue of the novel—the merit upon which all its other merits. . . hopelessly and submissively depend. If it be not there they are all as nothing, and if these be there, they owe their effect to the success with which the author has produced the illusion of life. The cultivation of this success, the study of this exquisite process, form, to my taste, the beginning and the end of the art of the novelist. They are his inspiration, his despair, his reward, his torment, and his delight.

- Henry James
Patience, the beggar's virtue, shall find no harbor here.

- Massinger, Philip
