virtue

Virtue quotes
Virtue
A political organization is a transferable commodity. You could not find a better way of killing virtue than by packing it into one of these contraptions which some gang of thieves is sure to find useful.

- Chapman, John Jay
Get it into your head once and for all, my simple and very fainthearted fellow, that what fools call humanness is nothing but a weakness born of fear and egoism; that this chimerical virtue, enslaving only weak men, is unknown to those whose character is formed by stoicism, courage, and philosophy.

- Sade, Marquis De
Truth is the secret of eloquence and of virtue, the basis of moral authority; it is the highest summit of art and life.

- Henri-FrÚdÚric Amiel
Happiness is secured through virtue; it is a good attained by man's own will.

- Aquinas, St. Thomas
Few men have virtue to withstand the highest bidder.

- George Washington
You cannot have Liberty in this world without what you call Moral Virtue, and you cannot have Moral Virtue without the slavery of that half of the human race who hate what you call Moral Virtue.

- Blake, William
The machine has had a pernicious effect upon virtue, pity, and love, and young men used to machines which induce inertia, and fear, are near impotent.

- Dahlberg, Edward
Humility is indeed beatness, a compulsory virtue that no one exhibits unless he has to.

- Burroughs, William S.
Thank God every morning when you get up that you have something to do that day which must be done whether you like it or not. 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.

- Town and Country Sermons. 1861.
Since an intelligence common to us all makes things known to us and formulates them in our minds, honorable actions are ascribed by us to virtue, and dishonorable actions to vice; and only a madman would conclude that these judgments are matters of opinion, and not fixed by nature.

- Cicero, Marcus T.
Tolerance is a very dull virtue. It is boring. Unlike love, it has always had a bad press. It is negative. It merely means putting up with people, being able to stand things.

- Forster, Edward M.
Only the brave know how to forgive; it is the most refined and generous pitch of virtue human nature can arrive at.

- Sterne
Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious.

- Oscar Wilde
The virtue in most request is conformity.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Knowledge, without common sense, says Lee, is folly; without method, it is waste; without kindness, it is fanaticism; without religion, it is death. But with common sense, it is wisdom with method, it is power; with clarity, it is beneficence; with religion, it is virtue, and life, and peace.

- Farrar, Austin
Virtue extends our days: he live two lives who relives his past with pleasure.

- Marcus Valerius Martialis
It is an infantile superstition of the human spirit that virginity would be thought a virtue and not the barrier that separates ignorance from knowledge.

- Voltaire
The function of vice is to keep virtue within reasonable bounds.

- Butler, Samuel
Science is, I verily believe, like virtue, its own exceeding great reward. I can conceive few human states more enviable than that of the man to whom--panting in the foul laboratory, or watching for his life in the tropic forest--Isis shall for a moment lift her sacred veil and show him, once and for ever, the thing he dreamed not of, some law, or even mere hint of a law, explaining one fact: but explaining with it a thousand more, connecting them all with each other and with the mighty whole, till order and meaning shoots through some old chaos of scattered observations. Is not that a joy, a prize, which wealth cannot give nor poverty take away? What it may lead to he knows not. Of what use it may be he knows not. But this he knows, that somewhere it must lead, of some use it will be. For it is a truth.

- Lectures on Science and Superstition. 1866.
Vice stirs up war, virtue fights.

- Vauvenargues, Marquis De
