Ambition and love are the wings to great deeds. Johann von Goethe, writer

Nothing leads to good that is not natural. Friedrich von Schiller, poet

No one can be good for long if goodness is not in demand. Bertolt Brecht, poet

What is good? All that enhances the feeling of power, the Will to Power, and the power itself in man. What is bad? All that proceeds from weakness. What is happiness? The feeling that power is increasing--that resistance has been overcome. Not contentment, but more power; not peace at any price, but war; not virtue, but competence. The first principle of our humanism: The weak and the failures shall perish. They ought even to be helped to perish. Friedrich Nietzsche, philosopher

Seek always to do some good, somewhere. Every man has to seek in his own way to realize his true worth.You must give some time to your fellow man. Even if it's a little thing; do something for those who have need of a man's help, something for which you get no pay but privilege of doing it. For remember, you don't live in a world all your own. Your brothers live here, too. Albert Schweitzer, theologian

In goodness there are all kinds of wisdom. Euripides, poet

In the world of knowledge, the essential Form of Good is the limit of our inquiries, and can barely be perceived; but, when perceived, we cannot help concluding that it is in every case the source of all that is bright and beautiful --in the visible world giving birth to light and its master, and in the intellectual world dispensing, immediately and with full authority, truth and reason --and that whosoever would act wisely, either in private or in public, must set this Form of Good before his eyes. Plato, philosopher

What a strange illusion it is to suppose that beauty is goodness. Leo Tolstoy, novelist

Though it is possible to utter words only with the intention to fulfill the will of God, it is very difficult not to think about the impression which they will produce on men and not to form them accordingly. But deeds you can do quite unknown to men, only for God. And such deeds are the greatest joy that a man can experience. Leo Tolstoy, novelist

Ugly deeds are most estimable when hidden. Blaise Pascal, philosopher

There are few good women who do not tire of their role. Francois de la Rochefoucauld, writer

That man is good who does good to others; if he suffers on account of the good he does, he is very good; if he suffers at the hands of those to whom he has done good, then his goodness is so great that it could be enhanced only by greater sufferings; and if he should die at their hands, his virtue can go no further: it is heroic, it is perfect. Jean De La Bruyere, philosopher

To conceive the good, in fact, is not sufficient; it must be made to succeed among men. To accomplish this less pure paths must be followed. Ernest Renan, philosopher

At the bottom of the heart of every human being, from earliest infancy until the tomb, there is something that goes on indomitably expecting, in the teeth of all experience of crimes committed, suffered, and witnessed, that good and not evil will be done Simone Weil, philosopher

Under the name of truth I also included beauty, virtue, and every kind of goodness, so that for me it was a question of a conception of the relationship between grace and desire. The conviction that had come to me was that when one hungers for bread one does not receive stones. But at that time I had not read the Gospel.Just as I was certain that desire has in itself an efficacy in the realm of spiritual goodness whatever its form, I thought it was also possible that it might not be effective in any other realm. Simone Weil, philosopher

What monster have we here? A great Deed at this hour of day? A great just deed -- and not for pay? Absurd -- or insincere? Elizabeth Barrett Browning, poet

We all have known good critics, who have stamped out poet's hopes; Good statesmen, who pulled ruin on the state; Good patriots, who, for a theory, risked a cause; Good kings, who disemboweled for a tax; Good Popes, who brought all good to jeopardy; Good Christians, who sat still in easy-chairs; And damned the general world for standing up. Now, may the good God pardon all good men! Elizabeth Barrett Browning, poet
