I was never a pretty girl, so I wasn't the one to get the boy. I used to cast myself as a good sport. Sometimes I wonder if I do that too much with roles I play, because if I'm absolutely truthful, I quite like being the best friend, or the supporting role, and actually I ought to gear-change and make myself the leading role.
Art ought never to be considered except in its relations with its ideal beauty.
Alfred de Vigny
The pursuit, even of the best things, ought to be calm and tranquil.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Men ought either to be indulged or utterly destroyed, for if you merely offend them they take vengeance, but if you injure them greatly they are unable to retaliate, so that the injury done to a man ought to be such that vengeance cannot be feared.
If your knees aren't green by the end of the day, you ought to seriously re-examine your life.
A community is like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm.
Half our mistakes in life arise from feeling where we ought to think, and thinking where we ought to feel.
John Churton Collins
True friendship ought never to conceal what it thinks.
One who is injured ought not to return the injury, for on no account can it be right to do an injustice; and it is not right to return an injury, or to do evil to any man, however much we have suffered from him.
The serpent, the king, the tiger, the stinging wasp, the small child, the dog owned by other people, and the fool: these seven ought not to be awakened from sleep.
The mind ought sometimes to be diverted that it may return to better thinking.
Neutrality is a negative word. It does not express what America ought to feel. We are not trying to keep out of trouble; we are trying to preserve the foundations on which peace may be rebuilt.
We ought to do good to others as simply as a horse runs, or a bee makes honey, or a vine bears grapes season after season without thinking of the grapes it has borne.
Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.
Pope John Paul II
'Sex' is as important as eating or drinking and we ought to allow the one appetite to be satisfied with as little restraint or false modesty as the other.
Marquis de Sade
Texas will again lift it's head and stand among the nations. It ought to do so, for no country upon the globe can compare with it in natural advantages.
Most of us don't mind doing what we ought to do when it doesn't interfere with what we want to do, but it takes discipline and maturity to do what we ought to do whether we want to or not.
Joseph B. Wirthlin

Duty, Honor, Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.
The highest possible stage in moral culture is when we recognize that we ought to control our thoughts.
Politics ought to be the part-time profession of every citizen who would protect the rights and privileges of free people and who would preserve what is good and fruitful in our national heritage.

Henry Ward Beecher
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
