Rightly Quotations

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
Aristotle

Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength; and strength is not used rightly when it serves only to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.
Henry Ward Beecher

It is not living that matters, but living rightly.
Socrates

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause.
Mark Twain
