Virtuous Quotations

It is a grand mistake to think of being great without goodness and I pronounce it as certain that there was never a truly great man that was not at the same time truly virtuous.
Benjamin Franklin

The being cannot be termed rational or virtuous, who obeys any authority, but that of reason.
Mary Wollstonecraft

Virtue is something you have to get good at, like playing the trombone or tolerating bores at parties. Being a virtuous human being takes practice; and those who are brilliant at being human (what Christians call the saints) are the virtuosi of the moral sphere - the Pavarottis and Maradonas of virtue.
Terry Eagleton

It takes about four days of virtuous living to create a little weight loss. That also happens to be the time required to get used to eating less. In other words, if you can get past day three of a fitness regimen, things improve.
Martha Beck

Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore we are saved by love.
Reinhold Niebuhr
