A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
How far that little candle throws its beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
A thousand words will not leave so deep an impression as one deed.
An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An atheist believes that deed must be done instead of prayer said. An atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty vanished, war eliminated.
Madalyn Murray O'Hair
As one whose husband and mother-in-law have died the victims of murder and assassination, I stand firmly and unequivocally opposed to the death penalty for those convicted of capital offenses... An evil deed is not redeemed by an evil deed of retaliation.
Coretta Scott King
The light of lights looks always on the motive, not the deed, the shadow of shadows on the deed alone.
William Butler Yeats
We spend our lives, all of us, waiting for the great day, the great battle, or the deed of power. But that external consummation is not given to many: nor is it necessary. So long as our being is tensed, directed with passion, towards that which is the spirit of all things, then that spirit will emerge from our own hidden, nameless effort.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
The smallest deed is better than the greatest intention.
I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime.
Even a smile is a good deed.
Talking isn't doing. It is a kind of good deed to say well; and yet words are not deeds.
No good deed goes unpunished.
Clare Boothe Luce
A wrong concept misleads the understanding; a wrong deed degrades the whole man, and may eventually demolish the structure of the human ego.
A good picture is equivalent to a good deed.
Vincent Van Gogh
The last temptation is the greatest treason: to do the right deed for the wrong reason.
T. S. Eliot
With every deed you are sowing a seed, though the harvest you may not see.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Better do a good deed near at home than go far away to burn incense.
L. Ram Saran Das was a member of the revolutionary party which was held responsible for many a violent deed. But this by no means proves that revolutionaries are bloodthirsty monsters, seeking pleasure in destruction.
It is futile to judge a kind deed by its motives. Kindness can become its own motive. We are made kind by being kind.
Try to make at least one person happy every day. If you cannot do a kind deed, speak a kind word. If you cannot speak a kind word, think a kind thought. Count up, if you can, the treasure of happiness that you would dispense in a week, in a year, in a lifetime!
Lawrence G. Lovasik
There is something calming and emotionally restoring when you focus on gratitude for a known deed that helped you, instead of fear of the unknown.
Don't take the will for the deed; get the deed.
Maybe you weren't born with a silver spoon in your mouth, but like every American, you carry a deed to 635 million acres of public lands. That's right. Even if you don't own a house or the latest computer on the market, you own Yosemite, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and many other natural treasures.
Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.
One should see the world, and see himself as a scale with an equal balance of good and evil. When he does one good deed the scale is tipped to the good - he and the world is saved. When he does one evil deed the scale is tipped to the bad - he and the world is destroyed.
While we are living in the present, we must celebrate life every day, knowing that we are becoming history with every work, every action, every deed.
