Quotes: 1 - 14 of 14 Pages: 1 
Conscientious people are apt to see their duty in that which is the most painful course.
George Eliot
Do the duty which lieth nearest to thee! Thy second duty will already have become clearer
Thomas Carlyle
Do your duty today and repent tomorrow
Mark Twain
I think a man's duty is to find out where the truth is, or if he cannot, at least to take the best possible human doctrine and the hardest to disprove, and to ride on this like a raft over the waters of life
Plato
It is humankind's duty to respect all life, not only animals have feelings but even also trees and plants
Michel de Montaigne
Our business in this world is not to succeed, but to continue to fail in good spirits.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Our duty is to preserve what the past has had to say for itself, and to say for ourselves what shall be true for the future
John Ruskin
Professional reviewers read so many bad books in the course of duty that they get an unhealthy craving for arresting phrases.
Evelyn Waugh
True happiness is to understand our duties toward God and man; to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence on the future; not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears, but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is abundantly sufficient
Seneca
We are face to face with our destiny and we must meet it with a high and resolute courage. For us is the life of action, of strenuous performance of duty; let us live in the harness, striving mightily; let us rather run the risk of wearing out than rusting out.
Theodore Roosevelt
We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men
George Orwell
We in this country, in this generation, are--by destiny rather than choice--the watchmen on the walls of world freedom. We ask, therefore, that we may be worthy of our power and responsibility, that we may exercise our strength with wisdom and restraint, and that we may achieve in our time and for all time the ancient vision of "peace on earth, good will toward men." That must always be our goal, and the righteousness of our cause must always underlie our strength. For as was written long ago: "except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain."
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
When law and duty are one, united by religion, you never become fully conscious, fully aware of yourself. You are always a little less than an individual.
Frank Herbert
You can't, in sound morals, condemn a man for taking care of his own integrity. It is his clear duty.
Joseph Conrad
