Virtue quotes
" Consider your origin; you were not born to live like brutes, but to follow virtue and knowledge. "

Dante Alighieri
" The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts, therefore guard accordingly; and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue, and reasonable nature. "

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
" Perfection of moral virtue does not wholly take away the passions, but regulates them. "

Saint Thomas Aquinas
" Certainly virtue is like precious odors, most fragrant when they are incensed, or crushed: for prosperity doth best discover vice, but adversity doth best discover virtue. "

Sir Francis Bacon
" Silence is the virtue of fools. "

Sir Francis Bacon
" Recommend to your children virtue; that alone can make them happy, not gold. "

Ludwig van Beethoven
" It's important that someone celebrate our existence... People are the only mirror we have to see ourselves in. The domain of all meaning. All virtue, all evil, are contained only in people. There is none in the universe at large. Solitary confinement is a punishment in every human culture. "

Lois McMaster Bujold
" Make a virtue of necessity. "

Geoffrey Chaucer
" Man seems to be capable of great virtues but not of small virtues; capable of defying his torturer but not of keeping his temper. "

G. K. Chesterton
" He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire. "

Sir Winston Churchill
" Repression is not the way to virtue. When people restain themselves out of fear, their lives are by necessity diminished. Only through freely chosen discipline can life be enjoyed and still kept within the bounds of reason. "

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
" So much of our lives is given over to the consideration of our imperfections that there is no time to improve our imaginary virtues. The truth is we only perfect our vices, and man is a worse creature when he dies than he was when he was born. "

Edward Dahlberg
" But what has America to boast? What are the graces or the virtues which distinguish its inhabitants? What are their triumphs in war, or their inventions in peace? "

Thomas Day
" Let us remember, there is a people, who share the government and name of Britons; among whom the cruelty of Sparta is renewed without its virtue. "

Thomas Day
" We boast of the gentleness of our manners, and think the rugged virtues of antiquity ill-adapted to the genius of the present times. "

Thomas Day
