How oft the sight of means to do ill deeds makes ill deeds done!
The evil that men do lives after them;The good is oft interred with their bones.
Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often.
The deed is everything, the glory nothing.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Talking isn't doing. It is a kind of good deed to say well; and yet words are not deeds.
Deeds rather than words express my concept of the part religion should play in everyday life. I have watched constantly that in our movie work the highest moral and spiritual standards are upheld, whether it deals with fable or with stories of living action.
The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention.
Noble deeds are most estimable when hidden.
Our deeds determine us, as much as we determine our deeds...
Little deeds of kindness, Little words of love, Make our pleasant earth below Like the heaven above.
Julia Abigail Fletcher Carney
It was my care to make my life illustrious not by words more than by deeds.
Just as the sand-dunes, heaped one upon another, hide each the first, so in life the former deeds are quickly hidden by those that follow after.
He who upholds Truth with all the might of his power, He who upholds Truth the utmost in his word and deed, He, indeed, is Thy most valued helper, O Mazda Ahura!
It is our will That thus enchains us to permitted ill. We might be otherwise, we might be all We dream of happy, high, majestical. Where is the love, beauty and truth we seek, But in our mind? and if we were not weak, Should we be less in deed than in desire?
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Our deeds are like children that are born to us; they live and act apart from our own will. Nay, children may be strangled, but deeds never: they have an indestructible life both in and out of our consciousness;
Pleasure and love are the pinions of great deeds.
Know, dear little one! our Father Will no gentle deed disdain: Love on the cold earth beginning Lives divine in Heaven again, While the angel hearts that beat there Still all tender thoughts retain.
Adelaide Anne Procter
The attempt and not the deed confounds us.
What you do is what matters, not what you think or say or plan.
A strong and well-constituted man digests his experiences (deeds and misdeeds all included) just as he digests his meats, even when he has some tough morsels to swallow.
