Some Thoughts On Goodness From Various Authors

“It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.”

Mahatma Gandhi

“There is no greatness where there is not simplicity, goodness, and truth.”

Leo Tolstoy

“Do not act as if you were going to live ten thousand years. Death hangs over you. While you live, while it is in your power, be good.”

Marcus Aurelius

“When I was young, my ambition was to be one of the people who made a difference in this world. My hope is to leave the world a little better for having been there. ”

Jim Henson

“Goodness is about what you do. Not who you pray to.”

Terry Pratchett
