Generosity Quotes

Quotes about Generosity

  • "Generosity is a quality that many men admire. But if a prince develops a reputation for generosity, he will ruin his state. A reputation for generosity requires outward lavishness, which eventually depletes all of the prince’s resources. In the end, the prince will be forced to burden his people with excessive taxes in order to raise the money to maintain his reputation for generosity. Ultimately, the prince’s liberality will make the people despise and resent him." ~Niccolò Machiavelli

    Honorable Quotes

    Quotes about Honorable

    • A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing. George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950) Irish dramatist & socialist.
    • The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. Ralph Waldo Emerson
    • So many people think themselves no longer capable to be Christians because they are unchaste, weak, and backsliding. But in fact there is a far greater number of people who will never be Christians because they think themselves just, honorable, and pure.
    • Whom, then, do I call educated? First, those who control circumstances instead of being mastered by them, those who meet all occasions manfully and act in accordance with intelligent thinking, those who are honorable in all dealings, who treat good-naturedly persons and things that are disagreeable; and furthermore, those who hold their pleasures under control and are not overcome by misfortune; finally, those who are not spoiled by success.
    • One of the common failings among honorable people is a failure to appreciate how thoroughly dishonorable some other people can be, and how dangerous it is to trust them. Thomas Sowell.
    • Nowadays there's no honor, only drama. Your friend today can be your enemy tomorrow.
    • When you say 'I love you', you are making a promise with someone else's heart. Try to honor it.

    • In every person who comes near you look for what is good and strong; honor that; try to imitate it, and your faults will drop off like dead leaves when their time comes. John Ruskin (1819-1900) English Art Critic
    • It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them. Mark Twain
    • Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of man you are. Thomas Carlyle
    • The shortest and surest way to live with honor in the world is to be in reality what we would appear to be. Socrates (469-399 BC) Greek Philosopher
    • You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor. Aristotle
    • Pay no attention to what the critics say. A statue has never been erected in honor of a critic. Jean Sibelius
    • No person was ever honored for what they received. Honor has been the reward for what they gave. Calvin Coolidge
    • All I know is that I am a product of God and all I can do is the best I can to thank Him and honor Him and try to grow in Him, step by step. Bob Smith 
    • UNkind Christians are the Wrong kind. They dishonor the name.
    • Life was a lot simpler when what we honored was father and mother rather than all major credit cards. Robert Orben
    • A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing. George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950) Irish dramatist & socialist.
    • The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. Ralph Waldo Emerson
    • My kid saved your honor student. God
    • Every society honors its live conformists and its dead troublemakers. Mignon Mclaughlin
    • Teachers who educate children deserve more honor than parents who merely gave them birth; for bare life is furnished by the one, the other ensures a good life. Aristotle 
    • God has a perfect timing for everything. Learn to wait on Him. This brings Him honor, and it brings you peace. (see Psalm 27:14)
    • Here lies the tremendous mystery - that God should be all-powerful, yet refuse to coerce. He summons us to cooperation. We are honored in being given the opportunity to participate in his good deeds. Remember how He asked for help in performing his miracles: Fill the waterpots, stretch out your hand, distribute the loaves. Elisabeth Elliot
