When a pony does a good deed, he gets a horn and he becomes a unicorn and poops out cotton candy until he forgets he’s magical and then his horn falls off. Black unicorns become zebras.
After the deed is done, one always becomes clever and philosophical.hans frank
Nothing so evil as money ever grew to be current among men. This lays cities low, this drives men from their homes, this trains and warps honest souls till they set themselves to works of shame; this still teaches folk to practise villainies, and to know every godless deed. But all the men who wrought this thing for hire have made it sure that, soon or late, they shall pay the price.Sophocles
As thou these ashes, little brook! will bear Into the Avon, Avon to the tide Of Severn, Severn to the narrow seas, Into main ocean they, this deed accurst, An emblem yields to friends and enemies How the bold teacher's doctrine, sanctified By truth, shall spread throughout the world dispersed.william wordsworth
We'll take the good-will for the deed.
Better to leave undone, than by our deed Acquire too high a fame, when him we serve's away.william shakespeare
Opinions alter, manners change , creeds rise and fall, but the moral law is written on the tablets of eternity . For every false word or unrighteous deed, for cruelty and oppression, for lust or vanity , the price has to be paid at last.james anthony froude
Giving alms is only a virtuous deed when you give money that you yourself worked to get.leo tolstoy
Santa Claus is anyone who loves another and seeks to make them happy; who gives himself by thought or word or deed in every gift that he bestows; who shares his joys with those who are sad; whose hand is never closed against the needy; whose arm is ever outstretched to aid the week; whose sympathy is quick and genuine in time of trouble; who recognizes a comrade and brother in every man he meets upon life's common road; who lives his life throughout the entire year in the Christmas spirit.
The last temptation is the greatest treason: to do the right deed for the wrong reason.
If thou deemest that (the path of) understanding is more excellent than (the path of) action, O Janardana (Krishna), why then dost thou urge me to do this savage deed, O Kesava (Krishna)?
These hells , and hundreds and thousands of others, are the places in which sinners pay the penalty of their crimes . As numerous as are the offences that men commit, so many are the hells in which they are punished : and all who deviate from the duties imposed upon them by their caste and condition, whether in thought , word , or deed , are sentenced to punishment in the regions of the damned.
The words of a deed are to be construed like those of any other writing, according to the ordinary use and application of them.
The nicest feeling in the world is to do a good deed anonymously-and have somebody find out.
Now we will no longer concede so easily that anyone has the truth ; the rigorous methods of inquiry have spread sufficient distrust and caution, so that we experience every man who represents opinions violently in word and deed as any enemy of our present culture, or at least as a backward person. And in fact, the fervor about having the truth counts very little today in relation to that other fervor, more gentle and silent, to be sure, for seeking the truth, a search that does not tire of learning afresh and testing anew.
