Jesus Christ was an extremist for love, truth and goodness.
It is better to live poorly upon the fruits of God’s goodness than live plentifully upon the products of our own sin.t. b. joshua
goodness does not consist in greatness, but greatness in goodness.athenaeus
His goodness stands approved,Unchanged from day to day;I'll drop my burden at His feet,And bear a song away.Philip Doddridge
A leader is one who, out of madness or goodness, volunteers to take upon himself the woe of the people. There are few men so foolish, hence the erratic quality of leadership in the world.john updike
Wisdom and goodness are twin-born. One heart must hold both sisters, never seen apart.william cowper
So distinguished by a Divine wisdom, power, and goodness, are God's works of creation and providence, that all nature, by the gentle voices of her skies and streams, of her fields and forests, as well as by the roar of breakers, the crash of thunder, the rumbling earthquake, the fiery volcano, and the destroying hurricane, echoes the closing sentences of this angel hymn, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, the whole earth is full of His glory!
There is always more goodness in the world than there appears to be, because goodness is of its very nature modest and retiring.evelyn beatrice hall
I thank the goodness and the graceWhich on my birth have smiled,And made me in these Christian days,A happy English child.ann taylor
Great occasions rally great principles, and brace the mind to a lofty bearing, a bearing that is even above itself. But trials that make no occasion at all, leave it to show the goodness and beauty it has in its own disposition. And here precisely is the superhuman glory of Christ as a character, that He is just as perfect, exhibits just as great a spirit in little trials as in great ones.horace bushnell
Unfortunately, goodness and honor are rather the exception than the rule among exceptional men, not to speak of geniuses.cesare lombroso
By experience; by a sense of human frailty; by a perception of "the soul of goodness in things evil;" by a cheerful trust in human nature; by a strong sense of God's love; by long and disciplined realization of the atoning love of Christ; only thus can we get a free, manly, large, princely spirit of forgiveness.frederick william robertson
I have seen the mystics play there Once or twice but I knew they had a reason Enchantment plays it's cards all right Hand in hand with the working of the seasons Legends can be now and forever Teaching us to love for goodness sake Legends can be now and forever Loved by the sun, loved by the sunjon anderson
Our goodness comes solely from thinking on goodness; our wickedness from thinking on wickedness. We too are the victims of our own contemplation.john jay chapman
In men whom men condemn as ill I find so much of goodness still. In men whom men pronounce divine I find so much of sin and blot I do not dare to draw a line Between the two, where God has not.joaquin miller
It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.
A piece of simple goodness a letter gushing from the heart; a beautiful unstudied vindication of the worth and untiring sweetness of human nature a record of the invulnerability of man, armed with high purpose, sanctified by truth.
The twig is so easily bended I have banished the rule and the rod: I have taught them the goodness of knowledge, They have taught me the goodness of God; My heart is the dungeon of darkness, Where I shut them for breaking a rule; My frown is sufficient correction; My love is the law of the school.
goodness to parents, and paying visits to ones own relatives, will ease the accounting on the Day of Judgement.
