Quotations Regarding THE MAN OF LIFE UPRIGHT


To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
Buddha

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.
Buddha


Virtue is bold, and goodness never fearful.
William Shakespeare


To practice five things under all circumstances constitutes perfect virtue; these five are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness.
Confucius


The firm, the enduring, the simple, and the modest are near to virtue.
Confucius


The superior man thinks always of virtue; the common man thinks of comfort.
Confucius

Virtue is not left to stand alone. He who practices it will have neighbors.
Confucius


Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.
C. S. Lewis


In truth, politeness is artificial good humor, it covers the natural want of it, and ends by rendering habitual a substitute nearly equivalent to the real virtue.
Thomas Jefferson


There is a natural aristocracy among men. The grounds of this are virtue and talents.
Thomas Jefferson
