You can’t escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.
What a pleasure life would be to live if everybody would try to do only half of what he expects others to do.
One never notices what has been done; one can only see what remains to be done.
Who escapes a duty, avoids a gain.
I declare my belief that it is not your duty to do anything that is not to your own interest. Whenever it is unquestionably your duty to do a thing, then it will benefit you to perform that duty.
We ought to use the best means we can to be well informed of our duty.
Duty is that mode of action on the part of the individual which constitutes the best possible application of his capacity to the general benefit.
Next to doing the right thing, the most important thing is to let people know you are doing the right thing.
Knowledge of our duties is the most essential part of the philosophy of life. If you escape duty you avoid action. The world demands results.
A sense of duty is useful in work, but offensive in personal relations.
