Duty is what one expects from others.
It is just as hard to do your duty when men are sneering at you as when they are shooting at you.
Is duty a mere sport, or an employ? Life an entrusted talent or a toy?
There is not a moment without some duty.
All higher motives, ideals, conceptions, sentiments in a man are of no account if they do not come forward to strengthen him for the better discharge of the duties which devolve upon him in the ordinary affairs of life.
The best security for people’s doing their duty is that they should not know anything else to do.
The reward of doing one duty is the power to do another.
We must find our duties in what comes to us, not in what we imagine might have been.
The reward of one duty done is the power to fulfill another.
Do your duty and leave the rest to the gods.
