First installment. Quotations on goodness. Internet search today


God's dream is that you and I and all of us will realize that we are family, that we are made for togetherness, for goodness, and for compassion.
Desmond Tutu

A good person can make another person good; it means that goodness will elicit goodness in the society; other persons will also be good.
Bhumibol Adulyadej

Human greatness does not lie in wealth or power, but in character and goodness. People are just people, and all people have faults and shortcomings, but all of us are born with a basic goodness.
Anne Frank

Goodness does not consist in greatness, but greatness in goodness.
Athenaeus

Of all virtues and dignities of the mind, goodness is the greatest, being the character of the Deity; and without it, man is a busy, mischievous, wretched thing.
Francis Bacon

Each person has inside a basic decency and goodness. If he listens to it and acts on it, he is giving a great deal of what it is the world needs most. It is not complicated but it takes courage. It takes courage for a person to listen to his own goodness and act on it.
Pablo Casals

That which you create in beauty and goodness and truth lives on for all time to come. Don't spend your life accumulating material objects that will only turn to dust and ashes.
Denis Waitley

In Christ we see a maturity of love that flowers in self-sacrifice and forgiveness; a maturity of power that never swerves from the ideal of service; a maturity of goodness that overcomes every temptation, and, of course, we see the ultimate victory of life over death itself.
Vincent Nichols

One goes through school, college, medical school and one's internship learning little or nothing about goodness but a good deal about success.
Ashley Montagu

I happen to be a Christian, but I know that there is one God. People worshipping goodness and love and kindness and truth are worshipping the same God.
Anne Lamott

Goodness is uneventful. It does not flash, it glows.
Ray Stannard Baker

It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.
Leo Tolstoy

We are each made for goodness, love and compassion. Our lives are transformed as much as the world is when we live with these truths.
Desmond Tutu

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

By their innocence and goodness, by their boundless capacity for forgiveness, and by the sheer power of their faith and hope, children redeem their parents, bringing out their best selves.
Cass Sunstein

True religion is real living; living with all one's soul, with all one's goodness and righteousness.
Albert Einstein

It's better to be good than evil, but one achieves goodness at a terrific cost.
Stephen King

There is not enough love and goodness in the world to permit giving any of it away to imaginary beings.
Friedrich Nietzsche
