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.
A good person can make another person good; it means that goodness will elicit goodness in the society; other persons will also be good.
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.
Goodness does not consist in greatness, but greatness in goodness.
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.
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.
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.
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.
One goes through school, college, medical school and one's internship learning little or nothing about goodness but a good deal about success.
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.
Goodness is uneventful. It does not flash, it glows.
Ray Stannard Baker
It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.
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.
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.
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.
True religion is real living; living with all one's soul, with all one's goodness and righteousness.
It's better to be good than evil, but one achieves goodness at a terrific cost.
There is not enough love and goodness in the world to permit giving any of it away to imaginary beings.
