on being honorable

As I have mentioned here before, I subscribe to Liberty Tree Quotes, receiving an e-mail with three of them most days. They are usually good, sometimes great and once in a while uninspiring. The three below came in this morning.  I felt they were worth sharing. I re-ordered them, but otherwise they are just as they arrived in my mailbox.

    – Ted

    “Duties are not performed for duty’s sake,
    but because their neglect would make the man uncomfortable.
    A man performs but one duty —
    the duty of contenting his spirit,
    the duty of making himself agreeable to himself.”
    — Mark Twain
    [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835-1910) American author and humorist

    “Activate yourself to duty
    by remembering your position, who you are,
    and what you have obliged yourself to be.”
    — Thomas Kempis
    [Thomas à Kempis] (c.1380-1471) Catholic author

“But what is Freedom?  Rightly understood,
A universal licence to be good.”
