Famous quotes containing the word earned:

    I want you to consider this distinction as you go forward in life. Being male is not enough; being a man is a right to be earned and an honor to be cherished. I cannot tell you how to earn that right or deserve that honor. . . but I can tell you that the formation of your manhood must be a conscious act governed by the highest vision of the man you want to be.
    Kent Nerburn (20th century)

    Toiling,—rejoicing,—sorrowing,
    Onward through life he goes;
    Each morning sees some task begin,
    Each evening sees its close;
    Something attempted, something done,
    Has earned a night’s repose.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)

    People who give us their full confidence believe that they have thereby earned a right to ours. This is a fallacy; one does not acquire rights through gifts.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
