Famous quotes containing the word deeds:

    Towards him they bend
    With awful reverence prone; and as a God
    Extoll him equal to the highest in Heav’n:
    Nor fail’d they to express how much they prais’d,
    That for the general safety he despis’d
    His own: for neither do the Spirits damn’d
    Loose all thir vertue; lest bad men should boast
    Thir specious deeds on earth, which glory excites,
    Or close ambition varnisht o’er with zeal.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    Our deeds disguise us. People need endless time to try on their deeds, until each knows the proper deeds for him to do. But every day, every hour, rushes by. There is no time.
    Haniel Long (1888–1956)

    ‘Tis a lucky day, boy, and we’ll do good deeds on’t.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
