Famous quotes containing the word deeds:

    You are by nature much better at advising others than yourself. I draw my proof from deeds not words.
    Aeschylus (525–456 B.C.)

    The chief difference between words and deeds is that words are always intended for men for their approbation, but deeds can be done only for God.
    Leo Tolstoy (1828–1910)

    I did the dragon’s will until you came
    Because I had fancied love a casual
    Improvisation, or a settled game
    That followed if I let the kerchief fall:
    Those deeds were best that gave the minute wings
    And heavenly music if they gave it wit.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
