Famous quotes containing the word conduct:

    There is no question what the roll of honor in America is. The roll of honor consists of the names of men who have squared their conduct by ideals of duty.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    Repentance keeps my heart impure;
    But what am I that dare
    Fancy that I can
    Better conduct myself or have more
    Sense than a common man?
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The conduct of a man, who studies philosophy in this careless manner, is more truly sceptical than that of any one, who feeling in himself an inclination to it, is yet so over-whelm’d with doubts and scruples, as totally to reject it. A true sceptic will be diffident of his philosophical doubts, as well as of his philosophical conviction; and will never refuse any innocent satisfaction, which offers itself, upon account of either of them.
    David Hume (1711–1776)
