There is no greatness where simplicity, goodness and truth are absent.
Wisdom and goodness to the vile seem vile.
Where the Mind is biggest, the Heart, the Senses, Magnanimity, Charity, Tolerance, Kindliness, and the rest of them scarcely have room to breathe.
What a strange illusion it is to suppose that beauty is goodness!
Virtue is bold, and goodness never fearful.
There is sorrow in the world, but goodness too; and goodness that is not greenness, either, no more than sorrow is.
There is not sufficient love and goodness in the world to permit us to give some of it away to imaginary beings.
There can be no true goodness nor true love without the utmost clear-sightedness.
Mere goodness can achieve little against the power of nature.
Man’s goodness is a flame that can be hidden but never extinguished.
It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.
Goodness is the only investment that never fails.
