Liberality quotes by Victor Davis Hanson
#1. It is rather the nature of America - our freewheeling, outspoken, prosperous, liberty-loving citizens extend equality to women, homosexuals, minorities, and almost anyone who comes to our shores, and thereby create desire and with it shame for that desire. Indeed, it is worse still than that: Precisely because we worry publicly that we are insensitive, our enemies scoff privately that we in fact are too sensitive - what we think is liberality and magnanimity they see as license and decadence. If we don't have confidence in who we are, why should they? #Quote by Victor Davis Hanson
Liberality quotes by William Shakespeare
#2. Is not birth, beauty, good shape, discourse, Manhood, learning, gentleness, virtue, youth, liberality, and such like, the spice and salt that season a man #Quote by William Shakespeare
Liberality quotes by James Joseph Walsh
#3. Dr. White quotes with great confidence and absolute assurance a Papal decree issued in the year 1300 by Pope Boniface VIII., which forbade the mutilation of the human body and consequently hampered all possibility of progress in anatomy for {30} several important centuries in the history of modern science. Indeed, this supposed Papal prohibition of dissection is definitely stated to have precluded all opportunity for the proper acquisition of anatomical knowledge until the first half of the sixteenth century, when the Golden Age of modern anatomy set in. This date being coincident with the spread of the movement known as the Protestant Reformation, many people at once conclude that somehow the liberality of spirit that then came into the world, and is supposed at least to have put an end to all intolerance, #Quote by James Joseph Walsh
Liberality quotes by John Calvin
#4. However many blessings we expect from God, His infinite liberality will always exceed all our wishes and our thoughts. #Quote by John Calvin
Liberality quotes by Horace Mann
#5. Generosity during life is a very different thing from generosity in the hour of death; one proceeds from genuine liberality and benevolence, the other from pride or fear. #Quote by Horace Mann
Liberality quotes by Will Durant
#6. The qualities of character can be arranged in triads, in each of which the first and last qualities will be extremes and vices, and the middle quality a virtue or an excellence. So between cowardice and rashness is courage; between stinginess and extravagance is liberality; between sloth and greed is ambition; between humility and pride is modesty; between secrecy and loquacity, honesty; between moroseness and buffoonery, good humor; between quarrelsomeness and flattery, friendship; between Hamlet's indecisiveness and Quixote's impulsiveness is self-control.49 "Right," then, in ethics or conduct, is not different from "right" in mathematics or engineering; it means correct, fit, what works best to the best result. The #Quote by Will Durant
Liberality quotes by Aristotle.
#7. Wisdom or intelligence and prudence are intellectual, liberality and temperance are moral virtues. #Quote by Aristotle.
Liberality quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#8. The sixteenth-century schism was really a belated revolt of the thirteenth-century pessimists. It was a back-wash of the old Augustinian Puritanism against the Aristotelian liberality. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Liberality quotes by Mark Twain
#9. I will remark, here, that James W. Paige, the little bright-eyed, alert, smartly dressed inventor of the machine, is a most extraordinary compound of business thrift and commercial insanity; of cold calculation and jejune sentimentality; of veracity and falsehood; of fidelity and treachery; of nobility and baseness; of pluck and cowardice; of wasteful liberality and pitiful stinginess; of solid sense and weltering moonshine; of towering genius and trivial ambitions; of merciful bowels and a petrified heart; of colossal vanity and - But there the opposites stop. His vanity stands alone, sky-piercing, as sharp of outline as an Egyptian monolith. It is the only unpleasant feature in him that is not modified, softened, compensated by some converse characteristic. #Quote by Mark Twain
Liberality quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#10. With wisdom we shall learn liberality. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Liberality quotes by Vinnie Tesla
#11. Perhaps if you were to refrain from deploying the phrase 'ignorant
buffoon' with a liberality most writers reserve for 'it' and 'the,'
you would find a readier audience. #Quote by Vinnie Tesla
Liberality quotes by Gautama Buddha
#12. Conquer anger by love, evil by good; Conquer the miser with liberality, and the liar with truth. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Liberality quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#13. And there is nothing wastes so rapidly as liberality, for even whilst you exercise it you lose the power to do so, and so become either poor or despised, or else - in avoiding poverty - rapacious and hated. And a leader should guard himself, above all things, against being despised and hated; and liberality leads you to both. Therefore it is wiser to have a reputation for austerity which brings reproach without hatred, than to be compelled through seeking a reputation for liberality to incur a name for rapacity which begets reproach with hatred. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Liberality quotes by William Shakespeare
Well, well! Why, have you any discretion? Have you any
eyes? Do you know what a man is? Is not birth, beauty, good
shape, discourse, manhood, learning, gentleness, virtue, youth,
liberality, and such like, the spice and salt that season a man?
Ay, a minc'd man; and then to be bak'd with no date in
the pie, for then the man's date is out. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Liberality quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#15. The office of liberality consisteth in giving with judgment. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Liberality quotes by Theodore Parker
#16. That which is called liberality is frequently nothing more than the vanity of giving. #Quote by Theodore Parker
Liberality quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#17. Avarice is more opposite to economy than liberality. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Liberality quotes by William Penn
#18. Frugality is good if liberality be joined with it. The first is leaving off superfluous expenses; the last is bestowing them to the benefit of others that need. The first without the last begets covetousness; the last without the first begets prodigality. #Quote by William Penn
Liberality quotes by Thomas Sprat
#19. In all works of liberality something more is to be considered besides the occasion of the givers; and that is the occasion of the receivers. #Quote by Thomas Sprat
Liberality quotes by Socrates
#20. There is one way, then, in which a man can be free from all anxiety about the fate of his soul - if in life he has abandoned bodily pleasures and adornments, as foreign to his purpose and likely to do more harm than good, and has devoted himself to the pleasures of acquiring knowledge, and so by decking his soul not with a borrowed beauty but with its own - with self-control, and goodness, and courage, and liberality, and truth - has fitted himself to await his journey in the next world. #Quote by Socrates
Liberality quotes by Forrest Church
#21. America's egalitarian mandate reflects the liberality of the creator, and thus countermands, by divine witness, all feudal and aristocratic structures. It also parallels the Jewish concept of "repair the world", or Tikkun ha'olam, which holds that the human spirit is in partnership with God to help finish the work of creation. #Quote by Forrest Church
Liberality quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#22. Liberality in gifts and expenditure which, since his followers lived off it, was extolled as the most admired attribute of a noble. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Liberality quotes by Henry Addington
#23. I hate liberality - nine times out of ten it is cowardice, and the tenth time lack of principle. #Quote by Henry Addington
Liberality quotes by Giraldus Cambrensis
#24. No one of this nation ever begs, for the houses of all are common to all; and they consider liberality and hospitality amongst the first virtues. #Quote by Giraldus Cambrensis
Liberality quotes by Philip Neri
#25. As soon as we are stripped of the sordid garb of avarice, we shall be clothed with the royal and imperial vest of the opposite virtue, liberality. #Quote by Philip Neri
Liberality quotes by Stephen Poplin
#26. I have met with many souls who were afraid to speak their minds; from a vague anxiousness to a choking reaction. This restriction may come from a past life where this person was threatened, beaten, strangled, tortured or killed for expressing something unpopular or for declaring some truth. Heretics, those who took controversial positions, especially against the established Church, were the victims of terrible persecutions - and worse. Heretic ironically comes from the Greek hairetikos, meaning 'able to choose.' Thousands were condemned, then, for their ability to choose differently. And so, then and now, we all must choose standing safely with the system or defiantly and dangerously against the herd mentality/ machine/system – yes, perennial lessons of conformity or individuality. History can attest that Free Will and liberality are not always welcome in certain groups and societies. We must not be dissuaded, we can still shine our light. #Quote by Stephen Poplin
Liberality quotes by Henry James
#27. Only a drummer-boy in a ballad or a story could have been so in the thick of the fight. She was taken into the confidence of passions on which she fixed just the stare she might have had for images bounding across the wall in the slide of a magic-lantern. Her little world was phantasmagoric - strange shadows dancing on a sheet. It was as if the whole performance had been given for her - a mite of a half-scared infant in a great dim theatre. She was in short introduced to life with a liberality in which the selfishness of others found its account, and there was nothing to avert the sacrifice but the modesty of her youth. #Quote by Henry James
Liberality quotes by Rick Perlstein
#28. Goldwater's approach to any political problem invariably derived from the evidence of his own eyes. #Quote by Rick Perlstein
Liberality quotes by Edward Gibbon
#29. A nation ignorant of the equal benefits of liberty and law, must be awed by the flashes of arbitrary power: the cruelty of a despot will assume the character of justice; his profusion, of liberality; his obstinacy, of firmness. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Liberality quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#30. There is clearly a feeling abroad that God smiled on our beginnings, and that we should return to them as we can. If we really did attempt to return to them, we would find Moses as well as Christ, Calvin, and his legions of intellectual heirs. And we would find a recurrent, passionate, insistence on bounty or liberality, mercy and liberality, on being kind and liberal, liberal and bountiful, and enjoying the great blessings God has promised to liberality to the poor. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Liberality quotes by George Washington
#31. The liberality of sentiment toward each other, which marks every political and religious denomination of men in this country, stands unparalleled in the history of nations. #Quote by George Washington
Liberality quotes by A.C. Grayling
#32. It takes a certain ingenuous faith - but I have it - to believe that people who read and reflect more likely than not come to judge things with liberality and truth. #Quote by A.C. Grayling
Liberality quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#33. Prayer is not a hard requirement - it is the natural duty of a creature to its creator, the simplest homage that human need can pay to divine liberality. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Liberality quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#34. Behold the superlative liberality of the Lord Jesus, for he hath given us his all. Although a tithe of his possessions would have made a universe of angels rich beyond all thought, yet was he not content until he had given us all that he had. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Liberality quotes by Andrew Jackson
#35. Freemasonry is a moral order, instituted by virtuous men, with the praiseworthy design of recalling to our remembrance the most sublime truths, in the midst of the most innocent and social pleasures, founded on liberality, brotherly love and charity. #Quote by Andrew Jackson
Liberality quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#36. Whenever I hear people talking about "liberal ideas," I am always astounded that men should love to fool themselves with empty sounds. An idea should never be liberal; it must be vigorous, positive, and without loose ends so that it may fulfill its divine mission and be productive. The proper place for liberality is in the realm of the emotions. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Liberality quotes by Abigail Adams
#37. I can hear of the brilliant accomplishments of any of my sex with pleasure and rejoice in that liberality of sentiment which acknowledges them. #Quote by Abigail Adams
Liberality quotes by Sun Tzu
#38. The end and aim of spying in all its five varieties is knowledge of the enemy; and this knowledge can only be derived, in the first instance, from the converted spy. Hence it is essential that the converted spy be treated with the utmost liberality. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Liberality quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
#39. Perhaps one day, all these conflicts will end, and it won't be because of great statesmen or churches or organisations like this one. It'll be because people have changed. They'll be like you, Puffin. More a mixture. So why not become a mongrel? It's healthy. #Quote by Kazuo Ishiguro
Liberality quotes by Albert Pike
#40. Toleration, holding that every other man has the same right to his opinion and faith that we have to ours; and liberality, holding that as no human being can with certainty say, in the clash and conflict of hostile faiths and creeds, what is truth, or that he is surely in possession of it, so everyone should feel that it is quite possible that another equally honest and sincere with himself, and yet holding the contrary opinion, may himself be in possession of the truth. #Quote by Albert Pike
Liberality quotes by Aristotle
#41. For liberality resides not in the multitude of the gifts but in the state of character of the giver. #Quote by Aristotle
Liberality quotes by George Washington
#42. I rejoice in a belief that intellectual light will spring up in the dark corners of the earth; that freedom of enquiry will produce liberality of conduct; that mankind will reverse the absurd position that the many were, made for the few; and that they will not continue slaves in one part of the globe, when they can become freemen in another. #Quote by George Washington
Liberality quotes by E.B. White
#43. The world is full of people who have never, since childhood, met an open doorway with an open mind. #Quote by E.B. White
Liberality quotes by Robert Browning
#44. Hatred and cark and care, what place have they / In yon blue liberality of heaven?. #Quote by Robert Browning
Liberality quotes by Dana Gioia
#45. In America, the term younger poet is applied with chivalric liberality. It can be used to describe anyone not yet collecting a Social Security pension. #Quote by Dana Gioia
Liberality quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#46. Liberality is not giving much, but giving wisely. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Liberality quotes by Jean De La Bruyere
#47. Liberality consists less in giving a great deal than in gifts well-timed. #Quote by Jean De La Bruyere
Liberality quotes by William Hazlitt
#48. Believe all the good you can of everyone. Do not measure others by yourself. If they have advantages which you have not, let your liberality keep pace with their good fortune. Envy no one, and you need envy no one. #Quote by William Hazlitt
Liberality quotes by Edward Gibbon
#49. Justice, humanity, or political wisdom, are qualities they are too little acquainted with in themselves, to appreciate them in others. Valor will acquire their esteem, and liberality will purchase their suffrage; but the first of these merits is often lodged in the most savage breasts; the latter can only exert itself at the expense of the public; and both may be turned against the possessor of the throne, by the ambition of a daring rival. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Liberality quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#50. There is a phrase of facile liberality uttered again and again at ethical societies and parliaments of religion: "the religions of the earth differ in rites and forms, but they are the same in what they teach." It is false; it is the opposite of the fact. The religions of the earth do not greatly differ in rites and forms; they do greatly differ in what they teach. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Liberality quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#51. It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Liberality quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#52. The author of IRR, who worshipped the King, said he had the valor of Hector, the magnanimity of Achilles, the liberality of Titus, the eloquence of Nestor, and the prudence of Ulysses; that he was the equal of Alexander and not inferior to Roland. But later historians tend to picture him rather as a remorseless, kindless villain. He was probably not a pleasant or a lovable character; none of the Plantagenets were. But a great soldier and a great commander he certainly was. He possessed that one quality without which nothing else in a commander counts: the determination to win. To this everything else - mercy, moderation, tact - was sacrificed. The avarice that so horrifies his critics was not simple greed: it was a quartermaster's greed for his army. His massacre of the prisoners was not simple cruelty, but a deliberate reminder to Saladin to keep faith with the terms agreed to, which that great opponent understood and respected. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Liberality quotes by Zahi Hawass
#54. As scientists, we keep an open mind, but we have to base our ideas about the past on archaeological evidence. #Quote by Zahi Hawass
Liberality quotes by George Washington
#55. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations of justice and liberty. #Quote by George Washington
Liberality quotes by George Washington
#56. Nothing can illustrate these observations more forcibly, than a recollection of the happy conjuncture of times and circumstances, under which our Republic assumed its rank among the Nations; The foundation of our Empire was not laid in the gloomy age of Ignorance and Superstition, but at an Epoch when the rights of mankind were better understood and more clearly defined, than at any former period, the researches of the human mind, after social happiness, have been carried to a great extent, the Treasures of knowledge, acquired by the labours of Philosophers, Sages and Legislatures, through a long succession of years, are laid open for our use, and their collected wisdom may be happily applied in the Establishment of our forms of Government; the free cultivation of Letters, the unbounded extension of Commerce, the progressive refinement of Manners, the growing liberality of sentiment... have had a meliorating influence on mankind and increased the blessings of Society. At this auspicious period, the United States came into existence as a Nation, and if their Citizens should not be completely free and happy, the fault will be entirely their own.

[Circular to the States, 8 June 1783 - Writings 26:484--89] #Quote by George Washington
Liberality quotes by Chretien De Troyes
#57. [G]enerosity ... is the mistress and queen that gives lustre to every virtue, as it is not hard to prove. Where could one find a man, however powerful and rich, who isn't blamed if he is mean? And who, though not appreciated for his many other qualities, doesn't earn praise by his generosity? Liberality on its own makes a worthy man; and that can't be achieved by high birth, courtliness, wisdom, nobility, wealth, strength, chivalry, boldness, authority, beauty, or anything else. But just as the rose is more lovely than any other flower when it opens fresh and new, so where liberality appears it surpasses all other virtues and increases five hundred times the qualities it finds in a worthy, upright man. #Quote by Chretien De Troyes
Liberality quotes by Miguel De Cervantes
#58. In short, virtue cannot live where envy reigns, nor liberality subsist with niggardliness. #Quote by Miguel De Cervantes
Liberality quotes by Anthony Head
#59. I have a very open mind. I believe that there's a spirit world. I believe that there's a lot of stuff out there that we don't know about, don't want to understand, and sometimes we don't want to understand it. #Quote by Anthony Head
